Whether it’s an embellished clip or metallic ribbon, these accents make it appear as if you put serious effort into your hairstyle.

This year the blooms were bigger than ever. From the vibrant pink, yellow, and purple buds spotted at Desigual to the pastel buds at Marchesa, the flower crown inspiration was plentiful. Wear the look now with a single blossom and break out the full crowns come spring.
