Vintage-Inspired Floral Headbands: Love 'Em or Leave 'Em?

Fashion flashback alert! The hippie-chic look is back in full force these days, thanks in part to the resurgence of floral headpieces.

We first saw the accessory at the Coachella Music Festival, where Vanessa Hudgens and Paris Hilton both sported Cult Gaia rose crowns ($75). Although we weren’t shocked to spot the topper at the festival since Woodstock-worthy ensembles are encouraged, we were surprised to see these babies on the red carpet.

For a party in Beverly Hills last week, Ashlee Simpson finished off her white Free People maxi dress with a floral headpiece; similarly, Kirsten Dunst brought some whimsical flair to the Cannes Film Festival thanks to the blooming Dolce & Gabbana headband she teamed with her crisp white textured sheath.

Any type of headpiece is statement making — whether it’s a fedora, fascinator or even a visor — but this style definitely adds a distinct vibe to an outfit. However, we recommend proceeding with caution: follow Dunst and Simpson’s leads by pairing the groovy piece with modern clothes so you don’t look too costumey. Tell us: Would you wear a floral headband? Vote in our poll below!

I’ve been loving these flower headbands! Lace & Mint are my favorite this year! but these are super cool and go perfect with a sweet dress or flowy shorts!
