The Real Trend Tuesday: How to wear a flower crown out
Again, my apologies for missing the Trend Tuesday on Tuesday. But things are back on track and I have the third flower crown trend style for you this June. Although I do love how Lana wears her crowns, they are a little over-the-top, 60’s flower child for me. I might be a Californian at heart, but that’s also made me hyper sensitive to the “H” word: hippie. In attempt to avoid the all flower power stereotype, I did everything I would look like a modern designer in 2014. Think it can be done?
My lovely crown by Crowned has been traveling around with me all over this month. I wore it at work, to the beach, on weekend errands with Jill, and everywhere in-between. It was finally time to bring it out on a Saturday night. Today I’ll show you my take on how to wear flower crowns during a fun night out.
Flower Crown: Crowned, Dress: Sandro, Flats: Diane Von Furstenberg, Clutch: J. Crew, Cuff: LF
If you didn’t already know, or if I haven’t referenced it enough yet), I’m taking a trip to France at the end of this month. I’m going to take LOTS of style notes while I’m there to report back. In the mean time, I’m trying to wear tons of work my French designers. Sandro has been my most recent addiction. I’m completely obsessed with this velvety, stretchy, sleeved, cut-out back Sandro. It’s great for wearing to work (with a blazer, naturally), but transits easily to suit my evening plans. I love how the dress played off of the flower crown too. The dress is modern, while the crown is wild and natural.
In the French mindset, all things in moderation. This outfit practices simple beauty by not over doing it with excessive layering. The clean lines of the dress and tote work well with the complexity of the crown. Limiting the amount of accessories that I chose also helped me achieve a more classic look. Instead of following my childlike instincts to put all of my bracelets on at once, I chose only one statement wrap cuff to tie everything together.
Gold accents is a theme at the forefront. Metallic accents are scattered throughout on my shoes, cuff, clutch, and in the wiring of the crown. The warm metal unifies the crown to the outfit, and adds subtle depth.
This far, going out with the crown actually wins my highest rank. Wearing a flower crown out gets a 7 for wearability. There’s a little more room for risk, and you can counteract the “flower child” look by choosing sleek, chic items to create a well rounded look. I’ve even been brainstorming this looks for all of the bachelorette parties coming up. The bride could wear a medium sized, romantic white crown, while the bridal party wears smaller ones in the wedding colors. How else do you think a flower crown could be worn for a night out?
