Would You Wear… a Flower Headband?


Flower Headband

For this week’s Would You Wear?, let’s discuss an accessory trend that’s very spring-appropriate: the flower headband.

As seen on Gossip Girl, celebrities like Zooey Deschanel, and numerous Spring 2009 RTW runways, headbands with floral embellishment are EVERYWHERE right now! Forever 21 alone has 10 different types of flower headbands for sale right now so you know it’s gotta be a trend.

Since these headbands are so popular, I thought I’d get your take on them. Personally, I just bought one of these today so I’m a little biased – I think this look is adorable! But it’s not about what I think. I want to know the reader consensus on this one. So let’s get to it… would you wear a flower headband?

Leave a comment with your thoughts. Would you wear this look or not? If so, how would you wear it? Discuss, debate, question, consider, bicker, dispute, whatever. Just tell us all what you think!

    I think they are really cute, but I can’t figure out an outfit to wear with one.

    I would only wear one to a prom or wedding. Otherwise, they are too cutesy.

    I would, and I have :) I adore headbands. I bought a pink and black flower headband back in December. It looks great with curly/wavy hair.

    I love this look! With the right outfit this totally works, especially the way Leighton Meester is wearing her’s with a sort of matchy match blouse (which I don’t usually condone) but she has it right. This could very well be the new IT accessory for summer! I will try and find some immediately for my store, yay!

    Eh, I’m not a big fan of head-embellishment. A good hairdo is enough. Anything else is overkill.

    I love the flower headbands. Zooey Deschanel pulls them off great. I LOVE her. Though you can find them anywhere, I don’t think you should spend a lot of money on them. They are really easy to DIY. Just take a basic headband and fabric or even a fake flower and glue it on! It’ll look more original if you design it yourself. : )

    I don’t do well with accessories, so I wouldn’t wear it… in fact, I don’t wear anything in my hair. I do, however, think certain people can pull it off very well.

    I LOVE this trend! I especially love the one Leighton Meester is wearing! As long as the flower isn’t too big and overbearing, this trend is awesome!

    April 28th, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    I’d like one like the black one on the first picture. I agree with other comments here, as long as the flower is not too big then I’d totally wear it n_n.

    I couldn’t pull this off, but I think it can definitely be cute.

    YES! I love those things! They are so cute and adorable. I’m thinking about making a few of my own with some bows and cheap headbands from walmart. I love this trend!!

    I love it, so of course I’ll be wearing it on spring :) Although, I’m on fall/winter season right now, I’ll def. be wearing this when it’s time. I just adore how it looks! So romantic and cute :) Ideal for spring time!

    Hehe, I bought a flower headband last summer at Forever 21. I felt it was very Blair Waldorf at the time.

    For once, I’m ahead of the fashion trend! \o/

    flower headbands seem like overkill
    but i ABSOLUTELY ADORE headbands with side bows. there so cute and give the right amount of volume to your hair. :]

    I love headbands, and i’d definitely wear a flower headband, but not one that’s overpowering. One that’s too large may be a bit much for just the average girl. However, flower headbands are a great way to bring in spring and summer!

    When i was younger i use to wear those thick headbands everyday in elementry. I wore BIG HUGE clip bows in my hair and always took them off as soon as i stepped out of my moms mini van at school. NOW, those are the trend and I absolutely adore them. I have a bowl full of huge bows, headbands with flowers and feathers, and tons of colorful head pieces that go with any outfit IF you wear it right (which some people just can’t pull off!). So basically, . . . YES i would wear these trendy tid-bits and i definitely dont take them off when i get to school anymore :]

    I’d wear it. I live in hawaii and we wear flowers in our hair all the time, so this trend isnt much of a stretch.

    I sure would wear one, and I’m way past College – they’re so cute!

    i would totally wear a flower headband. I think that add something unique to an outfit. I love the gathered chiffon rose headband from forever 21 it is so cute and it has a classy look.

    April 29th, 2009 at 9:46 am

    they are so cute. I would wear one, but it depends on the fabric that it is made out of. But, the ones from Forever are adorable. It makes your outfit pop & they are really cute for this season. Its a must for any girls spring/summer wardrobe.

    I think flower headbands are really cute!!! but…at the moment i’m more into bow headbands, they match my personality more.

    April 29th, 2009 at 11:27 am

    I really like this trend. I think they’ll look great this summer.

    I absolutely love the fact that such girly pieces are coming back in, from flow-y, colourful dresses, right up to the flowers and bows. I would absolutely wear this trend! In a heartbeat!

    I like them, but I haven’t seen anyone on my campus wearing them. I might wear one around this summer.

    Im afriad I won’t be able to pull it off.

    Two of my friends were wearing these in class the other day. One of them had her hair down and curly and hers had a smaller flower on it, and the other one also has curly hair but she was wearing it in a pony tail and her flower was a little bit bigger. Both looks worked really well. I definitely think you have to have the right outfit though, and not too big of a flower, then it looks kind of tacky.

    April 29th, 2009 at 6:38 pm

    Personally, I wouldn’t wear one. They’re cute but honestly not really appealing to me. I like flowers and all, but not in headband form :/

    The strange thing is, I’d still wear flowers in my hair, in the form of a ponytail holder.

  36. 36
    April 29th, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    I wouldn’t do the headband, simply because they look weird on me. But I wear a clip-on flower just about every day! It really is perfect for spring, and I love the pin up look it gives me :D

  37. 37
    April 29th, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    Oh totally! If done right, they can be completely fabulous. But some are just awkward and make people look like they’re a planter.

    I don’t wear headbands very often because they usually hurt my head after a while. I do have a hair band with a flower attached that I wear sometimes. I usually wear my hair the same way day after day so it’s a cute change when I do actually wear it. With a flower on a hair band or a bobby pin, you have more freedom about what you want to do with it.

    I look terrible in ALL kinds of headbands, so no, I wouldn’t wear it. I wished I looked better in them, though-I think that the flower headbands are adorable.

    I think they are completely a must have because they are adorable and you can add it to any outfit, to dress it up or just wear it casually. Either way it spices up your look & adds something extra that everyone is bound to compliment. Also it is helpful to help you make that transition from winter to spring and summer, and they help you introduce color back into your wardrobe. Also they are very spring and summer of course…

    I think they are great.
    I personally wouldn’t wear one because I think I couldn’t pull it off.
    For me, it’s something to be worn to a business casual event or even semi formal. I think it’s too nice for everyday and to informal for a formal affair.

    They’re really cute and whimsical. I have a few flower headbands and flower hair pins and I love them. Whenever I wear them I feel like a hippie child in the 60’s :)

    i own a few of the ones with smaller flowers. i think they’re cute. and i wear them, too.

    but i can never figure out how to wear the ones with the humongous flowers.

    Wearing a flower headband or clip is so cute and a way to spice up nay outfit! smaller ones are eay t wear with multiple hair style, but big ones are harder.

    Wearing a big flower really only looks cute when you’re hair is in an up-do. having your hair piled on you head with a flower on the side of the pile is a cute way, also putting your hair in a low chignon (loose bun) thats off to the side, then you can place your large flower in the front on the chignon, so the flower is placed at your neck to the side. That didn’t really explain well. go to this link to se example:

    The example is kind of formal, but you get the idea. One thing to remember when wearing a larger flower though, don’t wear any jewelry. No earrings, no necklaces, maybe one bracelet (if you must)! The flower should be your only accessory!

    Flowers play a symbolic part in our daily lives as they have their own significance. The presence of flowers is seen at all events which are related to us like marriages, birthdays and even religious ceremonies. In certain countries, the presence of flowers is considered as very auspicious and is believed that the gods would come down on the earth smelling its fragrance and bless the occasion. Flowers also played a vital role in almost every person’s life and it is a known that the secret to a woman’s heart is through flowers as they definitely fall for the beauty and fragrance of flowers.
