Steeped in tradition and meaning, the flower crown is a timeless and popular accessory, remaining fresh and in bloom from ancient Greece to Beyonce. As seen on the newsstand, Flower Crowns are back in Vogue. Yet to take the trend on for yourself, it may be better to look to Frieda Kahlo than Queen Bey. While the later manages an impressive amount of flowers on her head, the former’s pretty weaves of plaits, ribbons and flowers are simple yet bohemian, practical and beautiful. Pick some flowers from your garden and click notes to give Frieda’s iconic flower crown a go. Click for StyleNotes →

The natural rhythm of the seasons dictates the length of our days, the availability of produce, and major shifts in fashion trends. Changing up your hair and makeup to fit the current climate feels natural, but it does make fashion a bit predictable. Every spring the color palette gets lighter, the fabrics softer. Every fall hues richen, fabrics thicken. Some of these changes are inevitable—wearing a sundress in October isn’t going to be practical—but keeping hair and makeup light and flirty in the winter gives a fresh, youthful counterbalance to somber colors and luxe fabrics. Add some pastel flowers or a touch of carnation pink nail polish and you’ll give your otherwise seasonal style a delightful twist. Learn more about this trend in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

The Resort Runways are great for hair. Spring and Fall Fashion shows prefer to keep hair off the face, lest it take real estate from the clothes, but Resort has a carefree vibe, one that allows designers to be more liberal, styling tresses like how the trendy girls want to wear them. Atelier Versace captures the mood with these ethereal flower crowns. Paired with loose rock and roll waves, it’s an otherworldly look for vacations and weekends away. Learn how to make it in the notes.

Festival season continues this weekend with Electric Daisy Carnival in New York, and no festival, especially one with a flower in the name would be complete without a flower crown to top off your outfit.

For hundreds of years in folklore and history, beautiful maidens donned garlands of freshly picked florals on their heads in celebration of the spring equinox, where they danced to music in open fields to ensure a year of prosperity and fertility. Today, the spring ceremonies are sponsored by Sephora, but the tradition of wearing floral wreathes––now paired with the latest fashion from H&M––lives on. And though every season, I think florals are nothing new, they continue to be revived on the runway and on the festival scene as glorious headpieces in celebration of the new and blooming season.
