The braid brigade: Go for single or dual messy braid and attach dainty jasmine flowers to it. You can also attach small sunflowers to the dual braid to make it stand out.

Rose or lilly, pick the flower you like and wear it as a ring.

Statement ring: This is the most effortless way to some quick floral glam to your look. Take any old ring and attach an oversized flower to it.
