At face-value, without any context, these floral cat ears really aren't that offensive. Who doesn't like flowers? Or animals? What harm did headbands ever do to anyone? It all seems innocent enough. Prim, sweet, feminine, whatever. But (for us anyway) there's something truly sinister that lies within this headband's ingredients. This is the ill-advised headgear lovechild of 2012's two landmark fashion phenomenons: flower crowns and cat ears. And THAT, the reckless combination of these two things into a separate genre of accessory, makes this floral ears headband the evil Frankenstein's monster of played out mega-trends. Also, our collective worst nightmare.

Ke$ha is really ready for spring, y'all! Last night in Las Vegas, the singer stepped out in an ensemble ENTIRELY covered in flower petals, and it's making us (and her) wish winter was over ASAP. She sported a black lace bustier and underwear covered in rhinestone-accented red and pink flower petals, which she paired with an INSANE black sequin fringe jacket. She also added purple and red rose detailing around the cuffs to take her '60s flower child fandom to the next level, which we love. To top off the look, she wore a summery floral crown with platinum blonde waves, glittery smoky eyes and bold red lips.

Well well well, stylish people of the world. If you're not into them yet, you better start cozying up to flower crowns as a bonafide accessory before you get left in the dust. It looks as though the floral accessories trend seemingly pioneered by Lana Del Rey, the adopted staple of Coachella and Taylor Swift tea parties alike is not only growing in prevalence, it's picking up steam. Snowballing even! The blossoming headbands have been popular with the ladies for at least a few months now, but it's these latest Fashion Week offerings from Marcel Ostertag and Vivienne Westwood in Germany and Milan respectively that are making a case for dudes to sport them, too.
