Every season, a hair accessory comes along that takes the beauty world by storm and reaches bona fide institutional status. If you spent any time at music festivals, or even just outdoors this year, chances are you either sported or saw this trendy item around a lot. Thanks to its easy DIY status and cultural ubiquity, generations for years to come will fondly look back at the summer of 2013 as the year of the flower crown.

We think Free People’s Mink Felt hat is a good example of a big, beautiful brim.
