Tone up with this bloom-topped Buttercup Days pick ($16/pair, Made You Look, 1338 Queen West, 416-463-2136).
Any old brooch, like Extasia’s glass cameo ($175, Trove, 793 Bathurst, 416-516-1258), can be converted into a barrette in a pinch by clipping it on with a bobby pin.
Add a little sparkle with Monikque’s hand-beaded floral pin ($35, Made You Look).
That whole surrealism trend never caught on this season (sorry, Mr. Jacobs), but you can still look oddly chic mounting Papersnake’s wide-mouthed fishy ($24, Frock, 97 Roncesvalles, 416-516-1333) on your head.
Go to the drugstore aisle to stock up on a headful of Goody plastic barrettes ($6.49, Shoppers Drug Mart, 388 King West, 416-597-6550, and others).
