The Style Trend You Should Try This Week: Crowns (Because You’re Worth It)

We live in a day and age where it’s very easy to be a queen, perhaps because the definition of “queen” has broadened. There has been the long-standing Beyonce queen, which requires not a whole lot more than a shapely bottom and an ability to sing while shaking one finger back and forth as if to say, “no no no, monsieur.” So too have there been the fierce queens — unabashedly gay, candid and justifiably proud. Now, however, it seems that just about anyone can be a queen — despite their sexual preference or finger dexterity — with the mere click of the crown emoji. With all of these quasi-queens running amok, it’s time we tighten the reins, narrow the definition, make queens special again. And what better place to start than with regal garb?
Here’s a thought: wear a crown, and I don’t just mean on your birthday or quinceañera. Wear a crown because you’re worth it. TC mark
