Fashion trend: Turban

Lady with Tuban

I think I am the only one I know that doesn’t yet have a turban. Is it because I prefer to flaunt my hair or just because I don’t even know where to get one?

Sometime last year (I can’t remember precisely when), I started noticing the turban trend everywhere.

A lot of people are into the turban because it is versatile, you could wear it when you need to cover your hair (such as to a religious organization) or just wear it to add a little flair to your outfit. I love the turban especially since I realised you can wear it with any outfit and to any event if styled properly and with the right accessories.

I also love the fact that it could come plain or accessorized and that it is ready to wear. Its makers embellish turbans in either of these five ways: they can be embellished with stones, with beads, with embroidery, with brooches or with white pearls.

My favourite though is the turban embellished with brooches, it is just beautiful.  

There are many videos on YouTube showing how to tie a turban properly; you should check them out for more inspiration.

Since the turban is available in many colours and designs, you might consider styling your turban these 3 ways or really in any way that suits you.

  • turban with simple coloured outfit
  • Plain turban with outfit
  • Monochrome – I love the monochrome look, so this is my best way to style a turban

I think I have said enough to convince you to go get yours if you haven’t already.

As for me, I am going out now to scout for turbans; I must get one today!!
