Turban Street Style
This entry should be renamed : How to Wear a Turban… and not look like you’re about to read someone’s fortune. I feel like turbans have been severely misjudged. Their rep in the past was largely related to being a modesty garment for women of certain religions, but they have quickly gained popularity in other parts of the world. They not only have great appeal in the fashion world but can also do absolute wonders for a bad hair day. Wearing one puts more focus on your facial structure and emphasizes your eyes. If you’re brave enough and are sure you won’t be venturing into the crystal ball territory, have at it! Here are a few of my favorite Turban Looks.
Casual and Cool in a white crew neck shirt, knitted Missoni maxi skirt and a clutch worn with a cool printed turban and perfect boho waves.
Sheer and soft neutral layers, a beat up sling, stacked cuffs, bangles and rings. Turban in a bright orange color worn as a headband.
Denim and a classic trench, plaid wool scarf, a beige turban and a statement necklace.
Animal print, layers and textures for cold weather, thin accessories, winged linger and red lips with a coordinating soft turban.
Sequined top, yellow skirt, wicker bag and turban balanced with neutral pointed sling backs and classic wayfarers for a slightly more formal event.
Denim on denim. Layers, chains and a collar turned up.
All white and tailored with crocodile skin accessories. Perfection.
And finally, my favorite turban wearing icons.
Audrey Hepburn in a classic black dress and pearls in a fluffy monochromatic turban with a bow.
Princess Grace of Monaco at the beach in Monte Carlo wearing a pink turban matching the print of her Pucci coverup with gold accessories and dark sunglasses.
If it's good enough for Grace Kelly, it's good enough for me!
