Everyone has their own way of translating a look.
So why should the turban be an exception? These crafty ones have reinvented the look and made it their own, and "thats whats so great about fahhhsion, man."
1. Playing it safe can still be cool.
Who says the turban has to be all about satin and glam?
Okay, Miuccia did, but shh!
On a result trip to london, I spied several fashion forward ladies who opted for the fifties housewife headgear look.
Bright and patterned Silk Scarves and thick layered ribbons are the way to go for the test run, or for those who aren't keen on translating trends straight from the runway.
The Olsens are these days rather notorious for becoming martyrs of their latest fashion addiction, be it Balenciaga boots, Rayban Wayfarers or that Turban headband.
Nonetheless, I doff my
hat ahem, Turban to them for not feel the need to only wear it once, "just because".
Two very different interpretations, but they both seem very at ease with their looks.
Love the contrast of the chilled out wellie boot vibe with the metallics at the french discotheque look.
4. Invent, Reuse, Restyle
As the mastermind of the reinvention of the Turban, Muiccia Prada pretty much holds the right to indulge in as many seasons of turban fun without being scolded for "jumping on the bandwagon".
And thats just what shes done. I love this look from the Prada Autumn/Winter 07 collection. The materials are harsh and wintery, but paired with the Brigiette Bardot style hair and make up, femininity still wins!
5. DIY Chic
Ahh, yes! Susie Bubble!
