How to wear a turban

I have always admired turbans but wasn’t sure if I could wear one. Now I have two and I wonder how I ever got along with them!
Turbans are now a permanent fixture in my hat wardrobe and a must for bad hair days.
Turbans are like beanies for girls. Don’t get me wrong – I own two beanies and love them, but really have only worn them to football games. Turbans are more comfortable than beanies and infinitely more stylish. Case in point – I wore a turban to work today – Turbans 1 Beanies 0. Here’s how I wear my turbans.

Look number one – Winter turban

Turban from Sportsgirl $19.95

Look number two – evening turban

Turban from Sportsgirl $29.95 includes brooch

Look number three – “I vont to be alone darling!” turban

Turban from Sportgirl as above.
I had to try with all my hair up as it reminds me of glamourous actresses from the 30s and 40s. It’s untouchable, reserved glamour.
I love it.
You’re convinced and need to have one? Here’s my shopping guide:

15 GBP –

I love turbans but I have a blunt fringe so I find it hard to wear them, boooo.

You're brave! I don't know if I can pull this off!!

Good on you! I think the black one looks really stylish would be a fab fresh but classy look for the Easter Carnival.Looks way better than I thought it would! Hair down makes it more modern and wearable.

@Brismod haha that is such a man response to turbans. I have to say, that was my husband's response when he first saw it but he cam around and now he thinks they look fab too.

@onefinestar I like the V-front of the turban with blunt fringe, also could be great option if you want to put your fringe back.

@AKB It's easier to wear than you think!

@Julie I know, I thought it would look too costume-y but the balck one is so wearable. I wore it Friday & Sunday! It would totally work for the races, great idea!

@Michelle Lee thanks lovely xx

They look so good! But I never dared to try one myself… but I'm loving that one in the pic from NastyGal.=)
