Trend Report: The turban
Although fashion turbans have been around for a while, they are on the rise again. Fashion turbans/head wraps have been a popular style in the African and African American community for a long time. No longer is the turban or head wrap for sistas with afros. All types of women are embracing (or re-embracing) the trend.
I personally LOVE this look. I think its so chic and different. It will definitley make you stand out from the crowd.
Here are some tips for rocking a turban this fall.
#1 Tie it right.

#2 Buy it pre-wrapped
If you are too lazy to tie the turban yourself, buy one that is pre-wrapped and fits like a hat.
Here is one I found on urban outfitters.com for $80
Here is another that comes in a variety of colors that I found at villagehatshop.com
#3 Wear the right outfit
Turbans can be super chic or downtown cool. Wear an outfit that fits the turban you are wearing. Most of us would probably wear a turban casually so be sure to dress the part. No sweats.
Solange had the downtown cool vibe going on..
