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.

Salma Hyaek rocked a turban at the Stella McCartney show on monday.

Here is SJP wearing a turban in the most recent Sex and the City movie. She’s always ahead of the trends!

Solange at a recent party rocking a turban style head wrap.

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.

Please learn how to properly tie your head scarf/turban. Here are a few how to videos.

#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 for $80

Here is another that comes in a variety of colors that I found at

#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.

Kate Moss wore hers in dressy chic way.

Solange had the downtown cool vibe going on..

  1. No, I am NOT brave enough to wear this but you go, girl. I do love hats, though. I wear a cloche and sometimes a little beret-like hat in the winter.
