The Tantalizing Turban

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I am a big fan of the turban. Ever since Prada Spring 2007 rocked the silk turban and made it a style sensation. The turban is the perfect accessory for bad hair days and a long relaxing afternoon at the beach. I don't have a favorite style of turban. I love them all (scars, head piece, headband, etc..) anything that is "turban-esque" is good in my book! I will definitely be wearing mine this spring and summer. I recently bought this Free People one in emerald. Here are all the images taking up space on my laptop!

I love these examples and I think everyone looks so beautiful. I don't think I would actually wear it to go to the shop but it would be perfect for the beach look.

I love every kind of hair accessories and I think a turban will be the next ;) Please take some pictures of you with the turban!

Taylor Sterling said...

Alixrose- I know what you mean, I think if done right you could wear it shopping. :)

bloomingvogue- I sure will once my camera comes!

I adore that pic of SPJ in her multi-colored turban. I love this and need to try it out too. Can't wait to see how you style your FP one!

girl by the whirlpool said...

ooh I love it! I actually wore my hair in a scarf the other day, but I wouldn't know the mechanics of twisting it into a turban like that

Jaime said...

Love this look! I remember Carrie w/ her turban...

Jesss said...

the olsen rocks it for me.
it's not the full turban so i feel that it is more wearable.

Rose Taylor said...

you know, i was not a huge fan of the turban, i had a feeling it was somehow politically incorrect...haha, but these pictures you found are fabulous!

i would definitly rock the more subtle ones, like the one seen on mary kate or the bright red one with florals. i think in this case, the subtle is beautiful. :)

Leah said...

I wish I can wear a turban and look as fabulous as those ladies. xoxo

Dylana said...

My mother wore a turban with her wedding dress instead of a veil, I use to put it on and play dress-up as a child all the time. :)

All these images are stunning!

Oh I love this piece! To be honest, I never thought it would be something I'd wear, but these photos have definitely changed my mind! Gorgeous! xoxo

Meggstatus said...

I wish that I knew how to create a turban from a scarf, but I can't figure it out! I just adore them, I might have to surrender my pride and buy one as is!

avalonne said...

I love turbans. I did the turban look! You can check out my post here. I love the Missoni editorials, Prada turbans are so chic and gorgeous.

I love love love me some turbans! I personally prefer the full-coverage ones but I really like all of them. There's just something exotic and glamorous about them. Fab post!

Oh, I love those turban-insirations, they're all so wonderful! I hope we get to see you rocking one soon:)

Emilie said...

A great accessory for bad hair days...

Jamie said...

I love the first one. It's more of a headband than a turban. The full turbans I just can't pull off!
