How to Wear: Turban

A turban is definitely not a fashion accessory for everyone – it takes a lot of self confidence to rock such a bold statement piece. At first I thought it would be an almost impossible task gather enough high quality photos of gorgeous ladies wearing a turban, but my luck turned when I discovered Aphrodite on Chictopia. She is pretty much the queen of turbans and knows exactly how to style them!  


Aphrodite has her very own way of wearing turbans – her outfits complementing the turban are usually a combination of one piece with a bold pattern and another of one simple color. This way she ensures that the complexity of the outfit itself does not overpower the funky turban.

Another hit seem to be red turbans combined with red accents. Why this is, I cannot tell, but my hypothesis is that red lends the outfit an exotic, Oriental feel. I love the brooch on Aphrodite’s (middle) turban – it makes her turban worthy of a sultan.

Speaking of Oriental flair, turbans look exceptionally good when used as a complement of an already exotic looking outfit. Bold patterns, vivid colors and creative prints all come alive when combined with a turban.

But a turban can also easily be a part of a modern outfit. Kristina Gisors, a Parisian stylist, looks stunning in her Christopher Kane crocodile dress paired with a black turban. The key in incorporating turbans into trendy outfits seems to be using a simple black turban rather than a colorful one.
