Wrap it Up!

I should be doing more outfit posts, but I am less than thrilled with my bangs right now (when will I ever learn to not trim them myself?!?!) and have been ducking out of photographs like I am some sort of international spy... but an international spy would have way better hair...
Que lastima
!

Anyway, a hat would be my natural solution to my quandary, but what about the indoors? Wearing a fedora while eating Cheerios could be remarkably chic to some, but it can get silly pretty quickly... which leads me to the point of this post: turban headbands! Thank goodness they are "in" right now because they might just be the thing to motivate me to rejoin society! (dramatics are necessary when it comes to self-inflicted hair issues, right?) I have found a few fun options across the web and might actually purchase one. It's funny because I didn't think I was brave enough to sport one, but if I am not brave enough to bare my bangs, then a turban jumps categories from "risk" to "necessity"... Hmm.

This ASOS Wide Headband Scarf is a bit theatrical, but I like the color.


The Wooden Ships Isadora Spring Turban from Urban Outfitters is cute and very wearable.


A full turban, like this jersey one from Urban Outfitters, would be a statement, but the fabric and color retain the casual vibe.


A fun, floral option from the queen of prints, Diane von Furstenberg.

Etsy always come through with fun options, like this leopard adorableness from LeilanniLand.


The big knot must have subconsciously stuck with me from this shot of Katherine Power's chicly-styled closet on The Coveteur:

I even found a tutorial on how to make your own headband here.

What do you think about the turban headband? Fashion misstep or fun accessory? And who else has cut their bangs in a moment of hair inspiration? Be honest ;)

  6. I've yet to try the turban trend but I really dig it! I think there is a way that you can tie a silk scarf to make it look like a turban so i'll probably do that since i'm way too much of a cheapskate to actually go out and buy a headband ;)

  7. definately a fun accessory, i've done it a couple of times. you can even find videos on youtube on how to tie an ordinary scarf into a stylish turban. very versitile and it does hide the part of our hair that we don't want to show. lol
