Ginger's Style Guide: Turbans

Love them or hate them turbans are back! A bold piece for a confident gal, these 1940's style creations are a great alternative to the winter standard beanies. I suggest we all take a moment and work out just how to wear these tricky little things.

My tip for trying the turban: keep it casual and fun. Wear it like a beanie on the back of your head with hair falling free. Fringes and bangs help a great deal to integrate and soften the look.

I am not a fan of a turan wrapped tightly round the head with your hair tucked under. It's so harsh, all emphasis is on the face which needs to be flawless. Even Jessica Stam looks strange in this get-up, and if something can make that girl look less than perfect then thats something Im going to stay waaaay away from.

Yesss! I'm so glad because turbans are amazing. I have a vintage turquoise silk one, a black one, a velvet turban headband and a black turban headband. So much fun to wear!

Wow! I've totally been thinking & considering turbans lately. I think they're a great alternative to the beanies that everyone is wearing at the moment. I agree that with hair falling out is the best way to wear them.
