Hot Summer Trend Alert: Turbans!

July 6, 2012

Worn by women since ancient times and popularized by style icons of the ‘40s and ‘50s, the iconic turban makes a fierce comeback this summer. Inspired by Indian and African culture, turbans are now being embellished, dyed, twisted and contemporized for women. Androgynous and eclectic, FY is in love with the turban trend!

I never thought I’d be able to pull it off up until I had a chance to try some gorgeous turbans myself, at Dubai based designer store, Malaak.  Made of Indian raw silk and embellished with sequins and even animal print turbans had me in a tizzy! I knew I just HAD to get my hand on these…

Alternately, one could even try a DIY turban with a long scarf- just wrap it around the head once, starting from the base of your neck,  knot it once at the top of your head and then repeat the action once more. I’d like to wear mine on one of these hot sunny days with long dangling earrings and a strapless maxi dress for the boho chic effect.
