If you're wanting to be on trend for the season, get a turban.
The popular headpiece, which many argue never went out of style, re-emerged on the spring runways and is starting to appear on daring fashionista's heads.
So why is the is the turban all of a sudden back in fashion?
Sartorial historian Caroline Rennolds Milbank explains:
"From way back, turbans signified a woman who was very educated and worldly. If you look back at the portrayal of women in films like 1,001 Nights, Lawrence of Arabia or even the television show I Dream of Jeannie, the West depicted those women very sexually with sheer fabrics and an exposed midriff. Going back to the turban is a return to the allure and sexiness of a foreign culture."
Inneresting thoughts, but we're kinda torn on the latest cranial trend after seeing Salma Hayek's unsuccessful attempt.
