Turbans: The Trend That Won't Go Away

Salma HayekTurbans have been making a comeback among the fashion elite for more than a year now.

But just when I think that designers will accept that turbans are simply not going to catch on --


Check out Salma Hayek, for example, turbaned out at Stella McCartney's Spring/Summer 2011 runway show.

Even more recently, former Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger was caught out and about in a rather fugly turban.

Kate Moss is another offender, but here's the real tip-off that the turban trend might at last be going mainstream:

You can now choose from a selection of turbans at Urban Outfitters.

That means it's only a matter of time before you start seeing your town's 20-somethings out in them.


Would you wear a turban out in public?



Urban Outfitters

If your answer is yes, then maybe you'll opt for this Full Burnout Turban (Urban Outfitters, $28), which is very reasonably priced.


RevolveOr you might opt for this head-baring Eugenia Kim turban (Revolve Clothing, $88)


TurbanOf course, Etsy has a ton to choose from, including this blue velvet turban (Etsy, $28).

There are, of course, legitimate reasons for wearing a turban and there was a time when the most glamorous stars of the silver screen regularly wore turbans as luxurious accessories ...

But what do you think of the look as a straight-up trend? Is this look really going to catch on? Will we ALL be wearing turbans by next fall?
