Trend Evolution – Turbans and Headbands

Headbands used to be worn around the head going under the hair, but somewhere in the not-so-distant past all that changed. All of a sudden stars have been seen with them over the top of their hair. Is Miuccia to blame for this trend?

One might be drawn to conclude that it all started with the Prada turban – as seen above. We never really expected the turban to make it to the everyday fashionista’s wardrobe, but the headband version of the turban was indeed picked up by the likes of Ashley Olsen. Since then, Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth have also been out-and-about in headbands worn in a similar fashion to the Prada turban-headband, only minus the exotic details.

I personally find this difficult – mostly because if the headband slips upwards you end up with a big ugly bubble of hair puffing over the top of it. Can you make this work? What do you think of the trend?

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
