Turbans, or sometimes the best hair is hidden


Take a memo from Beyonce.

Or Billie Holiday


Turbans are a delightfully dressy alternative to a hat


Start with your closet. Do you have an old, soft, cotton button-down? An extra large scarf? You are in business. If you have long hair, you may want to pin it in a twist on the back of your head.

Flip your head upside down, and place the widest part of your material against the nape of your neck. Wrap the sides/arms of the shirt (if you’re using a scarf, fold into a triangle, and wrap the long corners of the triangle) around the sides of your head, crossing them over each other at the top. Don’t worry if it’s messy or off-center; this adds to the texture and shape of your turban. Tuck the cuffs/points back in along the edges of your turban. Pin any extra flaps or edges of fabric as necessary.

Or, get professional with some fabric. These ladies have some thorough instructions, complete with hand-drawn sewing diagrams.

Take it from Patty, “Turbans are high style.”

    I have a turban I’ve been meaning to wear; just haven’t decided how to style the rest of the outfit.

    Go for the overload approach. Wear it with your busiest dress, paired with your floral cardigan and printed tights.
