Fashion Fix: Trend trial a turban!

11 March 2011

Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing loves dressing up. And apart from having a super cool name, she is also known for being seen on the red carpet working head-to-toe catwalk looks. This week in Paris she attended the Elie Saab autumn/winter show in one of the designer looks, as expected, but what really caught our eye  was her uber glam crystal encrusted turban. Now, for those of us who have an aversion to all things head-geary – turbans are officially cool. They're a retro alternative (and slightly less swamping for the pea heads among us) to this summer’s striped wide brimmed sun hats and Fan executes hers to perfection. Though, a few notes to self…
- Choose an opposite shade to your hair colour. If you are very fair avoid looking like  you have a bandage on your head by opting for brights. Though darker shades  will ultimately minimise the size of your head and deter attention.  
- Embellishment  is great for evening but make indeed stop traffic on a normal working day.  
- Take  note from Fan and team minimalist draping to your Turban.
