Turbans have been a fashion statement for quite some time now, but we just spotted Kourtney Kardashian wearing a bright blue one with her printed Diane von Furstenberg dress in Miami, so we had to put it out there: would you wear a turban? Eva Mendes also recently wore a black satin turban with her lace Dolce & Gabbana dress, Karolína Kurková matched her gold sequin turban with her Rachel Zoe gown at the 2012 Met Gala, and Margherita Missoni sported a white turban with a beaded orange detail with her plunging printed Missoni gown. Would you wear — or have you worn — a turban like these daring celebs? Cast your vote, then leave a comment below. If your answer is yes, shop our favorite turbans below.
The turban has been around a loooong time, had a resurgence in the late '60s and early '70s when Elizabeth Taylor and Marisa Berenson showed how cool they could be, and is once again making a comeback. SJP looked glam in SATC2, Moschino showed them on the runway, Arlenis Sosa sizzled in a swimsuit/turban combo, and we spotted this navy and brown spotted turban from Anthropologie ($178), with which we promptly fell in love. We think it would look ultra chic with a fitted sheath dress, black shades, and a red lip. What's your opinion?
While the turban could be set to make a big comeback, it appears that Etsy-er CallaAdriano is hoping it makes its resurgence in studded form. Available in her store are these embellished creations ($35), featuring turbans in various shades (like black, violet ombré, and dark blue), all dressed up with metallic spikes. Each one is handmade, and she'll even customize a design for you according to your preferences. Check out what she has to offer, and then tell us: would you wear these bedazzled, satiny hair accessories?
This look from Fab reader Miss Ife instantly brought a smile to my face; it's cool, funky, and totally fashion-forward. She wore a pair of dark denim high-waisted jeans, a gray top and white blazer. Then, she loaded up on the accessories — a bright yellow clutch, multicolored beaded necklace, and a pair of thin hoop earrings. The pièce de résistance of her look was a hot pink, artfully wrapped turban — the perfect Summer accessory for a chic, avant-garde look, or just a bad hair day. Love this look!
Congrats Miss Ife!

It was quite the year for the accessory-obsessed: there were definitely loads of baubles, bags, and footwear to drool over! Any fashionista worth her weight in gold tried at least one of these cool crazes, if not all of them. In 2010, we got schooled by chic backpacks, wrapped up in stylish turbans, and swallowed alive by giant knuckle rings. Our feet were festooned with tough motorcycle boots, and the resurgence of clogs had us jumping for joy. So tell us, what was your fave accessories trend this year?
We love mixing together classic Winter essentials — like a cable-knit sweater — with unexpected pairings for a new twist on cold-weather dressing. Take cue from this street style snap and contrast our cozy cream pick from American Eagle with a flirty floral skirt from Vanessa Bruno Athé, a Lot78 leather jacket, polka dots tights, and clay-colored boots from Coach for a refreshingly sweet vibe.

If you haven't yet been sucked in by the turband — turban + headband ($26-$32) — what are you waiting for? Gold Saturn's creations are the perfect Summer accessory, a good way to ease into the turban trend a la Kate Moss without going full-blown. Tie-dye, denim, leopard, hearts, stripes, Missoni-inspired knits — your biggest dilemma will be, which one to choose?
I've long wanted to dabble with the turban trend, but have been hesitant for fear I'll look silly. Thanks to Gold Saturn, now I can dabble with confidence. They've created the part turban, part headband Turband — thick enough to resemble a real turban but thin enough to not envelope your entire head. The best part is that there's a style for everyone: purple and gray tie-dye, black and red hearts, metallic leopard, and solid orange and green. And they're only $26 each. They would make a cute birthday gift for a fashion-forward girlfriend. Dabble away.
