ttF Fashion Diary: Turban Tied

ttF Fashion Staple: Colorblock Sandals
I’m not huge on turbans. Ever since I was younger I’ve been extremely self conscious about my forehead and I feel like the accessory only highlights my insecurity. But as part of blogger swap I did with What I Wore, I received this vibrant scarf that screamed, “Wear me on your head like Jessica did!” So I listened… and ended up loving it!

The vibrant color on top balanced out the bold colorblocking at my feet, and I did a preppy mix of navy, orange and white in between. I think the trick was leaving my bangs. Had I pulled back all my hair under the turban it would have been too much forehead for me.

Scarf worn as turban swapped with Jessica, Forever 21 sweater, Express shirt, Lust Jeans c/o Divine Rights of Denim, Pour la Victoire sandals, Manifestation Braceletc/o Energy Muse, Foley + Corinna bag, Nine West fringe bag used as laptop case

Get the look…

    I love wearing scarves that way! My only issue is that it slips off after a while. I too have a big forehead by the way, but I cover it with the front part of the scarf-turban!

      Try bobby pinning them. It helps to keep them in place.

    I love this! I’ve been practicing my turbans lately…my issue is a tend to look like a Romanian refugee circa 1880 when I add anything scarf like to my head…but this look works much better than other headscarves….!
