I spotted this Fashionista on her way to coffee with friends on a lazy Sunday at Lehigh. From afar I noticed her hat and thought it was just a big knit winter hat. However, as I got closer I was pleasantly surprised. This thick, knit turban was super cool and definitely unexpected at a time when things seem pretty uniform around campus.
Turbans have been all the rage over the past six months and with spring right around the corner, this trend is sure to be showing up everywhere. While this Fashionista’s turban is pretty bold, there are plenty of different ways to wear this style that are understated but just as cool.
Free People posted a “How-To” on their blog, so you can create your own turban with a chic colorful scarf. If you just want something easy to throw on and not worry about making the perfect knot, plenty of other styles can be found at places like Urban Outfitters.
Whether you are creating your own unique turban with a scarf or throwing on a knitted turban like this Fashionista, remember to keep things simple. The bohemian-hippie look is one that almost everyone likes, but not everyone can master. Downplay the rest of your outfit to make your turban standout. Whether you are going to class or getting lunch with friends you will look chic and put together in an effortless way. So Lehigh University Fashionistas, my style advice is to get a turban and wear it your way to stay cutting edge and trendy.
