Would you wear...a Turban like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kourtney Kardashian, Salma Hayek and Solange?



Goodbye fedoras. There's a new way to cover up a bad hair day inspired by traditional Indian ornamental headdress: turbans.

Regarded as a symbol of honor and respect in India (and called pagri), turbans hit my fashion radar this summer with Carrie's look on Sex and the City II.

Since then, the super-sophisticated look has permeated pop culture with style mavens like June Ambrose, Salma Hayek, Kourtney Kardashian and Solange Knowles wrapping their hair in gorgeous fabric.

And I'm loving the look!

Unlike a fedora for example, which primarily comes in solid colors, you can make a colorful, patterned turban the focal point of your outfit like Solange. 




And while bold glamazons like Solange and June Ambrose wrap their hair up in a turban, you can also rock a turban like a hat on top of your head and let your hair hang underneath like Salma Hayek and Kourtney Kardashian.
 









I'm not bold enough to wear it to a gala like June Ambrose...




But I will wear it with my hair peeking out like Salma Hayek or in the front like Solange this week since it's raining (and I just got my hair done!).





What about you? Would you wear the look?

I just did a post on this. I can't deal. It looks more "ready for bed" than chic and fabulous.

it works for some, love it on solange...but definitely doesn't fit into my style profile... and definitely shouldn't be a trend adopted by everyone.
