It’s not that I don’t think turbans can be a fun touch to top off an outfit, it just feels as if they’ve been completely over-played since the Sex and the City 2 movie came-out. Now, every time I see someone in a turban I find it to come off as too forced and trendy rather than an original touch. As an alternative I’m loving Ports 1961’s head bling. I was over at their showroom the other day (they’re letting me borrow an off-the-runway dress for an upcoming wedding!), and I was in total awe of all of their beaded garments and accessories (I changed in the sample closet…a girl’s dream!). Their Gear Wide Headband ($390) particularity stood out to me – it’s an elastic crepe headband beautifully embellished with a popping design that pairs wonderfully with a dressed down tee and and jeans look for day or a simple sheath for night. Plus its got that same turban-like, “foreign appeal” without feeling forced.
What do you think about this headband? Are you as over turbans as I am?
