Faux Leather Turban Goodness

by Kate Franco on April 16, 2013 · 10 comments

how to rock a fashion turban with curly hairweekend wear - boyfriend shorts with tee and faux leather fashion turbanweekend wear - boyfriend shorts with tee and faux leather fashion turbanfaux leather fashion turban from mademoiselle mermaid on EtsyWhen my roommate saw this turban for the first time her immediate reaction was, “I love you, but don’t wear that.” And, like a teenager, it kind of made me want to wear it that much more. Even some of the fashionable ladies at work were a tad skeptical. Much debate ensued. Are turbans out? Leather? Intense. What can I say — I’m a risk-taker. Whether you want to call it a “fashion turban” a “headscarf” or a combination of the two {“turban headband” anyone?} I’m into it.

So, armed with such a bold accessory and lots of leather, I kept everything else minimal: jewelry, shoes, makeup {like I know how to do anything besides minimal makeup. c’mon.} And, proving once again that it’s all about attitude, every skeptic came around. My roommate even confirmed it was crazy, but cute.

Head to Toe: Mademoiselle Mermaid faux leather fashion turban, Urban Outfitters jacket, Wildfox tee, boyfriend shorts via Poshmark, Alexander Wang Rocco via Poshmark, YSL Charlotte booties via Poshmark.

I’m so glad you decided to wear this! I freaking love it and you make me wish I hadn’t sold me (less cool) turban.

Okay now…..this combination of leather turbon and leather sleeves on an Army jacket is SICK! Don’t be mad if you run into a mini-you (Black version) out on the streets. I’m just warning you NOW! I’m about to ‘hook’ the whole look up!
