Summer Trend: Turbans

Maybe the heat has gotten to me, but I am really into the turban trend this summer. I love how they are simultaneously practical (keep that humid hair under wraps), colorful and glamorous while almost veering into crazy aunt territory. The turban headband is a nice way to ease into the look (and build up your neck muscles) until you are ready to go for the whole thing.

If you'd like to make your own, Kelly has a good tutorial here. Or if you'd like to use a scarf, 100 Layer Cake has step-by-step instructions on how to tie a turban. If you're not so coordinated, Lulu Frost has a nice selection of pre-made turbans with awesome prints or you could choose from some of my favorites below. So tell me, would you wear one?
