Head turner

Shopping guide: How to match turbans with your personal style
Whether you enjoy a mash-up of the unexpected, gravitate towards the luxurious, or simply a classic lady at heart, here's how to pull off the head piece in your go-to style

If you love headgear, then you're definitely no stranger to panamas, baseball caps, beanies and headbands alike, but it's a rarity that even the most seasoned hat veteran looks to the turban to cap off their outfits.

Although the turban may seem intimidating at first sight, its potential (and the many ways to wear it) is limitless when paired true to one's style. Colour, texture, embellishments and finish all play a part in how it gels with an ensemble; wear it wisely and it'll elevate your style and outfit to the next level. 

So, regardless of your preference for the fine and fancy or the tried and tested, don a turban to bat a guaranteed sartorial home run. Scroll down to see how you can get your headwear game on point.
