Turbans were all over the runway at Prada's S/S 2007 show and have sparked editorials in almost every major fashion magazine featuring the interesting headpiece. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been the latest celebrities seen working the new trend. The trend stems back from the twenties and made another recurrence in the fifties during World War II when women wore them while working in the factories. Several stores have been selling the full turban and headband versions and few have been brave enough to sport them in the real world. I'm dying to get one because they're just so unique and for $6.00 the forever 21 turban/headband is an easy way to try out the trend without spending thousands on the infamous prada turban.

xoxo, lauren
