Turbans are one of those accessories that have been perennially popular throughout the 20th and 21st century; So when starting my fashion line, I decided to include a couple of these timeless headpieces.

Because of the timeless of an accessory like a turban, they can be worn with modern or vintage style clothing.

For my outfit, I decided to pair my velvet and rhinestone spider turban with a black crepe dress from the 1940s, a pair of black shoes from Remix Los Angleles, a pair of vintage leather gloves from the 1950s.

Paired with a dress from the 1930s or 1940s, a turban can look very glamorous. Many film stars of those days made turbans part of their day to day wear. Turbans can also be paired with real or inspired 1920s pieces as a slightly exotic alternative to the flapper cloche.

Another great era for turbans was the early 1970s. Fashion designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Biba frequently featured turbans as parts of their collections. The popularity of the turban in the 1970s was part of the revival of the revival of 1930s fashions that were going on at the time.
