Rocking Out The Hijab Turban Style? You Dare?

As of until now, I've been a mere observer of the turban-style, unsure of what to do about it. I think it's pretty, but you have to wear it just right, and the tolerance range of mistakes is very thin. So there is a huge chance it'll end up looking comical and you'll look like you are heading to a dress-up party.

Couple of posts ago, Karla from Karla's Closet rocked the turban and I was like, this could actually look elegant. Maybe that's not based on facts because let's face it, the girl's gorgeous and everything she touches turn into style gold. But ever since, I've been wanting to experiment with the style, without looking OTT.

So yesterday, Tash and I went for a stroll in the city (more like Primark) and she bought a snood to experiment with the style. Hah ada geng pulak. Terus lah malam tu jugak try lilit turban ni. Thanks to si Yuna comel for the very helpful tutorial. It took us countless replays to understand what she was doing, it's pretty tricky! Tapi once you get the hang of it it's pretty simple.

My concerns of it are 1) if it would be uncomfortably hot wearing a turtle-neck/extra shawl to lilit around the neck/inner scarf that would cover the neck area on a typical summer day, 2) if the form would actually stay put on your head. Well, I guess, the only way to find out is to put it to test.
I was almost sure that Encik won't approve the style although that has never stopped me from wearing what I feel like wearing before. Turns out, this one he thinks is cool! You rock lah, Encik.

Tak dak gambar dengan Tasha pulak. Terlupa tangkap semalam. Print turban Tasha cantik. So saya berpoyo-poyo seorang diri di sini dulu.
