Wrap It Up!
WRAP IT UP!
This editorial discusses various head wraps, ones that unite all cultures, that appeared in the runway for Spring/Summer 2018. Head wraps as a fashion trend appeared in the 1970s, such as the various turbans of model/actress, Angelica Houston. The use of turbans can be traced back to ancient African, Middle Eastern, Hasidic Jewish women, and Asian cultures.
Let’s flashback to Jerry Hall’s Vogue cover in the 1970’s.
Besides turbans, other head wrap styles are so hot right now! You can refer to a classic style like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's, or give it a punk rock twist to an urban outfit, and also edgy and ethnic style like with Solange seen here below. Head wraps add texture and some color to your outfit.

Various forms of head gear (e.g., premium scarves, hijabs, turbans, tichels and dupattas) signal a universal fashion movement that Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2017 show revived. This year Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2018 collection showcased an array of head wraps and turban styled scarfs paired with his pieces.
This past season, every fashion event I attended, had a stylist or a fashion designer who completed his or her look with a head wrap. Going back to the head wrap is a return to the allure, mystery and sexiness of a foreign culture and a forgotten time. It can also be reminiscing of old hollywood glamour as seen with Audrey Hepbun. A head wrap demands confidence, and one truly believes in their look. Check out our “Wrap It Up” editorial in Jejune.
