Isn't wearing Turbans, if you don't associate with the cultures that wear them symbolically, cultural appropriation if you wear them for fashion purposes? I've seen a few beauty guru's on YouTube wear them with outfits and while I was tempted to try it, I decided against it because I didn't want to offend anyone.
Yeah I would shy away from turbans/various head wraps that have religious/cultural significance. I know a lot of people use them for a lot of different reasons, but there’s definitely a difference between wearing a turban, a different type of religious head wrap, wrapping your hair overnight, and tying it back with a cloth or something. - Zoe
Sidenote - now’s definitely a time for caution considering all those Lady Gaga-inspired “burqa swag” pictures cropping up….. Don’t want anyone to think I’m encouraging tossing a towel on your head :)
