The frustrations of a shawl while dressed in a churidhar are some times too much to bear. The pinning on the shoulder or the haphazard winding around the neck does nothing to ease the turmoil. Besides, it’s a rather antiquated accompaniment, a clever way for a woman to maintain her modesty. So why not take what is meant to be demure and make it a statement? Why not turban it?
Take your shawls and make them into turbans is a cool boho way to update a churidhar. It makes a statement, but also removes the hassles of dealing with it. Try it at your next family party, Instagram it, and tag us @westxeast_ with the hashtag #TurbanChic.
