Get Inspired: Mila Schon’s Runway Look Pairs Turbans and Redish Orange Lips

The Mad Hatter

Turbans and brightly hued lips with a hint of orange made this simple look visually effective. Grab a turban or head to your nearest vintage shop for a roaring 20s hat.  You can pull headgear from any decade from the 20s to even the 60s for an elegant touch. Pair a chunky sweater with a knee length skirt or a belted flowy mid-length skirt. Mock turtlenecks with high waisted slacks are also fun to rock with a turban or vintage inspired hat. To add drama, consider a hat with netting or just add gloves!

Try stripes or an oversized bow. Pin curls or a braided bun can complement this look perfectly. Add pearls to make the overall effect posh. Grey or black pearls work well for those who prefer the less ostentatious look.
