40's Turban

Remember this photo from last Saturday? A turban is a really easy way to get a 40's home front look in no time and the least amount of effort. The turban, like the snood, are iconic peaces of WWII head wear that where an everyday practical way of keeping back your hair while they worked (I have a photo of a grate grate aunt in the 40's wearing one) but seeing that rationing meant the ordinary woman couldn't have hats it was cheep, only needing a large peace of fabric or (as bellow) knitted and accessorized with anything at hand if a more dressy look was wanted.
