Perfect Outfit: How To Work A Turban

Instead of breaking your back carrying those hefty September issues around town, just take a page from today's Perfect Outfit. Spotted in west L.A., our new friend Cassidy skillfully paired gray paper-bag shorts, a blush oversized blouse, and some substantially strapped sandals to create the base for our new favorite autumn uniform. But the final twist that really tops it off is a totally rad turban: This piece is unexpected touch but really ties the entire look together and makes it feel fresh for fall. Clearly, we think Cassidy's outfit is head and shoulders above the rest and, naturally, we recommend you be a copycat!
Snag these four pieces to assemble the perfect outfit now: (clockwise from far right)
Essential #1:
A little bit of fabric goes a long way when it's smartly folded into this season's hottest headgear. This brilliant turban is the season's hottest topper and we can't wait to wear it all fall, just like Cassidy!
