The Runway’s Style Formulas for Wearing Headscarves

Premium scarves, hijabs, turbans, and dupatta all signal a universally, over-arching movement for being covered but in unique, sartorial ways. It’s no surprise then that the headgear, whether in the form of an intricately-twisted turban or wrap, consistently emerges as a striking hair accessory on the ready-to-wear and couture runways for Fall 2017 and beyond.

See the most recent Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 extravaganza, where models including Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber, and Taylor Hill took to the runway in silk, jewel-encrusted turbans and scarves worn to one side. Meanwhile, at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2017 Couture show, models sported metallic gold tear drops paired with embellished shawls draped over their heads.  Sometimes, scarves are more than just a mere fashion statement. Also serving as a religious accoutrement, who can forget when Vogue Arabia cover girl Halima Aden made history as the first hijab-wearing model at the Yeezy Fall 2017 show? In the gallery ahead, we round up the best scarf moments from the runways of Givenchy, Donna Karan, Issa, and more.
