Vermeer's 1665 Girl with a Pearl Earring is an early example of the turban in women's dress. But its popularity rose later during the Regency period in Great Britain, from around 1811 to 1820. The fashion was inspired by increased trade with India for cottons, and probably also by interest in the Ottoman Empire and Turkey. The turban has remained popular, and useful, especially on bad hair days, something Gypsy here wouldn't know anything about. She just likes how the turban makes her look très chic.
