Non-Seyeds and black skullcaps

We know that among Ulama, Seyeds wear black turbans and non-Seyeds wear white ones. 

Does that rule extend to normal people (i.e. non-scholars) who want to wear a kufi/skullcap? I'm not asking whether there is anything in Fiqh that prohibits black ones for non-Seyeds because I'm almost sure there isn't, but would it be seen in any way inappropriate? Would other people assume they are Seyeds?

In early days, sayeds used to be known to wear black turbans and also black scarfs like the ones you see in muharram, but now everyone wears them, before it was used to show that someone is from the bloodline, white belts were also worn to show that a person is a mirza (sayed from mother side). Alot of other colours where used to identify a persons qualities and relations but i forgot them, hope this helps. And no, at this day and age, it wouldnt be inappropriate.It would be if you are wearing it to decieve people to show you respect as a sayed, as for non scholars wearing black skullcapes,im not sure, waiting more views on this matters.
