It’s not about the piece, it’s how you wear it. The tulle midi skirt works with your favorite plaid shirt, or those fishnets you’ve been dying to wear!
We all remember Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw and her tulle ensembles. From the tulle mini skirt she wore in the opening credits to her gorgeous seafoam midi tulle skirt in Sex and the City 2, the tulle midi skirt goes beyond the Chanel suit, symbolizing a bolder sense of femininity.
Madonna was another fashion pioneer who dolled up her tulle skirts with lace bodices, thick eyebrows, and fishnet hand gloves. The style is Victorian meets the original pop-punk look.
The truth is- tulle shouldn’t be reserved for the dress-up box or your wedding veil. In fact, the versatility of tulle is endless. The fabric is playfully sheer and looks brilliant in neon colors or rich nudes.
A fluffed out tulle skirt adds just the right amount of silhouette without looking overdressed or gaudy.
You can go from street punk to glamour just by switching out your top and changing your shoes. We’d argue that tulle is the perfect day to night fabric.
Designers like Mary Goddard incorporate lace’s quirky cousin into many of her shows, it is a staple in her collection.
It’s simply minimalistic- you can throw on a band shirt and a tulle skirt with some sneakers without worrying about fashion don’ts.
Opt for a navy blue skirt. Black is a little too risque for some people in the office. Navy is mature and classic. The gingham blouse adds a professional flavor to the look, but it’s still fun. Add a statement piece necklace and kitten heel pumps. Have a little fun with the colors and overall construction of your top!
Extra style tip: If you don’t like kitten heels, wear your favorite pair of flats or loafers.
Double Trouble! Leather and Tulle.
A cropped, twisted hem top with a beautiful grid midi tulle skirt is comfy and sexy. Wear sneakers and a leather jacket for refined streetstyle. Tulle skirts with designs are definitely a must-have!
Extra style tip: Wear a leather vest with punky buttons.
