Tulle is one of those fabrics that bring back a feeling of nostalgia for most women, memories of playing in tulle dress up skirts or maybe a tulle tutu from ballet class. This year tulle is getting a grown up make over and we love the way this delicate and ladylike fabric is being used to enhance skirts in trendy and edgy ways. Tulle skirts can be worn in a super girly way by paring them with a lace top, for a romantic and sweet look. Or you could opt to wear the tulle skirt with completely contrasting pieces like a leather jacket or slouchy t-shirt. Celebrities even love this trend, fashion icons Leighton Meester and Scarlett Johansson both donned stunning tulle gowns at this year’s award show red carpets.

For the office we recommend wearing a skirt that has only one outer layer of tulle, so it acts as a subtle sheer overlay. Pair this delicate skirt with a structured blazer and you’ll be good to go. This look works for the office because it allows you to enjoy the elegant and romantic feel of the tulle, without having to wear a tutu to the office. For an evening out we recommend pairing a blush toned tulle mini skirt with a leather jacket and simple black pumps. This look is rocker chic but with a flirty little twist.

Try The Trend Tips

A tulle skirt is a great way to show off your girly side in a grown up way, so we highly suggest you ladies invest in one of these fun skirts ASAP.

Remember that to much tulle can add bulk to your hips and bottom, so make sure that the number of layers of tulle in the skirt don’t overtake the bottom half of your body.

Try pairing your tulle skirt with a cropped jacket, since the jacket will end somewhere around your midsection it won’t disrupt the look of the tulle skirt.
