How to Style a Tulle Skirt

I think one of my absolute favorite things to style since starting the blog is the tulle skirt!  I love them!  I always have.  I remember pretending to be a ballerina when I was younger mostly because of my fancy for that fabulous puffy skirt!  And don’t even get me started on my days pretending to be a princess for that same reason!  I never really had the opportunity to truly play dress up then though so maybe that’s why I have such a fascination with them now.  I guess it reminds me of the little girl in me!

And besides…. tulle is definitely having a moment right now!  We are no longer constrained to saving this fabulous fabric for wedding days or a special event.  You can literally rock a tulle skirt any time you want and any way you want!  (btw Thanks Carrie Bradshaw!!)  And that is why is it is my favorite thing!  I always feel so liberated and free when I wear tulle, no matter how I style it!  It’s so fun, flirty, carefree and girly!!  I LOVE it!!

I actually just wore this look this weekend!  Just out – just because I wanted to!  And I loved every moment of it.  Of course, the majority of the time out I was rocking the slip ons… (much more comfortable)!!

Style Tips: Since tulle has so much volume, pair it with a fitted top.  Play up the femininity of the skirt by pairing it with other feminine details (like the pearl necklace and heels).  For contrast and to add a bit of edge, add an unexpected piece (like the slip on sneakers).
