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).
What is your favorite piece to style? What do you wear just to have a little fun?
