Happy Tuesday, friends and Happy 2020! Focusing on style sessions, I polled in IG stories asking what fashion related topics you’d be most interested in reading this quarter. The majority of you marked an interest in styling Spring favorites! Skirts, jackets and handbags were just a few options listed. I thought to start the year off with a style share adhering to preference! Today’s post shares three ways to style a tulle skirt!
Now I know the tulle skirt can be a bit out of box. This feminine piece is not for everyone. And if I am being really honest – I haven’t always been the girly girl myself. It could be a childhood of forced dresses until 5, or my current day to day doesn’t always call for the dress up. It’s only been a few adult years that I’ve really discovered my style, utilized style creativity and opted a princess persona. More so, the tulle skirt can often be labeled a ‘one time wear’ and isn’t always purchased with a whole lot of versatility in mind. But, for all those who do enjoy it’s flirtatious and angelic appeal, we can all agree it IS a gorgeous year round piece. An instant queen status, upon wear. And contrary to what one may think – can prove versatile with a little closet creativity.
Three ways to style a tulle skirt:
Mix textures and pair with a sweater // I shared this look when outlining Holiday party looks, and still believe it’s the perfect look for any festive occasion. Here I chose a sweater with a bit of texture to contrast with the tulle fabric. Sweaters can take spotlight in a look, so to balance the eye you can front tuck a larger sweater or choose a cropped sweater to draw an equal notice to the skirt. Such a pretty combo, don’t you think?
Add in a bit of edge // Add a leather jacket to any look and you’ve got edge. I love the style mix, don’t you? The fabrics together create the perfect contrast – a little feminine with rebellion. I kept the leather jacket, bodysuit, and boots monochromatic to spotlight our feature. The perfect date night look!
Pull your everyday basics // One way to turn this ‘one time wear’ piece versatile – shop your closet! Pull those everyday basics you love most! I am sure you’ve a graphic tee lying around. And a classic chambray shirt (or even denim jacket) pulls together this look nicely. Before you know it your everyday will involve more twirls than none!
There you have it, three ways to style a tulle skirt! How about you – Which of the three is your favorite? Whether you’ve a tulle skirt in closet or it’s on wishlist this Spring, let it be the ‘tulle’ to your creative style!
