Tulle skirts have been making their way into mainstream fashion lines recently. “Tulle” is just another term for “tutu”, a costume skirt commonly used for ballerinas. So, it’s not a surprise that the skirt is whimsical, flirty, and downright girly. If you like this look, you may be wondering how to pull it off outside ballet since tulle skirts can easily look costume like if worn in certain ways.
Depending on what you’re going to wear with tulle skirt and where you’re going to wear it, the puffiness is something you would want to take note of. For instance, if you’re sporting a slouchy or loose top, a puffy tulle skirt will just distort the shape of your outfit so better opt for a less puffy style. Also, to avoid being costumey and looking like a ballerina, keep away from ballet flats or any flats closed shoes. Instead, opt for boots, stilettos, knee-high gladiators, platforms, and sandals to tone down the overwhelming ballerina skirt.
For adding some dose of femininity, you may pair your tulle skirt with lace or any feminine tops. You may opt for a black lace blouse or a black blouse that has lace sleeves. You have the option to sport a leather jacket and wear baroque boots and classic pumps as your footwear. The great thing about a leather jacket being paired with tulle skirt is that it balances out with the feminine touch of the skirt and lace top.
For balancing the elegant and sophisticated tulle skirt, wear it with a basic tank top. You may match the color of your tank to your tulle skirt or wear some contrast by opting for a plain white tank and a black tulle skirt. The fabrics of your outfit – a cotton tank top and chiffon-like tulle skirt will create a sharp contrast and bring some interest.
Also, crop tops can give two types of look with tulle skirts. It will either add a little sexiness to the style or, with the skirt cinched at the waist it will create a fake dress. Either way, crop tops are excellent for tulle skirts, no matter if it’s puffy or not.
Keep a fresh look with sweaters as your tops. Whether it’s figure-hugging or slight baggy, sweater balances the formal and grand looks of tulle skirt making it more casual and stylish. You may go for a minimalist style by keeping accessories to the minimum and sticking to neutral shades or go colorful with accented bag and shoes colors.
For a gothic chic style, match your white tulle skirt with an all black ensemble. Sport a black leather jacket, black baroque boots, black tank top and black gloves for a dramatic look. You may wish to wear a dark lipstick such as burgundy red, deep purple, or even black.
For a classic and timeless style, you may sport some classic prints such as stripes, polka dots, checks, plaids, houndstooth, gingham, and such. Keep your footwear in neutral tones to keep the look classic and simple.
There are so many ways to look fabulous with tulle skirt. All you need is a little bit of creativeness and a good fashion sense. It’s time to sport your ballerina skirts outside ballet and be a head turner on the streets with your creative style.
