Hey ballerinas and brides, tulle is no longer reserved for your veils and tutus! This delicate fabric has officially taken over the fashion waves with top designers incorporating them into their collections.
As designers continue to innovate fashion classics, tulle is the latest fabric to undergo a stylish transformation. Recently we’ve seen tulle sleeve accents, the fabric mixed with leather and silk, and most popularly interlaced into sportswear. Stella McCartney, Versace, and Givenchy have all gotten on the tulle bandwagon.
In honor of summer, we’re going to focus on the tulle skirt — you know, the one that Carrie Bradshaw made famous in the ‘Sex and the City’ opening credits? What’s wonderful about tulle is that it can be dressed up or down. And it adds the perfect amount of femininity to any outfit, whether you’re BBQing, brunching, or kicking it on the wedding dance floor.
Take a look at some of our favorite tulle looks for summer.
Ah, a summer BBQ. Your chance to unwind, let loose, and show off your casual fashion prowess. Dress down tulle by sporting a mini (pairs well with the warm weather) with a tee or modern white blouse.
Everyone’s go-to summer wedding dress option is a flirty, flowy dress. Instead of doing the same old, same old, think outside the dress box and rock a two-piece outfit, complete with a tulle skirt. Sequins amp up the sexiness too!
Brunch in the city with the girls: what we do best. Wear a floor-length tulle skirt as a statement piece, and give it the rock ‘n’ roll edge it deserves with a loose fitting top and killer purse. Heels are an option, but sneakers will give it a true street style feel.
