Since the opening sequence of Sex and the City, the tulle skirt has been moving out of the ballet studio and onto the catwalk! In mini, midi and even maxi styles and a variety of colors, this skirt is actually highly versatile and so fun to wear! Our Chicago editor, Kaleigh Glaza tried out a classic white style from Beautulleful and styled it three different ways for fall. Beautulleful is all about the tulle skirts and this girly item is one that can easily be taken from a high fashion look to the city streets.
Though a tulle skirt is usually seen as a more dressed up look, there’s still time for a few more fun day events before the fall weather really sets in! So dress down the look with one of the season’s hottest pieces: a graphic tee. From vintage concert tees to fun catch phrases (we love these from blogger Sincerely Jules), pick a tee that reflects your personality, and layer it up with a chambray shirt if the weather gets colder. If you want a really trendy look, add a baseball cap and reflective aviators like these from Urban Outfitters. It’s all about taking this very girly piece and giving it a fun edge!
Ballet is a traditional dance and style, so this skirt is perfect for any preppy girl looking to feel like a princess! Top the skirt with a fitted top in a classic print like polka dots or stripes, and finish the look with a traditional top knot or sleek ponytail. Keep your makeup and jewelry simple and light to make the skirt the center piece. We recommend a nude or gold heel and delicate pieces from jewelers like Gorjana Griffin. The goal with this look is to keep is simple and ready for an evening at the country club or even ballet!
GIRLS NIGHT OUT
This look is also perfect for a night with the girls, who are sure to appreciate a great full skirt! Whether it’s an upscale happy hour event or a fancy dinner at the hottest new spot, now is the time to take a sassier approach. Go for a striking heel like these leopard ones from Nordstrom or splurge on a bold red pair, and amp up your accessories with an eye-catching statement necklace. We love the options from J. Crew like this black collar.
