How to Wear a Tulle Skirt

Tutus aren’t just for the ballet anymore! Ultra-feminine tulle skirts have been making their way into street style looks recently, and, I have to admit: I don’t hate it. Aside from street style appearances, these iconic skirts have been spotted on runways and in storefronts – even Carrie Bradshaw was a fan. Who knows? One might make its way into your closet soon!

Below, I’ve created two different looks featuring trendy tulle skirts. Scroll down to check them both out:

Casual + Edgy

T-Shirt, Jacket, Skirt, Shoes, Necklace, Earrings

Contrast the typical girly feel of a tulle skirt with a few edgy accessories to create a fun and trendy look. Wear a graphic print tee tucked into a tulle skirt, then add a pair of Converse for a casual vibe. Throw on a utility jacket and a link statement necklace to finish the outfit.

Soft + Feminine

Top, Skirt, Shoes, Scarf, Necklace, Earrings

Pull together a soft and feminine ensemble with a pretty cream-colored tulle skirt and mint-colored top. Flats wink to the ballet, while pearl earrings add a classic touch. Add some layers with a knit circle scarf, then accessorize with a gem necklace to complete the look.

What do you think?

    I love the outfits selections!
    I have a tulle skirt similar to the second outfit! Tulle skirts are whimsical and fun!
    I really like the utility jacket in the first outfit and the t-shirt.

    Kind of disappointed that the tutu in the second outfit is out of stock. Maybe check before you post if something is still in stock.

    I love these outfits!!! They’re both really cute, but the second one is more me. However I’m confused, why would you wear a necklace with a scarf? Won’t the scarf hide it? I’d also go for a scarf in a different color, or maybe a small pattern, but overall, it’s lovely!!!

    love these two looks! I have a black tulle tutu from f21 and I struggle putting it together without looking like a ballerina. Thanks for the help!
