Tulle skirts are one of my favourite wardrobe pieces – they’re so floaty and feminine, and make me feel like a ballerina. However, when I’m wearing them, I want to look chic and not like I’m dressing up for a toddler’s birthday party! In today’s post, I’m sharing four options on how to style a tulle skirt. The key is picking a top that contrasts with your tulle skirt and balances out your look.
HOW TO STYLE A TULLE SKIRT WITH A BLAZER
The most sophisticated way to wear a tulle skirt is to pair it with a blazer. This feels like something I’d wear when I wanted to make a statement and stand out – like attending Fashion Week (hopefully I’ll get to go again someday). You can play around with the length of the blazer – I’ve seen outfits with oversized blazers as well as cropped ones. Since there is so much contrast in style between the blazer and skirt, I kept the colour scheme simple so that it would all flow together.
HOW TO STYLE A TULLE SKIRT WITH A SWEATER
My most-worn tulle skirt combination is pairing it with a sweater. I pick something light and drapey that balances out my frilly skirt and dresses it down, making the whole look more casual. You can’t go wrong with a monochromatic or cream sweater – mine are all from H&M.
HOW TO STYLE A TULLE SKIRT WITH A LEATHER JACKET
One of the easiest ways to wear a tulle skirt is to pair it with a cropped faux leather moto jacket. The leather jacket adds edginess to the whole look, while the black colour contrasts nicely with the pastel of the skirt. My favourite faux leather jackets are from ZARA – they look designer but are usually priced under $100.
HOW TO STYLE A TULLE SKIRT WITH A FITTED/CROPPED TOP
For an extra feminine look – you can pair your tulle skirt with a fitted crop top or a bodysuit. A lace fabric works especially well. With regards to contrast in this look, the cropped fit of the top contrasts with the flared layers at the bottom. Picking a cropped/bodysuit style means that you don’t have to worry about tucking in your top or having it puff out awkwardly.
