The Tulle Skirt. It Doesn’t Get More Feminine Than That

It’s not easy to pull off the ballerina look outside of a performance of Swan Lake, but with a tulle skirt you can get the same femininity in your wardrobe without resorting to a full-on tutu. Although they work best in nude colours and pastels in simple, elegant outfits, you can make it work as part of your own style.

This quirky skirt design can instantly dress up even a plain t-shirt, and is perfect for creating a feminine shape – tapered at the waist, flared to below the knee. For a classic, dainty look, team it with a plain, cap sleeve t-shirt and pumps, or stilettos for an evening outfit. Alternatively, a tulle skirt can inject some girly energy into your ensemble if you prefer your style to be more mixed up; a band t-shirt and a pair of sneakers can off-set the softness of the skirt, and the ruffles add texture to any outfit.

Even in the winter, paired with a knitted jumper, tights and boots, this flared skirt can look as casual or glamorous as you make it, but always guarantees a girly, elegant style. And of course, there’s always your big day – tulle skirts and dresses look phenomenal as bridal wear, which is why it’s probably best not to opt for this style if you’re just a wedding guest…

The cut of the skirt is instantly flattering, no matter what body shape you have. The full, ruffled skirt covers problem areas such as the hips and thighs, and highlights the waist by naturally keeping it cinched in, which is perhaps why tulle skirts and dresses are always popular on the red carpet. Stars such as Emma Watson, Amy Adams, and the style icon herself, Audrey Hepburn, have all been seen in tulle dresses, so with their endorsement there’s no reason not to add this ultra feminine look to your own wardrobe.
