If you haven’t already noticed this on my blog, then this post will definitely confirm my obsession with Tulle skirts. What can I say, heavily influenced by Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & The City, I love her sense of style where she could easily combine something feminine with something structured and masculine. This can also be summed up as my style.
So, its all too natural for me to go for Tulle skirts that are the most feminine piece of clothing and mix it with some structured and literally wear it everyday. I have a whole collection of Tulle skirts. In this post I wanted to share my tips on how I style them for not just special occasion but also for everyday outfits. While a Tulle skirt looks so chic & feminine, there are so many versatile ways of styling the skirt.

Life Is Too Short to wear Frumpy Clothes! Dress Up!!
Are Tulle Skirts Still In Style?
I wondered about it a lot myself. It does feel a bit too feminine in the age of ripped jeans, slouchy jeans and loungewear. And for someone who wears all of the above, I needed to make sure that I am not wearing dated clothes.
Before we can get to that, I just wanted to share a small history lesson of the tulle skirts or tulle in general. Sorry, am a history nerd! Tulle was first made as a form of lace in 1700s to be used in garments, but the fabric got patented as Tulle in 1809 and was made to be added to Evening gowns, wedding gowns and lingerie.
While, that was the primary intent of the fabric, designers all over the world have added their spin to the fabric. In 2020 itself, I saw them in major fashion runways from brands like Valentino, Dior, Dolce Gabanna & so on. So, the answer is NO. I still see so many brands like Ted Baker, Kate Spade, even Gap coming up with their versions of the fabric.
Now, the fabric is also used in dresses, I recently bought one from H&M for fall which I shared in my H&M Fall winter favorites in this post, I am focusing on Tulle Skirts, because they are one of the most versatile piece of clothing and I think every woman should own at least 1 of them.

You can also pick tulle skirts that have patterns in them or even printed tulle fabric skirts. They still look feminine, but these skirts generally have fewer layers of tulle so that the pattern or print is standing out compared to the tulle.
I have also noticed that going for midi skirts makes the outfit casual compared to going for above the knee skirts that tend to look fancier. And you can also add casual clothing pieces with the tulle skirt to tone it down.
