Apparently tulle skirts are hot…
Don’t believe us? Ask Google.
Google knows because they have been tracking people’s fashion related search queries and studying the data to “distinguish between the trends to watch and the trends to forget”. And based on their findings, they have concluded that tulle skirts are trending.
We’re really not that surprised. We’ve been seeing tulle skirts on some popular bloggers for a while and they always look amazing.

How to wear your tulle skirt
So you’ve bought yourself a tulle skirt or you’re planning to buy one. Now you want to know how to wear it without turning heads for the wrong reasons. Here are some tips:
Don’t look like you’re about ready for your Swan Lake performance…
The whole idea is very simple – try to avoid looking like a ballerina unless of course that is your express goal.
- Go for high heeled sandals over ballerina flats
- Go for a button-up shirt over a top that looks like a leotard
- Don’t wear your tulle skirt with matching colored tights
- In fact don’t wear your tulle skirt with tights at all
- If you’re going to wear a top that looks like a leotard anyway, add a blazer or jacket
Avoid too much matching
- Don’t wear your tulle skirt with a top in a matching color
- Don’t match the color of your shoes to the color of your skirt
- Don’t match the color of your top to the color of your skirt
- Don’t match your purse to the color of your skirt
- And for heavens sake don’t match purse, top and shoes to the color of your skirt
You can of course ignore all these tips because it’s your outfit and you can do whatever you want with it. Besides, what the devil do we know about style? We’re just having a little fun. And that’s what you should be doing too. Have fun with your tulle skirt! If you want to go all ballerina girl, do your thing.
