En Pointe: How to Style a Tulle Skirt

Tulle skirts aren’t just for ballerinas anymore. They are dramatic and feminine pieces that can be styled many ways, even for an everyday outfit.

Some may consider a tulle skirt a special occasion piece, but for daring fashionistas, it can be incorporated into an everyday wardrobe. These skirts come in a range of styles, from mini to maxi and everything in between.


Styling a tulle skirt may seem intimidating, but the skirt is versatile and can work with anything from a T-shirt and Chuck Taylors to a lace top and strappy heels. Remember to add accessories, because statement necklaces, retro sunglasses, and bangles will help complete your look.


So, grab a tulle skirt, embrace your girly side, and create a look that would make Carrie Bradshaw or Audrey Hepburn proud.

Inspired by a vintage Parisian vibe, a tulle skirt and stripes complement each other well and embody a clean, classic, and feminine look.

Complemented with Florals and Prints
Go for a soft and girly feel by matching your tulle skirt with florals and other feminine prints, like polka dots. Softer hues will add to this feminine feel, or you can try a sassier print like leopard.
