The tulle midi continues to dance down the runways and into our hearts this season. The midi length softens the ballerina effect, creating a chic, glamorous, and undeniably feminine look. Whether you prefer full, voluminous styles or a simple silhouette with subtle impact, the tulle midi skirt can be worn casual or formal in a multitude of ways. With the right accessories you can even turn this stage staple into savvy streetwear in an instant. Try these three pairings to get the most out of this versatile piece.
Chambray: To Tie or Not to Tie
The chambray shirt has long been a classic go-to. This effortlessly chic piece can be paired with almost anything, creating a relaxed, yet put together, look. To dress down your tulle midi skirt, add a chambray top, buttoned and loosely tucked in or tied at the waist. The casual chambray combined with the dramatic tulle creates a balance that is just right for a weekend brunch or an afternoon of museum hopping.
The Odd Couple: Leather & Tulle
If tulle seems too girly, try pairing it with edgier pieces to create a look that’s more your style. A cropped leather jacket worn over a graphic tee adds a touch of rock ‘n roll while the tulle midi keeps the outfit especially feminine. Carry a fringed bag and layer on necklaces or bangle bracelets to play up the eccentric vibe you’re going for.
Like whipped cream on a sundae, the tulle midi skirt topped with delicate lace becomes a sweet, fluffy confection. On their own, lace and tulle add a touch of elegance to an ensemble, but together, they exude ultra femininity, reminiscent of vintage prom night or old Hollywood glam. The contrasting texture of the two opulent fabrics adds depth, creating an on-trend look for a wedding, dinner date or cocktail party.
