How To Wear a Tulle Skirt - 3 Ways I Wear Mine and More

How to wear a tulle skirt- change your accessories!

I danced ballet for years growing up, and I loved seeing the tulle skirt come in style for the last year. It is such a beautiful piece, and I think every woman secretly wants one. The hard part is finding a place or a way to wear one! After struggling with styling my tulle skirt, I decided I like pairing it with a striped tee best. It adds a print to the fun texture of the skirt and it is a basic that I wear ALL the time. I always default to adding my favorite basics when I'm trying to figure out how to wear something new. What I loved about the tulle and stripe combination is that I could change just the accessories to create a totally different look. I've got a few of my favorites below.

Skirt: Thrifted/DIY by me
Shoes: Target
Clutch: Thrifted
Cuff and Earrings: ONE little MOMMA

First up, I tried dressing down this fancy skirt even more with leopard ballet flats and cognac clutch. I think this is the most casual that a tulle skirt can look and it works. Of course, I always love mixing leopard and stripes for a mixed print combo.

To dress up the skirt with a hint of edge, I threw on these perforated black peep toe heels. I like the gold clutch and the gold jewelry and could see this more for an evening event.

This was my favorite combination of the three. I love the pop of red and teal with the black and white. This look feels a little French and would be perfect for shopping or a fun lunch date. 

Now, honestly I haven't worn my tulle skirt out and about yet. I think I'll try it at church, but as a momma, I have few chances to wear one. I try to always make things momma friendly and on the causal side around here, and I think I've done that with this skirt. I do think that it is a fun piece to have in my closet, and I definitely want to pull it out when the right even comes around.

The real reason I'm styling this skirt today is because - I MADE it! Well, sort of. I refashioned this skirt out of this dress here....
