It use to be that tulle was a material pretty much reserved for slips, ballerinas, brides and bridesmaids. Today however, tulle skirts are appearing everywhere, worn by women from all walks and life and with all kinds of clothing budgets. One of the things that makes a tulle skirt so popular is that it is extremely versatile running the gambit from fun and flirty, to dressy to down right elegant.
Types of Tulle Skirts
There are several different types of these skirts you can choose from. Here are just a few of the different lengths and styles available.
- Short and sassy skirts made of tulle are perfect for teenagers and those who are 20 something and can run from short minis to just above the knee. These skirts come in a number of different colors making them even more fun to wear as like sequin dresses.
- The long tulle skirt can be worn either for a casual dinner with top with a tee, a tube top, or a tank. Add a more sophisticate and chic shirt and they are perfect for any dress up affair or that special night out.
- Tulle and lace skirts are quite popular and can be worn both for a more casual and fun look or for a more dressy style. A full tulle skirt makes the perfect party skirt and paired with the right silk top and glittering accessories makes it great for holiday wear.
When in Doubt Go For Basic Black
If you aren’t sure of what color of tulle skirt to choose, then opt for basic black, or some other basic color such as dove gray or dark blue. This will allow you to create a number of different looks from casual to sophisticated simply by choosing different styles and materials of tops and accessories. For a more dressed up and stylish look, try tying a wide ribbon around your waist instead of using a standard belt.
If you are looking to go chic and sophisticated, team up that skirt with a top in the same shade and color and add a contrasting ribbon for a belt and a jacket with a bit of glitter to it. A slim layered look can really ensure that all eyes are on you!
Can Larger Size Women Wear Tulle?
Larger women can definitely wear tulle and look just as chic and sophisticated as their thinner counterparts. When choosing a plus size tulle skirt, choose one that fit wells and avoid the fuller skirts. Something in a nice A line design would perfect and will give you all the versatility you need or want in a skirt made with material.
You don’t have to avoid the layered tulle skirt as long as the layers lay semi flat and don’t add a lot of puff to your skirt as like maxi skirt. Having a more lacy look to the tulle can also make the skirt look more impressive and trendy.
Finding the right skirt is simply a matter of trying on the skirts that catch your eye and look best on you. With so many colors and styles to choose from its easy to find at least one of these skirts that will help you define your own style and increase your wardrobe options.
