Cecil Beaton knew how to take a portrait and one in particular I have always loved is this shot of the Bouvier sisters, Lee and Jacqueline.
And, they were wearing tulle.
I am so delighted with my tulle skirt and I spent some time last night deciding how I would layer it up. It is the most versatile piece and I see myself wearing this skirt in many different ways, from the serious to the playful. This skirt is a perfect addition to the travel wardrobe; tulle takes up little space and doesn’t crease that badly. Unexpected dinner plans, concert or theatre tickets and the tulle would be good to go.
I have worn tulle with a turtleneck and flats ( you may remember the portrait in My French Life ) and I have topped it with both a leather biker jacket and a schoolboy style blazer. Denim has also been part of the combination.
This season the stan smith sneakers or a pretty pair of pumps in combination with a tee shirt, white shirt or turtle neck and one of the jackets will accessorize the outfit. I might even throw my trench over the top when I am out and about.
A new piece should enhance the other key pieces in the wardrobe and the tulle skirt is a hard working addition… xv
