It has to be the right tulle skirt.
But if it’ s right it can be very, very right.
A tulle skirt was once my most favourite piece in the wardrobe – a white one worn with a black tee and a black style accessorised with white. The fullness of the skirt never worried me and the waist could be cinched in until it felt about right. I could even wear it a little under the waistline as slender let’s that happen.
These days and I have no complaints, happy to be, but the slender has been replaced by a few years of living. Cut, the shape and just about every little detail of a skirt made in tulle must be right. The fullness can’t be too and the waistband needs to provide the definition I am lacking. I still like wearing one on the weekends but in a more casual fashion and a tulle skirt is no longer one for a big investment.
Which doesn’t mean we can’t wear one and wear it well. Now I style mine with a classic shirt or a plain tee – no bells, no whistles. Sneakers and if needs be a field jacket over the top.
The Goldilocks of tulle skirts? Yes this one is a win/win xv
