Style Advice of the Week

For as long as we know it, ballerinas have been prancing around stage in tutus since the first ever ballet. As a little girl I remember putting on a leotard, ballet flats and a tiny pink tutu for dance class each week. As we get older, some parts of our wardrobe become outdated and sadly forgotten. But of course, there are certain trends that we find make a shocking appearance each season, and after a few wears, it’s baffling to recall that the new staple in our wardrobe was at one point merely nonexistent.

Those tiny pink tutus I mentioned previously are composed of a material that we generally don’t come across on a regular basis. Tulle is a fabric that is sheer, lightweight and totally versatile. This season ballerinas won’t be the only ones walking around in a skirt entirely made of tulle. If you take a look at this Fashionista, you can see that anyone is able to wear this type of skirt, and there are so many different ways to do so. Taking a look at her outfit, we see that she chose to wear a solid pair of black leggings underneath a cream tulle skirt. Although she is wearing a sweater similar in color, the tulle gives the look an exciting accent, and does a great job standing out.

As I’m sure you can tell on all major shoe sites, sneakers are in this season! The pair this Fashionista chose to wear go great with her outfit, and most notably, the tiny gold stars on the side match the coloring of the tulle as well as the fun headphones around her neck!

There are so many other ways people can wear tulle around town. While still in this transition season, try a tulle skirt with a sweater or light jacket. Tulle comes in so many different colors, so experiment with all different shades! Those times you feel a brisk wind in the air, try out a graphic T-shirt and denim jacket. As summer approaches, a fun idea is to try a cropped top with a longer length skirt and matching sandals. There are so many different ways to wear tulle this season, so make sure to dress it up or dress it down, and find your perfect style to play around.
