STYLE ADVICE: Tasteful Tulle

STYLE ADVICE: Tasteful Tulle

The weather down here in Raleigh has been less than wintery, but the Fashionistas aren’t complaining! We have the upper hand, and are embracing the opportunity to try out the spring/summer 2017 trends a little early. One of those seasonal trends displayed prominently on the Dior runway was tulle. I am loving this feminine and playful fabric, and couldn’t be more excited to see how it translates into street style in the upcoming months. That’s why I was stopped in my tracks upon seeing this babe sporting the trend in such a fun way!

This Fashionista brings the tulle trend to the streets of Raleigh in the form of a mid-length skirt, which she pairs with some wedge mules and a graphic crop top. Her interpretation of the trend makes it incredibly wearable for a night downtown or a fun dinner with friends. The addition of casual elements, like her hand embroidered T-shirt, make the romantic tulle a little more edgy and give it a street style twist. And I can’t be the only one gushing over the embroidered ‘girl power’ message that made its way into this ensemble! To top it all off, incorporating gold accessories complements her monochromatic outfit and makes for an elegant pop of color. I could not love this flirty little look any more!

Taking runway trends and making them your own is what real style is all about. Interpreting and translating high fashion trends into wearable items that you can employ in your real life is one of the hardest things that we, as young Fashionistas, can do. The trick is to keep it simple and use those trends as statement items to create tasteful outfits, like this babe did with her tulle midi skirt!
