Styling a Tulle Skirt, Style File Friday

I think that many of us dream of wearing a tulle skirt and while it may seem fun and exciting, it’s actually a little harder to style than I originally thought it would be. It’s tough to walk the line of fun but not juvenile when a tulle skirt is involved, and I wanted to make sure that I did it right. I’m going to share how I decided to style my skirt for my favourite night of the year- Barre After Hours!

I chatted about my amazing experience buying my skirt in one of my earlier Style File Friday posts- Sugar Berry Co was the most attentive and organised company that I have ever purchased from, and I would completely recommend them for any tulle skirt you might want! It might be slightly more expensive upfront to order a custom-made skirt but it ensures that you will have exactly what you want!

I know that the whole crop top and tulle skirt look has been popular for the last few years, but I don’t feel comfortable in a crop top (I think that they give me very odd proportions) and I think that that can contribute to looking juvenile. So, I set out to find a different top! I settled on RW&Co’s Solid Cami Blouse– it is a versatile piece that can be a styled in an infinite number of ways. It falls beautifully, has a fantastic feel, and is a timeless look! At only $40 CAD, it’s not horribly expensive and is a permanent piece at RW&Co- I already own it in navy, and will be looking for another cami in red for the holiday season.

Footwear is also always a big choice for a night out! My feet are somewhat worse for wear from all of the years of ballet (ironic given the event that I was attending…), so I’m never quite sure what I will be able to handle, but I still wanted to look elegant and fit the rest of the look. Although some people can certainly pull off flats and look chic, being 5’2″, it doesn’t quite work for a formal look for me, so I opted for my Marks and Spencer Leather Court Shoes! At only 4cm they are enough heel for a polished look but not so much to be uncomfortable. With a good black polishing, they look as perfect as ever, even after five years of use!

Pearls, Necklace, accessory, jewelry, ballet, style, fashion

I decided to go with pearl accessories, just a long strand and headband for simple elegance. I tend to wear pearls a lot as it is the Alpha Gam jewel so I just have a fair few pearl options. I chose to go with the longer strand- with hair down and a tank neckline, I think that a choker style necklace would have lead to a very crowded décolletage . I love that I can wear it long, knot it for more of a statement, and even wrap it and wear as a bracelet if I want a bit of a different look!

How would you style a tulle skirt?

    Tulle skirts are the best! For a day with my sisters, I’ll toss a cute lettered shirt on with my white one as long as it’s not a white t-shirt! Or you can pair a button up with them as well! They’re great for transitioning between the seasons!

        I usually wear a pair of cute flats that look like pointe shoes. Sometimes a pair of heels depending on the letters. Sneakers work too depending on how dressy you want to make it!
