This week I read a very interesting article about Google's research on fashion trends for Spring 2015. According to the research, the most searched article of clothing online during the first four months of 2015 was a tulle skirt. To be completely honest, I was a bit surprised by this discovery but also I quickly reminded myself about my adventures with tulle skirt. Three years ago, at my birthday party, I was wearing a black 50's inspired sleeveless dress with full skirt with a light pink tulle lining. It was fun night and I fell great. This Christmas I purchased a black silver tulle skirt from Asos which I wore for holiday celebrations. I almost started thinking that a tulle skirt is not an easy piece of clothing to wear during the day without looking too much like characters of Sex in the City or just too dramatic.
I started looking for inspiration online of how to incorporate tulle skirt into your daily wardrobe and I came up with a few simple rules. The skirt itself draws a lot of attention so in order to tone it down, the outfit should be matched with simple well-fitted tops (white, black t-shirts, turtlenecks, solid color blouses). Avoid patterns, ruffles, to many details on your upper body to avoid the disco effect. For the evening occasions, you can try to experiment with long tulle skirts and to make it look modern wear them with jeans shirts or white men style shirts. (Although I recommend it to super tall ladies.) Simple accessories like bag or very feminine shoes in contrasting colors add a lot of chic to an every day outfit with a key element of a tulle skirt. I would recommend knee-length skirts with accentuated waist as those really elongate the silhouette.
Spring and Summer is a great time to try to experiment with this trend, even if you do not usually play with risky fashion ideas! Have fun and enjoy the Spring weekend!
