How To Wear A Tulle Skirt Without Looking Like A Ballerina

We know what you're thinking: tulle skirt is just another term for tutu, and there's no way you're wearing one. But, bear with us now, because you might be missing out.

We found ways to transform the childhood dress-up staple into daytime and evening looks that will get you through the season. You can try anything from adding tights and a blazer for the nine-to-five, or pairing your skirt with a metallic top for a cool night out.

Look below for more fuss-free ways to spruce up a tulle skirt without looking like a ballerina, unless you want to of course, which is something we fully support.

Go vintage with accessories like cat-eye sunglasses.
