Most women think about brides and/or little girls dressing up like a princess when they think of tulle. Valid, right? But then there is a group of us who also think of Carrie Bradshaw. I mean, no one had ever pulled off a tulle skirt quite like her! And while that’s an iconic look that I’ll always love, how often can you really replicate it in your everyday life? Pretty sure I’ve just been waiting for a toned down version that I could actually wear… and then Banana Republic made this pleated tulle skirt and all my dreams came true. ?
In the spirit of practicality, I decided to pair this tulle skirt with a sensible tie top for a sophisticated look. I love that the playful tulle fabric is all of a sudden appropriate for a conservative event or work day when paired with a classic top like this. How fun is that?!
I also wanted a really simple clutch for this look, so I tucked in the straps of my favorite new black crossbody bag. Voila! That’s seriously one of my favorite hacks… no one needs to know it usually has a chain!
When was the last time you wore tulle?
Would you wear this pleated tulle skirt, or is this still a little “out there” for you? I’d love to know your thoughts!
