How to Rock a Tulle Skirt

Working title: Rock a tulle skirt without looking like one...

Out of all the trends we've seen churn out of the fashion machine that is Hollywood, there is one that seems to go awry quicker than my hair in a Florida heatwave: tulle. True- Carrie Bradshaw is the exception and wears it amazingly well, but for the most part, tulle skirts and anyone over the age of 5 generally do not fare well together. The problem has nothing to do with the skirt itself; rather it has everything to do with the companion pieces being donned at the same time (a.k.a the jacket and shoes). To avoid looking like a victim of closet vomit, think balance. Just as you would tone down a smoky eye with a nude lip; the tulle skirt need only be accompanied by simple, non-evasive pieces. Naturally the skirt will be the center of your outfit's attention, so the complimenting duds should be as tame as possible. Here are my top picks for dressing tulle:

1. Quilted Leatherette by Arden B
2. Cropped Jacket by Alberta Ferretti
3. Black Jacket by Steffen Schraut
4. Ruffle Skirt by LC Lauren Conrad
5. Tulle White Skirt by Balmain
6. Studded Belt Skirt by Gojane
7. Basic Pump by Aldo
8. Suede Ankle Boot by F21
9. Mary Jane Pump by 3.1 Phillip Lim

Hope you have a lovely weekend xo
PS. I can't believe it's already October! Before we know it will be 2011- ay yi yi.
