When it comes to tulle skirts, I don’t believe there’s a cut-off age where it’s considered inappropriate to wear one. I for one plan to be rocking them for as long as I’m on this Earth. Tulle skirts are one of the most fun items of clothing a woman can own. They’re so captivating and are sure to get you lots of attention.

I started rocking tulle skirts in my late teens (I mean, the tutu skirts my mom forced me to wear as a toddler don’t really count) and have not looked back since. Every time I whip out my favorite tulle skirt, I always get tons of compliments from strangers. This goes to show you that wearing a tulle skirt is not for the shy or conservative dressers.


I also realized that a lot of people would love to sport a tulle skirt but are unsure of how to style one. In today’s post, I would be going over different ways to wear a tulle skirt to create stylish looks. I would be showing you how to create chic outfits with different types of tulle skirts. Tulle skirts come in many colors and lengths and you’re bound to find something that fits your personal style.

Before we get into the different tulle skirt outfit ideas, I would like to share with you some great sites where you can shop for a tulle skirt.

Where to buy tulle skirts

i) Etsy

Etsy is probably my top destination to shop for a long tulle skirt. Long tulle skirts make for great outfits for an engagement or pre-wedding shoot. Many women actually opt for a white tulle skirt on their wedding day instead of a traditional white dress. You could easily pair it with a white lace top to create an elegant wedding look.

Chicwish is a great site to check out if you’re looking for tulle skirts to wear to special occasions. You can dress their tulle skirts up or down by switching up your choice of tops.

Amazon offers a smaller selection of tulle skirts to choose from but with many more color options. A lot of their tulle skirts can be used to create a more casual look or even for a maternity shoot.

The best shirts to wear with a tulle skirt

1) A crop top

A cropped top is a great option to go with if you’re headed to a casual event. There are so many different styles of crop tops to choose from, depending on the dress code of your event. A cropped sequin top paired with a midi tulle skirt is a great outfit idea for a cocktail event while a crop top in a bright color would be a good choice for a birthday party.

Complete your look with a pair of heels if you’re headed somewhere fancy. You could also opt for a pair of ballet flats if you’re going to be doing lots of walking. Don’t forget the statement necklace to elevate your overall look.

2) A t-shirt

You can pair your tulle skirt with a t-shirt to create a more edgy look. Try going with a graphic t-shirt if you’re looking to create a casual outfit with something as dramatic as a tulle skirt. An easy way to complete this edgy style is by adding a denim jacket on top of your graphic tee. Add a pair of combat boots for a more daring outfit.

You can also soften up your tulle and t-shirt look by choosing a v-neck shirt and throwing on a pair of heels. A soft pink tulle skirt can be paired with a low-neck white shirt for a chic look.

3) A sweater

During the colder months, you can still rock the tulle skirt trend by pairing your tulle skirts with cozy sweaters. For more casual looks, an oversized sweater is the best choice. You could complete your look with ankle boots and even a leather jacket. If you’re headed for date night, throw on a pair of black heels.

Fitted sweaters could be worn instead of chunky knits to create more formal looks. Try pairing a fitted sweater in a neutral color with a maxi tulle skirt for a chic evening look. Don’t forget the statement earrings. Pair your mini tulle skirt with a pair of tights and knee-high boots for a modern city look.

Here’s another great way to style your tulle skirt with a sweater.

4) A denim shirt

Another easy way to style your tulle skirts on a casual day is to pair them with a denim shirt. You can tie your shirt into a front knot for a more flirty look or add a belt on top to make your waist look smaller. Opt for a mini skirt if you’re headed to a casual function.

Throw on a pair of white sneakers or a pair of flats to complete your outfit. A maxi skirt or a mini one could be paired with a fitted denim shirt. A small bag or purse would be my choice of handbag.

5) A tank top

A simple top such as a tank top is a great for creating casual style with a tulle skirt. You could decide to add some layers if you feel a little over exposed. A black leather jacket for example would be a good idea to pair with a simple tank top to add some sass to your outfit. You could choose a pair of sneakers, high heels or flats to complete your outfit. Strappy heels work best for fancy occasions.

6) A blouse

Give your tulle skirt outfit a more professional look by pairing it with a blouse. During the warmer months, a short-sleeved blouse works well. Pair a silk blouse in a solid color with a tulle midi skirt for a chic tule skirt look you could wear to a more professional setting. A pair of open toe heeled sandals are a great way to complete your elegant outfit.

Play around with blouses in different colors and prints to create new looks with the same skirt. A blouse with polka dots would pair nicely with a black tulle skirt and a pair of black strappy heels.

I hope you’ve been inspired to rock a tulle skirt really soon to bring out your fun side. The right place to wear a tulle skirt is almost anywhere – avoid walking into the boardroom in one, but anywhere else is fair game. Try pairing yours with these different tops in your wardrobe.
