I Love This Skirt. Period.
Just a few notes of that snappy theme song from Sex And The City conjures up images of Carrie Bradshaw walking the streets of NYC in her pretty, pink tulle skirt. I loved it then and I love it now (maybe even more)!
Can you wear a tulle skirt over 40 and still look chic and sophisticated? You bet you can! You can wear it at 20 and you can wear it at 40+. In fact, I’m sharing 3 looks with the same tulle skirt that are classic, and ageless. I love finding reasons to wear this skirt! Dinner…sure! Why not? Grocery store…yup. Ok, maybe not the grocery store but a day or evening event, lunch with girlfriends, or just because I feel like it! Keep scrolling to find out just how versatile a tulle skirt can really be…
#1) Over A Dress
Expert layering is truly an art form. This & Other Stories black and white polka dot dress has the perfect hemline for layering over the tulle skirt without adding any bulk. I added my Elisabetta Franchi belt to nip in the dress at the waist. I threw a one-button wool-blend coat from Express over my shoulders, which feels chic and effortless. The exact belt and dress are unfortunately sold out right now, but I linked similar options above that will work perfectly for pulling off this look.
The skirt adds a touch of drama and femininity to this outfit. The longer hemline offers coverage and the layering is unexpected…which is why I love it SO much. I was truly inspired by this gorgeous hotel in Sevilla, Spain. It was by far the most fabulous hotel I’ve ever stayed in. While not in NYC like Carrie, I channeled her same confident, anything-goes, fashion-forward style with this look.
#2) With A Blazer
In this look, I paired the same tulle skirt with my Balmain Blazer, a simple cami, and the same belt and booties. The classic double-breasted blazer is all business, and the skirt makes it a more feminine look. The belt breaks up the neutral colors of the cami and skirt and defines my waist. Because the skirt is a statement piece, I kept everything else neutral and simple. The blazer is definitely a higher price point, but the fit is impeccable. I linked a more affordable option above.
If you’re interested, I reviewed whether this blazer is worth it or not in this post.
#3) Sequins & Pearls
This just might be my favorite look of the bunch. I get it…you aren’t going to cruise into school pick-up wearing this ensemble, but it is so elegant, chic, and perfect for a dressier winter event. I added multi-strand pearls and warm winter accessories for a touch of glam (and warmth). I’m wearing comfortable (for heels!) pointed-toe Sam Edelman pumps with a slightly flared heel that comes up a little further on the foot than the sister version, Hazel pump, which I also own and wear a ton. If you’re interested in another way to style this fabulous sequin top (that’s not just for the holidays) you’ll want to check out this post.
Do you see how this one tulle skirt is waaaaay more versatile than you might think? I also plan to style it with Chelsea boots and a slouchy sweater – the possibilities are (almost) endless!
