How To Style A Tulle Skirt For Fall and Channel Your Inner Carrie Bradshaw!

Meet Cathy Williamson

I’m Cathy Williamson of The Middle Page, and I’m so excited to be contributing to Busbee Style for this post! Erin is a friend of mine with a fantastic sense of style (that’s why you follow her!), and I am thrilled to share my ideas on fall fashion trends. So, how DO you wear the tulle trend? A little goes a long way and skirts are the best way to try it out. If you don’t have a tulle skirt, it’s a fun piece to have in your closet to dress up or down.

Women’s Tulle Skirt For Fall

This skirt is the tulle you need for a great fall look (like how I did that?). I have always been a sucker for tulle (all those years of dance lessons and recitals), but it was not something I would incorporate into my wardrobe until Carrie Bradshaw made it cool! Still, I probably would not (at my age) wear a full-blown tulle look, but tulle skirts are making a big comeback. If you are like most of us here (40 and beyond), how do you wear this trend?

How To Style A Tulle Skirt For Fall

My favorite way to style a “poufy” skirt is with a structured top or jacket. I love the skirt I am wearing because it incorporates a bit of tulle to give it something extra. The movement is fantastic when you walk! I paired it with a fitted turtleneck and boots, but a cropped jacket and kitten heels would also be a great choice. I even think a tee and combat boots work with the juxtaposition of a tulle skirt. You can find tops made of tulle and even tulle-embellished heels. Are you going to try this trend? Personally, I like subtle versus over-the-top!

Anthropologie is one of the best places to find great tulle pieces if you’re wanting to try this trend!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I asked Erin if I could mention this, and she said yes! I’m a survivor of Triple Negative Breast Cancer. It’s important to mention this because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I am incredibly passionate about awareness. Triple Negative is a more aggressive form of breast cancer. You can read more about it here. I am nine years out and so grateful that I am still here. Triple Negative is not fueled by hormones and does not discriminate against age. There are women in their 20s who have been diagnosed with it. I wanted to bring this to the attention of Erin’s readers. Please make your mammogram appointments (if you are due) and do self-checks. If you have younger daughters, talk to them about this and make sure they do their self-checks. Early detection is critical! Thank you for letting me share this with you!

I hope you all have a great day!
