I have recently become very fond of tulle as a fabric. It reminds me a bit of ballerinas, but this year the ballerina can wear her tutu off the stage at the Opera house. I’m not exactly ballerina-esque but tulle has captured me. Skirts are probably my favourite and I have spotted a few that are a mid-length and can be edged up with a sweatshirt or oversize knit. Topshop and Zara have the best ones so far that are not too expensive if you want to try the trend.
Tulle works beautifully for a formal occasion and if you haven’t heard of Needle and Thread than make yourself familiar with it ( you can get it on Net-a-Porter and in Brown Thomas). The label merges tulle with embellishment to create crafted pieces that make a real statement. The shorter lengths with be perfect for party season. Tulle does have a vintage look about it, and you will see a lot in vintage shops such as Harlequin in Dublin and Beyond Retro in London.
I think a boot looks great with this look and Topshop have an amazing pair of embroidered boots which are reasonably priced. You can do the bare leg look, or try a pair of barely black tights which pay homage to the eighties. Whatever way you decided how to wear tulle you can assured, there is a piece with your name on it.
Do you like this texture? Or is a bit girly?
