Weekend Style Crush: The “Ballerina skirt” AKA The Tulle Skirt

July 8, 2016

Who cares that the tulle skirt has been a popular fashion item for a couple of years now. Some styles are simply here to stay and the tulle skirt has proven to be one of them. If you haven’t already gotten your hands on one of these beauties, then I’m here to remind you exactly why owning one or more can save you from any fashion-malfunction you are most likely to encounter this Winter. Tulle is fun and, by wearing it to any occasion other than a ballet recital or your wedding, tells people around you allot about your spontaneity. What’s more is it promises to bring every one of your drab pieces of clothing currently in your closet back to life.

Wearing your tulle skirt in Summer is pretty easy, but there’s also plenty ways to pull it off  in Winter and NOT look like you’re competing for the lead role in Swan lake.

Cape Town is well-loved for its gorgeous Winter sun, on which days a light and breezy skirt such as the tulle is perfect. Hell it even brightens up the dreary rainy days. It is also a handy accessory for whenever you may need a pick-me-upper or want to show others your fun, flirty and carefree side.

Whether you have tried any of these styles or whether you have been too afraid to take the risk, you have to admit they are pretty darn adorable; and just in case you have forgotten, I am happy to remind you of the best ways to wear your tulle skirt these cold Winter months.

With these beauties being so popular right now, you can easily find them at stores countrywide. Elemental Emporium has them in Black, White, Grey, Mint and Cerise Pink for R560.
