The appeal of tulle lends itself to airy and dreamy looks. One needs not be in ballet or anything to savor wearing tulle. Tulle skirts have been worn by many a fashion blogger and other fashionable types. From casual outfits to formal wear, tulle is very girly and fun. What seems to be trendy with tulle these days is the wearing of tulle skirts. No matter what, I'll be sure to cover the spectrum in regards to tulle here in this "StyleSpace by JBM" post.

I mostly will focus on tulle skirts and dresses here. That's the majority of what I will feature here in this post.

--- Tulle at a Glance ---

Tulle (pronounced like "tool") is very much girly-girl territory. The poofy and dreamy flair of wearing tulle lends itself to a number of outfits and styles. Tulle flares out beautifully and can provide for some fantastic outfits if styled properly. How one chooses to dress up with tulle depends entirely on one's style.

Tulle in Pictures.

What kinds of tulle garments are being discussed? These:

tulle skirt
^ from: - Tulle skirts can be airy and girly to wear. Appropriate shoes/sandals will maintain the loveliness such skirts provide; inappropriate (and unexpected) shoes can ruin the loveliness tulle skirts provide.

tulle dress normal
^ from: - This is a short dress made of tulle. This is a more sophisticated tulle garment rather than the more airy and dreamy tulle garment types showcased so far.

tulle dress formal
^ from: - It is also possible to be all dolled up wearing tulle! Check out this tulle prom dress, for instance.

There's your picture inspiration on tulle.

Styling Tulle.

How does one style tulle? There isn't really a "right" or "wrong" way. Only that I'd avoid something like flip-flop/thong sandals or sheepskin boots. There are two schools of thought in regards to tulle.

The first school of thought is to keep dreamy-type fashions dreamy. So if you're feeling beautiful and airy, stay with a stylish pair of pumps or sandals to compliment a tulle skirt. Try not to ruin the airy appeal with something overly tough. Don't overkill such airy appeal with something too edgy or anything that ruins the balance of the tulle skirt or dress. Keep it classy with a stylish blazer. The lowest you can go while still maintaining loveliness would be a pair of ballet flats and a denim jean jacket. Or if you insist, go for a hot motorcycle jacket to spice up the outfit while not going overboard.

The other school of thought in regards to tulle is to keep it girly, just add toughness. This is where I would use the expression "rose with thorns." In other words... break up the girly appeal of tulle by going with tough or rebellious style. So rather than chic pumps or sandals, go with a pair of Converses, combat boots, or any other edgy/rebellious shoes. The same top and outerwear options apply here too.

Those are just a few ideas on how to style tulle skirts and dresses.

Thanks for including a few of my posts, John! What I love most about tulle is the romantic feel of it. Some people think it's just for kids, but it reminds me of ballerina fashion, and I don't see that as particularly childish. I love tulle skirts/dresses best in soft pink, mint, taupe, grey, ivory, or black - mostly classic ballet colors. It's dreamy and fantastical, but it can work in real life with the right styling. That's the appeal for me!

Great post!
