Tis the Time for Tulle! How to Wear the ‘It Look’ this Holiday Season

Though once reserved for ballerinas, Carrie Bradshaw taught us that in fact tulle can be incorporated into everyday street fashion (and makes for a great dramatic running scene in Paris!) and now it is a staple of the holiday season. After all, it brings in the whimsicalness of The Nutcracker but with a little bit of punk rock. And did you see the amazing and everlasting Giambattista Valli couture tulle gown Jennifer Lopez wore to the premiere of her film Second Act (don’t worry, she changed for pizza eating.) It truly was a work of art.

JLo’s extravagant look may be a bit hard to pull off but here are a few ways to wear tulle this holiday season or any time of the year.

Wear it as a top

We usually think of a tulle skirt and dress but why not rock it on top like this simple and sexy black tee. Here is a more expensive option from Victoria Beckham.

Wear it with a leather jacket

Mix grace with edge by pairing a fluffy tulle skirt with a leather jacket like fashion bloggers. You could even pull this pleated tulle skirt off at work or these pastel midi skirts, both from Morning Lavender. Or go full on elegant with this one.

Wear it as a dress

If you love a good tulle skirt, then you will love a good tulle maxi dress. You can pair it with a fuzzy cardigan or blazer.
