When it comes to tulle skirts, I feel like people automatically default to the ballerina look; a black top, pink tutu skirt and ballet flats.

Or, they think of Carrie Bradshaw.

Really though, there are sooooo many different ways you can style a tulle skirt! The overall look can be very chic and fashion-forward.

And, they can go from a formal event to a casual date outfit in a jiff, all depending on how you style them!


Bodysuit with Tulle Skirt


A really simple way to style a tulle skirt is with a bodysuit. In fact, it’s one of the best ways to wear a tulle skirt.

Bodysuits are still really on trend and since they’re more figure-hugging, they really balance out the look since tulle skirts are fairly voluminous.

From sleeveless bodysuits to longsleeve, pretty much anything goes with this type of top with a tulle skirt.

I paired this with my favorite black heels-my Dior J’Adior slingback heels.

Try a Knit Sweater with a Tulle Skirt

This outfit was worn as a Valentine’s Day outfit idea but of course, it totally works as a pretty winter outfit idea.

A knit sweater with a tulle skirt is a nice contrast of fabrics. It’s also a great way to stay warm when wearing a tulle skirt in the winter months!

What NOT to Wear with a Tulle Skirt

As you can see, there are so many different outfits you can make with a tulle skirt. So is there anything you SHOULDN’T wear with a tulle skirt?

Honestly, nearly anything goes!

One outfit that comes to mind that has always been popular is wearing a denim jacket or chambray top with a tulle skirt.

This look is a bit outdated in 2023, but you can definitely still rock it if you love it.

A plaid shirt or flannel shirt is another popular way to style a tulle skirt in the fall.

I’m not going to tell you NOT to do this, I’m just personally not a fan of plaid or flannel and this look also feels outdated for 2023 and beyond.
