Girly Style, All Grown Up

April 27, 2015

Los Angeles, CA


For a spring look that’s ultra-femme, try working a swishy tulle midi skirt into your wardrobe.  Set aside for dance recitals and Carrie Bradshaw highlight reels, this grown-up tutu skirt is making a serious comeback this season and while it’s not the easiest number to pull off, I’m going to show you just what you need to make it work. 

Because it’s already so girly,  try pairing  it with a more basic, textured top like this slouchy chambray Cloth & Stone button-up I found at Marshalls. For finishing touches, I’d stay away from delicate, floral or whimsical pieces.  You’ll notice I went with chunkier booties instead of pointy-toed flats and a bold statement necklace instead of dainty layering necklaces.  It creates contrast and allows you to achieve a more polished, adult feel. 

That being said, with a piece this lovely,  it's impossible not to end up with a look that’s perfectly ladylike.
