If you’re like me, you LOVE elegant, ballerina-inspired tulle skirts and have been pinning images of them since the holidays. Now summer is here and you’re wondering what on earth to do with your precious tulle skirt. Don’t resign it to storage just yet, my friend! With a few strategic accessory choices, you can rock your favorite tulle number in the warmer months as well.

Thanks to She Traveled, I finally got my hands on a beautiful tulle skirt and I intend to wear it often over the next few months. Read on for my full review and tips for rocking tulle in the summer.

About the Company

This my second time working with the sweet ladies at She Traveled, and they haven’t let me down yet. As  shared in my last review, She Traveled started is a modest clothing line and online mall dedicated to helping women of all faiths find modest clothing “that is of the highest quality, durability, and comfort for the best price.” The women at She Traveled aim to serve women who seek to serve the Lord in all they do – including how they dress.

Fit

Full disclosure: this skirt comes in a MIDI length, which measures 28” from the waistband. Since the length was a bit too long for my petite frame, I hemmed it to about knee length. Other than the length, there were no fit issues with this skirt. Per She Traveled’s recommendation, I sized up and went for the medium. The waistband, which measures 28”, fits perfectly and isn’t too snug on my 29” waist.

Quality

This skirt lives up to the good quality I’ve come to expect from She Traveled. I love that it comes with modest knee-length lining (don’t you just hate when skirts have lining that’s too short?!). The tulle netting is voluminous and flowy, just the way I like it. I’ve seen tulle skirts before that have a thin, lifeless layer of netting, and I steer clear of those skirts because they look cheap. The netting is 100% polyester, but don’t let that scare you.

Price

At $72.50 a pop, this skirt is not cheap. But there’s great news for you, my friends! The kind folks at She traveled have set up a special discount code for my readers! You can use code TULLE to get 25% off your order at She Traveled, making this skirt $54. 😉

How to Wear It

Due to their fussiness and frills, tulle skirts are often labeled holiday skirts. But I’m a huge proponent of making my seasonal pieces work for ALL seasons. Thankfully styling tulle skirts for summer is super easy – all you need is a chambray shirt and your favorite pair of sandals. I highly recommend the fringed sandals from JustFab which are on trend and super affordable).

You can also wear your tulle skirt with a tee (preferably knotted at the waist) and fresh white sneakers for a sporty take on this holiday classic. Or, you can rock it with a cropped denim jacket and lace-up sandals. If you pair your tulle skirt with lightweight fabrics and summer-ready accessories, the possibilities are endless!

What do any think ladies? Does anyone else like to rock tulle in the summer?!

    Ohhh…I’m so glad I read this! I have a skirt like yours (it’s not exactly tulle, but it’s the skirt from a dress my mom had from the 1950’s) and I’ve worn it quite a few times! But I may actually shorten it like you did!
    What a wonderful suggestion!
    Mine is a bright blue, so i think my white washed chambray shirt might work like this!!
    Love your entire ensemble!!

    I think this is super cute! I love tulle skirts, even though I don’t have one of my own yet. But I would most definitely wear one all year long! I love the chambray with it!
