Style Obsession: The Tulle Skirt

The latest obsession has found fashion bloggers everywhere raiding their 5 year old nieces wardrobe or the local bridal exchange co-op for the latest in ‘now’ piece: the Tulle Skirt. I am no different, I am absolutely in love with this statement look. Although I wasn’t a girlie-girl in my youth, preferring trucks over tulle, I am embracing feminine and fabulous in my twenties.

Inspired by the infamous Carrie Bradshaw, known for pushing boundaries and sporting looks that I could only ever dream to wear. One of the most well known outfits in the entire Sex and the City series mainly due to it appearing in the opening credits of the show.

Love Carrie Bradshaw’s Iconic Tulle Skirt

However years later in the Sex and the City movie, Carrie and the girls allow us a glimpse down fashion-memory lane via Carrie’s wardrobe and all agree the tulle skirt is the piece to ‘TAKE’. Even though the show that taught so many girls, like myself, to love and experiment with fashion that moment has been cemented in fashionistas everywhere that one day we will be able to rock a Tulle skirt ‘almost’ as well as Carrie. Well that was the dream anyway…

Fast-forward 10 years and here I am, trawling eBay trying to track down the perfect Tulle skirt to add to my ever expanding list of wardrobe essentials. Any assistance will be welcomed with open arms… I am not afraid to ask a fellow fashion-lover to ‘hook a sister up!’

For me the Tulle skirt is to be paired with simple pieces and let the skirt itself do its job and just wow people! I am becoming slightly more feminine as I get older but I still love a touch of tough or tomboy. This means think tucked in chambray shirts (another wardrobe essential that won’t be going anywhere soon), black leather jackets or track-top style material (sounds crazy but trust me… It works).

Feminine and flirtatious, the Tulle Skirt allows you to tap into your inner child, or bride-to-be, in a way that will make you want to wear it almost everyday. This look is a definite show stopper!

We love: Slogan Tees

If you think you have got something worth saying? It’s time to put it on a t-shirt.

We love: Slogan Tee. Photo via The Iconic

The slogan-print tee is the latest and greatest way to express yourself. Over the past few weeks, I have started to acquire slogan tees at an absurd rate, in every kind of style and with expressions that sometimes don’t make any sense. But by simply adding a touch of text to the front of your tee, you’re instantly on trend for this season. My love of the slogan tee stems from the fact that it creates a carefree attitude; working with almost any outfit, from the beach to the bar, to make a statement.

Whether you prefer your labels to do the talking, or to be a little cheeky or bold there is something for everyone. Here are a couple of my favourites from my wardrobe and how to add to this seasons look.
