Tailored tulle: a not-so-obvious fashion trend for work
Tulle is one of the autumn winter trends for 2021. Only, tulle is not often seen on ready to wear looks. So definitely not in the workplace. These net-like fabrics have long ceased to be only part of wedding dresses and haute couture. Does this mean you cannot wear it to work? Definitely not. We reframed the tulle trend to make it appropriate to wear to work. With the tailored tulle trend, you can wear this haute couture trend also to the workplace.

How to wear tailored tulle
Styled in the right way, tulle skirts are also suitable for everyday work in the office. It does not necessarily have to be puffy and bulky. It can be feminine, bold and chic to make an outstanding first impression and stand out. As work wear, it depends on the occasion at work if and how you wear your tulle skirt.

When you work in a semi-formal or formal workplace, we suggest you combine your tulle skirt with a blouse and/or blazer and pay attention to the occasion you are wearing it.
