Tulle goes two ways — either its the domain of ballerinas and bridesmaids, or found on dated emo kids from the Myspace era. With SS’17, tulle has become a staple on the RTW runways, returning to its feminine roots and distanced from the block-coloured pastel or black layers. Instead of mini-skirts, you’ll find tulle adapted into shorts, maxi skirts, or as a trim to add depth to a sleek dress. Labels like Dior, Dries Van Noten and Molly Godard sent models down the runway in updated versions of the voluminous fabric, marking tulle as a potential hit this spring.
If you’re gearing up for the coming season, here are six of our top tulle picks.
This MSGM tulle skirt is a fun, mod-inspired mid-length skirt with sequinned polka dots. Layer it over a white mini-skirt or, for the brave, a white bodysuit.
Givenchy’s SS’17 line focused on feminine lines paired with geometric silhouettes, and this tulle blazer epitomises that. Wear it unbuttoned, and you have a flowing, ankle-skimming outerwear that could even work for the office, or fasten it to provide the instant illusion of a dress.
