This week I am sharing a slightly racier outfit to my usual ones but I hope you guys like it! My mum actually gave me the skirt, but I have never had a chance to wear it. So, given that I was scratching my head over what to wear for a friend's party I thought why not try out this skirt.
Apart from not really having an occasion to wear this skirt, another reason for never wearing it was because I just didn't know how to style it. Also, for some reason, I thought the tulle material reminded me of witches haha. Very silly I know, so I thought this would be a good opportunity for me to go out of my comfort zone, and try to think of the positives in order to have the inspiration to put together an outfit.
Thinking of the positives, I really like how the skirt isn't as full as normal tulle skirts, as then there's less material to deal with and also you can see the mini skirt underneath. If this were a sold coloured skirt, I think it would probably drown my petite frame, but together with the uneven hem and minimal tulle layering it doesn't have that effect.
It is a well known styling tip that wearing things high on your waist elongates your legs, and as a petite, a tip like that is just what I need. Luckily the waist band on the skirt was small enough to stay on my waist but had enough elastic to not suffocate me :p By pairing it with a simple white caged bralette I look 10000ft taller. Okay, that's a major exaggeration but I did feel so much taller. Also, by placing the skirt on the narrowest part of my midriff it looks like I have abs haha. I know the bralette isn't the most creative option, but because there was so much going on with the skirt, I thought it was best to keep the top bit simple :)
I paired this outfit with my trusty black clutch, although I think a silver sparkly one would look even better. I need to get myself one of those :p
The one thing I regret about this outfit is actually the bralette. In the sense that I wish I hadn't purchased it. It's from Brandy Melville and cost £15...I know I know ridiculous right? I know it's not extortionate but as an avid bargain hunter I feel cheated especially as I found a cheaper one on Amazon for £6...Moral of the story is never make an impulsive purchase:p
Clutch: Forever 21
I hope you guys enjoyed this little outfit inspiration. I'm not sure whether I'll ever get over my 'fear' of this skirt reminding me of witches (haha) but at least I gave this a go! How would you style a black tulle skirt? I would love to hear your thoughts :)
Enjoy your long weekend! Take care and speak soon.
