It’s Google search data official: we’re falling madly for tulle skirts. The internet giant released its fashion trends data this week, with one item making a stand out debut in the inaugural report. Apparently we all want to pay tribute to Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic tutu in the opening credits of Sex and the City. Yes, while a lot of Carrie’s looks have been relegated to the ?It was the noughties!? bin, the tulle has reigned triumphant. In fact, searching ?Carrie Bradshaw skirt? is a thing an awful lot of people doing. Even DIY videos are a booming YouTube business.
If you’re not exactly a successful crafter, you may want to cast your gaze over these five ballet inspired skirts we found that you could secure with a few clicks.
This Rochas skirt verges on the pretty gothic end of the tulle spectrum. It was crafted in Italia, and the differently textured layers lend it a more architectural structure than most.
This pale pink skirt from Ted Baker plays it safe, which is perfect if you want something pretty for the office. It has a smattering of embellishment making it perfect for teaming with a basic white top.
We love this smoky grey tutu from Chicwish. The colour and lining also means an underwear outline showing up in photos is not a problem.
This Needle & Thread midi is a classic buy. High-waisted and a colour that will go with any combo, this is a summer staple you have to add-to-basket and proceed-to-checkout with.
If you’re looking for something with Cirque de Soliel pep and shape, this ASOS number is fun and flirty. A showstopper of a skirt if ever there was one.
And if the bank account is being a miserable miser, you could try make a tulle skirt…
