Tulle Skirts Bring Ballerina Inspired Style To The Spring Catwalks

When we think of the tutu, images of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City prancing about in her iconic frilly skirt instantly come to mind. However, even if you’re not a famous New York City trendsetter like Sarah Jessica Parker’s legendary character from the hit 1990s HBO show, you can always find your inspiration on this season’s runways. For Spring 2018, the tulle skirt is back in style, and brings with it plenty of ballerina vibes. Whether you plan to dance the night away or simply dress up your casual denim or leather, the tutu just might be a new look to embrace now. Turn to the hottest catwalks, and follow these tips for rocking the trend just like a model.

Christian Dior

At Christian Dior, black and red made an appearance in the form of a strapless tulle frock with a playful short hemline. With a sheer skirt and an oversized heart motif on the bodice, this little black dress certainly received an update from the classic LBD silhouette. Paired with knee-high black lace up sandals, this tutu skirt managed to combine a rebellious edge with ladylike style.

Fausto Puglisi

On the Fausto Puglisi catwalk, a statement-making black and white tutu was the order of the day. If you truly want to feel like a ballet dance for a dramatic evening look, try drawing your cues from this ensemble. The spaghetti straps and dainty embellished bodice help to polish off the overall design, along with a pair of studded, faux floral-adorned leather flats.


At Moschino, a short black ruffled tutu was paired with mesh tights and white leather over-the-knee boots, for a graceful twist on Gothic style. With a white leather bomber, dangling chain necklaces and a miniature handbag, this look is ideal for a night on the town.
