At the mention of tulle, what comes to mind are ballerinas and frilly ball gowns in pink. But as more designers bring in tulle for their fall collections, we see the reinvention of this fabric. While tulle was used for princess dresses before, its resurgence now gives it a function more fit for the streets and not just in the world of haute couture. It’s a layering tool that will give that extra boost to any drab and bland outfit. Check out five ways you can wear tulle on a daily basis below:


Skip the bomber jacket and layer on a sheer top for a more casual look. You can wear this straight out of the gym or for those sporty hubadera days.
