Tulip Skirts, which feature gathers at the waistline and a more fitted hem, are great for women who are looking to create the illusion of hips. Boyish shaped women, and women who have a curvier top half - rejoice! In order to create the most figure flattering look, we love a small-over-big silhouette for the Tulip Skirt. Here’s how to wear a Tulip Skirt:
1. Start with a small over big silhouette - a fitted tank over the bigger tulip skirt. We love how the two blues work together, as well as how the ruffles on the tank echo the soft gathers on the skirt.
2. Layer on a cropped sweater. We love the structured feel of this sweater, which contrasts with the floaty skirt. The mustard color also contrasts nicely with the shades of blue in the top and the skirt.
3. Finish off the outfit with a nice clutch handbag and a pair of low heels.
