Tulips in the Springtime
I love tulips.Â Their simple shape – a subtle curve where the petals come together – is so elegant, not to mention the variations of bright colors.Â And I like skirts, too (who doesn’t?).Â When the two are combined, we’re really getting somewhere.Â
A definition of the tulip skirt:Â
“A tulip skirt looks like an inverted version of its namesake. The fabric cinches the waistline, relaxes around the hips and buttocks and tapers to hug the legs at the hemline. It is a classic skirt style that can be worn by many, of varied size and shape. Follow a few simple steps to blossom in a tulip skirt.”

Some of my favorite picks, priciest to cheapest.
Vionnet printed silk tulip skirt, Net-a-Porter, $1745.Â Ouch.
AÂ simple detail adds a big impact, in the way the folds come together in the front to show just a hint of extra leg.Â Paired with a sophisticatedÂ black top, it’s unstoppable.Â
Helmut Lang stretch silk cellophane print tulip skirt, Net-a-Porter, $345.Â I love this print and the way it looks with the boots.Â Sexyyyyyyyyy.Â Â Â
Leave it to McQueen to create the most awe-inspiring design of the bunch, and “only” $315 at Ssense.Â A steal compared to the Vionnet version:
Wow, whatÂ a deal!Â I think I’m going to buy this outfit right now… The skirt is only $29 at Newport News!
Finally, Forever 21 comes in handy in a pinch with a dose of femininity at only $17.80:
