The £29.99 Maxi Tulle Skirt that Carrie Bradshaw would own in every colour…

If I had to name one random fashion discovery in 2021 as my favourite, it has to be this tulle maxi skirt {aflink}. I found it while randomly browsing looking for something entirely different and took a chance ordering it. I say “took a chance” because the price tag of £29.99 had me very suspicious, plus the imagery used to sell the skirt wasn’t entirely desirable, and that’s being kind. I’ve seen this exact style of skirt on many runways, several times on Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City and endlessly in Vogue editorials. So, I ordered one in white and one in black and thought to myself, “worst case scenario I have two skirts for some interesting halloween costumes.”

Thankfully they arrived and I was very impressed. They both came with a rather funky tie in very cheap fabric which immediately went in a donation box. I’ve told you once and I’ll tell you until I’m dead to the internet… the fastest way to make any garment look “expensive” is to replace the belt it came with with a nice leather belt that’s already in your closet. Build your belt collection (more to come on that next week).

And yes, I am very proud to say I’ve been out and about in Hampshire and London wearing this skirt like it was just another day. No big deal. Because yes, I do, in some way, shape of form, believe I am the 6’2 real life Carrie Bradshaw. You know what? I already stick out like a sore thumb. Might as well really leave an impression. I’m pretty sure the folks in Hampshire wondered why I was dressed like a winter bride to grab a pint of milk. But, hey ho, right?

If you’re looking for something with a tad more colour, feast your eyes on the selection on offer.

There are a few colours I would steer clear of, but I’m open to being pleasantly surprised if you can make them work. I want someone to rock the lime green with a chunky brown belt and a grey cropped tea! Maybe me for fashion week? Watch this space.

    I love that skirt, I’m just trying to think of the right occasion to wear it and what colour to order.

    Thank you for sharing this.
