Who is suitable and with what to wear
A tulip skirt or balloon is a broad model, the top and bottom of which is assembled. The belt of the skirt wraps around the female waist, loosening the grip on the hips, and the bottom in the classic cut converges in the knee area, accentuating attention to the legs.
The skirt is perfect for all types of figures. It can be combined with many variants of outerwear. But do not choose such a fashion skirt for girls with very large shapes. A skirt is appropriate for a small excess weight in the hips, but here, with obvious problems, this zone will only visually increase this style.
The most advantageous skirt emphasizes the beauty of tall and slender ladies. But miniature women of small height are recommended to combine such a skirt with shoes or sandals with high heels. In this case, it is recommended to choose the classical length of the skirt - just above the knee, in order to visually increase the length of the legs.
For moderately complete figures skirt of flowing fabrics - silk, crepe, satin. Large decor elements should be located at the level of the hips.
Heavy heavy fabrics that are added to create a volume, must also be draped at the hip level, while it is necessary that they do not "sit" tightly, but flow slightly.
Initially, the style was conceived in the form of a vase, and sewing was from dense fabrics( taffeta, wool).Modern fashion allows you to choose for yourself a suitable model in the form of an unblown flower bud or blooming tulip. The color solution can be varied - small drawings, floral prints or monophonic material of any color. The only exception is a large pattern of bright colors - a similar variant will cross out all the advantages of this style and visually deprive the skirt-tulip shape.
Now different fabrics are used, not only dense. The summer version of the skirt can be made of soft silk, chiffon, satin, translucent satin, that is, light and flowing materials. For warm options, jeans, velveteen, tweed and wool are now popular.
It is not difficult to find the right addition to this wardrobe item. The skirt-tulip assumes the addition as fitting upper things. You can choose a turtleneck, various fitted blouses, which can be tucked under a skirt, T-shirts, blouses and so on. An interesting option would be put over a turtleneck or blouse bolero.
In the cold season, the skirt-tulip can be combined with a warm sweater or waistcoat made of dense fabric.
