Tulips

I love tulip skirts, I have a few in my box of clothes that I will wear again in a few long months' time {I'm not complaining, I'm over the moon about becoming a mama but I've been wearing the same mat clothes for a while now} and this outfit from BR is just a perfect way to wear a fabulous tulip skirt- those shoes are great too, like an affordable version of a Miu Miu or Dries Van Norten platform.

what is the trick to wearing a tulip skirt without looking all hippy and wide????

Honestly, very carefully. I think that the number one thing is to pick your tulip skirt based on waistband, pleats and pocket placement. If any of these things is not well done, then you will porbbaly look all hippy and wide - even though you are not dear Tara - and then secondly, you have to wear your tulip skirt with confidence. If you are constantyl fussing about it, of course you'll look like a douche.

I also find that tulip skirts look better with heels than flats, but a chunkier one than a super spiky stiletto. The one in the picture shows a good play on proportions and balance...
