Tulip skirts totally remind me of Spring. After all, tulips do best in the brisk Spring weather. This look, modeled by Daiane Conterato, is from Marc Jacobs's Resort '09 collection. The bright blue tulip skirt is flirty and Fab just like the flower, but the $850 price tag is insanely steep for my wallet. It's good then that I found a cheaper skirt that has the same shape and sexy asymmetrical slit. I can now recreate this funky fresh look without going broke. Perfecto.
To see the look for less,
I am in lust with this Charlotte Russe Satin Tulip Skirt ($23); it looks identical to the MJ version, minus the crazy cost. The asymmetrical slit is the same, as are the contrast black trim and the elastic waistband. Both also have a silky sheen that makes them ultra luxurious. I can dress it up or down depending on the accompanying accessories.
