Tulle Clothing is a great reasonably priced clothing line that features adorable new vintage style or vintage inspired pieces.  They are perhaps best known for their dresses and jackets which are a great blend of vintage style and modern fashion trends. For those of you who are learning about Tulle for the first time, Tulle’s clothing line launched in 1999 with a focus on jackets and sweaters and a goal of designing vintage inspired modern clothing.  Tulle has now expanded into a wide selection of dresses, tops and even accessories.  Tulle describes their design formula as follows: “Our formula is simple: we soak up our love of vintage fashion, mix it up with vintage and modern silhouettes, and have fun playing with classic and contemporary prints to create a distinctive brand that is both feminine and sweet. Perfect for a day out on the town that can easily be carried into the evening.”  We recently posted about a few of our favorite Tulle Jackets, so today we are going to highlight a few of our favorite Tulle pieces other than jackets.

Tulle Cropped Floral Cardigan

The Polka Dot Long Sleeve Wrap Dress is perfect for that special occasion and is a classic vintage style dress.  The dress features a v neckline with an accent ruffle on each side of the v around the neck.  The dress features an empire waist with a smocked elastic waistband.  The long sleeves are sheer giving it an added vintage style.  The pattern is an ivory color contrasted with black polka dots.  The skirt flares and hits several inches above the knee.  This dress looks great styled with heels or even with a pair of boots.

Spring is right around the corner and Tulle’s Cropped Floral Cardigan is the perfect spring cardigan with its adorable floral pattern contrasted by the ivory base color and black polka dots.  The cardigan features 3/4 length sleeves and a cropped length that hits a few inches above the waist and with accent pearl shaped black buttons down the front.  The cardigan is casual enough that it can certainly be worn with just a t shirt and jeans, but it also pairs well with high waist skirts/pants which are also a current fashion trend.  This cardigan also looks great over a solid black dress year round. We like to pair it with Tulle’s Knee Length Pencil Skirt in black as well.

Next consider the Button Shirt Dress by Tulle.  This dress in the perfect shade of red, features a faux tie waist that ties in front to give it an added feminine style touch.  The dress features a pocket for show on the lapel on one side of the dress and features matching buttons down the center of the dress and on the sleeves which are rolled up and secured with a loop on the sleeve.  This dress hits just above the knee and looks great with boots and leggings.  The 3/4 length sleeves when rolled up give it a great versatility year round.

As you can see, you can find great cardigans, dresses and jackets made by Tulle.  Their pieces all have great vintage style elements and adorable feminine style.  Best of all, Tulle’s pieces are all reasonably priced and feature great wearable fabrics.  It really is hard to go wrong with any of their great pieces.  This is just sampling of some of our favorite Tulle pieces.  What are some of yours?

V Neck Dresses

We love v neck tops and dresses and this season there are a number of great v neck dresses in a variety of different styles and patterns.  If you’re looking for a frilly feminine dress then consider either the Abigail Dress or the Dita Ruffle dress or even the Aggie dress all by designer Ella Moss.  These dresses all feature v neck lines accented by ruffles around the neckline.  The Abigail dress features a silk fabric and is the dressiest of the three dresses.  With buttons down the center and a tie around the waist, this dress is an absolute show stopper.   The Dita and Aggie dresses are really sister dresses with one featuring polka dots and the other stripes.  They each feature a ruffle around the neckline and an empire waist.  Both the Dita and Aggie dresses are made of supima cotton and modal fabric and super soft and comfortable.

For more V Neck dress options consider a few alternatives from designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  Whether it is the patterned Chapel dress featuring a Spanish Tile pattern on a fitted knee length dress or the Berta wide V Neck with a tie around the waist Velvet has a variety of great V Neck Dresses.  One of the latest new arrivals that features a narrow v neck is the Sammy Long Sleeve Belted Dress.  This dress features a split v neck and a white and green pattern.  The Sammy dress is an adorable v neck dress that is the sister to the Rhonia V Neck Dress with a wide tank v neck and a flared skirt at the waist. If you are looking for something a touch more casual consider the Hunter Maldives Striped short sleeve v neck dress.  This dress can easily double as a tunic top with leggings and is the perfect summer shirt dress.  With a wide v neck and navy trim around the slightly off center neckline, this dress is one of our summer must haves.

To round out some of our favorite v neck dresses and show that literally just about every designer has great v neck dresses in their lines, consider the wrap dress by Sweet Pea by designer Stacy Frati.  The Wrap Dress is gathered at the waist and features a wide v neckline.  Available in basic black, this dress is really a classic and sophisticated look.

As you can see there are so many different varieties of v neck dresses.  The dresses we mentioned are really on the tip of the iceberg and depending on the occasion or reason for your search for a great v neck dress, you can easily find a great v neck dress for literally any occasion and they are not just in your basic jersey cottons.  While we always are on the lookout for dresses that are stylish and comfortable, you can also easily find dressier v neck dress options like the Abigail dress or many others as great options for that signature v neckline.
