The Rise of the Tulip Skirt

Once upon a time, there was a princess who wished for a special skirt, the one that would fit, accentuate and give a touch of flair to any figure.

She danced, she walked the runway, she searched all over town…

Little did she know that the inspiration is right under her nose. And *poof* there came the rise of the Tulip skirt.

Tulip Skirt made its debut in fall 2008 but had only full bloomed in stores and runway this year. It is fast becoming a popular choice for ladies  who lust after that extra oomph on their hips and behind. It is slightly similar to the bubble skirt and pencil skirt except that it is wider in the hips and fitted at the waist and bottom. Undeniably patterned after the form of a beautiful tulip.

It is a perfect alternative for office wear and the best choice in romanticizing that old ensemble. Put those sexy heels at work with some stylish stillettos or add some punk with gladiator shoes or peep-toes.

There are many variations of the tulip skirt, and probably the most sought after now are those bright colored and mini ones like Rihanna wore. It only spells fun and flirty, what do you say?
