Tiptoe Through the Tulips

We all know flora colors and patterns spring into fashion every year.  This year, tulip-inspired shapes are showing up all over the place in forms of skirts, dresses and even tops.

Tulip skirts: I’m seeing them mostly in solids cause the pleating detail doesn’t need to be overwhelmed by a pattern.  Stella McCartney’s in a grey silk or a less pricy one from Banana Republic.  I also like this one from TopShop with buttons on the back and this one with more draping. Bluefly also has a few including this basic black one from Alvin Valley

Tulip dresses: TopShop scores again with this dress in pastel pink.  Try a slight twist on a basic black dress from Ann Taylor or a long halter from Marc Jacobs. I also like this cute juniors dress from Nordstroms.

Tulip blouses and Ts: Tulip shapes show up in sleeves from Urban Outfitters and Banana Republic.

These tulip patterns also caught my eye: I love this lovely abstract tulip patterned blouse or a more literal one from Marc Jacobs.
