Spice Up Winter Dressing: Layering Tulle Skirt Over Jeans

20 February 2018

I tried my best to dress more practically during my recent winter trip by putting comfort before style but nobody says I have to completely disregard the latter, amiright?

    When I think "winter", skirts are not the first thing that comes to mind but I like the idea of layering tons of thermal layer under a skirt (as I am wont to do) instead of wearing my usual trusty jeans. But hey, how about placing a see-through skirt on top of your jeans?
    (With thermal leggings sneakily hidden underneath those jeans still, of course.)

      Wearing skirt over pants isn't exactly the most groundbreaking style trick but has recently become a tried and tested one — well, not by me, though; I might be used to layering tulle/mesh dresses over regular outfits to spice them up (like this romantic black tulle and peach mesh dresses) but never with skirts. Only because I haven't found a tulle skirt meant for me until I met this little red thayng in one of the H&Ms in Myeongdong in Seoul earlier this month.

      PS: I linked the exact skirt in the ShopStyle widget at the bottom! (I cut out the lining myself with scissors fyi.)

          This was taken the night after Snow Day so all the snow on the ground was mushed up and a little less white, but thankfully the temperature had risen up just a tiny little bit to allow me to wear my favourite (and generally less toasty warm) checkered houndstooth coat.

          PS: The very same coat layered under the puffer jacket at Nami Island!

          Just imagine this outfit without the red skirt...now that would have been a much less interesting outfit, wouldn't it?

          1. Such clever styling babe! Well done!


          2. I think you've broken a barrier here Liyana! This is a real cutting edge winter look. Sometimes it's the least experienced folks (you in winter weather) who come up with the most creative and out of the box,fun ideas to shake things up. I especially like the RED tulle. Cool my young friend! Very cool! Love, Jude

            1. Thank you Judy! <3 I'm glad you approve this whole getup! It's so RED, right? I like the skirt a whole lot, too, and look forward to thinking how to style it in my hot and humid country.

          3. I have always witnessed the sheer skirt over pants that the fashion peeps do and now I get to see your take. I must say I am utterly smitten especially that the tulle skirt is in eye-popping red! I don't think I have seen that a lot. You always look super comfortable in every set that you wear, no matter if it's a comfort-oriented getup or one that's so fashiony. I love your vibe and general sassy energy. So fire! And you made that skirt amazing wearing it over those jeans and cutting off the lining. I have yet to do wear any sheer skirts over anything and with the weather here being strongly toasty, it'll be a while before I wear one. Love this look of yours and the cute kitty cat beanie! BTW: The lip color you're wearing looks like the PUPA one I wore. #GASP I updated the post with a picture of me wearing the lipstick if you wanna see :D

            1. Despite the (somewhat) business of this entire outfit, I AM actually comfortable in it, so it's great that that's coming through in my photos! I am happy that you like it, and that you are into the skirt as much as I am. I think you would look great in the red skirt - WITH the lining intact, so that it would still be appropriate for Malaysia's weather. I know you're a cat lady so no surprise that you think my beanie is cute!

              PS: I saw your lippie photos, GREAT JOB. I think your Pupa lipstick has more purple / blue than mine, but yes they do look pretty similar! LOVE the lipstick on you.
              PPS: I accidentally scrolled all the way to the bottom when looking at your Pupa post and saw a post on Wayne Goss you wrote back in 2009, which means you started being his fan wayyy earlier than I did!
