Spring's 10 Best Tulip Skirts from $13 to $69

Spring Fashion 2009 Best Tulip Skirt Trend on a Budget

Yesterday I tracked down the season's best denim jackets, and today I'm presenting some of the best tulip skirts around, ranging in price from just $12.80 to $69. As seen on the runways of Lanvin and Tracy Reese, the tulip skirt is a fresh silhouette that will add new life to your warm weather wardrobe. As the name suggests, a tulip skirt has more fabric around the waistline and a close-fitting hemline, similar to an inverted tulip flower. If you're worried about drawing attention to the hip area, fear not: It's all about finding the right length of tulip skirt and balancing it out with the right top (experimentation is key). Go for a high-waist to create a glorious hourglass silhouette. If you've got straight hips, the tulip skirt is a nice way to add some instant curves (which is what I'm banking on). Personally, I think Banana Republic presents the perfect tulip skirt - I love how they've styled it with a short-sleeve scoopneck sweater, platform sandals and a statement necklace. Think you'll be trying this trend?
