If you’re already pumped for skirt season, allow us introduce one style that you must put on your spring shopping list: the tulle skirt (if you haven’t already been lusting after one since Anthropologie released this beauty).

It’s currently having a major street style moment, turning ordinary outfits into a stand-out It-girl ensembles. Maybe we dream of being the ultimate care-free Manic Pixie Dream Girl (Zooey Deschanel probably owns hundreds of these babies), or perhaps we enjoy the throwback to the simpler days of our youth. But within these layers of tulle lies a tricky secret–how to actually wear a tulle skirt without looking like an oversized child. Sarah Jessica Parker famously and single-handedly made this look legit, so it’s not impossible. So if you’re brave enough to throw on a tutu, here are five easy rules to follow to look more like Carrie Bradshaw and less like Sophia Grace.

1. Wear Grown-Up Accessories.

A serious necklace takes this look the extra mile. Try something chunky and edgy to balance out the sweetness of the skirt.

2. Treat It Like It’s Just Another Skirt.

Don’t get tripped up by the skirt’s frou-frou factor. You may be inclined to “dress up” the rest of your outfit, but don’t. Instead, keep the rest of your look low-key. Try a trendy sweatshirt or a leather jacket.

3. Don’t Wear Pink.

Sad, right? But it must be said. The fluffier the skirt, the more low-key the color should be (read: white, tan). Pale pink can work, but lose some of the volume if you opt for a rosier hue.

4. Experiment With Your Shoes.

Heels will obviously look nice, but don’t be afraid to try studded flats or even boots. Again, you want to contrast the femininity of the skirt with tougher pieces.
