Tulip dresses are very popular and attractive. The name of the style is connected with the great similarity of the dress with the tulip flower, which is turned upside down.

At the waist the tulip dresses are narrow, in the upper thigh area the skirt of such dresses widens, and to the hem it narrows. To add volume to the skirt, it is either gathered in pleats at the waist, or supplemented with various elements and inserts.

Dresses of this style can serve as an everyday outfit, and clothing for the celebration. They help to hide the fullness of the hips and visually lengthen the legs, as well as to focus on the waist.

Who is suitable?

The tulip dress is associated with spring, tenderness and youth, so it is more often chosen by young girls. It looks equally good both on a young lady with excessive thinness, and on a girl with magnificent forms.

Without a doubt, the best style "tulip" will look at women, whose figure resembles a rectangle and an hourglass, especially in the presence of slender legs.

  • The volumetric skirt helps to make the “inverted triangle” shape more harmonious.
  • A girl with a “triangle” silhouette should choose a model that has voluminous sleeves or drapery around the neckline.
  • Fragile girls will look best in a dress that has an open top.
  • If the girl has an apple shape, a tulip dress will be an inappropriate choice for her.

Types of cuts

The most popular neckline that is found in a tulip dress is V-shaped. In some models, it is formed due to the presence of smell. Other common cutouts in dresses of this style are oval and round. Also there are models with a rectangular neckline.


For sewing summer models of tulip dresses, chintz, chiffon, and cotton fabric are used.

Knitwear or wool is used for casual dresses that are worn in cool weather. If the outfit is intended for celebration, velvet, brocade, satin, silk and other expensive fabrics are used to make it.

With sleeves

The length of the sleeves in a tulip dress can be different. There are models with both long sleeves and shorter sleeves. In this case, there can be both narrow sleeves and puff sleeves. Dresses of such style with ruffles on shoulders are very popular.

Products with wide or thin straps are in high demand. There are also models of dresses in which the shoulders remain completely bare.

With pockets

Some models of tulip dress have internal side pockets. These elements help add volume to the hips.

Popular colors

The black

A black tulip dress is a successful alternative to a black sheath dress. This outfit is strict enough to be used as clothing in the office.

If rhinestones or sequins are used in the decoration of a black tulip dress, this model can be worn at the club or at a party. The same applies to models with a mini length.

Those who want to draw attention to the slim waist, you can pick up a contrasting belt to the laconic black along with this style. The monochromatic black outfit of the “tulip” style with a bright belt, for example, of a scarlet or golden color, looks beautiful.


The blue gamma is presented in tulip dresses in various shades - from soft blue to dark denim and indigo. Dark blue outfits of the "tulip" style are slim and help to hide full hips.The bodice of such dresses is often represented by a V-neckline.

A brown leather strap or a black belt is well-suited to a blue tulip dress.


White tulip dresses look gentle and feminine, so they can serve as a beautiful wedding dress.

To exclude the association with wedding dresses, in white dresses of such a style there may be inserts of other colors, for example, black trim on the hem and neckline. Also, a white tulip dress can be worn with a bright belt.


Pastel shades help to get a gentle look. Tulip dresses of this color are often used as casual clothes, and if you add them with interesting accessories, you get a romantic look. Best of all, a brown or black belt will suit the beige dress of this style.


A bright red tulip-style dress is worn on a romantic date, prom or other celebration.

If such a dress has a multi-layered skirt, the model will look airy. Satin red tulip dress with thin straps will be a good choice for a party or other important event.


The length of the skirt of the dress-tulip is selected in accordance with growth. The lower the girl, the shorter the model she can afford. However, this requires the ideal shape of the legs.


Long tulip dresses usually have an ankle length to the middle. They are represented mainly by evening dresses from expensive fabrics with a beautiful finish. The most common are black and red and white long dresses of this style.


Dresses with a length slightly below the knees look perfect on tall girls. They are often discreet casual dress options with sleeves of different lengths.


Short tulip dresses are the most common and sought after fashionistas. They are chosen for both daily wear and as an outfit. Note that dresses that are slightly longer than the knee are best for girls of average height. Also, a dress with a mini tulip skirt should be worn by short ladies.

Is the style suitable for full?

The tulip dress looks quite attractive on girls with curvaceous, especially if you wear high-heeled shoes with this outfit. The best choice for obese women will be a model with a smell. Also a good option for overweight would be a tulip dress with a medium or long sleeve.

What to wear?

Wear a tulip dress with a short jacket or jacket that does not cover the hips.

One of the most successful additions is a belt or strap, the color of which will contrast with the tone of the dress. Its thickness is selected taking into account the girl's waist - the owner of a thin waist can use a wide belt, and if you want to visually make the waist more thin, you should choose a belt of smaller thickness.


Graceful earrings, bracelets and thin chains will be suitable jewelry to a side of such style. You can add them with a scarf and a bag with a thin belt or a small clutch.


Best of all, shoes that have heels fit the tulip style dress. Moreover, the longer the dress, the thinner and higher the heel on the shoes should be. For a dress with an average length of dense fabric, high-heel boots are a good choice.

    This style adds a lot of volume. It is better to buy a non-swelling fabric, because it is wrinkled all the time because of folds.
