Two weeks ago, Janelle Monae was the OOTW in white tulle. This is not the OOTW but it is tulle. And it’s not annoying, which tulle can be. The main reason it’s not annoying is because it’s black. That’s the best way to reduce the annoyingness of tulle – you almost take away its identity. Because tulle is frothy. Black and frothy don’t usually go together. 

Notice too the accessories. Nothing dainty about the accessories. A chunky bracelet, thick earrings, staying away from delicate and pretty. And the black turtleneck on top? 

Excellent decision. Automatically brings down the princess ball gown vibe of tulle. Really, really into the styling here. It’s so Jennifer Garner in that it’s unfussy and comfortable. But also… with some edge?
