Many stylistas and fashion bloggers copied the famous tutu skirt look with their own interpretation. Here are some tips to help you guided when you´re inspired to wear this fabulous skirt.
Tips in Wearing Tutu Skirt
- The rule of balance. If your tutu skirt is cute (decorated with stones or pearls) but has a lot of volume in it, create balance by teaming it with a sweater preferably in pastel colors. To make it look like straight from a fairy tale, add a whimsical necklace and clutch. Even your nail polish can add details too. Clearly, wearing tutu skirt with a sweater doesn´t work for summer, but it´s great for spring or fall.
- The lady-like tiered. What Carrie Bradshaw wore was a white tiered tutu skirt. This style of skirt is fitted in the waist and creates gorgeous shapes down the hips. To top your curves, wear it with a sleeveless fitted top in girly colors such as light pink, cream, or mint, and finish with feminine strappy heels.
- The ruffled tutu skirt.If you find a gorgeous ruffled tutu skirt, make sure to have it in a sweet yet neutral color such as beige, cream, or nude. This will make it perfect to go with a printed, fitted, sleeveless top. Complete the look with a pair of metallic, pointed toe pumps for a very whimsical ensemble.
- Choose the right tutu skirt. It´s easy to look like a you need a pair of poom pooms and cheer for your fave basketball team or join your primary school´s dance troop. In short, it´s easy to look childish in a tutu skirt, unless you choose the right one with simple cut, reasonable length and decorations.
