How To Wear A Tutu Without Looking Silly

Tutus have been ignored for too long, cast to the side and not taken seriously as legitimate clothing. Enough is enough. Nobody puts baby tutu in the corner. There are ways to wear tutu-esque skirts without looking too much like a failed ballerina with a sad inability to let go of the glory days. We’ll tell you how after the jump.Do


  • Even think about wearing a leotard with that tutu.
  • Wear shoes that lace around the ankle, you’ll be getting too literal.
  • Carry a tote or over-large bag with this outfit, it’ll look too heavy.
  • Get too cutesy with the accessories. Strong cuffs, chunky rings and bad ass necklaces are the key. Delicate jewelry and hair accessories are to be avoided, you’re already wearing a tutu, after all.
  • Wear a loose top with your tutu. The skirt’s already voluminous and you’ll look over-large if you don’t go with a fitted shirt.
