The Tutu Fashion Look:: How to Wear a Tutu?

AWE ... The famous historical "tutu". Known to be worn in the early 1500's by ballerinas.

"a skirt worn as a costume in a ballet performance, often with attached bodice. It consists of a Basque (or waistband, as it can either be part of the bodice or a separate band) and the skirt itself might be single layer, hanging down, or multiple layers starched and jutting out.

   Today; we can see quite a few variations of the "tutu". Back in the old days they had different names; such as the "Romantic Tutu: A three-quarter length, bell-shaped skirt made of tulle."

The bell-shaped tutu here is given some modern effect with a waistband and button closure ... a bralet and a cropped jacket set this fashion look on fire.

Add a pair of rugged, combat boots to the mix ...

Maybe a gold chunky chain or two ...

Personally I might throw in a front hobo bag with chain accent to give it a little more attitude...

   Or the "Classical Tutu (pancake): A very short, stiff skirt made with layers of netting that extends straight outwards (from the hips) in a flat pancake shape."

The classical stiff tutu looks great with a tank top or a bustier; then top it with a cropped little button up blazer.

A pair of ankle booties would look awesome in this fashion look.

I would go with a sweet little pendant necklace and some bangles too ...

Then add a chic little tote or maybe a clutch.

 Then we have the "Balanchine/Karinska Tutu: also known as the "powder puff", this skirt is loosely tacked to give a softer, fuller appearance.

The balanchine tutu has a simple, sweet look ... a lace bustier or halter top would give this a subperb fashion look.

A pair of platform pumps would set this look on fire ...

A cropped floral print jacket, or a geo-print jacket would be the perfect match n mix ensemble for this tutu.

I would accessorize with a envelope clutch to finalize the look....

   We should not forget the " Platter Tutu: A tutu with a flat top that sticks straight out from the ballerina's waistline. It is very similar to the pancake tutu, though the top of the tutu is almost completely flat, where the pancake tutu is a bit fuller at the top."

Here is a tutu with attitude. The Platter tutu.

Reminds me of something Lady Gaga would wear. Cropped leather biker jacket.

Chunky chain jewelry maybe in gold or black linkage.

A pair of lace-up boots or stilts I would call them.

What do you think? Are you a "tutu" fan? Which fashion look is your favorite? I would love to know; I'm always curious of your personal flavors of fashion ... Drop me a line ... inquiring minds would love to know!
