Cute for girls, but stunning for ladies, yes, this ballerina-like skirt can be sported by women without looking like a little girl. It can be worn not just on stage but also on your formal events and casual days. Unlike any ordinary skirts, tutu skirt is difficult to pull off but makes a statement when sported properly – and by “properly”, I do not mean weird and costumey, but simple and chic. Yes, “simple”, sounds impossible for dressy clothing like tutu skirt, but actually, it is the right way to style it most especially for a casual outfit. Just like what Leonardo Da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication” – trust me, this works perfectly with this apparel. So on the day when I have only two things to accomplish: run a quick errand in the mall and cover an event in Makati, I opted for something classy that can look both casual and semi formal.
Tutu skirt could turn out to be too overwhelming when paired with fancy tops, which is why it is important to tone down your outfit and let the tutu skirt have all the attention.
You can dress it up even only with classic white shirt or vintage top, tacked it in and go with plain blazer. Also, fitted tops and cropped tops are the safest tops to match with them because of the voluminous silhouette of the tutu skirts, and then you can add a cropped jacket or vest for chicer look. But me, I only wore a plain white top with only minimal accents on its collar and just let the skirt do its own fashionable trick.
White, beige and blush are three of the best colors to match with the color of my tutu skirt. It is actually not that difficult to think of the shades to opt for, just choose between neutral and bright shades, or you can also go for the fine line in between of the two.
By choosing the right components to wear, eventually, you will learn the tricks and finally have the courage to wear it even outside the party and stage.
