Like many of today’s hottest clothing trends, it all started on the fashion runway, with many of the top fashion designers showing tutu’s being worn as part of various fashion ensembles. In many cases, the tutus were even the most featured part of the design itself. Of course, it wasn’t long afterward that these tutu looks were finding their way into the closets of various celebrities. Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have all been seen around town as well as on stage donning these ballerina-inspired togs. Celebrity kids have embraced the tutu trend year-round as well with the likes of Suri Cruise, Violet Affleck and Madonna’s adopted daughter, Mercy James, all being spotted wearing these big poofy skirts crafted from ruffles and tulle. It seems that getting dressed up in a tutu isn’t just for dance class anymore; most any occasion seems to do.
Costumes are a great way to quickly get into the fashion action! Adding a tutu to your best costume look is a quick and easy way to not only be right on trend, but to very simply add some personality, spunk as well as panache to your favorite costume look. Most any costume character can be “tutu’d” up with relative ease. Adding a tutu under a full skirt isn’t the only way to get this look, either. In fact, these days, wearing the tutu on the outside of your outfit is just as cool as wearing one underneath the costume, in fact, these days this is almost preferred! Show off those tutus!
Adding a tutu on top of a snug fitting, body-skimming costume adds a super feminine touch that really “girls up” a costume.

Adding a tutu (or tutus!) on top of these costumes is a fantastic way to easily add a nice girly touch to your costume while personalizing it a bit at the same time. These unique looks are not only right on trend with today’s hottest fashion styles, but the look is absolutely tutu adorable.
