Cary, NC – March 25, 2010
Tutus are the latest trend for babies and little girls to wear, and they are not just for ballet class anymore. A recent February 2010 issue of “In Touch Weekly” magazine featured an article titled “These Little Darlings Just Want To Dance; It’s All The Rage For Celeb Kids.” Yes, they were talking about tutus and displayed multiple photos of celebrity kids wearing tutus out and about around town. Celebrities such as Sacha Baron Cohen’s daughter, Olive (age 2); Madonna’s daughter, Mercy (age 4); Heidi Klum and Seal’s daughter, Leni (age 5); Adam Sandler’s daughter, Sadie (age 3); Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards daughter, Lola (age 4); and finally Halle Berry’s daughter, Nahla (age 2).
Beyond celebrity daughters, tutus can be seen on little girls all across the U.S. for photo shoots, play time dress up, and even simply as a trendy outfit to wear out and about. The most popular type of tutu for these girls tends to be short, fluffy, and full worn with leggings or tights underneath. Older girls even choose to wear jeans under their trendy, hip tutus. During the holidays, many fashionable moms will have tutu dresses for their daughters to wear. Red or green Christmas tutu empire waist dresses are popular, as well as red, white, and blue Fourth of July tutu skirts. There seems to be a tutu skirt or dress appropriate for any occasion or holiday from play time to Sunday best dress.
Jenni Lynn of MissTutu.com who teaches how to make tutus, shares, “Tutus have become the latest fashion trend for babies and girls even as old as teenagers. Many boutiques as well as stores in your local mall are beginning to carry a variety of tutus. Unfortunately the cost of a single tutu can be preventative for many since they average anywhere from $25 to $100 a piece. MissTutu.com was created out of my desire to provide an inexpensive way for moms to create their own professional looking easy no-sewing machine required tutus for their little girls so that every child can feel like a celebrity and princess in her tutu skirt or dress.”
Tutus for little girls are no longer just for ballerinas, but a fashion trend that will certainly be here to stay since all girls love the opportunity to dress up like a princess in their trendy tutus.
