Are tutus just for dress up?

No way!  Have you seen the latest styles walking the runway this spring?  Surprisingly tutus aren’t even just for infants and little girls any more.  You’ll see a lot of tulle skirts for teenagers and women alike.  Certainly if women are donning tutu skirts for fashion and enjoying this latest trend, then little girls can wear their tutu skirts as part of a fun outfit as well.  Tutus are no longer just for dress up but are also being used as a professional looking outfit for photo shoots and as dresses for holidays and special occasions.  Let your little girl be a princess all day long when you pair a tutu skirt with jeans or leggings and a matching top.  On holidays you can create a beautiful tutu empire waist dress or tutu halter dress for her to wear.

Tutus can be purchased online or in boutique stores for $25-100.  You can also learn how to make your own tutus for your daughter with under $5 worth of supplies.  There are many no-sew options for making tutu skirts and tutu dresses so you don’t even need to worry if you are not good with a sewing machine.

Tutu Fashion Trend For Spring

Stella McCartney recently released a tutu line for GapKids and will be launching another line for them shortly.  Apparently tulle skirts are in for this spring for adults and little girls.  Top designers are filling the runways with beautiful tutu skirts for all ages.

Jenni Lynn of agrees, “Tulle skirts have always been a popular play time dress up costume for many little girls but more recently we are seeing them as skirts and dresses for every day wear thanks to tulle skirts becoming a trendy and fashionable outfit.”  Jenni teaches moms how to create skirts from tulle since the cost of purchasing boutique tutu skirts is cost preventative for many.  “Moms can learn how to create beautiful and professional looking tutu skirts for their daughter’s without spending a fortune since the basic supplies are fairly inexpensive and the instructions are easy to follow and create with.” Jenni confirms.

Once your daughter tries on her first tutu, she will most certainly be hooked on this new fashion trend and will soon be begging you to wear her tutu for more than just play time.  You can see professional photographers across the nation using tutus to dress up infants and little girls for photo shoots as well.

The tutu is hip and trendy now but it most likely here to stay in one fashion or another due to the overwhelmingly positive response with little girls who want to dress up in fun skirts and show off their princess side.
