VideosA Tutu-orialMr. Kate

People are always talking about “wardrobe staples.” Gotta have that perfect pair of black slacks, a go-to jean jacket, or the perfect LBD (little black dress).

Well, here’s a rather uncanny wardrobe staple suggestion: the tutu! Yes, tutus are totally wearable! Not the crazy pale pink ballerina kind that show your butt cheeks, but the more flowing, poofy ones they sell at Forever 21 and H&M.

Watch the dance style video above to see how I styled my black tutu from Forever 21 in 5 different ways! Don’t be intimidated by my sweet moves.

Look 1. Funky Business Chic

Pair TUTU with:

  • A dressy top or tank
  • Blazer
  • Waist belt
  • Snazzy shoes

Look 2. Spring Wedding Outfit

Pair TUTU with:

  • A bright-colored dress (wear tutu over dress)
  • Wide belt
  • Shoes in a contrasting bright color

Look 3. Funky Night on the Town

Pair TUTU with:

  • A slouchy top (untucked)
  • Heeled boots
  • Layered necklaces and bracelets

Look 4. Weekend Luncheon

Pair TUTU with:

  • Worn-in denim shirt
  • Colorful waist belt
  • Snazzy shoes

Look 5. Cocktail Party

Pair TUTU with:

  • Tuxedo blouse
  • Fancy shoes
  • Statement necklace
  • Red lipstick

  11. [...] See more ways to style a tutu here! [...]

  12. [...] I’m doing this little ditty called The Mr. Kate Web Show. There will be around 8 episodes coming out errr, I think. Here’s the first webisode which I thought was perfect for the Glue Guns and Giggles with Mr. Kate column because in it I do a really cheap and easy home decor DIY with some flea market frames and Hipstamatic prints. I also demo a spiced sangria recipe. What more could you need!? Oh, you want me to sing and dance? Fine, I do that too, in 5 inch heels and a tutu. [...]

  13. Wow, all such great ideas! Here I thought only the prek set could pull one off (they do it so easily…) gonna have to make a bold purchase ASAP!

  14. I LOVE tutus, LOVE LOVE LOVE them, especially since I am a ballerina! However, as absolutely stunning and gorgeous as you look (which you do!) tutus are very hard to wear if you are a bigger girl like me both height and weight-wise. :-( But I’m madly in love with your different tutu looks! Especially #1! <3

  15. can you provide a link to that tutu? or a tutu like it? i can’t find it on forever 21′s website, and i NEED one, thanks to this vid!

  16. I love this! I want a tutu, but I haven’t seen any. Now I’ll have to check Forveer 21 though!

  17. Everything about this reminds me of Sarah Jessica Parker and Sex and the City. Super cute video and looks!

  18. Loving the dance moves! I’ve never thought of pairing a slouchy top with a tutu, must try that one out
