Tutus for women and girls add some drama and whimsy to a costume. These short skirts are layered and ruffled. Although they're a must have for ballerina costumes, they're a great addition to many other outfits as well. The classic tutu is multiple layers of ruffled organza that wraps the hips and sticks straight out. These can be worn over a leotard and tights and add substance to a ballerina outfit. Tutus like these come in black, white, and almost every imaginable color. There are even multicolored ones and several tutu have LED lights that can be turned on for a dramatic sparkle. Tutus are fun for clown costumes, angels, fairies, and more.
Other tutus hang more like a short skirt. They can be worn like a petticoat under another skirt to give it shape and fullness, or worn on their own. They may consist of many layers of sheer material and often have ruffled hems. Some of these skirts come multicolored with each layer a different color. Some tutus are elegant enough to be worn as a fancy outfit. The black tutu dress, for instance, will make you look like you're ready for a night on the town. Others go well with flapper costumes or even sexy adult outfits.
