I decided to set myself a challenge. A challenge to style a tutu in a more 'casual' look. Nothing really glam, something you could maybe wear everyday. Because who doesn't want to rock a tutu everyday?!
Plaid Cotton Shirt - Navabi*
Tutu - Tutu Factory*
Boots - Yours Clothing
Why yes. I am the most awkward person ever. I love a good plaid shirt, and Emily in Pretty Little Liars has me really loving them even more right now. This seemed like it could be a cute combo and I think I'm right! Navabi are a high end plus size brand, and you can really tell in the materials and quality of their brands. This shirt is 100% cotton. I don't think I've ever even worn something that is 100% cotton before and it is so soft and comfy.
The tutu is all black, with an elasticated waist with a tiny bow on it, and no underskirt/lining. I wore it with leggings because hey, it's cold! Plus, with no lining you are definitely flashing more flesh with this tutu. Perfect for a saucy night out, not so much for the casual look I was going for.
A quick change of top and another casual outfit. I love the orange stripes in this Navabi top. Sadly this is no longer available, but there are a lot of lush orange colours in their range for Spring. In both of these looks I wore the tutu low on my hips rather than higher on my waist like I usually would, to show the different silhouette it can offer.
I have become seriously obsessed with tutus and officially need everything Tutu Factory sell. They have a plus size range up to a size 32 as standard, and will also custom make any tutu you want, in any size you want. How cool is that?! I love seeing indy brands doing good in their sizes. Their prices are so reasonable, and they offer a discount on bulk orders... you know you need a tutu or two right?
For my next tutu look I think I'm gonna have to go totally different.....
