How To Wear A Tutu Over 30.

I took a tutu to New Zealand.

Of course I did.

When you're dealing with this kind of epic scenery you really have to throw everything at a photograph.

Creating this fashion moment - and it was a moment - was a dream. Loved every single pale pink second.

But beyond the majesty of the tulle, the style point behind this post was to show what an off-duty tutu looks like. Over 40.

The trick is all in volume and length.

You want the tutu to hit the floor and the top to sit high at the waist.

Then you need to add a flat. Preferably a boot.

The reason this outfit works is the juxtaposition of hard and soft.  It doesn't get more contrasty than a tutu with biker boots.

Regular readers know that I'm all about having fun with fashion, using your good things and dressing up when the situation calls for it.

This is what all those things look like in a photo.
