The advantages of buying a tutu set
Obviously, the more accessories included with the tutu the more you will have to pay, but they're a great way of creating a quick and easy 80s look. All you need to add is a baggy T-shirt or sweatshirt, preferably worn off one shoulder. By buying a tutu kit (rather than a complete costume), you can make your look more individualistic by adding the T-shirt/top of your own choice. Most sets also come in a range of colours, too, (usually pink, green, orange, blue and yellow), which means you can choose something to suit you. The elasticated waist on the tutu skirt makes them easy to wear (one size fits most) and the sets are also ideal for charity fun runs and hen nights (bachelorette parties in the U.S.).
