Mothers love dressing their daughters, that’s a fact. My sister has girls and for the longest time she has enjoyed choosing their clothes and making them look pretty. Unfortunately they are growing up now and they want to choose their own clothes which can make creating whole new looks, an expensive matter. However, spend wisely and your little girls can get a whole new wardrobe of outfits using the clothes they have. The secret ingredient? Tights!
Here at My Tights we are so excited that our new range of children’s tights have landed. Woollies, sheers, lurex, spots, stripes, school tights, plain colours, loud colours and quiet colours, we seem to have ordered the lot and now I need to tell you about them, so you can buy them!
Country Kids Warmer Cotton Children’s Tights seem to have come up with just about every colour under the sun. With over 80% cotton in the mix and a reinforced toe, as the name suggests, these are warmer weight winter tights, perfect with boots, shoes or wellies. The range includes classic school colours such as navy and grey, red and black so these are also perfect as term time staples.
Pex Cotton Rich Children’s Tights are hot on their heels, if you’ll excuse the pun. These are slightly lighter weight tights but still warm and cosy with over 70% cotton in the mix. There are 12 colours in the range including Pillarbox Red and Pea Green and a really true Royal Blue. Both these and the Country Kids Warmer Cotton Children’s Tights appeal to young ladies of all ages. Pair them with pretty dresses if your child is small or team them with sawn off shorts for tweenagers. Several pairs in different colours will change the look of an outfit in one foul swoop. Bingo, cheap updates.
Sheers are another way of taking an outfit from casual to formal. Pex 20D Sheer Children’s Tights are a simple way of making an outfit smarter or more grown up. Paired with pretty shoes these are the kind of tights that tweenagers and teenagers alike will want to see them through the cooler Autumn months. Navy, black and cream work with any outfit and change colour and hey presto, change the look.
Pex 70D Opaque Children’s Tights advertise their range as uniform colours – the perfect school tights – but fashionable young misses will see that there are key colours such as burgundy, steely grey and navy, all top of the bill for this season. Again, buy several pairs and chop and change with dresses, skirts and shorts for a legion of hot off the press looks.
we’ve talked lots about how to please older children but younger ladies can develop their own style early on and combine obstinacy with a penchant or spots, stripes or any other particular theme and unless you get it right, you have a fight on your hands. Luckily we can cover every eventuality.
Country Kids Dot Children’s Tights have a smattering of rainbow colours set against a black or fuchsia pink background. Both are great for adding a dash of colour to woolley dresses, stretchy skirts and oversized knits. Stripes are another fun way to add interest to an outfit. Country Kids Lollipop Children’s Striped Tights come in two colourways, fat candy stripes and skinny pastel stripes, all with a plethora of pinks, baby blues and greys with a little yellow and orange thrown in for good measure.
All little girls love a bit of sparkle and Country Kids Sparkly Footless Tights and Country Kids Sparkly Tights don’t fail to deliver. The stretchy 80 Denier , shiny finish comes in gold and black and silver (Country Kids Sparkly Footless Tights only). Don’t think you have to save these for Christmas. As the pictures on our model show, they can look good at the height of summer.
Most of the childrens tights we’ve detailed are priced between £5 and £10. If you can create five different looks by just swapping clothes with tights, mixing and matching looks, you can begin to see what a cost effective exercise this can be. Try it with your children’s wardrobe and you might take a cue and start looking at your own!
Until next week…..
