When dressing young girls, tights are a quintessential fashion accessory that can elevate an outfit from beautiful—to exquisite. Not only is this true for special occasion wear, such as First Holy Communion dresses and bridal party ensembles, but in fact, the right leg wear can make any outfit stylish.

Most little girls love to dress up...

Most little girls love to dress upand not just as their favourite Disney character! Younger girls are often known for their enthusiasm when it comes to clothes and accessories—sometimes going through several outfits in one day! From hair ties to shiny shoes, kids can be just as obsessed with the details as adults. What often sets children apart, however, is their love of vibrant colours and patterns.

Encourage a Young Girl's Passion for Colour

This passion for a favourite colour can cause consternation in parents who are trying to coax a child into a clothing item of a different colour. Before matters reach distress levels, there is a solutiontights!!

A fabulous accessory, tights come in an array of colours and pretty prints, and make a marvellous compromise when a child may reject an outfit because of its lack of colour or pattern. A garment in a dark solid shade such as navy, may look dull to a child, but give them the option of pairing it with exquisitely patterned tights in a colour of choice, and you may just avoid a major battle!

Popular colours for younger girlssuch as pink and purplecomplement a wide range of colours surprisingly well. Patterned tights, too, can be useful in acquiescing a forthright young mind; when an outfit is devoid of a pattern and largely monochrome, a pretty print can add a captivating element that entices children to wear them.

Choosing Tights for Girls is Easy!

Choosing tights for young girls is easy: simply match the tight to the occasion. A special event like a wedding or First Communion requires a more elegant, refined tight, such as a micronet or tulle. A striped, thicker tight is often more suited to a playdate or outing to the shops. No matter what the event, we have a myriad of colours and styles to delight even the fussiest of little girls! Below are just some of our favourites.

Special occasions call for special legwear! The styles Amanda, Axelle and Celine, are ideal for any elegant event.

The Amanda tights are enchanting, with a vertical flowery vine that encircles both legs. The design is fluid and delicate, and looks beautiful peeping out from under a longer hem, such as a Communion dress.

Axelle is daintily decorated with sweet little flowers and butterflies weaving diagonally around the leg. The silver and white thread gives the appearance that the flowers and butterflies have been hand embroidered rather than machine woven. Little girls will simply adore these tights! We suggest wearing them with a shorter dress or skirt so that the pattern can be fully appreciated.

Celine are another visual treat! A fully decorated floral tight, they're perfect for girls who love to look pretty. Like the Axelle, these also have a white and silver thread woven through the pattern, enhancing the rich floral design. For their beauty to be fully appreciated we suggest wearing with a shorter dress or skirt—or for the very fashion-forward youngster: a lovely pair of shorts.

If the dress itself is very elaborate, then the perfectly understated complement would be a dainty dot tight, such as the Erika, or a micromesh tight, like the Resille. These choices add a polished, sophisticated look to an outfit without overwhelming it. Both are available in classic white or ivory, with Resille mesh tights also available in navy blue and rose pink.

Pretty in Pink: A Surprisingly Versatile Colour

If your child is all about colour, we have some fabulous shades available! What's more, you'll be genuinely surprised at just how well they match other tones. For lovers of pink, we offer predominantly four shades:

  • soft ballet pink
  • fuschia
  • rose pink  
  • electric pink

The right hue of pink pairs with almost any colour—even red! Here are some styles that come in some gorgeous shades of pink.

Girosole, features a pretty miniature daisy pattern in a ballet pink. Ballet pink is our favourite pink hue because it's so versatile and goes with practically every other colour! The pattern on Girosole is sweet and unobtrusive, and won't compete with the main garment.

 Petit, a herringbone, warm tight, comes in a variety of colours including rose pink—a hue that teams especially well with greys, blacks and navy blue. Our Judy tight is made especially for little girls with a dreamy weave that appears as though it has been crocheted with a fine yarn. Both of these tights are stunning in pink.

Bimba Rib, as the name suggests, is a rib tight, extremely warm and comfortable to wear. The fuschia version pops with vibrancy and looks fabulous against a lime green or a tangerine. Of course, it also matches all the classics, including grey, navy, black and white.
