The makers of Sculptz,
some of my favorite shapeware hosiery, have come out with a kids version
of (no, not their shapeware!) their Silkies line of tights. Aptly
called Little Silkies,
they are pretty much everything you want in a tight.
Made of nylon with
just a bit of spandex, they’ve got the same kind of weave, comfort and
gentle sheen of a ballet tight, but seem to be just a bit more durable.
(My girls tear through their ballet tights–literally. Sigh.)
The footless tights are absolutely adorable as a sleeker leggings
alternative, plus they don’t seem to roll up on on the calf. There are also some standard footie tights that are just as
well-constructed. At these prices–just $15 for a three pack–you can
grab one of each to get you through the next two seasons and beyond.
One thing I really love? The colors. Purple. Navy. Grey. White. Not a
spot of leopard or a drop of shimmer in sight. I’m sure they’ll come
soon, but for now I just love the simplicity of a good, basic pair of
little girl tights. –Liz
