Bundle Up with Plush Tights

Fleece-Lined Tights for Littles

plush tights for girls!

Things about toddlerdom that trump grown-up life:

1. Unlimited mac ’n’ cheese.
2. Afternoon naps.
3. Coloring books.
4. Daily hairdressing.

Really, the only thing we had over our kids was fleece-lined tights.

Now that gig is up, thanks to Plush legwear’s new line of cozy tights for girls.

Say good-bye to endless mommy-daughter battles over cotton/nylon/spandex-blend leggings that are not warm enough for winter. Dress her instead in tights that hide a thin layer of fleece for extra insulation.

Choose from pink, navy, gray, brown, and black (all colors come in footless and footed styles) to match any outfit. And don’t worry about finicky dressers; the fleece is so thin, her party shoes will glide on without bunching the tights or crunching her toes.

Good luck explaining that it’s boot season.
