Layering is the key to getting dressed when transitioning your wardrobe for cooler temperatures. Patterned tights are a fun and practical way for girls who love dresses and skirts to make their favorite outfits suitable the season. They add personality to ensembles and are perfect for school or everyday wear. Girls’ tights made with cotton are soft and breathable, while those made with acrylic help retain heat on especially cold days. No matter which style you choose, look for options with some spandex for a stretchier, flexible fit. Thicker options are also a great pick. They’re more resilient against wear-and-tear from regular activities and can double as leggings, too. Read on to see the best patterend tights for girls we found.
