It’s Poppy for stripes and puffy skirts


What is it that I love about stripey tights? The little pop of fun they lend an outfit? Or perhaps it’s because they look so cute on chubby toddler legs?

Although thoughts of stripey tights might be tucked away with the rest of the winter wardrobe, take a quick peek at the range at Poppy – they are truly lovely and when the cooler weather rolls around again you’ll be searching high and low for raspberry and cream stripes or mustard and blue stripes. Or light blue tights with big cream polka dots, or plain tights in the perfect shade of plum (there are lots to choose from!).


Also at Poppy are frothy petticoats in a huge range of colours (seventeen colours in fact). You know a designer takes their petticoats seriously when there are five shades of pink to pick from (coral, candy, vintage, dusky and rose) and five blues and greens.

Both the tights and the petticoats co-ordinate with the very special, truly beautiful Poppy dresses. We’ve long been fans of the unique designs and the petticoats and tights give the dresses a little more party-oomph.


Tights are £9.99 a pair and petticoats are £37.95. Tights are sizes from one to eight years and petticoats from one to seven years. Mums should note that the tights and petticoats are also available in adult sizes. The full range is available online at Poppy who deliver worldwide.
