I am beyond excited to say that Market Mommy is among the first in the blogosphere to review clothing pieces from the soon to launch CALZICO clothing line! What an honor! If you have tween girls, this is definitely something you should sit down and pay attention to!! CALZICO is globally inspired, versatile clothing for tweens with reversible and convertible features. “So many ways, she’ll have outfits for days.”
My daughter was thrilled when our package arrived and immediately loved the look and the feel of the clothes. Shannon, the company's founder, graciously sent us a signature ‘zipskirt’ and jacket to try. The skirt has a removable layer revealing shorts underneath for two ways to wear it. The jacket can be worn four (YES 4!) ways. We show it here closed; using interior and exterior buttons, but it can be worn open as a cardigan and then reversed to wear both ways again!
The fabric and pattern were beautiful and the clothing had a soft, luxurious feel to it. If you’re like me, you struggle to find appropriate clothing for your tween daughters. Not only is my daughter on the shorter side, making clothes often disproportioned, she’s quite picky! I often find that clothes in her size range fit poorly and are sometimes too mature. So, when I discovered CALZICO and their concept, I was thrilled.
According to Shannon, , the CALZICO collection is for Tween girls, ages 6 to 14 years and is specifically designed for that in-between stage. She says that during the construction of each piece, consideration is given to how it will give tweens a boost of self-confidence. This is so critical at such a crucial age!
One of the strongest strengths of CALZICO clothing is its versatility. It can be worn multiple ways and multiple styles. You can see that in the two pieces we reviewed. All pieces of the collection are able to be flipped, zipped or layered to create multiple looks. This gives girls even more ways to express themselves, which is a definite plus at any age!
CALZICO is officially launching this December and its first season will feature six pieces. The collection includes reversible items, the skirt we reviewed (which converts to shorts) and other pieces, all of which are responsibly made right in North Carolina. CALZICO is cut and sewn in NC using textiles from the US, West and South Africa, Australia, Canada, and Indonesia that celebrate world diversity while aligning with others who empower locally.
The good news is that you don’t have to wait until December! You can pre-order during CALZICO’s special Kickstarter campaign that was just launched this week. Check out all of the great information and pre-order options by clicking here now!
