Zara has a good online selection up to age 13/14

My DD doesn't care about clothes either - all the places already mentioned are good ('boys' as well as 'girls', esp Next) - the other website I have used till recently (they only go up to age 12) is Lands End Kids. Pick up odd things from Asda and Sainsbury's when I'm shopping as that's no extra travel and easy to return. Also some sweatshirts bought online - one found on amazon when she just said she wanted a green one, this xmas a nice grey marl from Cafe Press - great site where you can get just about any design you want on all sorts of items so if she's got some particular hobby or interest you can find something perfect.

Thanks ladies. A few there I haven't tried already! Next and M&S I always have a look at but they are quite hit or miss. We used to get lots of stuff from H&M when she was younger but stopped as the older girls stuff looked cheap (style not money!) This was a few years ago so might have another look esp in the boy section, thanks for that tip Senti.
Didn't even think that New Look had a website but there are a few things she might like. Good call! Someone else recommended Johnny B so waiting for their sale to be over.
Thanks again, at least I have somewhere to look now.

My dd is only 7 but hates shopping, pink and frills, too.

We are mildly successful with H&M boys' section (our top tip), Boden, sometimes La Redoute, Gap (boys and girls) and OshKosh (vie eBay).

For coats we always buy outdoorsy styles and always look in the boys' section first.

My 10yo niece lives in Next and just recently H&M

H&M but I've heard their mail order isn't very good...

new look

teens section

lots of age appropriate & tom boy type stuff, either on home delivery or collect in store

Johnny B (Boden)
Asos

Basically online with free returns so she can try on at home.

My DD has no interest in clothes. She is happy to live in black leggings plus top with boots and to be honest she looks good in anything! Dear god the girl only owns one pair of boots, school shoes and sandles! A dress? No way! Now I'm happy to buy her what she likes but I would like to expand her options! As we live in the middle of nowhere I am not spending hours driving to and then walking round shops on my own for her to hate what I have bought!
In desperation I am now calling on your expertise ladies...... Can you give me your top websites that might cater to a pink, frill hating 11yo DD?
