Pre-teen, who hates fashion and jeans growing fast and where to buy new clothes

Nearly every shop we went to in the high street DD(9) eyed up all the clothes that were to small. Then turned her nose up at the clothes in her size.

Gap as the only place with something, trackie bottoms, a fleece and two tops all in the sale. Normally don't shop their because it's to expensive for my pitiful wage. I have been searching on ebay and some of the boden, fatface or surf wear dd likes but normally goes for a good price.

Any one help me find nice simple girls clothes for an fussy young lady (size 10-11-12).

Thanks but tried all of them it just teenage clothes that she dislikes. I have to say dd's still is a child and not a teenager why should she be made to be a young woman before her time.

H&M do have a lot of teen stuff in that age group but they also have more basic stuff too. I notice lots of hoody-type tops and plain t-shirts and tracksuit pants in colours like purple, turquoise etc. I find sometimes there it is like mini-hooker central then then others you can be lucky. My niece is 10 so I I tend to shop there for presents for her. Unfortunately she LIKES the slutty stuff! My sis likes me to buy for her as she tends to like what I get her regardless.

Also places like Zara and H&M often have nice plain t-shirts in the boys section for that age group in nice colours.

Thanks didn't know about Zara and we do have one in the smart area of town that I don't often go to.

Just looked at Zara online and I think it will tick the right boxes for dd. Will have to go there next time we are in town.
