As if sorting out something for myself isn't bad enough, my daughter is not being too helpful with ideas. She is a skinny jeans and cropped top kind of girl, so this is a bit of a challenge! I've got 2 weeks .... Please help x

I have a DD the same. She went to a wedding last year and I asked her to look and see what she wanted that didn't involve jeans or leggings.
She chose a couple of really lovely playsuits, one was a tailored smart one and the other was summery enough to wear to a wedding or on holiday (if you were 12!).
Is she willing to cooperate and give suggestions?

What about skinny trousers and a jacket?
I hate dresses and have always worn trousers to the odd wedding I've been to.

Luxe skinny jeans - maybe velvet or pleathet and a top of her choice.
No one really cares if teenagers are not dressed in a conventionally appropriate way, normally people are pleased that they've turned up at all. I have only boys, but jeans shirt and jacket have passed muster at weddings and funerals. Let her chose what she wants to wear and don't feel pressured into buying clothes she' all never wear again

My DD is the same and she wore smart skinny trousers and a jacket to a wedding last year.

My eldest SD is the same (age 11). She agreed to wear black, smart, skinny jeans, a jacket and a t-shirt with a lace panel on the front (white - no pink allowed!) with lace up brogue type shoes. She lives in sports wear on the whole. We found H&M had some good things.

Thanks for your suggestions! I was thinking 'dress' but am swayed by the play suit or skinnies ... I don't want something that won't see light of day again!

Jumpsuits or playsuits! She'll look super cool. Other possibility is those wide cullotty type trousers that I think are around just now, wide trousers sort of between trousers and skirts.

I would second a jumpsuit, Ted Baker girls at Debenhams had some really smart ones. u0020ted0020baker%2Fcategories%3C{productsuniverse_18662%2Fage_group_s%3E{older202842d1620years29}\here}

Sorry, it won't let me post the proper link, you will have to narrow it down to girls yourselves.
