Hi smile

Dd is 17 in early July and wants a new wardrobe as her present. However, she (and I!) are not very good at choosing things that suit/are fashionable. She wants some pieces which are a bit less basic than current.
We need to shop online.

She is not a classic teenage shape, which can make shopping a bit trickier. She has a very large bust and is generally around a size 14. Shoe size 7/8.

She would ideally like some of the following;

A jacket/coat (maybe bomber?) for warmer evenings
A pair of proper denim fashionable jeans - which don't make her legs look like tree trunks (her words!)
About 4 new tops - which are a bit wow
Some trousers
A dress
Summer shoes

If anyone is able to help or point me in the right direction, please say grin

(namechanged as worried about outing me or dd).

I'd say Primark for jeans - lots of styles and leg lengths, my Dd (and I!) swear by them. For tops, I'd suggest looking at smaller independent trendy clothes shops.

Go for v necks if you can or a long necklace with a round next top/dress as that will flatter her shape more.

Other than buying a lot of different styles I would highly recommend you go try on jeans in stores as hard to know what looks good on otherwise. Sorry not to be more helpful!

Asos! The have literally thousands of things to suit all shapes and sizes and returns are free so you can order whatever takes her fancy and send back what she doesn't sang to keep.
