This isn’t your normal style and beauty post but hope you can help.
I’m making a cake for a 13 year old girl who is into fashion. It’s going to have a mock-up of a vogue cover with her photo on as the cake and 3 fondant mannequins that I will dress in little fondant outfits. They need to be dresses or skirts and tops as my mannequins have no legs like dressmaker mannequins. All the teens I know just wear baggy trousers and crop tops or sporty clothes. Please can I have some links to skirts and tops or dresses that a 13 year old girl would think are fashionable.
Thanks.

I would go classic, do three little black dresses in different silhouettes...a shorter, clingy one, a flirty one with ruffles and a sophisticated evening dress...long. If you choose three different dresses in different colours it may look messy. The little black dress is always associated with fashion and style.

Thanks FortunesFave. I had thought about little black dresses but I wonder if they are a big grown up for a 13 year old.

Also I’ve already covered the cake board in black as I wanted some colour in the outfits to contrast.

13 year olds love black dresses.my dd does anyway.

Not too grown up I wouldn't say. I mean it's not like you're going to please the hoodie wearing ones whatever you put on them! What colour is the actual cake? The board is black yes...so I'd make the cake white and the dresses black and have some black/white details on the cake and one strong colour such as red or pink as a bow and maybe a few of those fondant balls around the edge or whirls.

I don't know how feasible these are in fondant but I'd go for this pink Jacquemus dress, and this light floral Rosie Assoulin dress and probably this one from Bottega Veneta that's the sell out dress of the season. It's all high fashion though, not sure if the 13yo is into that but it fits the Vogue brief as these brands are regularly featured editorial darlings.

If the popularity of girl group Little Mix is anything to go by, the outfits need to be more 'sex worker' and less classy.
But seriously, crop tops and short skater style skirts perhaps?
