Anyone have a dd who is into skater fashion?

My dd is 9 and seems to be finding her own sense of fashion which I love. She has hated clothes shopping for so long but now she has found her style she is much more eager.

So, I would like to buy her some nice bits for xmas and need some imput from any mothers who have experience in this area as it's not exactly my style and I'd never buy the sort of thing she likes.

We went into a skater shop on Saturday and she likes the big trainers by DC - things like

She also liked the T-shirts but they were ladies sizes and she's not big enough for them yet. Is there some magical shop that does this stuff for younger girls? She wouldn't be seen dead in anything pink or glittery which is what all the high street shops seem to sell.

My DD is nearly 11 and has gone from being Princess Pink and Glittery to wanting to wear jeggings, deck shoes, baggy tops etc. I got her some silver high tops in BHS which were really nice and some red shiny deck shoes in New look (half price!). Also black skinny jeans in BHS and some batwing tops in New Look, plain colours as well as some with "80's" patterns on them.

New Look does a teenage range, so does ASDA, which veers away from the pink stuff.

Not very girly but not a lot of skate stuff is girly I'm afraid.

Kbear, we have got some bits in New Look before but we haven't got a big store with the teen range nearby, perhaps I should look online!

She loved the Crimal Damage stuff here but even a small would be too big for her at the moment, and it's £18 a t-shirt!!!!

thanks led - yes Roxy stuff has proven to be popular in the past. Trust my dd to pick designer gear from a young age! hmm

This is the skater girl store in the US - lots of DC clothing. I don't know if they ship but you could find stuff you like and then search for a stockist in the UK? The smallest sizes run really small - my DD is a very small 11 and fits into their small size.

They do ship internationally - there is a nice little currency convertor at the bottom of the screen under international shipping.

H&M is good for some pieces DD 8 mixes and matches stuff from different shops to avoid cuteness

Have a look in TK Maxx for young skaterish urbanwear. That's where I take all my nieces and nephews who are of the same persuasion!
