As an aside to another thread I have running in Style & Beauty regarding teenage fashion, can anyone advise what are considered cool brands for sporty teenage girls? Girls that basically live in jodhpurs/jeggings and hoodies, but they have to be the "right" hoodies grin. DD1 is particularly into sport (and lounging around in equal measure) so where can I find clothes she will like and wear?

I have 2 dds age 12 and 16 who live in Nike and Addias , but only from JD Sports as apparently it is the only shop to buy from. It's bloody expensive though at £25 a top/ leggings and £50 a hoodie.

Ah! Yes, that is the vibe I was getting from my DDs - one of them turned her nose up at a new top from Sports Direct even though, to me it was the "right" brand. Obviously not the right shop though grin.

Beyonce has a line at TopShop.

Adidas seems to be the favourite where we are and Nike running style trainers (as opposed to Adidas for Stan Smiths)

Dd (15) & DS(12) both like Nike but in dd's case it's because she finds their sportswear very durable & supportive for actually training in rather than a fashion thing. DS likes it because his favourite team use NIKE for their kit but I've found that for other sports he does Nike's dri-fit or whatever it's called is more comfortable to wear.

We have a Nike outlet shop near to us which is very good but they are both happy with sports direct stuff.

Pink from the Victoria Secret range has all the work out clothes and lounge wear a girl could want. Massively popular now just get anything American and they'll die over it. 😂

Teen dd and ds say absolutely no to hype clothing as its for 'little kids' apparently. But the rucksacks are ok. hmm
