My bil has said to get my niece clothes. I’ve asked for ideas but he said “whatever”hmm

Can any of you give me some ideas? She is a bit of a primadonna so I’m pretty sure “whatever” wouldn’t quite cut it grin

What is her style? That might help narrow it down, what does she usually wear?

Sorry I don’t really know. She lives overseas.
She is very sporty so thought about some sporty stuff, but she can also dress up in sparkly girly stuff, so it’s hard to know.

I thought if there are particular brands that are especially cool then I’d be covered but I have no clue
(Mum to small boys, I doubt a dinosaur tee shirt would do grin)

If she's overseas in North America, you could try Ivivva.

My 12yo loves Adidas and Champion at the moment.

If she likes Beyonce, have a look at Ivy Park (Topshop)

Top shop, River Island. Anything sporty from JD. Hoody’s are a loved item too, you can’t go wrong with a hoody smile

My 13 year old loves 'Bershka' and 'Pull and Bear'.

I would suggest Brandy Melville. Very popular with my DDs and their friends. I think their only UK shops are in London but you can order on-line.
I think it is difficult though. One of my DDs who is into clothes would not wear anything with an obvious brand, like Ivy Park, Champion or some of the Holllister and Jack Wills stuff. but some other DC that age love having a branded hoodie for example.

Yes, Brandy Melville.

I bought my 12yo niece a sweatshirt with sparkly circles on it from Zara. No idea if it will be well received or not! Disappointed it is not listed by those in the know on this thread!
