Hi my dd isn't 11 yet but starts secondary school in September. I wave her to fit in. What are the kids into??

Currently she has:

I'm mainly into items for school but interested in casual stuff too ....

Watch: Grey Tickers
Bag: Nike and RI Backpack Black or Grey
Trainers: Nike Black or Grey. I really want to get her some Air Max but they are £120
Coat: Adidas or RI Black

Thanks x

Honestly I've never given it a thought. DD did ask for a Kanken backpack after she's been there for a bit as most of her friends have one.

They all seem to find a tribe and all the tribes will be into something different so it's a bit hard to guess in advance.

I've bought some reebok running trainers tbh. My dd is 11 and isn't bothered by owt. Your over thinking it

My dd is going into yr 7 and I know what you mean about fitting in. She’ll be getting some black/white Nikes for PE, but all the girls use tote bags (reported by my yr8 ds)

Watch- none, they are allowed mobiles.
Bag- ergonomic one with laptop pocket for age 10-14, bought at the start of year 5, still happy with it in year 10.
Trainers- grey under armour ones at the moment, whatever is on sale on sportsshoes, no interest in brands.
Coat- Wore a navy Lee Cooper one for the last couple of winters, now a second hand Hollister one from ebay for next winter.
