I’d like to get my daughter some clothes for Christmas that are a little more grown up but I’m clueless as to what styles are in for her age. Can anyone help me find a nice outfit or two for her? Thank you

Zara has nice outfits for young teens. My 12 yo really likes their stuff.

I think if the occasion was right that would be very nice.

I'd ask her. I say this after several mail order/shop purchases that have been met with horror by my 11 year old, including the last order that arrived: "But you know I don't wear dresses!"
Funny that, as not five months ago I seem to remember spending a small fortune on a primary prom dress.

Thank you. I do want her to have a look but I’m hoping to just give her something slightly more grown up as she is still inclined to choose things that are very young in style and she is struggling to fit in at secondary school. I want to try and subtly encourage her to feel a little more grown up so she can feel like she fits in a bit better.

I bought my 11yr old some subtle grey/black zebra striped skinny jeans and a grey jumper from Zara. (Hope she likes them!) She's also very into her converse high tops.

The Y7's here, including my daughter, generally just wear sports leggings and hoodies (Nike, Adidas, Hype) with Adidas Superstars.

They also all have a uniform from New Look which consists of ripped knees jeans and cropped hoodies. I have noticed that Fila trainers are the new big thing also.

That dress would be too old for my then 11yo. At 11 she was into adidas trainers, new look skinny jeans and tees. But girls are all different - go shopping with her and see what she likes.

My 11 year old pretty much lives in skinny jeans or leggings, hoodies and high tops. Very occasionally she may wear a skater style dress or skirt, usually with a hoodie and er...high tops. Oh and she absolutely will NOT let me choose clothes for her.

Hmmm I wonder if I should give her some money and the promise of a shopping trip then. She’s never shown much interest in a sporty style but if the other girls at school are going for that she may feel differently.
I was concerned the dress would be too grown up. I think I will give that a miss.

My daughter doesn’t seem to have a style as such. She just likes comfy clothes so leggings and slouchy jumpers. No cropped trousers, 3/4 sleeves, cropped jumpers etc. No stiff jeans or button waistbands or anything. She has a tendency to just grab the first items she finds in her drawers and wear them regardless of whether they clash with each other or not. I think it’s great that she is happy to just wear what she likes but i Just hope to encourage her to wear some items that will all work together and be comfy for her.

Maybe invest in a couple of stylish T-shirts, a good quality sweatshirt and some nice casual trainers/boots. They only need a few things if they have a school uniform.

If you buy her a load of stuff she feels uncomfortable it will just stay in her drawer. Don't waste money on expensive jeans etc let her keep her leggings. Depends what the kids near you tend to wear though
