Clothing for young teens

My DD is 13 and has grown a lot recently but she has skinny legs and arms and a big belly, I assume this a pre a big growth spurt and puberty. I am stuggling to find clothes which are fashionable, not slashed or show off her belly. Any ideas where we go to shop?

I have 12 and 14 year old, both wear small mens/womens. Have you tried H&M, new look, river island

Primark ladies clothes start at a size 4 or 6. My dd 13 has had a few things from there recently. Although trousers are no good as far to long!

I have started to look at size 4s and up on ASOS and Boohoo for dd, but it is a bit hit and miss - watch out for necklines being too low/big, and some items too tight, some too big, so it is unpredicatable. Otherwise we do Primark, New Look, H and M. I would look at the Top Shop petite range but their stuff is kind of odd this season. Dorothy Perkins Petite might also be useful.

Zara goes up to age 14. Also Next & Gap. I tend to find we can use adult clothing for tops but trousers are too long/wrong shape unless I get a specific teen size. George at Asda v good for jeans/jeggings.

I've always found New Look good for younger teens -on trend but without being too adult
