Shopping for tweens made easy
Tween girls sit in an age group that is incredibly hard to shop for. At about nine to 12 years old, all the clothes available to them seem to be aimed at small children or 16-year-olds. However there are a few guidelines that can help overcome this when shopping for and dressing a tween.
IT’S OK TO BE CASUAL
A tween is still young, which is what makes them a tween.
So be casual when shopping for them, because it’s the style that most suits their age group.
Give them an outfit or two for going out, but there’s no need to go overboard.
DRESS FOR THE OCCASION OR LOCATION
Every age group would do well to remember there is a time and place for every outfit.
An outfit for a tween should be situation and location appropriate.
For example, the short-shorts are for around the house or at the beach, not the shopping centre.
QUALITY COMES BEFORE PRICE
There aren’t many quality options when shopping for tweens, so be a little picky.
Something of decent quality that costs more is likely to last longer and be more useful, saving you money in the long run.
Clothing like this is usually more versatile as well, which means it can suit many outfits.
APPROPRIATE AMOUNTS OF SKIN
There is no need for tweens to show vast amounts of skin and it only takes away from any sense of style that could be developed.
It looks inappropriate and overdone and attracts undesirable attention.
