Shop­ping for tweens made easy

Style Magazine - - Fashion - BY EL­LIE HUGHES

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.

GET­TING CLOTHES FOR YOUR TWEEN DOESN’T HAVE TO BE DIF­FI­CULT
