Shopping with your teenager can be a challenging experience for many parents. If you are familiar with the arguments and tears that often accompany a parent/teenager trip to the shopping mall, why not bypass the whole issue and shop for your teen’s summer wardrobe online? With more selection, free shipping and the ability to try on clothes in the comfort of your home, rather than a cramped changing room cubicle, online shopping can be a complete sanity saver when it comes to choosing summer clothes with your teen.
Shorts and tees are a staple of teen fashion, and this summer shorts are cuter and more appealing than ever with whimsical prints and bright colours. Lengths are either short, or just above the knee. Pair shorts with a simple girly tee, or for the brave, mix and match patterns and stripes to create a very up to the minute, eye catching look. Tees can range from simple singlets, and sleeveless tops, to cute printed shirts and blouses. Military inspired shirts are comfortable and stylish - great for summer.
Maxi skirts are making a bit of a return this summer as well, and can be a fabulous, feminine summer look for teens, especially when paired with a simple singlet or top, and flat sandals. For a cute and cool look, try a short floaty skirt. There are plenty of these around, and they make the most of the current trend for prints. Look out for birds, flowers and animal designs that will appeal to girls of any age, or your daughter can channel her inner rock star with a simple denim mini, or this skirt from iconic brand The Lost Girls.
Summer dresses are a staple for any wardrobe, and there are plenty on offer for teens this season. Choose from soft jersey dresses and colourful prints, which can be paired with leggings and a cardigan until the weather fully warms up. Maxi dresses are still popular, and have the advantage of looking good on a range of different body types, while there are also lots of pretty summer dresses in shorter lengths available. With a bit of creativity, and possibly some compromise, shopping for your teen this summer doesn’t have to be a frustrating or confrontational experience!
