I’m happy to admit that I’m not particularly materialistic when it comes to dressing my daughter. I truly believe she looks gorgeous in anything she wears. My mini fashionista however, has some very clear ideas about what she’d like to wear. I’m sure you all think like I do, and your little cherub could wear a bin bag and still look perfect, but in case your tween needs wardrobe update like mines does (how do they grow this fast?!) here are some fab pieces that my 8 year old deems to be ‘on-trend’.
Meet your tween girl stylist
As I’ve already mentioned, I had a helper for this post, in the form of my 8 year old daughter. She very much likes pink and flowers, so I asked her to try and pick out a few different bits and pieces to share. All pieces are hand chosen by her, so please excuse the bias for pink!
New Look Teens 915 Tropical Print Playsuit
Don’t be fooled by the range referring to itself as ‘teen’, sizes start from 9yrs+, making it perfect for tweens. They’ve got an enormous range for girls aged 9-15 and it offers grown-up style without making your tween look old beyond her years. Get this tropical playsuit here for £15.99.
Emma says: “I love the colours and the pattern makes, it makes me think of summer. It’s really pretty and grown up.”
Joules Girls A-Line Stripe Dress
This summery frock is absolutely gorgeous and I wish it was available in my size! Available from 3-12 years, you could probably dress younger siblings to match (if your tween allows)! Available at House of Fraser (and currently in the sale) for £19.96.
Emma says: “I like this because my mum wears clothes like this and I want to look like her.”
John Lewis Floral Bomber Jacket
Floral bombers are here to stay. They exploded onto the rails sometime last year and it’s the must-have piece to add light layers to summer threads. Floral bombers give permission for clashing prints, meaning they are an investment that goes with everything! Available at John Lewis for £22.00.
Emma says: “I like how the pattern is big and then smaller on the sleeves. The colours are pretty and look like something my older cousin would wear.”
Vertbaudet Girls Stripy Dress
Another possibility on the matching siblings front, this dress is available from 18 months to 14 years! The bows are cute but not too cutesy and the frilly skirt is just too fabulous! Available at Vertbaudet for £22.50 (but if it’s your first order, you’ll get a 20% discount! Yipee!)
Emma says: “I like they stripes, they remind me of those sailor dresses.”
Summer Harmony Pink Sparkle Shoes
Okay, I could only stave off the pink and flowery sparkles for so long, she did really well at picking a variety of colours, didn’t she? These shoes are very jazzy ad very summery. The hi-top design makes them super trendy too. Available here at Startrite shoes for £29.00.
Emma says: “I LOVE THESE! They’re so pink and sparkly! My favourite!”
Jojo Siwa Pink Ombre Bow
I imagine you’ve probably already come across this big and bouncy bows. Every school girl I know wants a Jojo bow. They’re a hot accessory in the primary school playground! Emma has been begging for one for a while and I’ve finally succumbed to this one. It’s on it’s way to us as we speak! Available at Claire’s for £10.00.
Emma says: “I’ve wanted one of these for ages and I’m really excited to get mine. I love the bows with white at the bottom, it looks really different and pretty.”

I’ve loved having a little helper for this post, I hope you’ve liked her choices. What does your tween like? They can’t all be obsessed with pink can they?
