When shopping for pre-teens, pay attention to current trends in pre-teen fashion. Kids can be the harshest critics, so your pre-teens may not like to wear what’s not accepted by the “in” crowd. Look at the fashion available through online merchants such as Justice and Old Navy for ideas. Here are four trends to consider:
1. Graphic Tees
Both pre-teen boys and pre-teen girls love these tees. Baggy on the boys and slightly more fitting on the girls, these feature cartoon characters, sports teams, and cute and zany designs with funny and cute sayings. The pseudo-faded look on the designs makes the tees more appealing than typical t-shirts.
2. Graphic Hooded Sweatshirts
Again appealing to both pre-teen girls and pre-teen boys, graphic hooded sweatshirts are the perfect combination of casual and trendy. Featuring many of the same designs as the aforementioned but with additional warmth, graphic hooded sweatshirts are great for the colder months of the year.
3. Ruffled, Layered Skirts
For pre-teen girls, ruffled, layered skirts are a hot new fashion trend. The skirts often have a floral design and can be worn both for formal occasions
and just when heading outdoors in the Spring and Summer months.
4. Cargo Shorts
Especially popular with pre-teen boys are cargo shorts, but you’ll find some cargo shorts in pre-teen girl designs, too. These are popular in both denim and khaki.
