Being a teenager is a bit of a fraught time for both the kids and their parents, and when a young girl is finding her feet it can be hard to feel like you look cool and still please Mum and Dad too. This outfit from Miss Selfridge and Oli combines girly style with on trend fashion to produce an outfit that will make any teenage girl feel cutting edge without looking beyond her years.
This dress, though strapless, has a high neck and full skirt for a sensible amount of bared skin that won’t be too grown up for girls around 14. I’ve teamed it with a bolero jacket which looks cool and funky, too, so she won’t object to covering her shoulders when appropriate.
Combined with this irresistably girly bag and a pair of very fashionable gladiator sandals, this summery outfit is youthful and fresh, but won’t make her feel like a frump.
