When it comes to little girls, mommies' hands itch to doll up their boobas. The bows! The pink! The tutus!
There are (at least, there should be) some laws of girlie attire. Turn to the timeless styles that will suit little ones forever.
They will always, and I mean always, look sharp in a pleated skirt and sweater/blouse/blazer.
There is also one universally flattering genre of clothing that is adorable no matter one's age: nautical.
For teenagers, the laws of pleated skirt and sweater/blazer hold especially true. Figureless and gawky, tweens and teens often have to struggle to appear polished. My niece, for instance, currently looks as though she was put in the taffy-puller. A tunic and pencil skirt highlights and emphasizes her lanky limbs; a flary skirt and short sweater downplays them.
And when it comes to tutus, it is perfect for the pitsy. There is an age limit, I suppose, but it is so darn cute. I want one.
