I have a special interest in what “Tweens” are wearing but haven’t come across any at all in the media except for Miss Willow Smith.
My eldest is almost the same age as Willow who is 11 years old and although my daughter doesn’t get invited to VIP events, the dilemna is the same for us all – what is appropriate wear for this Tween age?
I think Willow looks lovely in her bright yellow dress which is so very traditional in the shape and style of a perfect long tea dress. Retro except for the colour. Seeing a bit of the pointed toe shoes I did panic and wondered if she was wearing patent hight heels but they seem to have a low wedge heel – phew! I woudn’t let my Tween wear pointy toes like that but I suppose for a couple of hours for a special ocassion would be ok if they didn’t hurt.
Willow’s coat blows me away! I absolutely love it! The whole outfit is such an inspiration to me combining classic and modern in her own very unique style as I try to add colour to my neutral wardrobe.
My Tween loves nothing better than to dress up to go out but even if we’re not going anywhere, she will change out of her school uniform every afternoon and dress up anyway eg. with a scarf, big faux pearls, a long skirt or trousers. She outgrew baby pink 3 years ago and moved on to purple, deep pink and coral shades – intuitive choices that suit her well. We are all happy….for now.
