Shopping with teens isn’t always easy, but it doesn’t have to be complicated either. If your teens are trying to look stylish on a shoestring student budget, or want to make their salary stretch a little further, there are lots of ways you can help.
Firstly, encourage them to shop in the right places. Look for seasonal sales, student outlets, and discount stores. With that in mind, here are our three favourite style bargains:
Pretty In Prints
Maxi dresses never go out of fashion, meaning your teen could invest in this dress now and wear it season after season. The figure sculpting print and flattering fit means it will look great on all shapes and sizes.
This dress could be styled with heels or sandals for parties or nights out. Alternatively, crisp white trainers can be added to dress it down, making it perfect for shopping trips, lectures, or even dress down days at work. The print isn’t one for the shy and retiring, but if your teen likes to keep one finger on the fashion pulse and stand out from the crowd, then this is the perfect choice. And thanks to its reduced sale price, it’s a real steal too!
Luscious Lemon Knitwear
If you’re packing your teen off to cold university dorms then it’s likely that they’ll be wearing jeans and jumpers all winter long. Why not treat them to a couple of new jumpers to send them on their way and help them up their knitwear game? We love this relaxed fit, super soft jumper with a statement stripe pattern and oversized sleeve detail: there’s no more stylish way to beat the winter chill.
This jumper was just made to be paired with denim, but it can be styled in a range of versatile ways to suit different styles and tastes. Tuck it into high waisted jeans for a modern, preppy look. Alternatively, embrace this season’s 90s-revival trend by embracing the oversized look and wearing your jumper loose, and over slouchy fit jeans. Sure to attract admiring glances without being too attention-grabbing, this jumper has been reduced to just £20, meaning that it will make a great gift without hurting your wallet!
Brilliant Black Boots
The black ankle boot is the staple of every woman’s winter wardrobe, but this pair is special. With its high block heel and circular zip pull, they have a vintage feel that will elevate any outfit, and they’re incredibly versatile too: they’ll look just as good for glamorous nights out as they will paired with black trousers for a day at work.
