Life can be so difficult for tweens sometimes. They are no longer little kids – at ages 9 to 12 at that! – but they are not quite the teenagers just yet! At this stage, ‘act your age’ might just be a little bit harder.
What’s even more challenging is dressing them up. Today’s clothes for youngsters are either too childish or too adult-esque for them teeny-boppers. And what’s worse, Hollywood isn’t necessarily helping. What, with Justin Bieber wearing his pants on his knees – literally – and just about every Hollywood female celebrity jumping on the bandwagon of dressing in a way that could only make parents cringe, shopping for this age bracket will be extra difficult.
Thankfully, there are a few good celebs whose style philosophies are certified tween friendly – for both the parents and tweens!
Here’s our list:
1. Taylor Swift
She has rightfully taken over the title as America’s sweetheart, and while you may not agree with all her relationship stories, a parent won’t have no trouble having their little tweeners copy her look. Her top tween-friendly style: florals, dainty little dresses, and casual but feminine tops to go with her jeans and boots, finished off with her very girly hairstyles.
2. Elle Fanning
Dakota Fanning’s equally beautiful lil’ sis will get thumbs up from parents everywhere. The fourteen-year old sports a very clean look on and off the red carpet. Her fashion staples: feminine tops, jeans, and sheer lacy dresses in beige and peach hues. And her top style trademark: wearing her long, blonde tresses down and her sweetest smile.
3. One Direction Boys
Even tween boys need some parent-approved grooming too! And the clean, preppy look of One Direction will always be parent-friendly. They have started the varsity jacket revolution and brought back the colored jeans into the limelight. Oh and their loafers are a fresh and much needed breather from the kicks generation.
So there! Hope in humanity and Hollywood fashion has just been restored! Take a cue from these celebs the next time you go tween outfit shopping. Have fun!
On November 7, 2012 at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York, Victoria’s Secret models run through the array of themes exhibited during the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Between wands, over-sized wings and a $2.5 million jeweled “floral fantasy bra,” Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and the rest of the beautiful angels strutted the catwalk tonight in New York. And they were joined by the musical sounds of Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
The show won’t be televised until Dec. 4 on CBS, but you can sneak a peek at all of the outrageous lingerie right now!
Lip color is back in a big way, but deciding when to wear it can be tricky—not to mention the challenge of choosing a color! Follow these celeb-inspired tips on how to wear lipstick and your pout will always look perfect — and incredibly sexy.
Pair It With Liquid Liner
Taylor Swift is the queen of this quick makeup look. Apply a sweep of liquid liner and a rich lip, and you’re ready for a night out.
Colors to try: Pinks and reds with purple and blue undertones.
Create A Classic Look
Lipstick looks fab with simple separates. Here, Demi Lovato pairs a crimson pout with a white button down and a leather jacket.
Colors to try: Rich ruby to raspberry.
Mix Bright Hues
Your lipstick does not need to match your top. In fact, it will look even better if the colors contrast a little. We love Julianne Hough‘s turquoise-raspberry combo.
Colors to try: Play with different options depending on what you’re wearing.
Paris Hilton or Katherine Heigl in a leather trim cape from Rachel Zoe. Who wore it better? Would you pair it with Heigl’s leopard print ankle boots or Hilton’s knee-high black leather boots?
Who wore this blue Victoria Beckham dress better? Eva Longoria with black pumps or Tamara Ecclestone with animal print pumps?
I’m so excited for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! The show has actually been taped last November 09, held in New York at the Lexington Avenue Armory, and it will be aired on CBS this coming November 29, Tuesday.
