Hi...I am getting desperate trying to find skirts for my oldest (going into 7th grade) to wear to school. They can wear anything as long as it is khaki (tan) in color. The girls cannot wear skorts so skirts with little shorts under are a no-no. Can anyone help by steering me where to look? I've tried the old standby's Old Navy and Gap...but those aren't hip enough...too little girl. I've also been to Abercrombie (got her pants there) and American Eagle. I am really out of ideas. She is either a 14slim (Abercrombie is perfect) or 00 in AE. HELP!

What about Banana Republic or Ann Taylor? Or maybe those are too mature ??

Banana won't fit her (I wear their size 0...which is really a 2), and I'll have to look in Ann Taylor, although that may be dangerous for me.

Thank you for the suggestions. You are right...she is entering a difficult age. She is almost 12 and is already 5'2" and wears a ladies sized 8 shoe. I have the shoes covered, but the clothes are much more difficult. I'm going to hit the mall tomorrow.

Gosh, you guys are teeny!!! Ann Taylor's clothes always looked really small to me. I know some tiny girls who have been able to wear their clothes. The only other brand I can think of that is tiny is Juicy. Their things run really small, don't they?

I saw a news special once on how sizes at Gap and stores like that now a days inflate their sizes... meaning what used to be a size 6 now is size 8 and so on. I generally wear size 2 or 4 depending on the store and type of clothing but I know I am not that small!!! I bet the food industry is behind all this... but this is all off the topic.

My daughters like many of the places that have been mentioned already, but they also like Anthropologie.com


Anthropologie has retail stores, but none near us, so they do some shopping via the catalog.

This is the mother in me speaking - I think the stuff from J Crew, Banana Republic, etc. is very cute.  I am usually disgusted that people pay the money for the clothes from Abercrombie.  TO ME most of it looks like it came from the rag bag.  And I just can't stand being in the store because of the loud music.  My daughter's exboyfriend worked for A&F and said that the music was loud on purpose to encourage you to get in, make your selection, and get out.  That is the end of the 40 something editorial comment.  LOL

I couldn't agree more! I cannot stand the loud music....and the price they expect for a pair of jeans that look like the rejects from the GoodWill pile.....don't get me started. It is so hard to find appropriate clothing for her age. She is a skinny minnie and unfortunately, everything is either cut too large (children's sizes) or inappropriate for a 12 year old. I think I'm going to have to resort to having clothes made because I am having a hard time. I am most in need of skirts, and I've tried Land's End, LLBean, JCrew..to no avail. I've looked at those stores mentioned in this thread, but nothing on-line that looks appropriate. I think I'm going to have to spend a day at the mall (which I hate to do) to do a search and find mission. Thanks again to everyone, and please please keep me in mind if you see any cute khaki skirts!
