suits for teen girls?

DD is attending the presidential inauguration. The guidelines for the program she is attending say that she is to wear the following: "nice slacks/skirt and a blouse, or suit/pantsuit and blouse and conservative dress shoes."


Where do we find such an outfit for a girl this age? She definitely wants the skirt option because she hates dress pants.


I don't want to break the bank and I want something she will actually want to wear again!

Pretty much any juniors department in any department store will have mix and match suit options.

Wet Seal has some nice black pencil skirts and some dressy blouses.You might also find some nice skirts and blouses in H and M,or Forever 21.Macy may have some stuff too in the Missy dept as opposed to the jr dept,since the jr dept tends to carry dressier semi formal type dress,but I have seen skitrts there.You can also took in the missy dept in jc penny.Wet Seal does carry xs and 0's if that is the size you need.H and M starts at size 2.

Kohls junior dept has a large selection of nice dress slacks and skirts, and priced very reasonable.

Thanks so much for your suggestions. I think I'll give her a gift card to Macy's for Christmas, and we can hit the mall over Christmas break to buy her outfit. We've tried Kohl's but ours doesn't have a very good selection except for jeans and sweaters.


The good thing is that she's a size 6 or 8 (nicer brands run larger), which is pretty average, so stores have a lot in these sizes.

You know, I have never been to an H&M. I think there's one in Boston or somewhere nearby because I've heard other moms

You should be able to find a lot of stuff in those size your dd is a great size.Gabby likes Macy'and H anM but we can not buy bottoms there becasue they start at a 1 or a 2 and Gab is still a 0.H and M sells a lot of work type clothing.How exciting that your dd gets to attnded the innuguration.
