Purchasing little girl’s clothing doesn’t have to be difficult anymore. You may want to dress your daughter and pick out all her outfits, but after age seven or so she may want to be free to experiment with new options, such as different colors and styles. Allowing her to experiment can be a great way to bond with her and learn more about her likes and dislikes.
Little girls want to grow up. Your daughter has probably been caught in your makeup bag or with your high heels on at some point and you probably thought this was funny or cute. However, it can be difficult to let them go. Instead, go shopping with her and let her choose. You may silently cringe, but as long as the clothing is age appropriate, you can find items that you both can agree on. Remember if it makes her happy, she will be exude more confidence.
You may be content for your little girl to wear cute dresses and pigtails for the rest of her life, but she won’t be. She is going to want fashionable pieces like shorts and pants like the other kids at her school and in her community. Therefore, allowing her to choose can be helpful. If you insist that she wear nice clothing for religious services or something else, compromise. Allow her to pick something, as long as you get to choose something, as well. This way, you will both be happy, because she gets to choose something (that you find appropriate for a girl her age) and you get to have her look nice for special occasions.
Not every girl wants to be the frilly-don’t-get-my-dress-dirty type of girl. It can be difficult to get girls to wear pretty dresses to school, because her classmates aren’t wearing those outfits. It can also be difficult to get them to wear these dresses in the summer because she may not feel comfortable.
However, if this is something you want for your daughter, try to talk her into them by offering to let her wear lip gloss or get a new hair clip.
