What I DO know about Tween Fashion

I do know I don't like it when Tweens dress up like their older teen counterparts. Can't we ease into it? There must be a happy fashion place where both pre-teens and their parents feel comfortable.

Given the actual label of "tween", shouldn't the styles reflect a stage of clothes in-between childhood and adolescence? Sweet combined with sassy? Comfort blended with more form-fitting cuts? Clothes that give tweens the ability to both hang out and run around?

That said, this is where I'll keep you posted on Tween Trends - the good, the bad and the ugly (and perhaps the inappropriate, so you're at least in-the-know). 

And if you have anything to contribute please, by all means, let me know. It's hard to keep up with this ever-changing crowd!
