Tweens are aware of the changes in seasons and how they translate into new clothes. Though so young, they seem to know what trends are in and out faster than you and they won’t let anything you say ruin their calling for style. Here are some favorites for spring for tween girls and young teens.
The military look is big this spring and The Children’s Place is on top of it with this cotton twill Utility Jacket. It’s lightly peached for softness and has plenty of zip and snap closure pockets along with a rib-knit waistband. Pair it with the camouflage Smocked Skirt in cotton-voile for a tough but feminine show-stopper.

For spring, Justin Boots has a pair of cute, creamy Huesa Liega Cowboy Boots with a flowery design that you can pair with this season’s hip military looks. The insole J-Flex flexible comfort system ™ with removable orthotic inserts make these boots extremely comfortable for growing girls. For the youngest fashionistas, check out the new style for spring in pink camouflage.
