Yom Tov Shopping for Your Teenage Daughter
Pesach is almost upon us (I know, it’s scary to think about!) and that means time to outfit our families for Yom Tov. The local stores have an extensive selection of beautiful tznius clothing. But if you are like me and you don’t want to cram into an overcrowded store with your cranky teens, or maybe you or your daughter would like something unique, then this blog is a must read for you.
When buying dresses for high school age girls my requirements are: color, fit, price and a bit of fun. Below I have gathered a collection of appropriate, colorful, and interesting dresses at under $250.
They are from Anthropologie one of my favorite websites for finding unique clothing. Anthropologie has an amazing return policy, so don’t overthink it, just order it, the good stuff goes quickly. Always read the reviews to get an idea on sizing, though I find most of their clothing to run true to generous sizing. They also carry petites which is really helpful for smaller girls, the waist will hit right, and you won’t need to pay for hemming.
This dress is what I call a magic dress it looks good on almost everyone. I posted it here in a cotton print which I think is fun for a teen girl. It also comes in a silky solid color, and in a crepe print.
I absolutely love this dress; I bought it for my own daughter. The colors are soft and elegant and it has a very classy look about it. This dress looks like it costs more than it does. I would say this dress is for an older teen, or even for yourself as an easy Shabbos dress, something you can wear all afternoon.
This dress is elegant and vibrant can be worn for a post seminary or older high school girl (or for you!). It would look nice with a belt too.
This dress is a super thin knit, it comes with the slip dress underneath (though you will need a shell with sleeves). It is detailed and sharp, can be worn for a simcha as well.
This dress screams easy breezy summer style. It’s airy, cute, fun, and comfy for long Shabbos afternoons.
This dress is a no brainer! The price is right, it has interesting details and an asymmetrical hemline. Which will look good on multiple types of figures.
This dress goes slightly over the $250s threshold (sorry), but I had to post it. I love the soft paisley print and the tiered bottom. It gives off a bit of a Zimmermann vibe (only a lot cheaper), and it’s elegant and classy. I think it is worth the price.
This dress is sharp and so cute. I love the swing and the bold flowers. It can work nicely for a thin girl who likes a swingier dress as well as someone with a fuller figure. It can of course be worn for women though I would style it as an everyday dress in that case.
Good Luck shopping for your daughters! And don’t forget about yourself.
