Buying clothes can be such a pain if you are a tween. You must find the right balance between childish and teen. And no two girls are the same so finding clothes that suit you is a struggle on its own. Clothes are so expensive these days and allowances never cover the costs. I could go on forever complaining about clothes but my Aunty always tells me, "don't look for problems, think of solutions." So I have done some research (and by that I mean shopping!) and come up with a list of top 11 clothing stores for tween girls. These are my personal favourites, but if you think any shops that I didn't mention, please leave it in the comments.
Pavement offers a rage of beautiful clothes for kids aged 8-16. The shop has many stylish items that won't brake your piggy bank. This is my favourite shop because there is a wide variety and the accessories are really cute. If you ever find yourself in there be sure to check out the clearance section. I recently bought a coat from there that was originally $100 and I got it for $20. Bargain!
Best place for: accessories
Myer is a bit more expensive but the clothes are stunning! My favourite brands from Myer are Tilli and Bardot Junior. You must check out the sale because you can save lots.
Best place for: quality
If you need an essential or don't want to spend to much this is the shop for you. I love Target because every thing is so cheap! You can buy an entire wardrobe for under $30.
Best place for: basics
Mr Price is very cheap and hipster. Everything is funky and trendy. I got some great deals in this shop. It has a wide rage of sizes which is great for petite and plus size girls. The they shoes are very pretty and fashionable.

5. City Beach
I buy all my bikinis from here. If you love the beach life this is the shop for you. It is a bit pricey but the quality is top notch. You can find all your favourite beach brands here including Billabong and Rip Curl.
Best place for: bathers
6. Sports Girl
This store is a bit more grown up, but I love the beauty range. I could spend hours trying on skirts and testing nail polish. Sports Girl is not too expensive but I end up spending about $60 in there because I want everything in that shop!
Best place for: makeup
7. Free by cotton on
Great brand. I love the active range, although the sizes are quite petite.
Best place for: active wear
8. Cotton On
A more grown-up version of free by cotton on. Cotton On clothes have a basic casual style, and go with everything. This shop is not expensive. I love the T shirts they sell.
Best place for: cool t shirts
A very unique and expensive shop. The clothes are smart and original. I love the shoes. I'd usually spend about $30 in here.
Best place for: unique clothes
10. Top Shop
Top Shop is awesome. The clothes are trendy and have a young feel. A mix of hip and chic.
Best place for: trends
11. The Salvation Army
Saved the best till last. The Salvation Army (Salvos) is a charity shop. I love charity shops because you never know what you will find. As a bonus all the money goes to help needy families and you can get some awesome vintage original bargains.
