Teen/tweens are probably my #1 MOST requested, and more difficult-to-buy-for group for back to school, gift guides, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale guides – you name it! People are always baffled by tweens and teens, including ME.
I’ve experienced this more with Anabelle – and I feel like, well, she doesn’t really fit into the little girls’ department anymore, but she’s not old enough for the women's department yet, she’s like right in between. BUT I'm thrilled that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has some really good “Big Girl” options this year, so here's your quick guide to shopping for all the teens/tweens in your life!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tween top pick: Zella Supersoft Long Sleeve
Ani is all about comfort and softness, and this Zella long sleeve top is super duper cozy soft! It's such a comfy knit top that can be worn to lounge, but it also can be dressed up with jeans because of the really cute front twist. It's only $18.90 right now, usually $29!
Zella Supersoft Pocket Joggers
Speaking about comfort and cozy soft clothes – THESE joggers are super soft, just like its name!! A good pair of joggers is always a good idea for your tweens while they lounge, do homework, or even to wear to school. These look so cute with the Zella long sleeve twist top, too! A cozy combo for sure. Get these joggers for only $22.90 right now ($35 after sale).
Lettuce Hem Knit Top
These lettuce hemmed ribbed tops are the CUTEST for layering with overalls, cardigans, or just with some cute pants. This is a great staple for the school year, plus there are so many cute colors on sale! Only $15.90.
Button Wrap Skirt
Let's talk about this DARLING plaid button skirt. How cute?!?! It comes in these two navy and brown colors – both so cute with a sweater or collared blouse! Fits true to size and super flattering. Normally $45, but only $28.99 right now during the Sale!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tween top pick: Print Swing Dress
We chose this swing dress for Ani from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tween items, because first of all, the pattern and color is so cute and second, it's such a comfortable fabric that hangs very nicely to give a fun swing effect when you wear it! It's such a great versatile dress option for her wardrobe and she's all about comfort, so this is a win-win. Only $24 right now!
High Pile Fleece Shacket
This fleece shacket… *heart eyes*!! I want this in MY size! It's the perfect fleece color and such a darling layering piece to wear with jeans, leggings, or over a dress. Ani will get a lot of use out of this during the chillier fall/winter months! On sale for $38 ($59 after sale)!
Wide leg denim overalls
Wide Leg Denim Overalls (low stock): These wide leg overalls give off all of the cool-kid vibes without lacking any comfort! Ani LOVES these and they look so cute with a short or long sleeve tee underneath with some sneakers. It's such a cute stonewashed black and the denim is superrrr stretchy! Right now they're only $34.90 ($55 after the sale!)
The Abigail Denim Skirt
The Abigail Denim Skirt (low stock): A good denim skirt is sure to be a constant rotation in a tween's wardrobe, and we found the perfect one while shopping for Ani! This denim has extra stretch to it so it's still slimming but stretchy enough to still run around and play in. Ani really likes the worn-in, faded appeal to the denim and it's just a super staple piece that can go with so many different style blouses, t-shirts or crew necks. On sale for $29 (normally $39)!
Puff Sleeve Sweater
Lefile Puff Sleeve Sweater (low stock): This puff sleeve sweater is darling! We grabbed this lightweight sweater to pair with Ani's denim skirt. It's the perfect transitional piece that works great during the warmer months but would be perfect during the fall with so many different types of bottoms. At $39 this sweater isn't included in the anniversary sale but is a great price point that's perfect for my tween!
