5 Types of Dresses for 10, 11, and 12-Year-Old Girls

1. Shirtdress

Shirtdresses are so comfortable and trendy. They’re the perfect everyday dress for classic girls.


2. Skater Dress

Skater or fit-and-flare dresses are seriously cute for the sporty girl. Clothes for 10-year-old girls don’t get much easier to style than this.


3. Maxi Dress

We love full-length dresses for 10 and 11-year-old girls because they can be dressed up or down for just about any occasion.


4. High/Low Dress

These dresses are the best of both worlds. Because they’re high at the front, they’re easy to move in, and the low back hemline adds style, and a bit of extra coverage.


5. Dressy Dress

These dresses are great for special occasions & red carpet events.


5 Occasions Your Girl Will Love Wearing Dresses For (Plus Styling Tips)

Who doesn’t love wearing cute clothes or a beautiful dress? For 10-year-olds and up who are just starting to notice and experiment with their style, each of these occasions make for the perfect opportunity to dress up!


Music Recital

Help your girl get excited for her big recital with a new dress. That way, she can look and feel her best – and then play her best!


School Presentation

Every 10, 11, and 12-year-old girl’s clothes should include at least one outfit suitable for a school presentation. A dress is perfect because it’ll make her feel a bit more dressed up than usual.


Friends’ Parties

Cute clothes for 10 and 11-year-olds (and older) are non-negotiable when there’s a birthday party to go to every couple of weeks! Make sure your girl has 2-3 cute party dresses so she can switch up her outfit each time.


Family Get-Togethers

Get your girl ready for family get-togethers with a super cute dress! Just be prepared for Great Aunt Mabel to say loudly, “Ohh my, isn’t she growing up fast?”


Everyday Fun

Dresses aren’t just for special occasions – they’re so wearable and comfortable that your girl might want to wear a dress every day. And that’s completely okay, too!
