  • Why can't she just wear jeans? I'm a major jeans girl myself. I hate skirts and dresses, and my idea of dressing up is putting on a nice top with my jeans. I say let her wear what she's comfortable wearing (within reason, of course).

  • What's wrong with jeans? As long as you approve of their appearanc (not torn, raggedy, dirty, etc). My daughter lived in jeans always.....she went to college for fashion design, and is not a lead designer for a'd never know it by her clothing......jeans jeans jeans.

  • Yes, my daughter was like that, she is now 13 and asking for diffrent colors, thank goodness.

    As long as they are clean, let her wear the jeans, it takes about 2 years, now I don't say anything, she has alot of blue jeans. She asked for color ones recently, FINALLY-I don't say anything I am like ok. :)

  • Some people just like jeans better, as long as they're decent she's old enough to choose her own clothes.

  • Let her choose. If that is what she wants to wear, let her.

  • Just give up! : ) My niece just turned 12 and all she ever wears is jeans. As long as they are presentable, I say let her wear them.

  • Let her be her. You wear what you want but let her wear what makes her feel good. Why do you buy things you know she won't wear? That's just wasteful.
