I get it OP.
I really don’t think any comment is needed about anyone’s clothing choice, let alone a teen girl. But as a parent of a teen, I also understand I don’t always stick to what I know I should be doing!
i am not a fan of leggings. I have never really bought them for my kid (other than exercise pants type ones) so she does not wear them now. I have seen plenty of people that look bad in them, though of course do not feel the need to tell them. Things like way too tight, see undies underneath them, see through material. Our school has also banned them, not sure what rational they used, i figure looks bad does not cut it!
i have only skimmed the thread, but what is so bad about people that help you create a wardrobe that suits them? I have not used their services, as I don’t care that much around how I look. I think black actually washes me out. I have no clue what suits me or does not suit me. If I was keen to update my wardrobe and wanted to find things thst really suited me, I don’t have a problem with using their service. I don’t have any natural abilities when it comes to fashion, so why would I not consult people who know what they were doing if I was keen to learn?

My girls wear leggings, it's just a different style of pants.
The only thing that DH and I insist on is that they aren't too thin (see-through) and no holes in the bums!
Our girls grew up in leggings (so comfy for little ones) and have never really progressed to jeans, they find them uncomfortable (which they are compared to leggings)
this is my approach too.
I'm another - not much can be done. As long as they are thick enough to not show undies or stretch see-through at the top.
I have told DD my personal 'fashion rule' - either tight bottoms (leggings, fitness pants) and loose top, or tight tops and loose bottoms. Both tight looks terrible on me, and both loose makes me look short, fat and stumpy.
She tends to do the same now - but she's 15, tall and lithe.
Although DD1 can definitely wear tight top and bottom if she wanted to, but that's not her style (well, not so far).
ha ha, you're joking, right?
Isn’t society desensitised to the female shape by now?
