Is it appropriate for my daughter to wear abercrombie?

Before she my daughter became a tween, The Children's Place has always been my go-to destination for clothes. I don't really see a problem with still shopping there, but my daughter claims it is 'babyish' and begs me to take her to abercrombie, aeropostale, hollister, etc. I've always said no, due to the exterior of those stores it seems sexual and definitely not for tweens. What do you think? If abercrombie isn't appropriate to you, can you list some other brands?

Abercrombie isn't too mature, but the prices are a little much for my liking (40 bucks for shorts is ridiculous) My mom has always let me buy my own clothes since I had my own money, so I never really shopped there when I was a tween (now that I'm 16 and have a job, I do for special occasions)

Some other stores and brands I would reccomend are, in order of price:

High Price:
Macy's, Justice, PacSun, Urban Outfitters, Maurices, Victoria's Secret

Medium Price:
Wet Seal, Hot Topic, Belk, JCPenney, Target, American Eagle, Aeropostale

Low Price:
Forever 21, LoveCulture, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross

It's just a clothing brand. My only argument for not shopping at stores like that is how long will they be able to wear it. Those stores are not cheap! If she's done growing, spending the extra money would be ok since it would be something she could wear for a while. If she's still growing, I wouldn't waste the money just yet or maybe just indulge in one pair of jeans. Some close you'll find there will be more revealing, don't buy them. You can buy revealing clothing at almost any retail clothing store, it's just what you feel comfortable with her wearing.
