Athletic sneakers with an otherwise decent looking outfit. Sneakers are for the gym, there are many cute, comfortable shoes out there for running around and doing errands.
No, they don't sell flesh-colored bras in every size. Many of us are stuck with white only.
There may be a reason for the sneakers, like foot problems. And there are VERY FEW cute, comfortable shoes for those of us with with extra-wide feet. Heck, forget cute, even comfortable ones are hard to find!
Have to agree with you on the rest.

And...what is a "muffin top???"

A muffin top is that roll of fat that sits at your waist band and either jiggles like jello along with your spare tire in the front jiggling for all it's worth or is well behaved and stands at attention...either way it's not attractive.

It's probably a generational thing for me. (and I never had girls; I raised two boys.)
I realize that 12 year olds now are not the 12 year olds of 40 years ago.
For me, my big event when I turned 12 was to be allowed to shave my legs and get my ears pierced.
But I do think that sexualized clothing for young girls is an unfortunate development (no pun intended.)
I suppose visible pantylines are undesirable, but can someone explain to me why bra straps displayed on purpose?
Those Bratz padded training bras are a bit silly, too. But then those Bratz themselves are like little mini-skanks.
I think this is the paradox/timeline of fashion:
The spectrum of being presentable to provocative back to being presentable again.

Oh, can I add....too much perfume? And the worst, too much perfume on top of body odor or cigarette smoke. Yuck.

I'm raising 5 girls and believe me it's not easy finding proper outfits for them. And I totally agree that a 12 yr old shouldn't be dressing like an 18 yr old....then again an 18 yr old shouldn't showing the world all that God gave her just because she can. My girls are modest..they dont' want to show their cracks or cleavage....yet it's hard to find clothes that fit them that dont' show cracks or cleavage. I'm sick of looking at little girls...under 12..wearing these adult looking baby doll shirts....it's gross...and then pairing it with a wedge??!! Too much.

I dont' understand the bra strap thing either.....they sell bras that you can wear with tank tops that dont' show the straps.

I've seen some of the Braztz line and some of the Mary Kate and Ashley stuff..skank is right. Why dress a young girl like that? Why?

Everyone has covered this topic beautifully. I do want to stress that I see way, way too much cleavage.

I see this way too often. Saw on the St. Louis news today a women wearing a tank top, mini mini skirt and, well, many of her 'pounds' showed where they shouldn't have. And this was at an awards dinner. I'm sure she thought that she appeared 'dressed', however, it was sad to see.

Stomachs should be covered! I have never seen a pretty stomach.

Shoes with the front covered and the heel out is ugly. The heel is the ugliest part of the foot, why stick it out and cover the rest?

I would say pretty much anything you see Britney Spears wearing would be a fashion no-no.
