I don't have a style. And the reason I don't have a style is because when I'm shopping I feel like everyone is watching me and I freak out and run out of the place. I want to buy cute clothes but I start to panic and get clothes I don't really like just so I can get out of there. My mom doesn't understand when I tell her I just want to go alone because being with my family members makes me feel even more anxious. I don't know how to stop it.

I get the same way. I make my father go to another side of the store, or go get the other things he needs while I look. I need time to look at each piece by myself in the quiet. The only place I am comfortable at despite other customers being around em is hot topic. Because the music's so loud no one can hear you, so they rarely talk to you.
Social anxiety is a sucky thing - but, what has helped is ONLINE shopping, a whole lot. If you get a certain amount of money from your mother to shop, ask her to put it on a visa gift card. You can use that online to shop for clothing. If you aren't sure if something will fit, take your own measurements, and then look at the measurements on the websites measurement chart. You can almost always send things back as well if they don't fit. You don't need to talk to anyone when you shop online - you can just sit there and look at all the clothing and decide, then check out and wait 5-7 days for your clothing. Sites like forever21 usually ship even quicker. My stuff comes in 2-3 days.
Honestly, I love shopping in malls and such, but online makes me more comfortable.0
