Happy New Year!
I’m really excited about this year, I feel it’s going to be Amazing!
I’ve been working on a new project for months and now it’s almost ready! And I’m so excited to see it come to life.
I’ll share more news soon ;)
But now let’s get to today’s subject: Feminine Style!
Do you feel like your style is too casual/sporty?
Do you mostly wear trousers and shirts to work?
Many women want to know how to have a more feminine style, usually because they dress too casual (sneakers, t-shirts, jeans) or too masculine (pants and shirts).
But making your style more feminine is really easy. The secret is to start wearing more items that are exclusive to women.
9 Ways to Be More Feminine
1. Wear some Makeup
Men don’t wear it so when you put on some makeup you instantly look more feminine: you can wear only mascara and gloss, nothing too fancy.
2. Style your Hair
Long hair looks much more feminine than short hair. To look more feminine you can also try different hair styles (like waves, a loose bun, a braid) or wear hair accessories.
3. Wear Feminine Clothes
Choose feminine clothes: skirts, dresses or blouses are pieces that men don’t wear and that make you look more feminine. You can see some examples in the end of the post.
4. Go for Feminine Shoes
High heels make any outfit more feminine. But there are flat shoes that give the same effect, like ballet flats and sandals. Shoes that men also wear (mocassins, oxfords, boots), especially if they are flat, look more masculine.
5. Wear Feminine Accessories
Men also wear accessories but women accessories are quite different. You only need to choose the ones with a feminine style (that men wouldn’t wear for sure): earrings, necklaces, bracelets, scarfs, hats.
Bags are also mostly used by women, and the more embellishments they have, the more feminine they look.
6. Choose pieces with Feminine Details
The details in some pieces (like embellishments, fabric, style or color) make all the difference.
- Embellishments: sequins, feathers, shimmer, bows, ruffles
- Fabrics: lace, embroidery
- Style: a style used only by women like an asymmetric top.
- Color: colorful or patterned pieces also may help (most men wear discreet colors and patterns). Pink is the most feminine color.
7. Try Nail Polish
Beautiful, painted nails look super feminine, especially if you wear pink or red.
8. Show Your Feminine Body
Another way to look more feminine is to like your body and show your feminine curves. You need to know the right way to flatter and “show” your body (without revealing too much).
You can wear V-necks, U-necks or other different necklines; mini skirts or dresses; pieces that show your waist like waisted dresses or coats; tight pants like skinnys.
9. Don’t wear too much Volume
You also need to know how to wear pieces with volume: if you combine large pieces with fit ones you will balance your figure and create a more feminine look. An outfit with many large pieces will make you look sloppy and less elegant.
After all this I’m feeling a little sorry for men… so many things that they just can’t wear!
To help you choose what to wear, here are some suggestions and photos of current styles:
- Pleated skirts
- Full skirts
- Flowy skirts
- Leather skirts
(if you’re wearing flats your skirts should end above your knees, so you look taller)
- Tube dresses
- Waisted dresses (with a relaxed style)
- Large dresses
(if you’re wearing flats, go for mini dresses)
- Silk blouses
- Flowy fabrics
- Nude or bright tones
- Feminine patterns
