Ever wondered how to gradually dress more feminine? Ever wondered how to dress feminine, but keeping your rock chic look? Well, let’s then go through a couple of tips I believe are essential to be understood in this process. I know we all love our baggy stuff to hide imperfections or that sometime we may seem scary or intimidating to dress in a way we’re not comfortable with but trust me since autumn is around the corner, it will be a snap for you to incorporate more feminine pieces into your everyday look.
1. Wear lighter coloured clothing
This includes neutrals, beiges, blush pink, light grey and brown tones. Lighter coloured clothing brightens up your look and makes you look more feminine and youthful. If you don’t wear a lot of neutrals, creams or blush pinks, try it out and see how you feel. It’s a way to instantly look more feminine.
2. Soft, natural makeup

Even though I am a certified makeup artist, I tend to do my own makeup in less then 10-15 minutes a day. Because GIRL IS BUSY ♀️ Lots of girls think, great makeup takes a lot of time, effort and money, but that’s not true. When you find your favourite products, you don’t need to waste your life trying to look good. Neither your money, because your faves will stay with you for years. Use your #makeup besties every day and glow! ♥️ #beautyblogger #makeupblogger #quickmakeup #easymakeup
Softer, more natural makeup looks much more feminine than a heavy, full-on, snatched makeup look. Personally, I don’t like dark lips. I find it to be a more mature look and don’t think it looks flattering on most people. Sure, a red lip can look great so if you are going for that then keep everything else soft. The same thing goes for the eyes. If you are doing a smoky eye, then keep the lips light and neutral.
3. Feminine details on clothing
Look for clothing that has ruffles, pearls, balloon sleeves, fluted sleeves, broderie Anglaise, lace and other feminine details. These details have been very on-trend in 2018 & 2019 so those pieces of clothing are not hard to find. They really elevate your look and make you appear more feminine.
4. Wear skirts
Incorporate more skirts into your day-to-day outfits whether it be for work, school, casual day time or night outs. You can wear midi, mini or long skirts. They all work well and can be styled to suit the occasion. I find skirts really comfortable to wear especially ones with elasticized waistlines. They are easy to layer over leggings in the wintertime and fun to wear. Explore various lengths and materials. If you wear a lot of pants, invest in a skirt that makes you feel fabulous.
5. Accentuate your waist and curves
This can mean wearing a belt to cinch in your waist, wearing high-waisted pants to accentuate the smallest part of your waist. If you prefer to focus on another part of your body, such as your chest or bottom, then choose to clothe to accentuate those parts of your body in the most flattering way.
6. Highlight one part of your body and show a bit of skin
This could be your neck, your shoulders, your back, legs, a bid of midriff. The key is not to show too much skin and just to focus on one area of your body only. You want to look elegant.
7. Accessorize with fine and delicate jewellery
I love the rose gold earrings but certainly, any colour will do. Fine and delicate jewellery tends to look classier and is easier to style than bold statement pieces. Delicate jewellery is a classic style that will not go out of fashion. Adding earrings, stacking rings, bracelets or necklaces makes it look like you’ve given some thought to your outfit and will instantly elevate your style to make you look more feminine.
8. Textured hair
Adding soft waves or loose curls to your hair will make you appear more feminine as well. It softens your face and overall look. Straight hair can look very chic, but it’s an edgier look. If you want to appear and look more feminine, then take a curling wand or iron and add some texture to your hair.
9. Choose shoes with almond or pointy toe
These will look more feminine. Shoes with a round or square toe have a more casual look to them and definitely don’t look as chic. I also like to look for some details in my shoes, whether it be an embossed pattern or some cool details on the shoe. I do like to have light coloured shoes as well as dark ones to go with various outfits.
10. Monochromatic head to toe
An all beige, or all white, or all blush pink outfit looks so chic sleek and feminine. I love this look. It’s very trendy right now. Forget the all-black clothing look, try wearing head to toe whites, beige or blush pink. This look stands out as not many people are opting for lighter coloured clothing head to toe. It looks expensive, feminine and classy.
