Dressing femininely has become sort of a taboo lately. I’m not sure if it’s the assumed difficulty of creating the outfit or if it’s because most girls choose to be comfortable and casual. What strikes me is that being feminine doesn’t have to mean uncomfortable. Now, the definition of comfortable varies extraordinarily. I don’t particularly find heels comfortable, but what comforts me is that I look amazing in them. There’s an uplifting feeling when I wear soft shades of pink and choose delicate fabrics that drape off my body in flirtatious ways. Ruffles and lace are pleasing to the eye and are incredibly feminine.
Dressing this way is often considered “prim and proper,” or in other words, “pompous and pretentious.” Why? Hollywood perhaps. It’s a false label that’s killing the style. There’s nothing wrong with being a jeans and t-shirt type of girl. It’s an approachable and relatable type of style.
Throw away any apprehension regarding the stereotype of dressing in a ladylike fashion. Try that eyelet blouse you bought for Easter over some skinny jeans. Or how about a sexy ruffled mini skirt paired with a lightweight cardigan and flats or heels? (See above)
I know it’s tough to put away the Uggs and sweats, but try it!
