Question: How can I dress more girly if I’m a tomboy?
Answer: Being a tomboy in the fashion world seems like a frightening thing, but it doesn’t have to be! There are countless ways you can add a feminine touch to your tomboyish nature (without being too shocking).
One way to do this is to accessorize. Simple accessories can turn a boyish look into something feminine and fabulous. For example: a casual white t-shirt and jeans. Add some silver hoops and stack some necklaces. Swap the sneakers for a pair of wedges and you have transformed your look.
Skirts can be kind of overwhelming especially the frilly kind. However, do not be afraid to give them a shot. A pleated skirt will make any look more feminine. Pair the skirt with a simple t-shirt or a dark colored blouse. This will balance out the look and not be too over the top feminine. As for shoes, wear some simple oxfords or a pair of loafers if heels are too much. This look will maintain who you are, but still bring out your inner girl.
As for dresses, vouch for a shirt dress. They aren’t over-the-top, yet they still pass as a dress — aka one of the most girly pieces of clothing out there. Pick a denim or a neutral color like tan, black or forrest green. Add a simple necklace and some dangly earrings, and you have yourself an outfit. Take some risks and add a fun pair of heels or a patterned headband.
There are so many ways to add femininity to your look. Just start out small and wear what you feel comfortable in. Always remember to maintain who you are and to radiate that through your own personal style.
