A style blogger behind the Poor Little It Girl blog, Cathy Anderson is a New York-based blogger known for her very feminine, girly and classic style. She loves to keep things simple with easy silhouettes and pieces that she can mix and match together, but always enjoys a bold accessory like a statement necklace, a hat, or shoes.
Like Cathy, you may start mixing-and-matching your feminine accessories with the color of your outfit. Think of hats, sunglasses, bags, shoes, scarf, and jewelry that can accentuate your femininity. Cathy creatively matched the color of her clutch with the color of her dress and wore a floppy pink hat with a pink lace dress and just polished her looks with nude sandals. Though belts are small to be a statement piece, Cathy tastefully paired her pink coat with a pink belt that creates a statement. Also, a black-and-white structured bag goes well in a black-and-white blouse even with denim jeans.
If you feel overwhelmed by matching colors with your ensembles and accessories, then match the color of your prints with any of your accessories. This look is more subtle yet complementing. Like Cathy, you may wear pink shoes to match with your floral print blouse in pink color; or blue shoes to pair with your blue polka dots pants. Red sunglasses and red sandals look great with a striped shirt in red too. Just keep the rest of your outfit neutral to avoid color clashing.
The same rule applies when wearing separates like a blouse and skirt, and a shirt and jeans. Like Cathy, you may want to pair your pink blouse with a floral print tulip skirt in the same color; or a white-and-blue checkered blouse with blue skinny jeans. Always keep your accessories neutral to blend with the colored pieces.
An effortless way to dress feminine is to opt for sexy cuts of clothing without looking provocative. Like Cathy, you may opt for a decent crop top paired with a high waist skirt; a sleeveless dress in A-line style, or even a cut-out dress in a symmetrical design. Just polish your looks with feminine accessories like a hat, clutch, and feminine shoes.
Pastels are a terrific choice if you wish to add a pop of color and femininity to your style. Since pastels go wonderfully with other pastels, wearing two or more pastel colors at the same time will give a warm and relaxed look. If you’re not a fan of pastels, then you may pair your feminine colors with darker ones. For instance, Cathy paired her pink blouse with red pants. A purple blouse with a pink skirt as well as a pink bow-tie blouse with polka dots skirt looks feminine too.
For a timeless classic style, you may try to find delicate fabrics such as satin, wool, chiffon, lace, linen, velvet and such for a more feminine and chic style. Even in a black-and-white combination, you’ll still look feminine by opting for a cut-out design skirt like Cathy did. A black lace skirt will blend well with a feminine blouse in pink shade as well.
As you can see, tastefully mixing-and-matching your feminine ensembles will create a feminine and modern looks you’re aiming for. Just be playful with your ensembles and make advantage of the colors and prints to bring out the femininity in your street looks.
