Extravagant, daring and original, girly fashion may be one of the trickiest styles to pull off as you may feel a bit quirky and childlike. The mind behind “Macademian Girl” blog, Tamara Perea is a Poland-based fashion blogger known for her quirky and girly ways of wearing colors and prints. Since looking girly comes naturally to her, keep on reading for fashion inspirations on wearing colors and prints with a girly twist.
If you’re not confident enough to plunge into the girly looks, you may start small by incorporating girly accessories and work your way up. Whether it’s a bag, sunglasses, necklace, belts, clutch, flats, heels, or boots, try finding them in bright and girly colors like pink, purple, bright red, neon yellow, orange, bright green, sky blue and such. Look for luscious colors of gloves that you can wear with everything from coats to bracelet-length jackets. Tamara creatively opted for quirky accessories like a lip-shaped clutch, heart-shaped sunglasses, colorful belts, pink sunglasses, dream catcher earrings, quirky fascinator, turban, and girly hats. Like her, feel free to show off your playful vibe with your accessory preferences.
Tamara shows off her skills in color blocking styles. Your colored pieces may look feminine or girly depending on how you’re going to style them. A mint green blazer may look chic with a dark green dress, and a neon yellow lace dress may look good with nude pumps, but Tamara artistically styled them with unexpected combinations that made the look girly and quirky. If you are feeling adventurous like Tamara, try bright colors like hot pink, yellow, orange, bright red, and green that are crazily lovable. She can even pull off the colors of the rainbow in one outfit. But if you feel this trick is too loud for you, you can still wear blacks and browns as well as pastels just to have a balance.
Wearing prints and patterns can also make your looks girly. Aside from quirky and novelty prints, you may go for classic polka dots, stripes, checks and have them mixed in your outfit. Dresses are cute, girly, fun, and flirty. You will want to make sure the dress is in style, in fun prints, and fits well. Choose skirts, dresses and blouses with floral patterns, stripes, or swirls and match them with brightly colored coat to make it look more girly. Patterned tights or hose can also add some girly vibe to your outfit.
If you’re not a fan of prints, then be creative on your fabric and texture choices. Look for ensembles with girly embellishments or glittery trims. Lace dresses with feather-trimmed style at the hem or neckline add an ethereal and girly feeling to your looks. Like Tamara, you may look for ruffled blouses in chiffon or other diaphanous fabrics for where ruffles around the face and neckline soften your face while ruffles around the skirt and hemline add a flirty element to your outfit. Brocade blouses, sequin skirts, crochet vest and such can be great too.
If you’re not quirky as Tamara, you can still have your girly style while maintaining that chic feel. Just go for classic colors like red, gold, silver, black, and such creating a sophisticated but girly outfit. When choosing for prints, opt for classic ones like stripes, polka dots, and checks that are more sophisticated and chic. This way, you’re making your own girly style personalized and with a touch of your individuality.
