From the Archives + Updated: 9 Ways to Make Your Outfit More Feminine

Hey there, lovely people! Today we’re going about a year back in the archives for a super helpful fashion post. These are some ways I like to make my outfits look more feminine and cute, and I’m so excited to share them with you again!! Plus, for you who are reading this the second time, I added two more tips at the end:) So stay tuned!!


Post originally published here.

Let’s be honest. We want to have cute outfits, but a plain t-shirt and pair of shorts alone usually aren’t enough. In my fashion blog posts, I aim to help you put together adorable outfits without having to spend hours on them. When you have a plain, unflattering outfit, try a few of these tips to make it look feminine and stylish in just a couple minutes.

1. Tuck in Your Shirt

Simply tucking in your shirt turns unflattering clothing into a fitted, styled top. It makes your waistline seem higher and creates a more polished look.

2. Add a Cute Belt

A cute belt goes well with tip 1 as it works as a simple accessory to make shorts and pants look less plain and more styled.

3. Highlight Your Eyes

You don’t need to pile on the makeup, but just a touch of mascara highlights your eyes and eyelashes, making a subtle, but powerful difference. 

4. Add Well-Placed Jewelry

One dainty necklace, bracelet, or set of earrings effortlessly adds a little feminine touch to an outfit.

5. Add a Hair Scarf or Bow

Adding a colorful accessory to your hair makes even ponytails pop. (Tip: summer yard sales are the perfect place to find cheap, cute hair scarves!) 

6. Paint Your Nails

I’m usually not into painting my nails, but I recently decided to and was happily surprised. You don’t have to do any crazy designs or colors; even a little bit of color sets the mood and makes your overall look more feminine.

7. Find a Cute Hairstyle

Find several go-to hairstyles that are easy and cute. I have some simple and adorable hair tutorials here and here that would be perfect!

8. Add a Cardigan or Jacket

I LOVE doing this. If you have a plain top and you need some layering, put a cardigan or open jacket over it. It adds some dimension to the outfit and also gives a little more coverage if your shirt is a bit tight.

9. Put on a Somewhat-Coordinated Mask

Ok, maybe you’ll need to order a pack of masks for this, but when I have a few cute, simple, colorful masks, I can color coordinate a bit and add a lot of dimension to my outfit. If we have to wear masks, we might as well make it fun! 😊

The next time your outfit needs a simple and cute change, try a few of these tips! My advice is very simple, but if you put just a couple minutes into doing these few extra things, your outfits will look cuter – and you don’t have to break the bank or spend hours on your clothes.

Let’s Talk!

Spring break is coming up! Do you have any plans?!

  1. Love it! Ah, girl, cardigans! 😍 And that eyeshadow palette is the bomb! I’m more of a fan of muted tones, peach to brown, but I love variety too! 😂 Do you use mostly the gold? And have you ever used the blue or green? (My mom grew up in the 80s and 90s, so she caught the blue (or was it green? )-eyeshadow trend, which is way less of a thing now!)

    1. Haha, thanks! 😊Okay, so I usually use the peach to brown tones as well, but the crazier eyeshadow palette worked better for the photo. I bought like five different palettes in one box. Lol, I’ve tried to wear blue before, but it always looks a little too crazy for my style! 😜
