Smile Tips for dressing more feminine? - May 15th 2010, 04:15 AM

Hey
My name's Keisha, and I'm 16 years old, and I feel like I should start dressing more feminine. I can't even describe my dressing style. I have this whole 'punk rocker/grunge' look.
I'm a smaller girl, 5 feet tall (no exaggeration), small chest, short hair, and glasses.
Any tips/ideas about dressing more feminine?
I'm up for anything.

Wear bright colors, that's what I try and do.

If you like the punk/grudge look, I'd suggest things like denim and tartan (plaid). Especially black leggings with a shorter plaid skirt overtop. Its feminine, without showing leg to the world. Not to mention, wearing tight long-sleeve shirts with some rips is feminine, yet grungy.

Some examples:

http://www.infectiousthreads.com/big...ethal_kiss.htm

There are various other sites with a bunch of other items, including Lip Service Clothing, Folter Clothing, and as shown in the examples, Infectious Threads.

Incorporating punky feminine items into your style, or just finding grungy feminine stuff (i.e. torn-up), should help you look how you want, yet still look like a chick.

Depends how feminine you want to go. Are skirts an option? Maybe get some nice minis or pencil skirts?

how about stuff like distressed denim skirts (http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...3843&langId=-1) with a hoody or something? that's what I wear wuite often these days as I'm trying to be more feminine and I used to dress quite grungy. Also, if you would feel uncomfortable going completely girly from what you're used to wearing, maybe try to wear like normal top and a skirt, or normal bottoms and slightly girly top, like a girly-coloured tank top or something? pumps are always good shoes to wear as they're girly but really comfy and You can wear them casually or for going out.

I used to only wear jeans and t shirts and it never bothered me for a while. When I started going out with my boyfriend I began to fell more feminine and then wanted to dress in a more feminine way.

What I would suggest is Leggings. You can wear them with most things, floaty long tops, shorts, dresses and skirts. They are great, especially if you are not used to wearing dresses and skirts the leggings make you feel more comfortable.

You can still keep your punk rocker style and be feminine.
Criminal Damage have some great dresses
EMP and Grindstore also have some great alternative clothing from a lot of different brands.

Also depending on your style now you could just add a few bright and girlie accessories, these just make your original look more feminine.

I find that buying and wearing more jewellry makes me feel a bit more girly. That's why i got my ears pierced.
