A lot of girls come of age and try to change up their look. This can happen in their early teen years or even later in life when they are about to go to college. For a lot of girls who spend their childhood enjoying tomboyish activities, they try to look more feminine while entering this important phase of their life. Whether they want to wear more makeup or trade their sneakers for heels, it is a big change. A lot of parents tend to worry about their daughter when she plays violent video games and wears caps backward. But it is nothing to fret over as all girls go through certain phases. There are some ways that can help the process along. If your girl asks you to make her look more girly, you can easily make it happen without changing who she is.

If your daughter or sister or niece wants to get in touch with her feminine side, help her change her look. It does not mean that you do a complete 360 on who she is as a person. You can start by buying her pavement girl dresses online, or giving her new makeup. Whatever you do, make sure that she is staying true to herself.

What Does Femininity Mean in Today’s World?

It can be difficult to define femininity in today’s progressive timeframe. Women no longer have to take part in traditional roles, like housekeeping and taking care of children. This is one of the main reasons why young girls shy away from their feminine side. They are taking part in the workplace as leaders, and girlishness does not have a place there. But this is not entirely true. Women can embrace their equal roles in society alongside men without sacrificing their femininity. The traditional role of a woman is no longer applicable to our society. But this does not mean that young girls cannot have fun with their style and appearance. And this is where the tomboy comes in.

Tomboys and Fashion

Tomboys are considered to be confident and powerful. Little girls who exude this energy usually get a lot of stares and questions. But the tomboy has been a status symbol in the fashion industry for a long time. From leather jackets to acid-washed sneakers, tomboys have set some interesting trends. So when your little girl, who is a tomboy, asks to be more feminine, she is simply taking a step forward. It does not mean that she will go from dark pants to frilly dresses. She simply will add more to her already existing look.

Since fashion and style choices are about expression, your girl can express herself in whatever way she wants to. This means she can take on a cuter look, rather than an intimidating one. It also means that her definition of being “girly” is different from other people.

Looking More Girly: A Tomboy’s Guide

Wear Clothes That Fit

This is an easy enough choice to make. The main look for more tomboys is baggy shirts and pants with longer sleeves than necessary. So, if you are going for a girlier look, all you need to do is find clothing that fits. This does not mean that you find suffocating clothing for your daughter which makes her uncomfortable. What you can do is help build her frame in an appropriate way, as most teenage girls are insecure. You can also get her already existing clothes some adjustments so they fit better. This way you won’t have to buy new outfits and she will be happy with her look.

Choose Feminine & Girly Tops

The right top is the trick into looking more feminine. The theme that you have to follow when it comes to blouses and tops is florals and pastels. This gives off a more feminine vibe than any other option you pick, which is great for your girl. You can do a lot with these tops as they can be paired with all kinds of pants and skirts. Make sure that when you go shopping with your tomboy, she is happy with the choice you make and feels comfortable.

Use Makeup and Other Cosmetics

Even if this a stereotype, makeup makes you look more feminine. Even if this is the effect of popular culture, if your tomboy wants to look girly, you should try using makeup. Girly girls traditionally will not leave their houses without applying some form of makeup. Whether it is lip gloss, a little bit of eyeliner and mascara and a tinted moisturizer, does not matter. It does matter that your tomboy wants to use these products and they make her feel good about herself. Ask her before you make a purchase and then help her use the cosmetics as well.

Exchange Sneakers for Heels

Although sneakers are the main choice for most tomboys, you can make a change with shoe wear. Tomboys opt for sneakers because of the comfort they provide, as well as the edgy look. But heels are a good choice for a more feminine look and they make dresses look better as well.

The Final Thoughts

In conclusion, there is no set formula for the way tomboys and girly girls act and look. Young girls develop their own sense of style that can be different from each other no matter what. This being said, if your tomboy does want to change up her look, she can do this easily. By making a few changes to her wardrobe and makeup choices, she will be able to find the perfect balance between looking feminine and edgy at the same time.
