If you are a tomboy girl then you might already know how hard it is to be a tomboy in front of people who always seem to judge you or give you the stink eye all because you act boyish. You might also be someone who lies in the middle i.e. you are not exactly a tomboy or a girly girl but a blend of both. If you really want to be a girly girl once in a while or if you are really looking for a transformation from the tomboy to a girly girl then you are on the right page.
I might as well warn you that it is not as easy as it seems. It takes a bit of getting used to all the girly things as you have never used them. You might also have to learn a few things. You will have to do all the things you used to roll your eyes on whenever someone pointed you to do the girly things.
If you are looking for some tips which might help you in looking more girlish then here are a few things you must adapt to
How to be more girly if you’re a tomboy?
#Changing Your Style
Add Colors To Your Wardrobe Staple
You might really not like the girly colors like pink, purple, blue etc. But if you really want to look girlish you’ll have to add these girly colors to your wardrobe. You might really be into blacks and greys but it doesn’t harm to have some bright colors. For a start, you can invest in some pastel colors and then add some brighter colors later on.
Choose To Wear Skirts And Dresses
Being a tomboy you might be used to wearing baggy t-shirts, sweatpants or loose denim all the time. But now you have to trade these with skirts and dresses. I know it is not really your cup of tea but trust me dresses and skirts are not that bad either. You don’t really need to wear them every single day but wearing them once or twice a week will be a fresh start. Start with loose, flowy silhouettes to be comfortable as well as stylish.
Wear Heels Instead Of Sneakers
Sneakers are the most comfortable footwear, agreed, but in all honesty, they don’t go well with every outfit no matter how much you like them. Wearing heels makes your legs look longer and your feet prettier. You do not necessarily have to wear heels all the time, there are several types of footwear like flatworms, belles, block heels, sandals etc which you can opt from. You can even wear sneakers once in a while or you can pair sneakers or loafers with dresses in order to get that tomboy chic look because trust me it makes you look hot.
Start Wearing Makeup
One thing you need to understand about being a girly girl is that you never go out without your makeup on. You don’t have to wear HD makeup but just make sure that you at least put foundation, mascara and your lipstick on before going out. Start with a simple makeup routine and don’t just be done by washing your face and applying some moisturizer. Start applying foundation, blush, eyeliner and lipstick before you go out. You’ll need a lot of practice to apply eyeliner and eye makeup so take one step at a time.
Accessories Are A Must
Being a tomboy you might have never had to worry about any accessories because you could care less about how you look. But when you are trying to be girly accessories are a must. You need to have hair accessories, statement jewelry, purses and sunglasses to complete the look. You actually need to take time out for doing your hair instead of just brushing it and leaving it to that.
#Giving Importance To Personal Hygiene
Get Rid Of The Extra Body Hair
Oh yes, you can never forget this if you want to be a girly girl. You have to get rid of all the extra body hair. Since you’ll be wearing clothes that reveal your legs, hands and underarms it is necessary to get rid of all of it. If you are a tomboy you might not have probably cared about it but being a girly girl it is a must. Shaving your hair or getting waxed, tweezing or plucking your eyebrows to give them shape and doing the same to the hair on upper lips is something you’ll have to include into your routine.
Mani-Pedis Are A Must
For you to maintain an image of girly girl you have to take care of the small details as well. You have to pay attention to your feet and hands. You have to take good care of your nails, file them every now and then and take care of the dirt that assembles in them. Most of the girls prefer getting a manicure and pedicure to take proper care of their feet and hands.
Setting Aside Time Every Morning
Taking care of your skin and having a skincare regime is a must. You have to include it in your daily routine. Set aside sometime every morning for getting ready and looking presentable for the day even though you might not have much planned for the day. Getting your beauty sleep is as essential as your skincare routine because you can’t afford to have dark circles or bags under your eyes.
#Acting The Part
Being Organized And Neat In Every Aspect Of Life
You don’t just have to be a girly girl appearance wise but you have to make a lot of changes in life as well. You have to be more responsible and organized about your life. Organizing might not be your strongest point but learning a bit of it will do you no harm. Having clean room and clean clothes comes first because sweaty clothes might have worked for you as a tomboy but not anymore.
You might have a habit of swearing like sailors but a girly girl doesn’t swear so you have to work on this habit of yours. Stop cursing at every sentence because it doesn’t look nice. Politeness is the key and if you are already polite then you might not find this difficult.
A Clutch Or A Purse Is A Necessity
You always need to have your essentials with you and that’s why you have to carry purse or clutch along with you whenever you are out. Purse or a clutch is not just an accessory that you carry along to complete the outfit. You need to carry money, cards, makeup, a little bottle of perfume, a hair tie all along with you.
Allow Yourself To Feel The Emotions And Being A Girly Girl
Showing emotions is not wrong. Being a girly girl you can display your emotions. You can genuinely show when you are happy, sad or mad. But be in control and don’t let the emotions get the best of you. In spite of the belief that you have to be overdramatic, in reality, it is not true. Not all the girly girls are drama queens. Enjoy being a girly girl and don’t just do it for the sake of others.
Changing yourself is not easy especially when you have been a tomboy all your life. You have to make efforts to actually be a girly girl. But it is definitely fun to experiment with things in life. It might sometimes be a lot to take in but as long as you want it to happen there’s nothing stopping you.
