Easy Ways To Become More Feminine
How to be feminine while still remaining a strong woman persona? It’s not impossible, and contrary to what some people may say, femininity does not mean being submissive and weak.
There are definitely ways to add feminine traits to your personality while still being strong, independent, and a go-getter. The key is to find a balance that works for you.
Becoming more feminine could mean anything from altering your appearance to implementing more feminine habits or hobbies into your daily routine. Once you learn how to maximize your feminine energy, you can use it to get ahead in life. It’s no secret that femininity holds a special power and once you learn how to use it to your advantage, you will become unstoppable.
Disclaimer: I am by no means saying that every woman needs to be super feminine. If that’s not what you aspire to be, it’s totally your call. We all carry both feminine and masculine energy by default, and some of you might want to accentuate your femininity. In this case, I hope these tips help get you to the place you wish to get to. Enjoy!

1- Work on your speech
Have you ever heard of talking like a lady? That’s exactly what feminine women do. When you get more in touch with your feminine side, your speaking becomes clearer in pronunciation and softer in tone.
However, speaking like a lady is not just how you speak. It also has a lot to do with what you talk about. Feminine women steer clear of gossip, curse words, and certain subjects. For example, a feminine woman wouldn’t talk about illnesses at the dinner table. You get my drift.
Speaking with elegance is a quick way to sound more refined and lady-like, and there are many online resources that can help you learn how to speak like a lady. This video by Mrs. Midwest is an excellent resource you should watch if you want to learn how to speak in a more feminine tone.
2- Carry yourself with confidence
Feminine women know a thing or two about confidence. Being confident means knowing your worth and acting like it. And the best part about confidence is that you can fake it until you make it.
That’s right. Even the least confident person has the ability to act confident even if they aren’t all that sure of themselves. However, once you start walking and talking with confidence, you will believe you have it quicker than you might think.
Here are some simple ways to improve your confidence:
- Regularly remind yourself of all your accomplishments
- Wear what makes you feel amazing in your own skin
- Groom yourself and always look your best
- Overcome your limiting beliefs
- Be grateful for all you have
3- Take care of your hygiene
Having good hygiene is very important not only for your health but also for your confidence and femininity. Feminine women have a top-notch hygiene routine and take pride in it.
You should already have the basics of hygiene down, like taking a shower, using deodorant, having presentable hair and clean clothes, and brushing your teeth. However, feminine women take hygiene more seriously than just the basics.
Here are some feminine grooming ideas you can do that will take your hygiene to the next level:
Have manicured hands and feet.
That doesn’t necessarily mean having painted nails, however, that helps. You can look pretty and feminine with no nail polish as long as your cuticles are moisturized, your hangnails are cut, and your nails are filed and clean. If you do prefer wearing nail polish, opt for classic colors like nudes, pinks, and reds.
Always smell fresh.
Smelling fresh and having good hygiene go hand in hand. A daily shower and teeth brushing is a must, however, sometimes we need more than those two to remain smelling fresh throughout the day.
A good tip is to remember to carry mint gum with you to keep your mouth fresh and smelling good, and using body wipes in a pinch helps keep the rest of you feeling and smelling fresh.

Prioritize hair health.
Having clean and healthy hair is definitely a big feminine trait. You don’t need to use all the products under the sun to achieve nice hair, but a good haircare routine will help you on your healthy hair journey.
Also, something people sometimes forget is that any hair texture can be feminine. If you don’t like to straighten your hair, please don’t feel like you need to do so in order to feel feminine. Any hair texture you have can look feminine if you take care of it.
That means moisturizing your hair regularly, using a good shampoo and conditioner for your hair type and hair needs, and putting your hair in styles that flatter your face.
I always recommend the Olaplex line for any hair texture and hair need, because it works on literally all hair types. The full line comes with quite a few products, but my personal favorite products of theirs are their No. 6 and No. 3 treatments! No. 6 is a leave-in styling cream and conditioner, and No. 3 is a pre-wash treatment that saved my hair when it was overprocessed and crying for help.
4- Try soft and feminine makeup looks
When it comes to makeup, while bold and loud makeup is cool and artistic, feminine makeup is a lot softer and more natural-looking. Think less is more when applying your makeup.
Rather than changing your facial features with makeup, opt for softer looks which will enhance your features instead.
Thankfully everybody can learn how to do makeup on themselves these days on YouTube and TikTok, so take advantage of these accounts! Pro tip: Follow makeup gurus who look like you or who have similar features to you. These will be the most helpful to you.
5- Receive graciously
Do you have a hard time accepting gifts or compliments? You’re not alone. However, feminine women are gracious receivers and receive freely and appreciatively.
Always be appreciative of anything you receive, whether that’s a nice compliment on your clothes that day, a lending hand, or a kind gesture like a gift.
For example, if you’re getting out of bed in the morning and your husband tells you that you look great, simply say “Thank you”. You don’t need to brush off the compliment by telling him there’s no way you look good with your bed hair. Just take the compliment, and move on.
As women, we are sometimes told that we have to be independent and not depend on anybody else. Which we don’t, but if the help is there, tap into your feminine side and take it. After all, if they didn’t want to help, compliment or gift you something, they wouldn’t have offered.
6- Wear clothes for your body shape
While I think everybody is entitled to wear what they want to, certain clothes just don’t look polished on all body types. Therefore, rather than dressing for your weight, dress for your shape and in pieces that bring out your favorite features.
For example, if you think you have beautiful shoulders, wear more off-shoulder or strapless tops to show them off. If your legs are your best features, wear skirts and dresses that move with you as you walk, revealing them ever so slightly.
The key thing to remember is that you wear the clothes and not the other way around- so wear what you feel comfortable in and what accentuates what you love about your body.
6- Smile more often
Your smile is your best accessory, and everybody looks warm and inviting when they extend a smile. This is an easy way to look feminine and kind, and will make people feel comfortable around you.
Of course there are places you should not be smiling at, however, most of the time a smile is a secret weapon that can help you get further in life and it takes no effort at all!
8- Invest in classic pieces
Style and fashion are very subjective, however, classic pieces can be a great base for your outfits. Clothing like tailored pants, white button-down shirts, blazers, summer dresses, and blouses are good staples to have in your closet.
You can mix and match them with trendy pieces to make your look yours, while maintaining a polished look. Try it! You might like the outfits you come up with.
9- Compliment others and yourself
A nice compliment can make someone’s day, and feminine women give compliments often. Making someone feel good about themselves is a kind gesture, so give compliments daily to people you see.
Feminine women are secure in their femininity and therefore don’t compete with others, especially with other women. If you see a woman looking good, let her know.
You should extend that same courtesy to yourself, too. Complimenting yourself is going to do wonders for your self-confidence. Giving yourself compliments will become second nature once you do it regularly. Affirmations are also a good way of feeling great about yourself.
10- Perfect your posture
Having good posture is great for your spine, but also helps you appear more feminine.
How? Well, when you walk straight with your shoulders rolled back, you are opening up your chest and appear more feminine and confident. It also helps you look thinner if that’s something you’d like!
If you have trouble sitting and walking with good posture, there are plenty of back braces and yoga positions you can try to correct your posture. Just remember to consult a doctor first.
The world needs strong women. Women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved. Women who live bravely, both tender and fierce. Women of indomitable will.AMY TENNEY
