Little Things So Feminine

Updated on June 19, 2013

There are many things that make a woman feminine. While inner femininity covers the womanly nature and attitude, its outer side zeroes in on the appearance. People may see this aspect of femininity as being a little vain, but its amazing how this maidenly facet continues to awe the world.

Little things so feminine are not extremes, but they can bring you to feeling heights. These are petty little things, but clever enough to capture the hearts of the strong.


That Dainty Attire

Fluffy, lacey, filmy, satiny, silks, wools and linens are things so feminine. These are fabrics that are soft to the eye and so delightful to touch.

It helps us grow towards a happy knowledge that we are well-dressed and good to look at, which is pleasant not only to ourselves but for the world around us. You may not have fine shoulders, a tiny waist, shapely hips, or good legs, but dressing with discipline in form and taste pave the path to being so feminine. Why is it that you admire at photographs of refined girls in the past?

Your Meek High Heels

Wearing high heels is distinctively feminine. The refined arching of your foot in a high-heeled shoe with toes a little pointing intensifies your image into a woman-like splendor. It makes the legs appear longer and more shapely. It puts the accent on the best of your figure. Wearing well-fitting, conservative and comfortable high heels naturally brings you to move and glide with extra care and grace.

Some Sparkles

A brooch to me is very feminine. Old-fashioned as it sounds, a brooch looks well on all women. You can wear it on a simple blouse, sweater, evening dress or even a hat. It can make the simplest attire look marvelous and it can dress up a dark coat for evening wear.

While earrings are what define a woman as feminine, a bracelet or necklace can make her look very ladylike. She can excuse herself from wearing any other kind of jewelry, but not from wearing earrings. It is the eternal jewelry for every woman.

A Whiff of Lovely Scent

Fragrance or perfume makes a woman utterly feminine. The whiff of pleasant aroma she wears daily becomes an echo of her personality. From the way her hair smells to the overall fragrance is magic within her grasp. Dab a little on the inside of the wrist, or spray scent on pulse zones before you go. Bring the magic of spraying a drop on your handkerchief each day. The secret is - a little in a lot of places is better than a lot in one place.

Your Pampering Bath

Every girl loves a pampering bath. It is a rewarding accomplishment to be able to make herself feel good, fresh, softer, scented, prettier and more glowing not just in a space of 10 minutes, but all day long. No excuses.

A pampering bath is much more than a means of keeping clean; it is a complete beauty treatment and something to be taken and enjoyed at leisure. Bubbles, bath soaps, milk or oils to nourishing creams are little things so feminine.

Lovely Colors


Although fashion tends to associate bright pinks and purples with very young women, while deeper shades of red and purple for adult women, high color contrast and softer tone concepts are things so feminine.

Even opaque tights in fashionable colors can bring thrills of majestic appeal.

Subtle make-up is part of our colors. Not to mention that wearing it has nothing to do with how attractive you are, but make-up when handled rightly and lightly gives you just the right amount of polish and prettiness. A feminine woman is actually free to go with make-up or without.

My Definition of a True Feminine Beauty

What makes us feminine defines how we present ourselves to the world. It has nothing to do with trying to fit an image imposed by outside expectations, but by just how we should be.

True feminine beauty has a heart inspired by God. It's life displays the inner person which far outweighs what one looks like from the outside. That is when our lives will sparkle with feminine loveliness that lasts.

Being attractive is awesome. But it's not what makes anyone feminine at all. I for one very much enjoy the sound that my heels make as I walk :=) lol. I love fragrances, too. But I am not feminine just for these things. I am feminine for who I am. Anyway this is my definition, this is also the way I feel. Do you feel the same?

      Hi Beth. With the many dictates of society today that challenges the feminine side, that innate nature that comes from within any woman all but simply demonstrates womanly virtues - gentleness and compassion carry that womanly attribute.

      Very nice of you sharing what's in your heart. Thank you. Like you said "trying to capture it" -- means how every inch a feminine you are! Wishes of loveliness from me:=) -Tonette

      Hi Sue. Only a heart with GOD completes true beauty. Glad you've made it by. Thanks, you too, take care.

      Hello RobinGrosswirth. "Who you are pours through your pores" - what a very nice line, thank you. Perhaps it's the beauty of age, it allows us walk through all the facets of life and teaches us that youthfulness may fade, but not the beauty that lies within the heart. Have a great day and cheers!

      Who you are pours through your pores. Yes, the inside is critical to what is observed on the outside.

      However, after a certain age, women are made to feel invisible and the environmental print reflected in the world around us illustrates that beauty is associated with youth. Pity.

      Glad you feel the same, Debbie. Sometimes and busy as this world could lead us to things that keep us, what's inside the heart teaches us the way to slow down, and the blessings of inner beauty is what we call it. Thanks so much for dropping by and for sharing! :=) You inspire people.

      Thank you my dear teaches. All things are beautiful with God. Those simple dresses, like you said, making a classic look on women, also define one thing - simplicity is beauty:=) Thanks too for being another true feminine woman. Best wishes!

      I like your final reference, it is the inner beauty as defined by God that makes a beautiful woman. I do adore those simple dresses that make such a classic good look on women. Thanks for the reminder of what true beauty is in a woman.

      Hi katyzzz. It doesn't matter even if you lack some of what I consider little things so feminine. The sense of desiring to feel and appear feminine already makes you a true feminine woman, mind, heart and spirit. Cheers to that! Glad you've made it by. Blessings!

      Hello MsDora. Thanks for feeling the same. It could be very hard to get a soft spot in the heart without God. HE truly is the source of why there has to be a woman :=) Lucky we all are... thank you very much. Hope you're doing great.

      "True feminine beauty has a heart inspired by God." Do I feel the same? I sure do. It's all about representing the softer side of God; true femininity must have its origin in Him.

      Such a lovely hub and on a topic which so many cannot relate to. It is their loss, I lack a lot of what you suggest but I do like to appear feminine by preference. Thank you for bringing this issue forward in such an original way

      Hello anginwu. I like your term"trappings"...I bet it's where the attraction is at strongest, and the best way to trap the man we love? Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your thoughts. Keep up that feminine touch.

      I agree femininity is very pleasing and it takes more than physical features or trappings. Love your ideas of "femininizing " ourselves. thanks.

      Hi Nell, thank you. Maybe wearing that dainty dress these days would really be such a sweet challenge to us. I too have a lot of jean-days, its just so convenient to move with the kind of times we have today. This makes things so feminine a lovely reminder to somehow take things lightly. Lovely thoughts you have. Blessings!

      Hello Angela. I usually hear people say “every bit as grumpy as the old girls” :=(…why it always have to be the old girls?... grrrr…lol. “Gruff” – you got me there. I should have another one for this :=) Thank you, you’re an angel! So nice to have you dropped by. Best wishes.

      Hi Vellur. A true feminine woman likes things light and beautiful. It’s nice knowing you’re among those that I knew of. Thank you for finding my hub great. Wishing you’re in all the best.

      Thank you very much Ruby. Maybe feminine feelings naturally go with pretty colors, pleasant scents, fine designs or anything lovely. You bring joy to everyone. Thanks for reading and for sharing. Keep up!

      I absolutely agree with you on every point you made -- and would add only one. Gruff, overbearing women are not feminine so a more gentle, pleasant nature also enhances femininity of any woman. Best/Sis
