10 Ways To Be More Feminine When You Are A Strong Woman

by Natalie Parkinson 9 days ago in list

Feminine But Strong

Being a strong and assertive woman is sometimes frowned upon in today's society, as a strong woman is seen as an aggressive woman aka a "masculine" woman.

Let me set the record straight. Being strong and assertive does not make you aggressive or "masculine". If you were ever told that you were too aggressive (aka assertive) the reason is that person was intimidated by your assertiveness, your intelligence, and the fact that you were not afraid to challenge their opinion.

That being said, a strong woman can be presumed to be aggressive if the way she presents herself both physically and expressively is not soft and delicate but bold and strong-willed. If you are a strong woman and you want to be perceived as less aggressive (even though you are not) and more feminine then this article is for you.

Being more feminine does not make you weak, on the contrary, it will make people perceive you as a cooperative person, who is charming and engaging aka "nice". When you exude feminine energy (not sexual energy) it will attract what you desire to you for e.g. a better life partner/husband, a job, a raise, business opportunities and it will increase your chances of manifesting your dream life.

10 Ways To Be More Feminine When You Are A Strong Woman

Wear Soft Feminine Colors

Update your wardrobe with soft feminine colors such as pink, peach, yellow, cream, and white. Stay away from dark colors such as black, navy blue, and dark brown as they tend to make you appear harsh and less feminine.

Add Delicate Jewelry To Your Outfits

Don't overlook jewelry when putting together an outfit as adding delicate jewelry like a necklace or earrings will complement not distract from any outfit. Adding layers of delicate jewelry speaks feminine energy.

Tone Down Your Makeup

Let your inner beauty shine by toning down your foundation and eye makeup to reflect a more natural you. Skip the contour look and just apply foundation, concealer, and blush. To soften eye makeup, just use mascara and eyeshadow, fill in sparse brows with an eyebrow pencil (never black), and leave the eyeliner for the evening. For lips, choose soft colors for daytime and enhance with lipgloss.

Skirts, Dresses, and Blouses

Nothing is more feminine than wearing a skirt or a dress. Dresses, skirts, and blouses will totally give you that feminine vibe you are looking for. Choose the right dress and skirt for your body type and if a dress is too much of a change for you, a silk blouse will do the trick.

Practice Self-Care

One of the keys to being feminine is the art of self-care. I'm sure you've heard that taking care of yourself first is optimal so that you can take care of other people. Self-care is not a selfish act. It is giving to yourself and pouring into yourself so that you can give to others as you can't pour from an empty cup.

Speak In A Softer Tone

Speaking in a softer tone does not mean changing your voice. It means to speak softly and quietly but emphasize the words you want to covey. Speaking lower and slower will also help to soften your tone.

Ask For Help

Being an independent woman does not mean you shouldn't ask for help when you really need it. Having a support system is good for your mental health as it will connect you with others, and this will in turn increase your optimism and make you feel positive. The help that you receive will bring improvement to your mind, body and spirit.

Be Creative

Yes, creativity will open you up to be more feminine. The art of being creative (drawing/painting, gardening, writing, baking, playing an instrument, etc) will produce feminine energy making you feel like your true authentic self. Being feminine and creative goes hand-in-hand.

Kindness Matters

Kindness is the new cool and is a feminine trait. Being kind is an asset that draws people closer to you and empowers them to do better and improve themselves. A kind-hearted person is always beautiful no matter what they look like.
