Style File: Girly Moment
‘It’s okay to embrace your feminity and have moments of pure girliness’
I am a girly girl and proud of it! I love pastels, patterns and feminine shapes. Yet, whenever I seem to admit that I like the colour pink, eight times out of ten this is met with startled, disapproving expressions. Add that to people refusing to take me seriously whilst wearing a floaty feminine dress and my ex telling me he found me more attractive when wearing a hoodie and I am left wondering what is wrong with society!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want every women to start dressing like a 1950s housewife. In fact, I think it’s amazing that women can choose to wear suits… or jeans and trainers now. If that’s your style then great, you should be accepted and in the same way, women who have a girly sense of style should be too.
But that isn’t the case. Skirts are banned from some school uniforms and a lot of work uniforms. Women feel the need to be more like men to survive in the business world and there seems to be a lot of negative stereotypes surrounding very feminine women. Can’t we all just live in a world where every women is accepted and not judged, no matter how they choose to dress?
