As androgynous threads are at the forefront of fashion, us girls often find it difficult to capture true femininity in our appearance. Some of the most striking women on the planet - Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Emmylou Harris, Coco Chanel, Ali MacGraw - have been cemented as style icons because of their ability to maintain that certain je ne sais quoi that is the feminine spirit. This does not mean that they were decked out in head to toe pink, though I would argue that Elle Woods is also a fashion icon. Their style was quite the contrary; simple yet bold, refined yet wild, beautiful yet strong.
These ladies added sparks of femininity with easy, unassuming accessories as Emily (another hell yeah woman) does so beautifully here. Girly touches, like a brightly colored and uniquely patterned bandana, can be thrown on in seconds and instantly add a ladylike feel to your look. If you ever need tips on incorporating these types of pieces into your outfit, Tomboy Style is a perfectly inspiring and useful resource.
Work it, girls.
