The Rise of Ultra-Feminine Fashion

Laura Tolentino

There has been much talk of the return of ultrafeminine fashion. Emilia Wickstead’s ruffled dresses inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio have generated much discussion, as has Baz Luhrmann’s tropical fish tank scene in Romeo + Juliet featuring tropical fish tanks with female ornamentation. These examples illustrate just how deeply feminine fashion has returned in fashion today.

But what exactly does that entail? In this article, we will look at three styles of feminine-focused clothing: dresses, skirts, and blouses.


An elegant, pretty color is key to creating a feminine style. Pinks and pastel colors are popular choices; magenta, violet and fuchsia may also work to achieve this look. Pink is particularly ideal because its shades suit most complexions while also offering plenty of options available for customization.

Make an impactful statement of feminine style by wearing a dressy blouse or shirt featuring feminine details like lace. Tights with feminine patterns or colors also work wonders and pair nicely with skirts and boots; tights in this form often work best when worn over sheer fabrics like chiffon.

Add an air of femininity to your clothes by including floral prints and lace detailing in dresses, skirts, or tops – floral patterns will give an outfit an air of romance while making you feel more feminine! Lace can add delicate detail that makes an ensemble complete and can help boost confidence while at the same time being more beautiful than ever.

Pink can sometimes be misconstrued as too feminine for men to wear, but this is an inaccurate perception. There are plenty of women who look great in pink; similarly for other colors like blue and purple. The key is finding the shade that complements your complexion while matching well with your wardrobe.

Finally, it’s essential to add touches of femininity to your look with accessories. A bold-colored necklace or earrings with small or sparkly drops are great additions. Additionally, using lighter foundation can add an additional feminine touch – you might also try adding blush to your cheeks for added depth.

Olive oil green has become one of the hottest trends for fashion during 2023-2024 season and designers are using this color to craft fashionable clothing. Designers such as Bibhu Mohapatra have used olive-oil green hue to craft dresses featuring voluptuous and fluttering shapes while Missoni offers stretch dresses with geometric patterns in this hue. In addition, Cinq a Sept has designed casual olive-oil jackets which will stand out in crowd.


Ultra-feminine fashion skirts typically consist of long, soft fabrics like satin that flow freely and often feature delicate details like lace or other decorative motifs. Hemlines may vary between mini to floor length depending on cultural beliefs of modesty and individual preferences; unlike pants which do not carry inherent gendered values, skirts can be worn by both women and men.

Although skirts can be challenging to style, there are several simple tricks you can employ to make them appear ultra-feminine. One approach is choosing light fabrics like silk or cotton. Additionally, pairing your skirt with a sleeveless top or blouse will further elongate and slim your torso while showing some skin.

Feminine colors should be light and bright; for instance, try selecting lilac or mint green as these shades will enhance your complexion and bring out features in your features. A solid-colored skirt also looks more flattering on your body than patterns do; additionally choose one which hugs your curves well!

Long, flowing skirts make an elegant summertime statement when worn with light-colored tops or tanks, creating an eye-catching silhouette and an ideal casual summertime ensemble. Add a blazer or cardigan for added elegance. A wrap skirt offers another great feminine option; popularized during its initial popularity in 1940s and 1950s, its ultrafeminine shape accentuates curves while tapping into female energy.

When it comes to fashion, finding your unique feminine outfit requires finding your own personal style. A great way to do this is by exploring your wardrobe and discovering which clothes and styles speak to you the most; then incorporate those pieces into your daily attire.

When styling a skirt, it is essential to consider its overall aesthetic. Your personal style may evolve over time; do not be intimidated to experiment with different looks and embrace your individuality and find one that makes you feel confident and contented with yourself and the world.


Dress bodices with shirring and sculpturing draw attention directly to a woman’s breast area, highlighting her most feminine features. Furthermore, wide skirts draw focus to hips for an hourglass figure enhancement and gigot sleeves add volume for smaller bust sizes to complete this look.

The 17th century marked a transition from Renaissance styles to Baroque. While some basic styles remained consistent – for instance, bodices still featured low, sloping necklines with ruffled sleeves; their upper parts could also be boned for shaping purposes; decorations were frequently applied via embroidery while lacing was the closure method used for their closure.

Portraits believed to be of Mary display dresses with low necklines that come to a point at the front and gauzy fabric pinned at their necklines (Fig. 3). Anna Josepha Monialis wears an almost identical style dress; her dress features dark silk brocade and lace, complete with curly full-bottomed wig, as well as its long train being held by Anna’s right hand (see below).

In the 1820s, bodices became more tailored to body contours and embellished with lace. By the 1860s, however, a new silhouette emerged known as the princess line gown – without horizontal waist seams, but featuring vertical seams and tucks to form snugly against vertical lines on body. This silhouette could then be further highlighted with either a bust cup or cuirass bodice featuring heavily boned shaping features that further emphasize it (Fig 4).

Another popular style was the polonaise, which featured longer and more draped fabric that was trimmed with double flounce lace frills (Fig. 5). This garment became increasingly popular as an evening dress (Fig. 6).

As for ultrafemininity, it is important to recognize that this doesn’t just refer to clothing but more about an attitude and perception towards oneself and her appearance. While many may admire feminine fashion standards, some women feel uncomfortable because their bodies do not conform. As such they experience social embarrassment as people do not see them as beautiful or desirable and they may perceive others devaluing or ridiculing them due to failure to conform.


Pastel hues, ruffles and bows that have taken over social media like TikTok and Instagram for some time now have made their way from little girls’ dreams into their wardrobes, and into fashion designer collections as well. Full skirts to pink lace dresses have all made an appearance on runways across the world as this ultra-feminine trend was welcomed into wholesale fashion this season.

Are you searching for ways to add some feminity and femininity to your wholesale fashion collection? Look no further than heels! They provide leg-lengthening effects while adding tasteful details such as crossover straps or dainty bows, making heels an essential piece in any feminine ensemble. From classic block heeled sandals to girly chic strappy heeled sneakers – there is sure to be something to suit all styles and tastes in heels!

Even staunch antifeminists recognize the symbolic value of high heels. Even more so, the Museum of Modern Art hosted an entire exhibit dedicated to this mysterious fashion item’s allure. But while high heels may represent femininity for some women, they have also become symbols of self-esteem for many others as well as tools of social control over time.

As much as high heels may elicit debate, they seem here to stay. Designers such as Giambattista Valli, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana embraced romanticism this season through designs from Giambattista Valli, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana that fully embrace this aesthetic with full romanticism. While some might argue they are new trends; Liane Wiggins of Matches Fashion insists they have always been fashionable.

Hyper-feminine aesthetic is perhaps most striking for its subversiveness. The soft edges can be found in Sandy Liang’s pinafore dresses and bows; Simone Rocha’s offbeat, quirky styles; Ganni’s gorpcore collection; or Molly Goddard’s playful sweetness of lace and satin ruffles or Blumarine’s sweet as candies designs. But this aesthetic also appears less obviously through ways like Molly Goddard’s playful sweetness with satin ruffles from designer Molly Goddard or Blumarine’s sweet-as-candy aesthetic.
