This is the fourth and final post in the Style Staples series (see the other posts here). During this series, I am covering the staples I believe each woman should have, depending on what she considers her true style to be. I don’t see the value in telling women that the same 20 staples are going to work for every single one of us, because it’s just not the case. We all have different likes and different ways we would like to portray ourselves, so this series will give you the opportunity to pick which style you think you’re most closely aligned to and consider purchasing some of the style staples within that group! These clothing and accessory items are versatile pieces that will carry you through multiple outfits.

Who is the Girly Girl dresser? The girly girl embraces all things feminine. Similar to a preppy dresser with a love for bows and pearls, this woman also loves lace, pink, floral print, and lipstick.
Things to keep in mind for the Girly Girl dresser: You don’t want to dress in such a manner that you appear “stuffy” to others. Similar to the Eclectic Chic dresser, make sure you add some casual pieces into your wardrobe too, to keep things from being too one-note. Make sure you aren’t overdoing it, too. For instance, if you already have bow heels on, and a bow ring, don’t wear a tie-neck blouse or a bow in your hair – use some restraint!
Although both are a bit of a mixed-bag when it comes to their styles, both blogs’ archives house outfits with tons of feminine inspiration.
Don’t worry if I didn’t cover your particular style in this series – I will be doing another edition in the Spring! Until then, remember, most of us aren’t just one style. Usually we pick and choose from a bunch of different styles that we like and come up with a wardrobe that fits each of us. I don’t want anyone to be cookie cutter – having a bit of “Style ADD” is really just fine!
