Looking around it’s hard to miss: the return of gorgeous pinks and blushes, plus tons of delicate details. One of this season’s most powerful trends is whisper-soft and decidedly feminine.

But we’re not referring to your grandma’s dowdy frills. We’re talking modern femininity. It’s a whole new take on dressing like a woman. One that’s filled with a fresh color palette, contemporary accents and soft shapes that accentuate a woman’s figure.

Want to know how you can pull off the look? We broke down the trend so that anyone can master. And everything is available at Burlington at up to 65% off other retailers’ prices every day.

The Fashion

The key to modern femininity? It’s all in the details. Look for ruffles, sleeve details and lace (but don’t overdo the lace – you don’t want to be a walking doily). Florals and pink are natural go-to’s. They’re both sure to appeal to your girlie side. And nowadays, you have tons of options from bold blooms to demure petals, from pale blushes to deep fuchsias.

The Scent

But you’re not done yet. Top it all off with an ultra-feminine scent. Floral fragrances, which are synonymous with romance, generally combine the scents of various flowers to create a classic feminine appeal. Popular notes include jasmine, peony, gardenia, tuberose, lily of the valley, magnolia and mimosa. For help choosing from perfume, Eau de Parfum or Eau de Toilette read here.

    I love the whole look; it’s so chic! I first saw it on many designer’s lines last summer, and it’s funny that it hasn’t been given the attention that it deserves. I just wanted to add that the necklace piece is an accessory that doesn’t need any help in the form of bracelets or earrings.
