Girly Girl

No tomboy here? You never know.
I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy
Like a filly who is ready for the race!
When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl
I float as the clouds on air do
I enjoy being a girl!
— "I Enjoy Being a Girl", Flower Drum Song

The Girly Girl is the counterpart to the Tomboy. That is, a little girl or woman who likes things like floaty dresses and perfume and jewellery. However having one of these attributes doesn't necessarily make a girl Girly. Depending on local norms, a tomboy may have some of these traits, and the variety of Girly girls is great enough that no one trait can be called essential. Therefore, it is nearly inevitable she will invert Tomboy with a Girly Streak (which the tomboy plays straight).
