Girly Girl

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.

No examples for this page, please. Put all your examples under one of the various traits associated with Girly Girls. If we don't have a subtrope for your specific Girly girl please feel free to use the YKTTW to create a trope for it.
