->''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!''

The '''Girly Girl''' is a little girl or woman who likes things like floaty dresses and perfume and jewelry, etc. However having some 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 [[GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak ''invert'']] the TomboyWithAGirlyStreak (which the tomboy plays straight).

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.

Compare FemininityTropes. Contrasts with {{Tomboy}} and OneOfTheBoys.
