Girly Fonts
While I'm not 100% sure there is an exact formula for creating a more feminine font, I have definitely noticed that a lot of my personal favorite fonts seem to lean that way. Whether it's extra swirly glyphs on the ends of letters, or a sleek and slim structure, the overall vibe of these fonts is definitely on the girly side. And, they're a blast to play around with, too (especially for invitations and such). I've included my best tips for pairing a number of these fonts together for an even more eye-pleasing result.

21 Feminine and Girly Fonts

If you stop by here a lot, you know I love beautiful fonts. And if they're free? That's even better. Today's free feminine and girly fonts have been meticulously curated to be the best of the best. I went through and made sure all are safe to use on all of your personal items. And I also looked quite intricately at each font's structure, overall (I don't care for needless "breaks" in fonts, especially cursive ones). Again, these are for personal use. If you want to use them in a commercial manner, most of the font designers do provide options for licensing and commercial versions, some with a simple note to the designer or donation of your choosing.

And, this post has a companion set of fonts: 21 Free Masculine Fonts

Font Pairing
As I mentioned above, I also included a few helpful font pairing ideas and tips. They're located at the bottom of this post...feel free to scroll ahead and check them out.

Below are some seriously flirty and feminine girly fonts. Some are great for sign-making, some fabulous for making your own prints to frame and display. They'd ALL look amazing on simple invitations (think wedding or shower). You can also just print them out and use them for home labeling (it's fun to make labeling a bit fancy, isn't it?). The possibilities are endless with these pretties.


Installing Your Feminine and Girly Fonts

I'm a life-long Mac user (well, since 1997...I sadly know nothing of how a PC works). But, there is a handy font installation guide for PC users here on Wikihow that can definitely help in that department.

To install these free fonts on your Mac (since this is what I use, I can speak to that the best), you can follow along with my tutorial below:

How to Install Fonts

Installing Fonts on a Mac:

  • After you have download your new feminine font, locate it in your download folder (or wherever you've downloaded your font to).
  • Now, open the folder of the font (there may not be one, it may just be the actual file, in which case, you won't have to open a folder).
  • Double click the .ttf or .otf file (I prefer .otf. or Open Type Format files if they're available. They can be resized or manipulated without compromising quality. But, they're not always available.).
Installing Fonts on a Mac
  • Once you've double clicked the .ttf or .otf file, a dialog box should automatically pop up.
  • Click the 'Install Font' button (as pictured above) and your installation will automatically begin (it only takes just a few seconds for the entire install). 
  • Now, check your Font Book (located in your applications folder) to make sure it's there and you can start using your new font immediately.

Free Feminine and Girly Fonts

Below, you'll just click on the image or name below each font name to be taken to the download site. Be sure to check each designer's Terms of Use, as most of these fonts are for personal use only (but many have commercial licensing available). Happy fonting, friends!

Catherine de Beaumont Font
Above, the Catherine de Beaumont font is that classic cursive font with a nice, traditional feel. This would be perfect on invitations.

Fashion Fettish Font
And the Fashion Fetish font is one of the more structured fonts in this collection. It's very clean and easy on the eyes, but includes some surprise fun details, too (like the slight slant of the lowercase E). 
Marline Font
The Marline font had me with all of its glyphs and swirls. Plus, who can resist dotting your I with a heart? This font is slightly playful, too. Marline also happens to be the name of my mother's close friend, so it made me smile!

Daddy's Girl Font
Another cute "heart dot" number is the Daddy's Girl Font. It's a bit more juvenile, but reminds me of the notes I'd pass along (in class- ha!) to all of my best girlfriends. It looks great in all-caps, too, and pairs easily with playful cursive fonts. 
Ladybirds Font
In all honesty, this Ladybirds font actually reminds me of birds (and I'm not even sure why that is!). But, its unique strokes and both thin and thick elements make for a lovely feminine feel overall. 
Caviar Dreams Font
The Caviar Dreams font has actually been a favorite of mine for many years. It's a super easy font to use just about anywhere. But, its demure, modest shape keeps it in the feminine feel. I do love that the dots on the I and J letters are just a tad weightier for an expected feel. 

Heylena Font

7. Heylena

Goodness, I've just met her, but I'm already infatuated with the Heylena font (I used her in both the first and last graphics of this post). She's fun and flirty with such a nice, brush-like stroke quality. Plus, she pairs beautifully with a more structured font.
Betty Font
If there ever was a font that perfectly resembled its name, I think the Betty font is it! While this is a great print font, it's more playful than many of its counterparts. And it has some slight glyphs at the end of some of the characters...giving it that girly vibe.
Hello, Sweetie Font
The Hello, Sweetie font is another slightly swirly one, with a nice uneven "line" for the letters to sit on (in a purposefully fun manner). It's not overly glyph-filled, but definitely has enough of that vibe to fall into the feminine category.
Bonjour Font
While the Bonjour font isn't what I'd consider an "everyday font", it's the perfect title-style font for special occasion uses. It's sophisticated, French, and definitely feminine. It looks like the title to the perfect women's magazine. This is also an all-caps font with the unique trait of having the actual capitalized characters dip below, as well as, raise above the other letters. 
Darleston Font
This lovely cursive Darleston font is another classic and traditional number that is perfect for invitations. The name sounds perfectly southern, too (certainly makes me think of Charleston).
Muirgen Font
What a fun and friendly font this Muirgen one is! I love the open spaces in it. If you use a program that allows for it, it's fun to fill the open spaces of this font with a variety of colors for a unique and playful look. It's got the wonderful double-storey looptail lowercase G that makes my heart go pitter patter.
Bella Girl Font
I love the playful nature of the Bella Girl font. It's a thicker-style of font that will pair wonderfully with a thin, tall sans-serif print font.
Palm Beach Font
Ahhh...this classy Palm Beach font is definitely a tall, sophisticated number that is super feminine and a bit flirty. I love the extension of the A letter, too. Plus, it's another all-caps font.
Olivia Font
If you're looking for a slight variation on a traditional cursive font, the Olivia font has you covered. It contains a few longer glyphs and tails that really lend to its feminine feel.

Red Velvet Font
I love a classic thick/thin serif font and this Red Velvet font certainly fulfills that. It has a few slight tails at the end of a couple of characters that make it very flirty and feminine. Plus...it reminds me of cake. You can't go wrong there. 
Samantha Font
Oooh, the Samantha font is a sweet one! It has automatic glyphs in it that occur when certain letters are paired together or put on the ends of words. And the connecting letters in this font are so flawless. 
Mermaid Font
This Mermaid font is another classic traditional shape that is so easy to use for so many situations. It's always great to have a number of these go-to fonts at the ready.
Risalah Cinta Font
I really appreciate a good "non-slanted" cursive font. The Risalah Cinta font is the perfect example of that. I also love the surprise "open" strokes on some characters, like the uppercase R, pictured above.
Soft Line Font
The Soft Line font certainly lives up to its name with a light, soft feel to it. This dainty and delicate font is perfect for a variety of uses...especially paired with a heavier, cursive font.
Spice Girl Font
Well, we can't have a feminine font round up without a Spice Girl font, right? This number is a thicker font that works well in both all-caps and a lowercase. It's a bit edgy, but also fun!

Feminine Font Pairing Ideas

While all of the above free girly fonts look quite lovely on their own, most are even better together (aren't we all better together?). Below, I've included some feminine font pairing ideas for you to put into practice on your own creations. I have a visual for you below the list, as well (which includes fonts from this list of Feminine and Girly Fonts). The best piece of advice I can give when pairing fonts: have fun with it! But, there are a few rules of thumb for font pairing and usage to make them look extra special and fabulous:
  • Try to avoid pairing two swirly fonts together. The swirlier fonts can be quite ornate in nature and would compete with one another. It would also be a little tough on the eyes. 
  • Pair a thicker, heavier weighted-font with a skinny font.
  • Pair a script font with a print font (combine this with the thicker/skinny idea and you've got a really good thing going on).
  • I also like to do all caps with one font and pair it with a script font in all lowercase, but that's just my own preference.
    • When I do the above pairing, I often do the script font on "top", allowing it to kind of sit on the all-caps font. The all-caps font acts as a nice "base". You can see how I did that in the first and second font combinations illustrated below.
  • While this has nothing to do with font pairing, one thing I have to mention: please don't ever use ALL-CAPS with a cursive or swirly font. It's just really unfortunate to look at and makes my eyes hurt (both literally and figuratively, friends).
