Being feminine can mean different things to different people because each culture has its own notion of what it means to be female.
In the west, the concept of femininity is tied heavily to gender norms.
Traditionally, being feminine or girly means being gentle, nurturing, sensitive, sweet, passive, empathetic, or devoted — to name a few traits.
As people continue to realize that gender norms are a little outdated, we now think that being feminine is more of a style choice (although positive feminine traits are still good to emulate).
