One of the things that new bloggers agonize over before launching a blog is the theme. Is this you?
I’ve gathered an awesome selection of free and premium feminine yet chic WordPress themes that deliver all the things you’ll need for a money-making blog.
I’ll start with the free ones that still manage to deliver an awesome experience for your readers while giving you the capabilities you need to run a smooth website.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with going with a free theme. I do advise that you upgrade to a premium theme as soon as you can as these are updated more regularly and less likely to suffer from a security lapse or successful hacking attempt.
In this post you will find
Free Feminine WordPress Themes
The Girlie Lite theme offers a featured post slider, highlights for important posts, pages or products and a widget-ready sidebar. The footer area is neat and offers social follow buttons and an about blurb.
Pretty WordPress Theme
The Pretty WordPress Theme is responsive, meaning it will work well on mobile devices, minimalistic and girly. It will satisfy the needs of the simplistic lifestyle, fashion or mommy blogger wanting girly elements within their theme.
Pashmina eliminates the big header image and allows you instead to offer featured posts right at the top of the page. This free theme offers custom colours and allows for banner advertisements on the homepage.
Premium Girly WordPress Themes

I’m a fan of any theme that allows me to have my subscribe box right at the top of the home page and the Pretty Happy WordPress theme delivers on this. It’s a colourful yet clean theme that’s e-commerce ready and fully customizable to your branding needs.

This Fun WordPress theme is ready for ecommerce but can totally be used for blogs in other categories such as food, parenting, travel or lifestyle.

Studiopress is a theme market with some absolutely beautiful, professional themes. If you want to make money from your blog and turn it into a thriving business, I would go with one of these themes.
They’re all optimized for SEO, email marketing and selling your products and services. Even if you do not use all of these features immediately, it’s nice to be able to grow with your theme instead of having to do a complete overhaul when necessary.
Creative WordPress Theme
The Creative WordPress theme is super easy to set up and offers 5 different layout options for your homepage. Here it shows off a two-column grid layout for displaying your blog posts on the homepage. The colours are fun and feminine right out the box but you can customise these and add your own header and logo.
Inspired WordPress Theme
This theme is quite chic! The Inspired WordPress theme comes with several front page layout options, two of which are shown above. It comes with its own announcement bar at the top of the page and email opt-in below the header area. This is quite handy as it means you won’t need additional plugins installed on your blog. The fewer plugins, the better for SEO!
Divine Pro Theme
The absolutely gorgeous and fully customizable Divine WordPress Theme comes with the Genesis framework making it a little pricier than the options listed here. The Genesis framework is quite powerful, allowing for drag and drop page building functionality to make the beautiful page layouts offered in this theme without needing to know a stitch of code. It’s displayed as a food blog here but can be used for any niche.
If you’re wondering what theme I use, that would be the Divi theme from Elegant Themes. I love it for its drag and drop functionality and ability to be customized in a bunch of different ways.
Plus the membership price allows me to use the themes on any number of sites that I want. You can see how I laid it out differently for my lifestyle blog here.
I hope I’ve helped you to select a theme for your blog, whether you’re starting a brand new blog or redesigning your existing blog.
