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 blog themes for chic and girly websites and WordPress blogs 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.
If you’re wondering, the theme that I use for all my blogs is Divi by Elegant Themes. It is an excellent drag and drop theme that requires no heavy lifting to get started right away. It includes a huge selection of layouts for every niche that even if you suck at design, everything it all laid out for you.
The annual fee also allows me to use this theme on as many blogs I’d like and I do just that. Each of my blogs look different because of all the incredible layout options that Divi offers.

Free Feminine WordPress Themes
Vandana Lite packs an impressive punch for a free theme. It features a large header with an email capture built-in, sticky content on the home page, a shop, is mobile friendly and perfect for bloggers and coaches. I love the announcement bar at the top of the page and that the layout is perfect to begin with, not much tinkering needed especially if you’re a newbie that’s not tech-savvy.
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.

This beautiful Mary Kate 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.
