Try as we might to act mature and grown-up, there are certain things from our girlhood we’ll just never get over. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing—just look at the success of Zooey Deschanel. And though we’ll never encourage you to go completely twee, know that you can incorporate girly elements into your adult wardrobe and still be taken seriously.
