Hello Milania, You can use both of them. The two of them are correct and you can choose another one meaning the same 'girlish'. It is an adjective and it is used to refer to things related to girls. In some contexts it is used referring to nude women. On the other hand, you can see it just by referring to feminine clothes. See the following examples: A girlie magazine = a magazine with erotic pictures of girls. She looks girlie in that dress = she looks feminine. I hope you find it useful. Don't hesitate to text me if you need more help. Kind regards,
It's girly dear. and it means something related to girls
hello there , both terms are correct , however “girly” is widely used more. It simply means feminine. Hope this helped!
the word is "girly" and it means things that are related to girls (especially younger girls, not women) like the color pink is seen as "girly", colorful hair accessories are also seen as "girly" as opposed to "feminine", which usually refers to things that are related to adult women.
Hello , is that girlie is (slang) of entertainment, involving attractive women or images thereof, usually nude or wearing skimpy clothing while girly is characteristic of a stereotypical girl, very effeminate, sweet. Best Regards
Girly is anything which is suited for the female genders only.
Girly is when a girl acts with style and doesn't get her hands dirty. The opposite is a tomboy who plays rough and looks like a boy.
Girly is the proper spelling and informal but both words can be used..Girlie is a slang. It is an adjective and simply means things that are suitable for girls or women or could be describing a girl or a women. However many find these words offensive and do not approve of it.
Girly means characteristic of or appropriate to a girl or young woman. Girlie means magazines or calendars show photographs od naked or almost naked women
hello Malania it’s better to say girly girly means a female who is feminine
Hey! with a Y is more common... but, English being quite flexible (and, any rules that we have now can / will / and shall be changed / adapted, by the masses, in time), you may use IE. Know, it is not just for ladies, if you want to use it, some-what, pejoratively towards a man (not talking his sexual interests, but just his comportment in consideration... if he acts in an effeminate way), he can be "girly" ... 😊
