When choosing a WordPress Template, it’s so important to find a theme that has an intuitive design for your readers, an easy to use set of building tools for you, and a chic, feminine look to reflect your own style, but more often than not we’re usually left compromising on one or more of our must haves.
As a female blogger, finding a pretty theme for your site that’s both aesthetically pleasing and super functional can often feel like trying to find “The One” on an online dating site; some of the choices are less than flattering, most are dated and cheesy, and hardly any of them will actually fulfill your needs.
Luckily, in recent years the number of female bloggers has risen dramatically, and with it, as has the number of well designed, feminine WordPress themes. Here are a few of our favorites from our fashion forward friends over at BluChic.
Hope you enjoy and make sure to let me know what your favorite one was in the comments below!
