Best Google Font Combinations and Color Palettes for a Feminine Website

Design Resources

Colors and Fonts… What a challenge!

If you’re building your own website and you’re not an experienced designer, you’ve probably already noticed that fonts and colors are a huge deal.

Like…

  1. There are thousands of possibilities to choose from
  2. Fonts and colors are accountable for your website’s (and therefore your brand’s) personality

So…

You might be wondering:

How do I choose the perfect font combination and the right color palette for it?

How do I put colors together?

Is that font a good, solid typeface?

Will these fonts and colors really represent my brand?

I get your feeling. It’s confusing and overwhelming.

So what do you do?

Fortunately, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. If you won’t be coding your site from scratch, then why would you design your brand from scratch?

If you want to make sure your design will work, the smartest thing you can do is look for inspiration and rely on already created font combinations and color palettes.

In this post you’ll find 18 font and color blends for feminine websites you can trust

Each one is like a toolkit, with style guides you can use to actually build your brand.

Look for the one that you feel better represents you and just grab the fonts and colors it uses. Apply them to your website. And go make yourself a cup of tea, you deserve it. ☕️

There is more than one way to have a “feminine” styled website

Feminine can mean delicate, elegant, romantic, but also vibrant, strong and powerful.

I put together a highly versatile collection of font and color combinations that can serve any kind of feminine modern websites.

If it’s for your personal brand, your blog, your business, an organization or an online magazine, you’ll find in these ideas the perfect match for your project.

How to use Google Fonts and the color palette on your website

If you’re using one of our WordPress themes, then all you need to do is go to Theme Options » Typography in your dashboard.

You’ll find a dropdown menu for the Headings and another one for the Body font. That menu offers you all available fonts from Google, so just choose the one you need and click Save.

After that, go to the Design tab in Theme Options and copy-paste the color codes you liked into the Color Palette option. Now these colors will be available for you to use every time you see a color picker in your Artisan theme.

If you’re not using one of our themes, here’s what to do to use the fonts you’ve chosen:

Step 1: Embed the fonts into your website by adding the embed code as the first element in the < head > of your HTML document.

Step 2: Declare the fonts that will be used for body and headings in your styles.css file.

You’ll find both the embed code and the CSS code below each combination, so you can copy-paste them to your files.

9. Satisfy + Halant + Montserrat

Now, to a friendly-er combination.

I must confess, I’m not a fan of the script fonts available in Google Fonts. And I also don’t think a script font is suitable for all the headings on a website. Why? Because its strong personality makes it less legible and also because it might fatigue your readers.

But I thought I can make some of them work. And this is the case for Satisfy, a script font with a friendly personality.

This combination is joyful and sweet. And it uses Halant for the body and Montserrat for the buttons, to equilibrate Satisfy’s unique presence.

Embed code:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Halant|Montserrat:700|Satisfy" rel="stylesheet">

.button {

    font-size: 13px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    letter-spacing: 3px;
}

10. Montserrat + Josefin Sans

Montserrat may be one of the most gorgeous and versatile typefaces in the Google Fonts collection. According to which weight you use, or if in all caps or lowercase, you’ll get totally different results.

Together with the refined Josefin Sans and a very trendy color palette, you get a this combination to use if you want to achieve a contemporary and cool feminine website.

11. Libre Baskerville + Work Sans

Libre Baskerville is a beautiful serif typeface that can serve both headings and body text. In this case, by using the bold weight for the headings and the regular one for the body, we get a harmonious and solid combination.

Then Work Sans comes in handy for the buttons. And the color palette gives the final touch for a classic, confident look and feel.
