1. Jacket and denim
When drawing a cute outfit, you can always keep things simple and draw outrageous hair!
This combination works and it looks really sassy.
In this drawing, Lele has included a simple jacket and gone with the all-popular jeans. It works and looks great for teenagers or young adults.
2. Harry Potter-themed gowns
Who does not remember the famous Yule Ball in the 4th Harry Potter movie?
If you’re looking for ideas to draw a cute outfit, just draw something similar to Hermione’s dress from the Yule ball? Or better yet, draw Hermione herself!
3. Sweater and Sweatpants
Never underestimate the power of a bright sweater with sweatpants.
Pair it up with big glasses, and you’ve got one of the cutest outfits imaginable.
I love this post because the artist has drawn her own outfit and it looks super cute. If you’re drawing a nerdy character or a character who is comfortably sitting in her own room reading or creating – this is the perfect outfit!
4. Flannel shirt and tank top
If you’re looking for a nice tomboyish outfit to draw on your character, just go with a lovely flannel shirt and a tank top.
It not only gives your character an adventurous and sporty look, but it will really differentiate her from the regular girly and cute characters.
5. A simple cotton dress and belt
I really like keeping things simple as you can see – it’s what makes a cute outfit seem effortless.
Another great idea is to include a simple cotton dress and then fasten it at the waist with a neat and wide belt.
In this illustration, the artist has also included an undershirt to make the simplicity stand out.
6. A girly sweater with plain jeans
If you do want to add some flair to your character, you can don on a very girly pink sweater like this and add accessories to match but make sure you keep the jeans plain and simple so that your character is not too flamboyant.
If you’re looking for cute outfits to draw, this is your best bet!
7. Trendy outfits
Or you can draw a couple of trendy outfits like this. This artist has gone out of her way to draw 3 trendy outfits. The basic premise is to include a colorful top and a nice loose pair of shorts or jeans or skirt.
This combination works for teens and young adults.
Remember to choose a complementing hairstyle.
8. Simple black top with colored pants
You can go the other way around too.
Add a plain black top (but make it a sleeveless or halter neck to add some flair to the top) and then pair it with nice brightly colored jeans.
Because both the colors are bright and dark, the artist decided to draw white blonde hair to accompany this cute outfit and it works!
9. Flower Power top
Flowers always add a huge dose of cuteness to any outfit.
If you’re looking to make your character look naive and young, you can always add flowers to her outfit.
In this outfit, the artist has decided to draw a nice crop top with flowers and pair it with high-rise jeans.
10. Clothes from Target
If you’re looking to make your character look very simple or she’s doing chores, then you can don her in simple clothes that you’d get from Target or Walmart.
You can’t always dress your character in fancy wear so you can just draw a simple teeshirt and jeans. Remember to add accessories to bring out that spark in your character!
11. Pant-suit for your character
If you want to add an air of professionalism to your character, then a pant-suit is a cute and trendy outfit that your girl can sport.
Just go with an extra bright color like pink, purple or teal to make your character the star of the show.
A great way to add youth to your character is to add overalls!
Brownie points if you can make them a super bright shade and then pair it with bangs! Voila! Your character will not only be cute but super young.
This is a super cute outfit to draw!
13. Crop top and flared jeans
Add a simple crop top and pair it with flared jeans.
They’ve definitely not gone out of fashion. To give your character that 70’s vibe touch, just add some flower power to your clothes!
14. Long sleeve crop top and jeans
Never underestimate long-sleeved cropped tops.
They are super cute and give your character that much-needed spunk! just pair it up with super long pants to give your character that sporty and trendy look. I even have a post here on how to draw skinny jeans step by step.
15. Vest, pants, and cap
Although this girl is sporting a “bad girl” vibe, isn’t she cute?
This is one of the cutest outfits you can draw on your character while infusing such a dark and playful vibe. The cap adds a nice touch, I must say.

17. Cute floral dress
If you’re looking to add a very chic and feminine look to your character, then just add a super cute floral dress. Make sure you spaghetti straps to make your dress chicer! You can go with a nice powder-blue or lilac dress to bring that softness out of your character.
18. Tight bodice dress
To make your character look more regal and sophisticated, you can put her in a tight bodice that has a low neck.
In this beautiful piece of art, the character has a dark dress so the artist has contrasted her hair by making her hair light blonde.
19. Hoodie and yoga pants
