Are you ready to immerse yourself in a pink paradise and paint the town pink? Last summer, the internet exploded with excitement when Margot Robbie was spotted filming Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie movie, catapulting Barbiecore into the spotlight as the hottest new trend. Since then, shades of pink have been popping all over the place, from prestigious runways to glamorous red carpets, and everywhere in between.
Although my wardrobe predominantly consists of neutral tones, there’s no denying that pink holds a special place in my heart. It’s always been my favorite color, particularly that vibrant, eye-catching bright pink shade that instantly brings to mind the iconic Barbie.
Personally, I couldn’t be more thrilled to embrace the Barbiecore trend. It’s like dressing in dopamine, an irresistible infusion of joy and self-expression. In this article, I’ll be sharing a collection of fabulous Barbiecore pink outfit ideas along with various ways to incorporate this trend into your own personal style.
So, come on Barbies, let’s go party!
Barbiecore Pink Outfit Ideas + How to Get the Aesthetic
What is the Barbiecore Trend?
In contrast to the minimalist appeal of quiet luxury, Barbiecore emerges as an ultra-girly aesthetic that indulges in the charms of pink, glitter, and maximalism. This trend draws inspiration from the fabulous life of Barbie, the timeless muse and icon of the renowned Mattel doll. It’s a trend that celebrates vibrant hot pinks, sometimes venturing into kitschy territory, but never failing to be boring.
Even before the exciting announcement of the Barbie movie, Barbiecore had already made its mark on high fashion runways and red carpet events. Moschino’s Barbie-inspired runway collection in 2015, the 2019 Met Gala’s theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” and Valentino’s bold hot pink outfits from their 2022 autumn/winter collection all paid homage to the everlasting allure of Barbie. With the arrival of the highly anticipated Barbie movie, the obsession with Barbie is bigger than ever.
While living in Barbie’s dreamhouse might not be a reality just yet, you can dress like her. In this post you’ll find several outfit ideas and accessories inspired by Barbie’s iconic closet. (Keep scrolling for an extensive roundup of everything pink, ready for you to shop.)
8 Barbiecore Outfit Ideas to Try
Wedding Guest Barbie
Dress to impress this wedding season. Try a silky pink dress, then add some fun metallic heels, a pink clutch, and some bright pink lipstick. While other pink outfits inspired by Barbie may be a little more over the top, be sure to keep things here on the more minimal side. After all, you’re still at a wedding. In addition, hot pink makes a big statement without overshadowing the bride and groom.
I’m a firm believer that when your workout outfits are cute, you’re more likely to hit the gym. (But don’t worry, it’ll stay our little secret even if you just wear your hot pink leggings to run errands.)
Barbie would never let her pajamas be an afterthought, so why should you? I always love a pair of cute PJs!
Things that just make sense: a hot pink swimsuit paired with a summer tan.
Classic Beach Barbie
If you don’t like to wear pink, here’s a Barbie inspired outfit just for you: a poolside look inspired by the original Barbie’s striped black and white swimsuit. Don’t forget classic red nails and also some gold jewelry.
Lovers of tweed, shift dresses, ballet flats, and pearls – rejoice!
I’ve always loved the look of matching blazer and suit outfit. Shake up your corporate work wardrobe with a pink blazer and matching pants. Then add a structured purse for added sophistication and professional polish.
Try a pink linen dress or a printed summer maxi dress, and lean into the Barbiecore camp aesthetic with cheeky accessories. It’s vacation, have some fun!
I can’t talk about Barbie inspired outfits without including pink shoes. Adding a touch of pink to your jeans and a tank is an easy way to lean into the trend without going full on Barbie.
