3 Ways to Style the Barbiecore Trend

The long-anticipated release of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is upon us, and there is no better reason to dive back into the Barbiecore trend that was revived in 2021. Margot Robbie, who plays Barbie in the live-action film, has exemplified Barbiecore throughout her press tour, but Barbiecore has also been spotted on celebrities such as Nikki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, and Paris Hilton. Whether you’re dressing up for the movie premiere or simply looking for on-trend outfit inspo, here are three elements of Barbiecore that anyone can incorporate into their summer look:

When you think of Barbiecore, chances are you’re thinking pink. With shades ranging from pastel pink to fuschia, incorporating pink into your outfit is sure to give it a Barbie-esque flair. Don’t be afraid to overdo it, either–the more pink, the more Barbie.

Barbiecore can span across a variety of clothing items, from pants to skirts to sweaters, but generally, Barbiecore includes a lot of dresses, skirts, and crop tops. To go for a more Y2K-inspired Barbie look, opt for a pair of low-rise jeans or denim mini skirt, and pair it with the Barbie-est crop top you can find. For a more modern look, opt for a matching set for a cohesive, fashion-forward look.

To accessorize your Barbie-themed look, opt for items that look straight out of Mattel’s toy kits. A chunky pink heel, cat-eye or heart-shaped sunglasses, and a simple, bold-colored handbag are must-haves for this look, surely adding a nice finishing touch to any Barbie outfit.
