ICYMI, Barbie is having a major moment. While the beloved Mattel doll has been on store shelves for over 60 years now, never before have we had a fashion movement solely dedicated to all things her.
Everywhere you look, it’s Barbie-inspired fashion—and the trend is appropriately being referred to as Barbiecore. High fashion brands like Valentino have debuted pink-centric collections, while mega-celebrities like Meghan Fox, Anne Hathaway, and Kim Kardashian are wearing all-pink, everything-pink, neon-pink ensembles, from mini dresses, knee-high boots, crop tops, leggings—you name it. And Barbiecore fashion just got even more popular this summer now that the highly-anticipated Greta Gerwig film Barbie starring Margot Robbie is about to hit theaters on July 21.
This super-girly, all-pink movement is hard to resist at the moment—and we anticipate that the trend will continue to reign supreme for the remainder of 2023. With everything from platforms to handbags to workout apparel to jeans, you will find pleasingly pink hues everywhere that celebrate all things Barbie.
If you’ve been wanting to partake in the Barbiecore movement and snag a fashionable, fun piece of your own, but don’t know what to start with, we’ve got you covered! Check out our list of the most Barbie-centric pieces your closet needs right now. After all, who wouldn’t want to be a Barbie girl in a Barbie world?
Good American Good Legs Flare Jeans
Leave it up to a Kardashian to take jeans and give them a Barbie-inspired makeover. These baby pink flares from Khloe Kardashian’s apparel company, Good American are a fun way to try the Barbiecore trend. The booty-lifting jeans contour your body’s shape, giving you the perfect fit.
Hill House Home Party Platform
Talk about a high, high heel! These eye-catching, light pink mega pumps are sure to turn heads with their ostrich feathers and crystal brooch embellishments. The Italian-made, Barbie-esque shoes may tower high at 5.5-inches tall with a 1.5-inch platform, but are insanely comfortable and supportive from the moment you put them on until you take them off. Throw them on for a weekend brunch or a night out with the girls; Barbie would approve!
Lulus Sweetheart Bustier Midi Dress
Have a summer wedding coming up and need the perfect frock (and preferably one that you’ll wear more than just once)? Look no further than this Lulus mauve-pink bustier midi dress featuring a Barbie-like sweetheart neckline and chic Swiss dot details. The rose-colored frock feels equally as retro as it does contemporary.
Lululemon Align Bodysuit
So let’s say you want to take your Barbie style from the streets to the gym. Well, Lululemon has you covered with this amazing hot pink onesie. The super-soft bodysuit, made with nylon and elastane, is designed for yoga practice, but is something you’ll struggle to take off even after you leave your workout. We could definitely see Barbie doing major Jane Fonda-style aerobics or even rollerblading down the street in this oh-so-perfect, lightweight bodysuit.
Ariat Casanova Western Boot in Powder Pink
These boots are made for statement-making—walking is optional, but they’re a lot more comfortable than they look! These baby pink cowgirl boots hit just below the knees and look stellar with a babydoll dress or peeking out under your favored wide-leg jeans. They’re definitely not a subdued way to rock the Barbiecore trend, but you won’t regret going with these high-quality western boots in this summer’s color du jour.
Chaser Sun & Moon Rays Zodiac Pullover
For a cozy or athleisure-friendly take on the Barbiecore trend, look no further than this graphic pullover. It’s giving ’80s fitness Barbie (does anyone remember the Barbie Dance Workout VHS from 1992?) in the best way possible.
Skims Fits Everybody Cut Out Long Dress
This hot pink cut-out dress is about to be your new go-to. Skims’ Fits Everybody collection is designed to flatter every body type, and it keeps its promise. The peek-a-boo midi dress features a bodycon silhouette without cutting off your curves or feeling restricted.
