The Best Ways to Style the Barbiecore Aesthetic This Year

If you’ve seen an enormous amount of pink items in stores this year, it’s thanks to the Barbiecore aesthetic. The new Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie came out a few weeks ago, leaving everyone obsessed with all things pink and sparkly.

But what is Barbiecore? Where did it come from? This post answers all your questions and helps you create your Barbie dream life, whether you want to know more about the aesthetic’s history or need style inspiration.

What is Barbiecore?

The classic Mattel doll inspired the Barbiecore aesthetic. On the surface, it’s full of hot pink, pretty outfits, and sparkles. But the people who love this aesthetic go beyond appearance to channel Barbie’s feminine nature and self-confidence.

Barbie came out in 1959 as a doll for teen girls, with a mature body and beautiful fashion. Over the years, she’s had hundreds of careers and thousands of outfits that inspired generations of girls. Today, she even has multiple body types and skin and hair colors.

While Barbie has always been a fashion icon, her look only became an aesthetic in the last year. The first images from Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie were released, and since then, the aesthetic exploded. Barbie-themed fashion and merchandise appeared everywhere.

Barbiecore Outfits

To create a basic Barbiecore outfit, you only need to wear bright pink from head to toe. But if you need more inspiration, here are a few ideas.

Casual Barbiecore

Pair flair jeans with a pink, girly graphic tee. Add pink platform sandals, big earrings, and cute accessories to finish the look.
