Get ready to embrace the pink phenomenon as the Barbie movie release approaches. Looking back at the 90s and early 2000s, Barbie captured the hearts of countless little girls, and her signature pink obsession became a fashion statement, now known as "Barbiecore." Celebrities like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton embraced this trend with their Barbie pink outfits.
The resurgence of Barbiecore gained momentum when images of Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie in Barbie outfits from the movie set surfaced in June 2022. However, this trend's comeback wasn't solely due to the movie; another contributing factor was Valentino's pink PP collection, which wowed everyone with its bright pink hue the previous year. Over time, Barbiecore has been steadily growing in popularity and reached its peak with the release of the movie trailer this year, making everyone excited for its arrival.
But the Barbiecore aesthetic is more than just pink; it also includes a pastel color palette featuring beautiful blues, purples, and yellows, as well as playful prints that exude a bold and unapologetically feminine vibe. The current trend encourages everyone to embrace their inner Barbiecore babe and conquer the world with confidence. To help you achieve your ideal Barbiecore outfits that suit your personality, here are some Barbie outfit ideas by London Rag that you can try out this season
