Everything You Need to Master The Barbiecore Trend

There is no doubt that the color pink has been established within the fashion industry as a symbol of creative confidence, and Barbiecore, the most recent trend to play with the magnetic hue does not stray far from the iconic image of its namesake that immediately comes to mind.  

Barbiecore is exactly what it sounds like. Rooted in an obsession with perfectly pink tones and glittering accessories, this latest fashion trend is all about channeling the iconic doll’s feminine and playful style. One of the biggest catalysts for this fabulously fetching trend? Greta Gerwig’s upcoming film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. 

From bright pink flared pants and cowgirl hats to neon green roller blades and pink Cadillacs, Robbie and Gosling embody the Barbiecore aesthetic we all wish to achieve. 

Characterized by the infusion of modern silhouettes and elements of Y2K fashion, Barbiecore can be found everywhere from the streets of New York and the feeds of Instagram’s most influential to the runway collections of high fashion designers – most notably that of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection for Valentino.

Intrigued? From pretty pink purses to magenta mini dresses, CF rounds up a list of essentials you need to perfect the Barbiecore aesthetic and Kacey Musgraves Met Gala look circa 2019. Ready? Come on Barbie, let’s go shopping.
