This summer is all about the Barbie movie and the Barbiecore aesthetic is taking over the world.
Ever since Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling was announced, Barbiecore has been dominating TikTok and Instagram with people ditching their boring wardrobes for all-pink everything.
The pink aesthetic has always been popular on TikTok with mega fans of the colour dubbing themselves as “pinkfluencers” but with the Barbie movie hype thanks to the super famous Barbie cast people are ditching black and buying all pink for summer.
What is Barbiecore?
Barbiecore is the latest aesthetic you need to know for summer. Simply put, Barbiecore is embracing all things pink, especially Barbie’s signature hot pink shade. Barbie-inspired outfits and fashion are taking over TikTok with people opting to wear pink outfits and adding some colour to their wardrobes and the pink aesthetic is perfect for summer.
How to dress in the Barbiecore aesthetic
Barbiecore doesn’t just stop at clothes. Nope, you can embrace the aesthetic in any way. You could have Barbie nails, shoes, hair, accessories the list could go on and on. In short anything in any shade of pink is embracing your inner Barbie. Plus, with the Barbie movie hype you can grab Barbie-themed clothing at loads of places already, so Barbiecore couldn’t be any easier to try out for yourself.
Whether you go all out in a monochrome hot pink look or opt for more muted pink tones, as long as you’re wearing a pink outfit or pink accessories you’re good to go. Don’t forget Barbiecore is about being super extra so glitter, sequins and sparkle will really add to the look. Basically, you want to wear an outfit that would probably be seen on Barbie herself to really nail the Barbiecore pink aesthetic.
