You’ve likely seen the term pop up on social media. You can’t miss it on TikTok. But, what is Barbiecore? It’s the hottest of hot pink trends. Certainly, you can guess it has something to do with Barbie! Yes, that Barbie. The 1950s iconic doll, who dated Ken and lived in a dream house. Now, Barbie vibes are seeping into our fashion. From furniture to clothing, makeup to jewelry, and even music and movie…you cannot escape Barbiecore.
Details. You want details. Think pink. That’s it. Sweet, girly-girl, pretty in pink, life is roses and pink champagne kind of vibes. And why not, we survived a pandemic, after all. Like every good trend, what’s old is new again. Much of this fashion moment is being brought to you by our vintage lives. We love a throwback. Repurposed trends give us all the feels, especially when it brings up memories of being a kid playing with our Barbie Dolls, or the movie Pretty in Pink. Or wait, who could forget Elle Woods?
