Have you dreamed of being a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world? Here's your invitation to the dreamhouse of Barbiecore. Life in plastic can be truly fantastic when you use your imagination and create in over-the-top femininity and pink, pink and more pink! The obsession with all things Barbie takes us all back to playing with America's favorite doll and the idea we can achieve anything with her famous catchphrase, "you can be anything."
The rise of Barbiecore is being fueled by the highly anticipated Barbie movie that's coming out in 2023 starring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox and Anne Hathaway have all embraced this ultra-girly look.
Even the fashion world is all about hot pink thanks to Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli's signature shade of pink seen in the brand's 2022 Paris Fashion Week show. Forever 21 has launched a Barbie collection and the Balmain X Barbie collaboration is getting lots of attention. The hashtag Barbiecore is one of the most popular trending hashtags on TikTok with over 8.1 million views.
Barbiecore is more than a trend, it's a mood that celebrates empowerment, feminine strength, fashion and fun. This global craze consists of wearing an all-pink aesthetic, including everything from a hot pink dress to hot pink shoes to hot pink jewelry. And, matching your dress to your purse, jewelry and shoes (and even hair!). This Barbie-inspired hot pink can be worn for every occasion, from weddings to work, date nights and casual days.
Take advantage of this pink moment by designing jewelry that's popping in this iconic color (and date-worthy for Ken). While hot pink is the essence of Barbiecore, other hues of pink such as rose, blush and fuchsia are also coveted. Barbie is also fond of any other brights, so mixing in other pops of ‘80s-inspired neon is a go.
