Your ultimate guide to the Barbiecore aesthetic

We spy with our little eye the new aesthetic of the summer: Barbiecore.

Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie proves that you're *never *too old for pink. Since the film started production, we've been obsessing over the set photos. Margot Robbie's costume is the perfect fashion inspo for an iconic Barbie look: cowboy hat, a matching set and lots and lots of pink. 


What is Barbiecore?

Barbiecore is inspired by the vibrant looks of Mattel's Barbie doll. If it's over-the-top, pink or sparkly, that's Barbiecore in a nutshell.

But this aesthetic is about more than just looks: It's is also about being your most genuine self. (Bc Barbie wouldn't want you to be anyone else!)

How to get the look

Step one: Pink. Celebs have been rocking the rose this year—Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa, Conan Gray, Lizzo, you name it. Whether it's magenta, peach or bubblegum, pink is the place to start.


Just remember: The signature of Barbiecore is confidence! As long as you feel good in what you're wearing, Barbie would approve.

All about the eyeshadow


Have you ever seen Barbie without a stand-out graphic liner or a bright shadow? No way. She's never afraid to make a statement with her makeup, and you shouldn't be either. So throw on a cat eye and some rhinestones and strut your stuff.

Time to accessorize


Barbie is always prepared for anything. One minute she's a doctor, the next she's President, so she needs to have her tote stocked. Make sure your bag is packed with the essentials: strawberry Lipsmackers, reusable water bottle, heart-shaped sunnies and extra scrunchies, of course.

She also loves some statement jewelry. Chunky resin rings and colorful beaded necklaces are an absolute must. And remember, if it's pink, it's Barbie.


The Barbie movie isn't coming out until 2023 (insert crying emoji here), but until then we can channel Barbie through our out-of-this-world Barbiecore fits. And don't be afraid to add some glitter! Like Barbie said, "Get your sparkle on. Show this world where you belong."
