The Barbiecore aesthetic is in full swing this season. Take a peek at Pinterest or TikTok and you will find so much inspiration for this trending style. I am sure many of you are wondering: What is Barbiecore? And why is it so popular? And what inspired this fun, bubbly and everything-pink trend… So let me break it down for you all!
The Barbiecore trend started making waves when some behind-the-scenes footage of the upcoming Barbie movie was shared by none other than Margot Robbie, who plays Barbie in the movie premiering July 2023. Not only will a Pinterest search give you all the popular Barbie-inspired celeb looks, but you will also find Barbie collaborations with major brands like KITH, Fun Boy and Balmain to name a few.
Hot Pink Holiday Gift Ideas (Think: Barbiecore)
I personally love all things pink and I’m into the idea of gifting a Barbiecore aesthetic-inspired gift this holiday season! Especially for all the ’90s babes who, like me, are living for all the hot pink and ’90s nostalgia evoked by this trend.
Christmas gifts, Hannukah presents, Kwanzaa celebrations, Boxing Day, budget-friendly or designer — let’s get festive with pretty-in-pink pieces to give (or keep for yourself) this holiday season!
This winter season I think we are going to see quite a few babes rocking pops of pink for their holiday dresses and new years eve outfits. I love a good slip dress — what’s great about this one is that it’s such a good price point, which makes trying the hot pink trend a little more approachable. This pink slip dress has a gorgeous side slit and an elastic back for a more flexible fit in the chest area. Layer it with a cute pair of boots and an oversized neutral-toned sweater and you are all set for your next holiday party look!
2a/b | Good American Bodysuit & Faux-Leather Pants
Leave it to Good American to give us the full-on Barbiecore look from head to toe! If you are wanting all things pink when it comes to attire, then Good American is the place to look. Both the bodysuit & better than leather pants are absolute perfection!
Nothing says holiday present like an ultra-cozy chunky sweater. I personally love the oversized fit of Free People sweaters and think the tortoiseshell detailing on this sweater is so pretty.
If you aren’t looking to wear the Barbiecore aesthetic, then try incorporating vibrant pinks into your home decor. This ultra-lightweight herringbone throw blanket would look great draped on your couch or bed!
Avec Les Filles is one of my personal favorite brands for winter jackets, and they totally nailed it with their pretty-in-pink puffer coat. It’s sleek yet trendy and the black zipper detailing and oversized pockets add a little something extra to this overall minimalist look.
Let’s be real… most of us spend the majority of the winter months in sweatpants, so why not spice up your sweats game with a fun new color?!
If you are anything like me, then you likely tend to gravitate towards all-neutral looks. I love wearing neutral monochromatic looks and think adding a vibrantly colored bag takes my outfits to the next level. This Yuzefi mini tote is absolutely crush-worthy! I love how mini and structured it is and think it would look amazing with any monochromatic neutral look as well as jeans and a white tee.
It never fails that every year my mom will ask for one of two things for Christmas… A robe or a pair of slippers. And my personal favorite slippers are the UGG scuffette slippers — they are warm and cozy and now come in Barbie pink!
I had my first taste of the Barbiecore aesthetic back in January when I was in Miami. I popped into KITH and as luck would have it they had a Barbie X KITH collaboration in store and I wanted every single thing. I ended up purchasing this ultra cute and minimal Barbie graphic tee and a hat, both of which have been some of my most worn pieces this year. Now that it’s getting colder I have the graphic crewneck sweater on my wishlist!
10 | Slip Scrunchies
My favorite scrunchies are the silk scrunches from Slip and I love the vibrancy of their pink collection. These scrunchies make great gifts, are such amazing quality, and totally worth the price.
I hope your holiday season is as fun and vibrant as the all-things-pink Barbiecore aesthetic!
