21 Pink Items To Shop For Big Barbiecore Vibes
Come on Barbie, let’s go party.
If you’ve found yourself here, reading this article, then you’ve likely already noticed that Barbiecore is very much trending. Inarguably the color of the summer, the pink-on-pink-on-pink aesthetic has been ubiquitous as of late — on TikTok, the red carpet, movie screens, and beyond.
The trend can be largely credited to Pierpaolo Piccioli’s truly epic “Valentino Pink” collection when the designer sent 48 electric fuchsia pieces down a glossy pink runway at Paris Fashion Week this spring. Since then, we’ve seen a slew of celebs — Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Anne Hathaway, Gigi Hadid, and more — step out in fierce fuchsia looks from the monochromatic collection.
Riding the pink wave, Margot Robbie is starring in the new live-action Barbie movie, nudging the pink movement one step further. Everyone from Lil Nas X to Hailey Bieber to Kim and Khloe Kardashian have been turning pretty-in-pink looks. Scrolling through your feed, it’s a given that you’ll see a famous face wearing a life-size (Tyra Banks joke intended) ‘fit worthy of Malibu Barbie.
Though the traditionally-feminine hue is still being worn in the usual girlie fashion, subsets of all styles are adopting the look. Even the all-black-everything crowd is moving away from their neutral-only wardrobe to make room for shades of bubblegum. Going hand-in-hand with the revival of early-2000s pop-punk style, black and pink pairings are also on the rise, taking note from icons like Megan Fox and MGK.
Perhaps this color trend can be attributed to an inherent need for a bit of brightness during the dark times we’re living in. After all, sporting a pink outfit that screams come on Barbie, let’s go party is a guaranteed mood-booster. Consider it dopamine dressing.
Color psychologist and author of The Little Book of Colour Karen Haller told Who What Wear: "Color is a great way to lift our spirits and boost our moods in an instant.” Haller further explained, “we instinctively feel and behave differently around colors because of how we take the color in through our eyes and through to the part of our brain where our emotions reside.”
No matter the reason for the influx of this vivid hue, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. So how do you get the aesthetic for yourself? The answer is simple: Wear. Pink. Lots of it.
Metallic magenta dresses, bubblegum hair clips, and baby pink sunglasses that would look right at home in the front seat of a matching convertible — keep scrolling to peep the *hottest* hot pink, Barbiecore items inspired by the legend herself.
