Inside: Cutest barbie outfit ideas that will make you look like you are straight out of Barbieland.
It’s not a shocker that with the new Barbie movie coming out with Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken… people are looking for all sorts of ways to celebrate. I think the general consensus is that we all need to dress up when it’s time to go to theaters. But how does one dress like Barbie? I can help with this!
Actually, before this movie was made…Barbie’s aesthetic was already gaining popularity amongst younger people.
They were wearing lots of pink and calling on their inner Barbie. It’s awesome to see people get so excited about fashion!
So today, I wanted to show you some of my all time favorite Barbie looks that will teach you how to dress like the legend herself! I also wanted to give you some of the best tips to achieve the Barbiecore look.
What is Barbiecore fashion?
This is the best place to start when you are beginning to fall down the rabbit hole of a new style. So…what is Barbiecore?
Barbiecore is essentially a fashion style that is heavily based on, you guessed, Barbie. You’ll see that this style includes lots of bright pinks and softer feminine looks. I really think you can make this look your own, though, as long as you have the signature pink down!
There are a few ways around pink if you are not a fan. The first is to include another solid, bright color. Pink wasn’t the only thing she wore; it was just the most iconic. So you do have some wiggle room. What I love about this trending style is that it has so many different ways to achieve it.
Barbie wasn’t just one thing; she was a jack of all trades! Pilots by day, mermaid by night. She’s been a Princess, a Doctor…you name it, and she probably has it under her belt. So style yourself after your favorite version!
What do you wear to a Barbie themed party?
So…you are going to a Barbie themed party that isn’t for children. This is going to be so much fun! As I said above, there are a million ways that you can make your Barbie look your own. But I figured it would be best to give you some of my top tips for creating an ultimate Barbie look that would make the icon herself proud.
Tip #1: Bring On the Pink
Okay, you knew that this one was coming. Of course, the simplest way to rock a Barbie look is to add some prink to the look. And I am not just saying something as in you throw on a pair of pink sunglasses at the end(how cute, though). But rather the whole fit needs to be dripping in it.
This is a surefire way to achieve the Barbie look! If you want to look at some jumpsuit outfit ideas, I think you could really create a wonderful Barbie look with these.
Barbie Outfit Ideas Tip #2: Accessories
Accessories are a must-have when you are dressing like Barbie. That girl never leaves a single thing out of her outfits. She’s got matching shoes, hair clips, purses…even her MAKEUP matches. Well, most of the time.
So if you want to look put together like Barbie, then you need to add more than your run-of-the-mill accessories. You can look to tip #3 for advice on how to find those!
Tip #3: Add a Barbie Hairstyle
If you want a completed Barbie look, then you have to make sure your hair is on theme too. You could do so many different hairstyles to reflect Barbie. Her most iconic one is her high ponytail! It doesn’t matter if your hair isn’t blonde. Just go for it anyway!
Tip #4: Don’t Be Afraid To Be Extra
If you are getting excited about this outfit idea but have that little worried feeling in your gut, then I am glad you are reading this. Be as extra as you want. It literally does not matter what other people think. Be the kind of person that gets fully into their dress-up challenge, not the one who just puts a ‘Hi I’m Barbie’ name tag on and calls it good.
Those people are lame. And anyway, we are only here experiencing this earth for 100 years if we are lucky. Why waste that holding yourself back from having fun?
