We’re living in a Barbie world this summer, sartorially speaking. Thanks to the recent Barbie-inspired trend, dubbed “Barbiecore,” celebrities have been getting dolled up in playful outfits. The all-pink aesthetic took off alongside much-discussed photos from the set of the upcoming “Barbie” movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

A-listers such as Megan Fox and Kim Kardashian have put their own spin on the hot—and literally hot pink—trend all summer. Pops of pink have also brightened red carpets for months, with celebrities including Lizzo and Sebastian Stan donning designs from Valentino’s bright pink fall 2022 collection. You don’t need designer labels or a Hollywood budget to try the trend, however. Below, we’ve gathered 15 ways to add a bit of Barbiecore to your wardrobe. Come on Barbie, let’s go shopping!

Who gets to be a Barbie doll?:New all-pink Barbiecore trend invites everyone to the Dream House

1. To play dress-up: J.Crew Sweetheart Long Sleeve Mini Dress

Take Barbiecore for a spin with playful pieces.

For a sweetheart style Barbie would probably “heart,” try the Sweetheart Long Sleeve Mini Dress from J.Crew. The simple-yet-stylish design features puff sleeves and a dainty bow on the neckline. It’s available in bright pink in women’s sizes 00 to 24.

2. For a Barbie-inspired bodycon: Forever 21 Halter Mini Dress

Cross a criss-crossed dress off your summer shopping list.

Babydoll dresses aren’t the only way to sport this doll-inspired look. If a ruched bodycon is more your style, try two trends at once with the Forever 21 Halter Mini Dress.

3. For fabulous footwear: Steve Madden Charlize Pink Sandals

You don't need high-fashion labels to wear Barbiecore-esque high heels.

Rock the trend from head to toe with fuchsia footwear like the Steve Madden Charlize Pink Sandals. The design is a more budget-friendly (and ankle-friendly) version of the 7-inch Valentino heels celebrities like Anne Hathaway have worn as of late. The chunky, double platform heels are 5 -inches tall and come in women’s shoe sizes 5 to 11.

4. For cargo pants with a Barbiecore twist: BDG Rave Skater Cargo Jean

This pale pink style has plenty of pockets.

Just call this look “Skater Barbie.” Try the baggy BDG Rave Skater Cargo Jean for a slightly edgier way to tap into the super sweet trend. The high-waisted, 100% cotton pants are both fashionable and functional, as they feature a total of five handy pockets and two utility loops. Shop them in pale pink in women’s sizes 24 to 34.

The ’90s-inspired style even features inside pockets for safely stashing a smartphone or wallet. It’s available in light pink in men’s sizes XS to XXL.

While the memorable metallic style is currently sold out in some sizes, Good American—which we’ve tested—still has plenty of pink pieces in stock. If it’s shimmer you’re looking for, try the High Shine Compression Bodysuit. The stretchy design pairs well with denim for an elevated yet casual look. It’s sold in pale pink in women’s sizes XS to 5XL.
