Let us learn more Barbie and about Barbiecore!
Do you remember when the “coastal grandmother” look was all the rage? Well, there’s a new fashion trend that everyone is talking about, and it’s all because of Barbie.
This style, called “Barbiecore” for lack of plastic, is great! The pink look has become a staple of fashion in 2022, but the newest trend is to wear it in the hottest color.
Since pictures of Margot Robbie on set last June, when she was being filmed as the famous Mattel doll Barbie, many people have been thinking a lot about pink. This is because the highly anticipated Barbie movie is coming out on July 21.
Now that the official Barbie clip is out, it’s safe to say that all things pink are here to stay, along with her well-known accessories. Barbiecore is sure to be a big trend this summer, what with her pink plastic bags and pink platform pumps (when she’s not rollerblading, of course).
But the film directed by Greta Gerwig isn’t the only reason we live in a real-life “Barbie Land.” In fact, the fad craze has become more popular since the 2022 Valentino Fall runway show appeared in March.
When did this Barbiecore Trend actually start?
Since she first came out in 1959, Barbie has been in the center, but the Mattel-made doll has been a part of entertainment in more than one way over the years.
Many people have taken on a “Let’s go Barbie” attitude lately because of the Valentino collection and the future Barbie movie. Barbiecore has been on the rise for the past few years.
Since 2019, a lot of Barbiecore Pinterest boards have been made, and the term was recently a popular word on TikTok, where it was seen by nearly 15 million people.
Last July was also a busy month for searches on Etsy. According to Good Morning America, searches for hot pink fashion items were up 35% in the three months before July 2021 compared to the three months before that.
Do you want to dress up like a Barbie? Here is how to dress up like Barbiecore!
There’s only one colour that captures what Barbicore is all about, and you got it: pink!
“Barbiecore” is all about accepting bright colours, especially the doll’s signature hot pink, in everyday life, Etsy trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson said. “This is a welcome mood-booster after the last few years.”
She also said, “Many people long for simpler, sunnier, and less stressful times, so it’s only natural that this ’80s-inspired, unapologetically pink style is the ‘it’ look of the summer.”
The shapes range from rubber minidresses to tiny fit-and-flares, and the details range from feathers to sparkles, which are a Barbie staple.
There are a lot of different kinds of shoes, from super-high pumps to jelly block heels. Also, hair clips made of plastic and trinkets that are holographic or fluorescent are great adds.
Even though hot pink is the most popular, bubblegum pink and fuchsia also fit the Barbiecore style. The colour is only one part of the style, though. The other part is dressing like it’s the 1980s or the early 2000s.
Who among the famous Celebs has worn Barbie clothes?
Celebrities have been taking fashion cues from Barbie for a long time, like Hailey Bieber’s throwback Halloween outfit in 2016 and Kacey Musgraves’ Moschino moment at the Met Gala in 2019. However, the doll’s impact on pop culture is stronger than ever now.
After the Valentino show in March 2022, there was a lot of hot pink at that year’s Grammy Awards, from Justin Bieber’s bright fuchsia beanie to Saweetie’s eye-catching outfit.
Soon after, the trend kept going at Coachella in April of that year, when stars wore the look on stage. Conan Grey wore a special Valentino dress, and star Harry Styles looked amazing in pink feathers, which surprise guest Lizzo also wore.
The colour was also seen on the red carpet at the Met Gala in 2022. Sebastian Stan wore all pink from head to toe, and Glenn Close wore an electric pink suit.
A-listers have also had Barbiecore-themed birthday parties, such as Khloe Kardashian’s 38th birthday party in June and Robbie’s 32nd birthday party in July (she even had a big pink Barbie birthday cake on set)
What is the reason behind this Trend?
Since it was first made in 1959, the famous Barbie doll has changed a lot and become more and more open-minded over time. Christie was the first black Barbie doll, which came out in 1969. In 2016, as part of its #TheDollEvolves campaign, Mattel gave Barbie a 21st century makeover.
She now has curvy, short, and tall bodies, as well as different skin tones and wigs. The same goes for her male partner, Ken, who has also changed since he first came out.
As of 2020, the Barbie Fashionistas line has 176 dolls, both male and female, with nine different body types, 35 skin tones and 94 hairstyles. In 2022, the toy company added a doll with behind-the-ear hearing aids, a doll with an artificial leg and a Ken doll with vitiligo to its Fashionistas line.
