Everything you need to know about the Barbie trend
A character as iconic as Barbie was sure to spark interest. Greta Gerwig’s funny yet thought-provoking movie has focused our attention back on Barbie, a part of many of our childhoods, making her relevant for the modern era. Yes, the movie has some important messages, but we can’t help but be drawn in by the fashion. Pink is fun, eye-catching, and incredibly flattering, so it’s no wonder fashionistas are snapping up hot pink styles in their droves in tribute to Barbie.
A trend for everyone
While Barbie may hold some treasured memories from childhood, there’s nothing childish about Barbie in 2023. Let’s face it, the past few years have been difficult, we sat at home in our loungewear and PJs, so it’s no wonder that people are jumping on the Barbie bandwagon to make fashion fun again.
If you’re normally shy of bold colors, the good news is that there are plenty of grown-up ways to wear the Barbie trend. From sophisticated jumpsuits to classic hot pink gowns, à la Liz Hurley, there are plenty of ways you can embrace the look in a way that makes sense to you.
Have fun with it.
In a world that can feel gray from time to time, it’s nice to inject a bit of color. Going all out with your hot pink looks is an ideal way to showcase your personality and liven things up too. Look for details like bows, ruffles, sequins, and tulle – anything that elevates your outfit to help you make the most of it. Now’s the time to have fun with your feminine side, so go as over the top as you like.
How to make the most of the Barbie trend
Are you ready to unleash your inner Barbie? Here are our tips for making it work for you:
Choose styles that are full of detail
Hot pink dresses can make a striking look, and adding some further details will help you stand out from the crowd. Our latest prom dress collection features styles full of stunning details, including ruffles, sequins, beading, and embroidery. These detailed looks will make an impression, making them ideal for a special occasion.
Opt for floaty styles for a softer look.
Not everyone wants to stand out from the crowd, and that’s ok. Barbie-pink looks can work for everyone, no matter your style. Choosing softer looks with floaty fabrics and flowing silhouettes can make the look subtler, allowing you to enjoy the pink while still feeling comfortable.
If you’re worried about going head-to-toe in pink, you could always switch to separates to help you introduce pink to your wardrobe gradually. From suits to pink tops, outerwear and accessories, you can still wear the look without making a bold style statement.
Fitted, structured styles add a sense of formality.
As we’ll know from Barbie, Legally Blonde, and many other on-screen favorites, pink isn’t always taken seriously. But this year’s Barbiecore trend is here to change that. For more sophisticated, formal looks, keep the lines clean and keep details muted. Many beautiful occasion dresses come in hot pink shades but retain that classic air to make an impression.
Go all out with monochromatic looks.
The Barbie trend couldn’t have come better if you like to go all out. There are many things to love about seeing how people are wearing their pink looks, and one of them is the monochromatic, maximalism looks that people are sporting. Going head-to-toe in pink from your head to your toes, and even through to your nails and makeup, creates a fierce style statement, helping you to own the trend.
Avoid color clashes
While there aren’t many rules for the Barbie trend, one thing you’ll want to avoid is color clashes. Pair pink with more pink, or use neutral shades to break up the color. During the summer, white and beige have made the perfect pairing for pink looks and could continue through to the fall.
If you want to wear your hot pink looks with other colors, consider shopping for patterned clothing that combines colors without looking too busy.
Add some glamor to your hair and makeup.
The Barbie look wouldn’t be complete without some great hair and makeup to match. Margot Robbie’s Barbie had a very Bridget Bardot-esque feel, with big bangs and voluminous blow drys adding plenty of fun and glamor to the look.
On the makeup side, choose a shade of pink that suits your skin tone, keeping the rest of your look toned down to let your lips do the talking. Full, fluttery lashes will be the perfect way to complete your look and recreate some old-school glamor.
And there you have it! After all the hype and build-up, Barbie has been a hit, and her fashion legacy will continue for a long while. At Jovani, we have a huge selection of hot pink dresses ready for your next occasion. We have a fantastic range from pink prom dresses to wedding dresses and cocktail dresses.
