Barbiecore Over 40

Are you familiar with the Barbiecore trend? It’s basically all about pink, hot pink in fact. It’s a dopamine induced style sensation and it’s taking the world by storm. Stylist Samantha Brown says it’s anything that references this fabulous world of Barbie. I’ll leave it right there and let you allow your imagination to run wild! But is Barbiecore over 40 doable?

There are many ways to incorporate the Barbiecore trend. It might be in clothing, accessories, or even make up. The Barbiecore aesthetic has gained momentum as the Margot Robbie & Ryan Gosling Barbie movie is getting attention. The movie is not due out until July, 2023, so don’t expect the trend to die down anytime soon.

At first thought you might equate Barbiecore with being a little girl. But this trend is far from that. In fact many are saying feminism has finally embraced pink as a strong color. If you think about it, Barbie has done everything, hasn’t she? Why can’t women be beautiful, smart, and powerful? This trend allows is to step away from menswear and embrace our femininity.

Because it’s trending, you’ll see hot pink pop up in all kinds of places. Accessories like belts, handbags, shoes or even jewelry can be an easy way to incorporate the theme. In fact, that may be the easiest way to dip your toe into the Barbiecore pool.

Already someone who’s comfortable in pink? Go for it in either separates or an entire outfit. I found this dress in June when we were on a weekend getaway. As soon as I put it on I knew it was coming home with me. I found a link for the dress, it is not an affiliate link. I am wearing a medium.

There are so many ways to participate in the trend with very sophisticated pieces. JCrew has a gorgeous blazer and dress in hot pink that says mature woman approved! Take a look at this sweater – a nice way to take Barbiecore into Fall and Winter!

When to Wear Barbiecore

Barbiecore is all about feeling happy and good – which is so needed when life feels hard. So wear it anytime you want a dopamine boost! Personally I think wearing Barbiecore to a girl’s night out, women’s retreat, or even a party is fun and easy. I wore my pink dress to brunch when I was in Chicago. It was the perfect occasion!
