Prints, polka dots and all things pink

According to Mean Girls, “On Wednesdays, we wear pink”. But when it comes to replicating the best Barbie Fashion trends, a bubble-gum based outfit is always a good idea!
Embracing Barbie’s unique sense of style begins with curating a wardrobe where cute meets couture. As well as the obvious pops of pink, one of the key aspects of Barbie’s style is her love for vibrant, bold patterns. Opt for floral prints, polka dots, and playful stripes to channel the spirit of the iconic doll.

For a more casual Barbie-inspired outfit, try pairing a graphic tee with a high-waisted skirt or jeans. Otherwise, don’t shy away from experimenting with different dress lengths – with Margot Robbie showing that Barbie was ready to embrace everything from mini to midi to maxi, to suit various occasions.
