Barbiecore has been having quite a moment over the past few months, and with the release of the Barbie movie, it’s stronger than ever. This fashion trend is all the rage right now, and if you trying to embrace it, here are five things that you should and shouldn’t do.

Do: Go Pink

Barbiecore is all about fully embracing the color pink, and the list of items you can wear is pretty much endless, ranging from matching sets and dresses to jumpsuits and power suits.

Don’t: Go All Pink

Pink is the staple of the barbiecore aesthetics, but it’s not the only color you should wear to embrace it. Feel free to experiment with other shades ranging from obvious choices such as whites, golds, and silvers to statement-making shades such as yellow and green.

Do: Platform Heels

When it comes to accessories, platform heels are a must, and you’ll never make a mistake if you decide to wear them with your outfit.

Don’t: Accessory Bonanza

When it comes to other accessories, you can wear anything from handbags to belts, but keep in mind it’s always a good idea to stick to no more than three or four pieces, especially if your outfit is already too flashy.

Do: Beauty Experiments

Blonde hair and pink makeup come in handy when it comes to the barbiecore aesthetic, but they’re not a must and you can experiment as much as you want to.
