Come On Barbie, Let’s Go Party!


    Key Colors To Wear

    Barbie has an extensive wardrobe, but this trend is centered around the hot pink tones, so anything PINK is a sure way to go! Here are some color combinations you may want to try out as well:

    • Pink x Pink - Monochromatic!
    • Pink x White - Of course, it's difficult to have all pieces in pink, so you can substitute with white instead
    • Pink x Black - Lighter colors are preferable, but black is a great go-to and makes the outfit more chic
    • Accentuate With Green - This helps to neutralize the pink-dominated theme and add a pop of color!

    What Combinations Can You Choose?

    As long as you have pink in the outfit, the rest is pretty much a free-for-all! The combinations and layering are all up to you, so get creative—there are no strict rules as to what your outfit should look like. Aside from solid colors, you can also pick patterns such as hearts and checkers. Some styles you may consider are:

    • Crop Top + Jeans / Mini Skirt
    • Corset + Pleated Skirt
    • Layer with a button-down shirt, blazer, cardigan, or cropped puffer jacket (though the last option may be less practical for the summer heat)
    • Any pink dress!

    What Shoes Should You Wear?

    Pink shoes may not already be in your wardrobe—in that case, feel free to pair your outfit with whatever feels best! This trend is what you make of it, so unless you really want to, there is no pressure to buy things, especially if you will splurge on one-time wear.

    Shoes to wear really depends on what matches best with your outfit, think:

    • High heels - regular, platform, sandals
    • Boots - cowboy boots for the cowboy hat or knee-high for short skirts
    • Sneakers or Nike Air Forces - a great staple!

    What Accessories Should You Wear?

    Once you have the base outfit set, bring it to life with cute accessories! There are no limits when it comes to additions to your outfit, and you can choose to make your look casual or bold. Use any textures you want: metallic, sequins, feathers, and fuzz are all welcome!

    • Sunglasses - Heart-shaped or pink-rimmed
    • Hat - Pink cowboy hats, baseball caps, and bucket hats
    • Bags - Mini purses and handbags
    • Hair - clips, headbands, bandanas, or bows! You can also tie the banana loosely around your neck.
    • And of course, any earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that fit the vibe

    What Makeup Look Should You Go For?

    For younger teens especially, makeup is not a must because it all comes down to what you already have. With an outfit and accessories, you have already nailed the trend! But if you want another finishing touch, here are some ideas!

    • A monochromatic pink look - bright or baby pink blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick
    • To go all out, add pearls and glitter!
