The whole world is coming down with Barbie fever ahead of the release of the hotly-anticipated movie this weekend. With that in mind, here are some gorgeous pink fashion pieces, inspired by the icon herself
This frilly, floaty skirt from the Trend Room in Pamela Scott are the things Barbie dreams are made of! Live out all your princess fantasies with this maxi that will look equally fabulous with sequins as it does with a simple strappy top as styled above.
The voluminous sleeves, the tasteful V-neck, the multi-coloured pink and white print – there is so much to love about this top from Lily & Rose. Not least the incredible sale price! It’s one size that will fit sizes 8-12 so it will depend on whether you want a more fitted or oversized look.
The Irish summer means that, regardless of the forecast, a coat is always a good idea to protect from a sudden shower or drop in temperature. We love this light belted number from Carraig Donn in delicate pink that will work wonderfully as a cover up at any special occasion as well.
Fun and flirty, this short pink tropical-print dress from iClothing truly embodies the essence of Barbie. With a feminine frill hem and waist tie to define the silhouette, you can wear this stunning floral dress with heels for an occasion look.
We are in love with this midaxi dress from Irish label, Edit Row. The dress is designed for an oversized fit, resulting in maximum comfort and style all in one. Also available in hot pink if you want to go full Barbie.
Tap into your 90s nostalgia with these incredible wedge sandals from ALDO. The candyfloss pink shade fully embrace the “Barbiecore” trend while also giving a nod to Baby Spice – an iconic pop culture fusion if ever there was one.
Add a bit of edge to your pink ensemble with this fabulous crystal barrel bag from Arnotts. The black and silver detailing on the strap give it a more grown-up, glamorous vibe – ideal for pairing with a black leather jacket.
For sporty Barbie types out there, this pink gilet from Helen Steele’s range at Dunnes Stores is a dream. Brilliant for layering over active wear on changeable weather days, it adds warmth without adding weight. It also has an adjustable hood – winning.
We adore this chic pink houndstooth blazer with gold buttons from Ivory Lane boutique in Galway and Limerick. Perfect for dressing up a casual outfit of jeans and a white tee, it’s also ideal for wearing as a suit jacket over any shade of pink.
If wearing pink isn’t your thing but you still want to embrace the trend, the g Hotel in Galway has a “fantastic” Barbie-themed afternoon tea on offer from 21 – 30 July, every day between 12-4pm. Advance booking is necessary and you can choose from purchasing the afternoon tea on its own for €35 per person or getting it with a screening of the film included for €42 per person.
