Everyone and their mother seems to be excited for the upcoming film Barbie, starring Australian actress Margot Robbie as the titular character and directed by Greta Gerwig.

And as a part of that excitement, an incredible fashion trend has emerged: Barbiecore.

What is Barbiecore? Essentially, it’s an outfit that has an abundance of vibrant hot pink; also known as Barbie Pink.

But Margot has taken Barbiecore to new heights during her Barbie press tour and isn’t just rocking pink outfits. She’s instead been wearing ensembles that have been inspired by iconic Barbie doll outfits.

Case in point: while promoting her highly anticipated film in Sydney, Australia, Margot wore a strapless Hervé Léger dress that was modelled after the strapless black-and-white swimsuit worn by the first-ever Barbie in 1959; and she looked simply divine.

Clearly, Australian fashion brand Review has followed Margot’s lead as it’s released a stunning collection of dresses which have all been inspired by the golden years of Barbie.

Read on to see our favourites (AKA the Barbiecore outfits you need to add to your wardrobe as soon as possible).

The Number One Dress

This dress was also inspired by the first-ever Barbie doll but is much more modest than the one Margot recently wore. Complete with a square neckline, fitted bodice, adjustable & removable spaghetti straps, a full circular skirt (that sits just above the knee) and matching leather belt, the dress’ black and white zebra print also features a very subtle Barbie logo throughout.

Shop the Number One Dress at Myer for $299.95.

The Suburban Shopper Dress

Inspired by the 1959 Barbie outfit of the same name, this beautiful blue and white dress features a square neckline and sleeveless bodice, fitted waist with contrasting white grosgrain belt, and a full knee length skirt with box pleat and side seam pockets.

The Fashion Luncheon Dress and Jacket

The Fashion Luncheon dress is modelled after the 1966 ensemble of the same name and features a round neckline, sleeveless fitted bodice, mock front pockets with welts and button detail, and a knee length skirt with kick pleats. Pair yours with the matching Fashion Luncheon Jacket (which features a collared neckline, full length sleeve, cropped length and single button closure at the neckline) and you’ll look simply fantastic!

If you don’t want to just dip your toe into the Barbiecore trend, you can cannonball in with Review’s Barbie Dress. In a vibrant Barbie Pink, the dress is made from a gorgeously soft cotton sateen fabric and features a round neckline and sleeveless fitted bodice with princess seams to contour your figure, a fitted waist with matching patent leather belt, and a full circular skirt with side seam pockets.

Pair it with the Barbie Cardi in cooler months and you’ll look seriously stylish.

The Knitting Pretty Dress and Cardi

Made from a stretchy viscose and nylon blended knit fabric, and with variations in the pattern to create the illusion of a knit top and skirt, the Knitting Pretty Dress was inspired by the bubblegum pink version of Barbie’s Knitting Pretty set which was released in 1964. Complete the look with the Knitting Pretty Cardi.
