CAN WOMEN OVER 50 WEAR BARBIECORE

4 total views

You might be scratching your head wondering what Barbiecore is, and it is very simple. Barbiecore is the latest trend that is hitting the streets, social media, and even the runways. Barbiecore is basically all things Barbie; yes, I’m talking about the Mattel doll we all played with when we were young.

What is Barbiecore?

If you’re a fan of Barbie, then you know that she’s often dressed in pink clothing. In fact, it’s become her signature look. And, if you want to be in on the latest trend, you need to dress like Barbie and consider wearing pink clothing. Come On, Barbie, let’s go party! Lol! However, this doesn’t mean that you have to dress in head-to-toe pink, although I’ve seen celebrities doing that. Instead, we can get in on the trend by incorporating pink into our wardrobe, and I’m here to help.

Why Wear Pink?

There are a few reasons why wearing pink clothing is a good idea. First of all, pink is a bright and cheerful color. It’s perfect for showing off your personality and making you stand out from the crowd. Plus, pink is a feminine color, and thankfully for me, it looks great on Blondes.

Pink is a gorgeous color, and it goes well on virtually any skin tone. However, you should know that not all shades of pink will look good on you. If you have a deeper skin tone, then you should avoid light pinks. Instead, you should go with a dark shade of pink. I’ve also read that if you have a fair skin tone, then you should avoid darker pinks. Instead, you should stick with light shades of pink. I tend to wear both colors because pink makes me happy, so you decide which color you like the best on you.

Is Wearing Pink a Fad?

Pink is a timeless color that will never go out of style. It’s perfect for a special occasion or for everyday wear. Pink is the perfect way to add a little glamor to your wardrobe and express your unique sense of style. No matter what kind of outfit you wear, pink will always look great. Pink is one of the most popular colors around. It’s versatile and will look great on anyone.

Black and pink are two stunning colors that look fantastic together. The key to making this color combination work is to make sure that you are matching your shades properly. For example, you can wear a black blouse with a black skirt or pants. Then, you can wear a bright pink shirt or a bright pink sweater on top. This will give you a striking contrast and make your outfit look fabulous.

Incorporating Pink In My Life

There are a lot of ways to wear pink clothing, and I’m going to show you a few photos of how I wore pink in June.

Lips

First, let’s start with the makeup. Did you know that today is ALL ABOUT MAKEUP DAY? First, you need to choose a shade of pink that goes well with your skin tone. As I mentioned earlier, the rule of thumb is if you have a darker skin tone, then choose a darker shade of pink. If you have a lighter skin tone, then choose a lighter shade of pink. Once again, I throw that out the window, and I wear what I like. Here are some examples of lipsticks that I wear, and they range from pale pink to vibrant pink.



Nails

Other than your lips, you could choose to wear pink on your nails. Most of us have worn pink on our nails at one time or the other. However, the bright and vivid pink shades might give you pause. I love wearing bright pink in the summer, but only when my nails are long. If my nails are short like they are now, then I will choose light pink, so they don’t draw as much attention.


Accessories

Another way to incorporate pink into your life is through accessories.  A pink belt will add a touch of glamour to your outfit, and a pair of pink earrings can complement your outfit nicely and add a nice touch of sparkle to your ensemble. This is a time when you can go BIG and BOLD and have fun with shapes and sizes.
