Give Your Dorm Room a Barbiecore Makeover for Under $250
It’s Barbie’s world and we’re all living in it — and for some, I mean that literally. Barbie will officially come to life in Greta Gerwig’s live-action Barbie movie on July 21, but the film has already inspired an entire decor style. You’ve likely seen the trend all over social media, characterized by over-the-top styles, sparkly accessories, and pink (so much pink!), because the Barbiecore aesthetic has taken over the home decor space. Luckily, even though the movie is set to break box-office records, there’s no need to break the bank to get the Barbie look in your own home.
Barbiecore is one of the most dazzling, dopamine-inducing trends right now, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a roaring aesthetic of pink, glitz, and glam that represents the original 1959 classic and the many iterations that have come after. Even though it may seem like Barbiecore can only be one way, you can actually take the trend in a few different directions when it comes to your dorm room: You could design a super chic and bold room with bright patterns and hot pink decorations, or take a more muted approach with soft hues of blush and ballet slippers. If you want that specific brand of Barbie whimsy, you could incorporate sparkly elements and accessorize with florals. Or maybe you just combine all the aspects of Barbiecore for the ultimate Barbie World-inspired space.
If you’re ready to go all out for Barbie and Ken, here are the staple dorm decor pieces you’ll need to create your own Barbie dream dorm for under $250.
