How to Dress for the ‘Barbie’ Premiere Like an Adult

How to Dress for the ‘Barbie’ Premiere Like an Adult

It’s Barbie’s world, and we’re just living (and shopping) in it.

Barbie-mania has fully taken over ahead of the Greta Gerwig–helmed, Margot Robbie–starring film’s official release—so much so, moviegoers are carefully planning what to wear when they head to theaters this Friday. While we can’t divulge everything that happens in the highly anticipated movie, we can say that Barbie will certainly strike a chord with adult women—even more so than with young girls. Further, the film serves as a moment to be carefree at the theater and with our personal style. Embrace pink! Wear feathers! Bring out the ultrafeminine accessories! If there’s ever been a time to simply have fun at the movies again—beyond simply wearing a screen-printed Team Edward or Team Jacob tee—this is it.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite products that embrace the multifaceted layers of Barbie style while also allowing you to, well, look like an adult. Featuring pieces from Christopher John Rogers, Loewe, Mara Hoffman, Gucci and more, this list includes a Barbie moment for everyone that will last beyond the premiere.

Square Saint Laurent sunglasses deliver the perfect finishing pop of pink.
