Barbiecore Inspired – Pink For A Summer Garden Party

Barbiecore – A Pink Outfit For A Garden Party

I am absolutely loving this warm and sunny weather we have been having lately! Summer is almost upon us, officially hitting next month, and I cannot wait! With the spring summer 2023 season in full swing, I have collaborated with to bring you a wonderful pink inspired look for a summer garden party. I’m of course channeling Barbiecore right now, since that’s everywhere! But it does help that pink is one of my all time favourite colours, as it’s perfect with my skin tone!

For this pink garden party look, I am wearing a V by Very V-Neck Satin Pink Dress from their Summer Dresses collection, which I paired with these V by Very Pink Sandals and finished it off with this super cute Radley Life Is Rosy Leather Tote Bag and some dainty gold jewellery, as well as a glittery eyeshadow.

As I said above, Barbiecore is the trending theme of this season due to the movie coming out, but pink is one of the most popular colours for the summertime and I cannot ever get enough of it. As soon as I saw this pink dress, I was obsessed with the rich satin shade and how elegant it was. Plus, the affordability is incredible! Very have some amazing products at such affordable prices from their own line. As an example, the pink sandals are only Β£17.50 in the sale!

I took a size UK 10 in this dress as I wanted it to be floaty, and the 8 was just a bit too small, so do keep that in mind with the sizing. It’s super comfortable though and really flattering, not to mention versatile. If you wore a cropped sweater over this in the autumn, you’d have a pink satin skirt! So it’s not just seasonal! I’m 5ft 4 as my regular readers know, so the length is absolutely perfect if you’re around my height.

Garden Party Outfit Inspiration – Pink, Pink, Pink!

If you have a garden party to attend this year, or even if you’re a wedding guest, pink is a great option! Everybody loves pink! It’s the go to shade to look fun and lively, especially if you’re combining various shades of light and dark pink in one outfit, so that it doesn’t look monotone. However, if that sounds like too much pink for you in one look and Barbiecore isn’t your thing, pink accessories are the way to go!

A flattering and elegant dress, usually comprised of a wrap design or a v-neck, is perfect for garden party and wedding guest attire, so why not opt for one in a pretty neutral shade (stay away from white if it’s a wedding as you don’t want to upstage the bride) and then finish it off with a pretty pink bag and some shoes? There’s so much emphasis on pink shoes and pink bags at the moment! Pink accessories really brighten up a neutral outfit, you can’t go wrong! Even if you just choose subtle baby pinks, it’s perfect! You can go as bold or as muted as you want, just as long as there’s some pink in there for the SS23 season!

Aside from how gorgeous this pink satin dress is, one of the main stunners of this pink garden party outfit is the bag! This is my first time ever getting a bag from Radley, and their Life is Rosy tote really caught my eye. It’s a pale peachy pink, but the print on the front is so cute! The two little doggies and the garden scene with a peacock, fountain, and flowers is just adorable? I think this bag couldn’t be more perfect for a garden party since it features an elegant garden scene on the front!

Anyway, I would love for you to let me know what you all think of this pink outfit that I’m wearing in the comments below. Are you wearing pink this spring and summer season? It’s a must have if you want to keep up with the trends! If you want to go one extra, you can add in some green too as pink and green is one of the most popular combinations for SS23! But remember, even if you’re not a fan of pink clothing, go for some pink accessories and you wont regret it!
