Barbiecore: The best places to shop pink in the UAE

Best places to shop Barbiecore in UAE

Ahead of the widely anticipated movie’s release, here’s where you can get your outfit on point

From shop windows to movie premieres and Pinterest boards, if you’re seeing pink everywhere; you’re not alone.

The iconic Barbie has never been in demand more than she is now, and rightfully so. Barbiecore has taken over all, dominating everything from ramps to home decor and beyond.

While the Barbie movie release might be delayed in the UAE, it’s a good time to get out there and shop for that impeccable outfit you will wear to the movies. Naturally, we’ve rounded up some of the best spots in town to go get your retail therapy right.





The Gap x Barbie collection is unsurprisingly designed for the ultimate comfort. Primarily catering to kids, you’ll spot the cosiest sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops and shorts.

With both companies not shying away from branding their logos on every inch of the fabric (in signature GAP style!), these pieces are sure to stay at the top of your wardrobe long after the Barbiecore trend passes.

Known predominantly for their chic, no-fuss designs, it’s pleasantly surprising to walk into a ZARA store rife with pink. From pastel to eye-popping shades, they have all that it takes to walk out looking like the fiercest Barbie there is.

While the Barbie™ Mattel Draped Dress is definitely our top pick, you can’t go wrong with the classic pink plaid strapless dress either. Pick from their infinite accessories and you’re golden. Or pink.

There’s something for everyone here, from strappy heels in neon pink to comfortable pale pink sneakers, or even shoes embroidered with glittery Barbie stones for the ultimate mesh of both worlds. You just can’t go wrong.

While H&M may not be throwing an in-your-face Barbiecore party, they’ve definitely got some vibrant pink outfits you might want to take a look at.

Our immediate favourites are the hot pink corduroy trousers, making for a statement suit that this Barbie can do it all. For a softer look that departs from the sea of pink, you could also opt for their lavender bow-detail organza blouse. Either way, this store definitely has something for those looking to do things a little differently.






This one’s for the entire family. From the moms and dads to kids, the whole lot can fully embrace the trend of the year with gusto and how.

From sweatshirts and dresses to slip ons, water bottles, bags and beyond, every aspect of your look can literally scream Barbie in style. We’d definitely recommend spending a while going through their extensive collection, you’ll be leaving with a lot more pink than you ever imagined!
