Ciara Nailed the Barbiecore Aesthetic in a Thigh-High Slit Skirt and Crop Top
Barbiecore is the fashion aesthetic du jour, and Ciara just showed off a practical way to tap into the trend. The singer took to Instagram to present a hot-pink look fans of the bright shade will immediately approve of. Embracing one of summer's biggest color trends (as prominently featured in Valentino's PP Pink fall 2022 collection), she wore a ribbed co-ord set consisting of a midi skirt with a thigh-high slit on the left and a matching cropped tank top. The two pieces combined offer a smart and practical dressing solution for a warm day. Ciara accessorized with layers of gold chain necklaces, a stack of matching bracelets on each arm, and a small selection of silver diamond rings.
Fresh off her arrival on the red carpet in a plunging black Sabina Bilenko Couture gown at the 2022 ESPYs and following the release of her costume-packed "JUMP" music video, Ciara continues to serve up style inspiration at every turn.
Here, Ciara follows in the footsteps of celebrities who have recently made memorable appearances in head-to-toe pink ensembles. These include Anne Hathaway's sequin Valentino look, Khloé Kardashian's 38th birthday latex minidress, Lizzo's Valentino skater minidress and opera gloves at her "Watch Out For the Big Grrrls" premiere, Hailey Bieber's Versace corset dress on Instagram, and Dua Lipa's Balenciaga catsuit during the "Future Nostalgia" tour. These stars are showcasing how to pull off the aesthetic that's poised to get you noticed anywhere you go.
