Barbiecore: Holiday Like A Barbie Girl In These Hot Pink Hotels

Come on Barbie, let's go party

Barbiecore: it’s everywhere right now – and, to be honest, we’re not complaining.

If you’re hesitant to channel Barbie into your clothes or even your interiors, why not venture to a hotel where the work has been done for you? According to Hotels.com, searches for pink hotels have increased 190 per cent in the wake of this zeitgeisty trend. These hot pink hotels channel Barbiecore to the max.
