This summer, Barbie is the word on everybody’s lips because of the record-breaking blockbuster movie directed by Greta Gerwig that’s in theaters as I write this. While the movie is more geared towards adults who once played with Barbies than kids who still do, there’s no doubt that it has generated renewed interest in the iconic dolls — not that it ever wanted.

Over the years, Barbie has inhabited every impressive role you can think of, but one thing that never changes is her sense of style. Barbie has access to a vast range of glamorous, fun and funky outfits for her and her friends — including Ken. Kids love to play dress-up, and doing so with stylish dolls expands the imaginative possibilities to infinity, which explains Barbie’s staying power over more than 60 years.

This list is chock-a-block with outfit sets that help Barbie become anything you want her to be. Whether strutting the streets of Tokyo, hanging out at the beach or walking the red carpet, she always looks fresh and fabulous.

1. For Younger Kids: My First Barbie Tutu Leotard with Ballet and Dance Accessories

My First Barbie dolls are larger, 13.5-inch dolls that are easy for little hands to hold and play with. They’re aimed at preschoolers, so all the clothes feature simple closures, and there are no tiny pieces that can become choking hazards. At the same time, as they play and put on and take off clothes, they’ll be building dexterity.

9. Barbie Roller Skating Set

This set is for Barbie’s little sister Chelsea and it contains six items, including a pair of roller skates, a rainbow skirt, a cute top, a helmet with kitten ears, heart-shaped sunglasses and a juice box.

Frequently Asked Questions About Barbie Doll Clothes

🙋Do all Barbie clothes fit all Barbies?

Back in the day, all Barbies were the same size, so no matter what clothes you got her, they were guaranteed to fit. However, Barbie has had a major revamp in recent years, with dolls of different sizes being released that reflect a more diverse range of body types. Now there’s curvy Barbie, tall Barbie and petite Barbie in addition to the classic slim Barbie and with different body types comes the need for different clothing. 

As such, not all Barbie clothes fit all Barbies. However, many Barbie clothes are more versatile and can fit different-sized Barbies. Whatever size Barbies you have, we recommend reading the product description and some customer reviews to ensure the clothes you buy will fit your dolls.

🙋 What did the first Barbie wear?

Today, having different clothes to style Barbie in is a big part of the doll’s appeal, but the very first Barbie wore just one thing – a stylish black-and-white zebra-striped swimsuit. She had a signature ponytail with ruffled bangs and was available as either a blonde or brunette. This original Barbie was created by American businesswomen Ruth Handler and launched by Mattel in 1959. 

In truth, Barbie was all about clothes from the beginning, as she was advertised as a “Teen-age Fashion Model.” Soon, a wealth of clothes were made available to add to your Barbie’s wardrobe and over the years, both Barbie and her fashion sense continued to evolve.

🙋 Are Barbie dolls good for kids?

Barbie is a massive cultural phenomenon, and as such, this isn’t a simple question to answer. Barbie has had her fair share of negative press over the years, mostly revolving around the idea that she projects harmful body image expectations on girls. And although a much more diverse range of Barbies is available, Barbie still skews very slim.

On the other hand, it is undeniable that playing with Barbie dolls has many benefits for children as well. Imaginative play with dolls helps kids develop empathy and other important social skills. And although Barbie may portray an idealized standard of beauty, she’s also ambitious – all the different careers that Barbie has tackled encourages girls to aim high. 

So… What Barbie Doll Clothes Should You Get?

Whether you’re buying a beach outfit for Barbie, a beautiful gown for Barbie, a big closet for Barbie, or trying not to forget about Ken, there’s something here for everyone. It’s all about giving kids a wide assortment of cool clothes for whatever stories and adventures they want to create with their dolls. 

But why should it just be the dolls that get to dress up in beautiful clothes? If you’re buying for a real-life princess, why not also give her an outfit to make her feel like one, like the Ecparty Princess Costumes Dress, which is as glam as anything you’d find in Barbie’s walk-in wardrobe.

Of course, there’s more to Barbie than just clothes, so for some more gift inspiration, have a look at our gift guide for Barbie fans to help her make popcorn and give the dog a bath…
