Kids love to play dress-up and that’s what makes Barbie so popular with generations of kids. Barbie dolls have a huge range of glamorous, fun, and funky outfits for her and her friends – including Ken of course. Today Barbie’s clothes are also a tool for empowerment and a celebration of intelligence and strength as well as beauty.

With sets that help her to be an ultracool fashion designer or a gymnast and quirky, fun-themed outfits for farming, roller skating, or just cozying up at bedtime with a teddy bear, we’ve picked out 15 of the best around in 2021.

Barbie doesn’t accept fake fashion and neither should you, so we’ve eliminated all the fake online reviews before coming up with our recommendations, meaning that you can trust that these outfits will be as reliable as they will be fabulous.
