Balletcore and Bridalcore Are Trending This Fall, Here’s How You Can Combine the Two to Stay on Top

Supermodels, singers and fashion icons alike are all hopping on one style or the other.

This fall is seemingly the season of pastels and flowy dresses. With the success of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Margot Robbie’s showstopping press tour looks, in addition to Taylor Swift’s viral “The Eras Tour” outfits, 2023 has reached peak femininity in the fashion department.


TikTok influencer Greta Louise got married in Portugal and documented her entire wedding planning process and the milestone day. The Bachelor alumna Hannah Godwin did the same—and we’re still thinking about all of her stunning wedding week bridal looks in France.

Additionally, Kelsey Merritt, Gigi Hadid and other supermodels are constantly making the case that wearing white after Labor Day is a necessity.


Out are the days of skin-tight bodycon dresses and in are flattering, A-line silhouettes, ballet flats and dainty bow accessories. Hailey Bieber is leaning in to her former ballerina days and sporting the sweet, no-fuss shoe, and the TikTok fashion community can’t stop coming up with new ways to incorporate hair bows into everyday style.

Barbiecore fuchsia has taken a step back while more muted, soft pink shades have come out to play.
