Mermaidcore had a huge moment in 2023. Film releases such as The Little Mermaid and Barbie had a part to play here, helping mermaid-inspired styles become popular and trendy. And this obsession with mermaid-themed fashion doesn’t seem to be going anywhere in 2024. Here’s how to make this trend work.
Wear a Ruffled or Flared Skirt
The classic mermaid shape for skirts is a long skirt that is tight until about the knee and then flares out with either ruffles or a floaty hem. This style is not only super flattering but also gives off a sense of a mermaid tail in a subtle and trendy way.
Choose Shimmery Fabrics
Whether you go for a long skirt in a shimmery material or a pretty cami top with iridescent details, this kind of material gives a sense of being underwater. Going for blue and green tones will be very fitting with the mermaid look, but any color will still work for this trend.
Go for Some Sea-Themed Accessories
Shell jewelry has been in for some time now due to this ongoing trend of mermaidcore. Starfish accessories have also been popping up, and net bags are sea-themed and super trendy. Think of it as boho style from under the sea.
