Mermaidcore: Make Waves With This 2021 Fashion Trend

Mermaidcore is a relatively new trend creeping up on the horizon in spring 2021. Now you may be thinking, haven’t we seen this before? Not quite. Mermaidcore is not the holographic mermaid-inspired color palette of 2018 with bright pinks, purples, and greens. According to a study by Lyst Insights, searches are trending for the terms “starfish”, “mermaid”, and “seashell.” Coral and shell-themed jewelry has seen an uptick in sales as well.

So, what does this mean for fashion? Expect to see more jewelry and apparel with an under the sea motif for spring and summer 2021. Some think it’s cool, others may call it kitsch, but we can sum it up in one word: fun.

From shell dresses to ocean-themed nails, splash into summer with these mermaidcore themed items that are amazing, for-shore.
