With Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid dropping in May, fashion has entered full mermaid mode 🧜‍♀️ Mermaidcore has amassed *huge* searches on the clock app and it's spread to ASOS HQ too. Think metallics, sea tones, shells... anything that would look just as good under the sea as it does on dry land. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that this trend fully plays into our fascination with the early 00s (Aquamarine was rrly THAT girl). Let's dive in 🫧
