It's no secret that mermaids are having a moment right now. From Disney's live-action movie The Little Mermaid starring Halle Bailey to red carpet looks featuring shimmery fabrics and shell accessories, the mythical creatures are being evoked everywhere this summer. Naturally, the Internet has dubbed this mesmerizing aesthetic "mermaidcore." (It's like Barbiecore but less pink and more aquamarine.)

So what does the trend entail, you ask? Think ocean-blue and iridescent hues, pearls aplenty, woven accents à la fishnets, organic textures, brass baubles, and — of course — seashells in every shape and style. Needless to say, the aesthetic translates beautifully to home decor. (Mermaids love collecting cool trinkets for their grottos, after all.) Ready to dive in? Here are 48 fresh mermaidcore finds that will help you channel your inner Ariel this summer.
