Zappos Mermaidcore Tout

Real Simple / Daisy Rodriguez

Mermaidcore is the latest fashion trend that’s perfect for summer—you can pretend you’re relaxing by the water, even if you’re just hanging out in your backyard. If you’re ready to add some of the whimsical style to your wardrobe, Zappos has you covered. The site just launched a secret storefront filled with items that will help you out. To find the products, just type in “mermaidcore”—or “thingamabobs,” “whozits,” “whatzits,” or "gadgets and gizmos” (yes, really!).

Zappos curated a collection of mermaid- and ocean-inspired clothing and accessories, from pearl accents to iridescent colors to blue and purple hues. Plus, you’ll find brands like Kate Spade, Vans, Ugg, Toms, Roxy, and more. Shop some of our favorites below, starting at $45.
