Biggest Fashion Trends 2024 According to Designers
If you’ve never been a fan of too much color and bold patterns, you will take much pleasure in shopping for this year’s top fashion trends. For spring/summer 2024, Vogue among other renowned sources, informed us that designers decided to play it safe with a muted color palette, with black and whites taking first place, as opposed to the brights and pastels that we are used to seeing in the windows for this particular season. Minimalist pieces and 90s-inspired retro-chic looks will be favored by those who adore the quiet luxury aesthetic. And even more. See for yourself.
The White Dress Trend 2024
According to fashion designers, in spring 2024 we are shifting from the classic pastels that are usually popular during this season to snow-white dresses in all forms, sizes, materials, and lengths. Whether you are a fan of a flirty mini dress, romantic fairy tale floor-lengths, or elegant fitted pieces, the white dress is for everyone to wear this spring! Cotton, silk, taffeta, chiffon, or a gauzy knit, be sure to have at least one of these choices by the start of spring if you want to be in style.
Metallics Will Still Be Raging
While metallics have come to be recognized as a staple in winter fashion, for spring 2024 we will experience them on a whole other level. Picture shimmering pieces of brocade, lamé, satin, sequins, jewels and leather that turn metallics into a perennial favorite. Liquid-gold dresses, two-piece sequins suits and sparkly tailored trousers have given you the chance to wear your reflective gear not only for the most special of occasions, but for casual outings as well.
Rise of Coquette Chic
If you are familiar with the viral TikTok-inspired coquette style aesthetic, this 2024 trend is nothing short of news for you. Yes, this year’s fashion trends seem to be very focused on cutesy bows, dreamy pinks and pale pastels, ribbons, tiny florals and ruffles. Hyperfeminine pieces will be a must for spring/summer as you can see many lacy, pink and rosette details on the cat walks. Every girly girl (me included) will be happy to wear her milkmaid tops and pencil skirts this spring.
Discreet 90s Chic Fashion
For those who prefer a clean-cut style, and have grown tired of the numerous comebacks of flashy signature Y2K trends, you will be pleased to hear that the fashion trends 2024 will be also focused on simplistic 90s chic pieces. Think camel pencil skirts, white shirts and gray tailored two-piece suits. Bold colors and oversized logos are leaving the scene, and making way for cool-heated and grown-up minimalism outfits. The perfect workwear style for the coming months.
Fashion Trends 2024: XL Bag
As a complete opposite to the sequins mini clutches and teeny tiny shoulder bags that we have worn during the past few years, thanks to, yes again, you guessed it, more Y2K trends, fashion designers have decided once again to shift to another extreme: Oversized handbags. In 2024, we are combining style with functionality. An oversized tote bag, mesh shopping bags, luxurious basket bags, even a clutch can be used to the fullest! So start doing your shoulder exercises, to be ready in time for spring/summer!
Ultra Short Shorts Trend
Girls, it’s once again time to show off your long and tanned legs! With trends paving way to shorter and shorter skirts, and underwear becoming outwear, it’s no surprise that in spring/summer 2024 we are going to be making a bold statement with our ultra short shorts. However, on the catwalks, we are not only seeing the usual summer crochet and linen pieces, but designers are providing us with more sophisticated, tailored designs this year. That might pave the way for this trend to become something more than a spring/summer fling and continue to live on in our capsule wardrobes as well.
Join the (Country) Club
Embracing the sporty-chic vibe, 2024 fashion trends will also include the resurgence of classic athletic stripes, as witnessed in designer collections inspired by rugby, cricket and other ball sports. The new trend involves brands moving away from streamlined stripes towards a more playful and colorful aesthetic. This vibrant shift provides a refreshing departure from the subdued palettes of the previous season. Notably, the lively stripes will effortlessly go with easy denim and basic tees. Be sure that these will transcend the runways in 2024.
Retro Sling Back Heels
What shoes are we going to be wearing in 2024? Once again, give a warm welcome to 90s slingback heels! While we might be hyped about the return of the classic slingback pump shoes, we are also intrigued by the altered versions that designers are offering us this year. Most notably, on the catwalks, we have seen Chanel adding slingback ankle straps on ballet flats with jewels. Zimmermann created a mix of clogs, mules and slingbacks for a simple and sweet take on this 2024 shoe trend. Versace added almost invisible to the eye slingback details to their lucite block heels. This retro trend is taking 2024 by force!
Almost See-through Skirts
Skirts are stealing the spotlight in 2024, with a notable trend being the nearly invisible, see-through style that is currently dominating the runways. The sheer skirt of spring/summer 2024 will evolve from the wafting gowns and lingerie-inspired details of the past seasons. This controversial trend can be worn whether in a midi, maxi, sheer or sequins skirt style. Designers suggest pairing sheer pencil skirts with soft crew-neck sweaters and top handle backs on cooler days, or a transparent skirt with a baby tee and ballet flats for a summer look.
Fringe Details for a Subtle Playful Look
Soon enough it will be time to leave your faux fur coats at the back of the closet, but we still need something to add a dash of playfulness to our monochrome and minimalism spring/ summer outfits, right? Designers in 2024 give you fringe details! The aim is to keep it fresh and stylish, as this trend can quickly become generic after wearing it a few times. But don’t worry, you will have plenty of options to choose from. Metallics yet again, bold colors, plastics and intriguing ropes, fringe will also be available in fine and refined details, giving them a chance to stay for more than a season or two.
