Top 15 Hottest Fashion Trends To Dominate In 2024

Top 15 Hottest Fashion Trends To Dominate In 2024

Though the year 2024 hasn’t yet come, its main fashion trends (seen on the Spring/Summer 2024 runways in New York, Milan, Paris, and London) are already well begun. While Fashion Week usually has some seasonal dissonance due to the industry’s forward-thinking production cycles, we adore getting a glimpse into the sartorial future. Trend-spotters can get a head start on dressing for the future year’s most desirable fashions, including the dozen themes that will characterize 2024’s fashion focus.

Return to school in blazers and pleated skirts inspired by academics. “Try experimenting with plaid skirts and trousers that can easily be dressed down with a graphic tee while still maintaining a polished, preppy look,” Arroyo, a stylist at Stitch Fix, suggests. The trend also lends itself well to layering, making it ideal for the winter season. To feel like you’re on school, wear a sweater vest with an oversized blazer or a cable-knit sweater with a varsity jacket.

The revival of ’90s and early aughts fashions will continue until 2024, including low-rise jeans, maxi skirts, and cargo pants. If you like silver jewelry than gold, you’re in luck, since the 1990s color is making a comeback. While cargo pants may be a hit or miss for some, stylist Sockel thinks they’re simple to dress up or down. “Whether you’re after a more utilitarian, street-style approach or looking for an elevated cargo pant that can be dressed up, there’s a style to match everyone’s unique taste,” Emiko Strah, who is also a stylist, says.

We were relieved to see that designers such as Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Gucci, Mugler, and Tom Ford haven’t abandoned fringe for spring and summer—and the fringe forecast for 2024 calls for ultra-fine strands (the width of thread or floss rather than yarn) of micro-fringe accenting hemlines and drawing attention to key elements of outerwear, dresses, and separates.

Fringe in 2024 will undoubtedly be more sophisticated than past seasons, creating a fascinating dichotomy. This fringe is more modest due to its size. Nonetheless, its understated nature allows it to be used in larger volume into a broader range of pieces, such as the Giorgio Armani sleeveless collared shirt and Bottega Veneta midi skirt shown above. TL;DR: The micro-fringe of 2024 is more subversive than previous, thicker variants due to its scale and perfection.

‘Knickers on the red carpet’ became the unexpected fad of 2023 thanks to avant-garde fashion fans like The Crown actor Emma Corrin and YouTube star Emma Chamberlain.

“In 2024 this will go one step further as celebs and influencers will start experimenting with fetishwear and kink-inspired clothing,” according to Watkins.

“We’ve seen hints of this trend in the last month, such as Bebe Rexha’s BDSM-inspired leather dress with bum cut-outs and a tail.” Consider latex, leather, and vinyl ensembles with corset accents and exaggerated feminine silhouettes.”

Who wants a bodycon little dress when you have one that is completely bejeweled? That’s the dilemma posed by rhinestone and sequin-encrusted micro-minis, another significant 2024 fashion trend. This happy marriage of boxy mod silhouettes and shimmering finishes ranges from Carolina Hererra’s peachy nude and pearlescent paillettes and shift dress structures to Gucci’s relaxed-to-the-point-of-pinafore tangerine dream dress with a gothic checkerboard of rhinestones. Meanwhile, designers such as Christian Cowan, Michael Kors, and Versace infused ’70s style elements such as bell sleeves and abstract floral designs into their interpretations of this golden and groovy trend.

This soft, muted shade, reminiscent of the velvety surface of a peach, has a warm undertone. It is best suited to persons with warm skin undertones.

While a few designers (Miu Miu, Loewe) have been playing with the no-trousers look (aka, underwear as outerwear) in recent seasons — a trend that has subsequently been enthusiastically embraced by the Jenners/Biebers/Hadids of the fashion world — the SS24 presentations have made it official: The trend of taking off your pants is set to take off. It’s easier to list the designers who didn’t send their models down the catwalk with their legs completely exposed than it is to name those that did, which include Marni, Schiaparelli, Dries Van Noten, and LaQuan Smith. It appears that the coolest method to dress up your bottom half in 2024 will be to wear short shorts and exposed undergarments with sheer or colorful tights below.

It was just a matter of time before the pendulum swung in the opposite direction with the revival of logomania a few seasons ago.

“Popularised by social media and driven by a shift away from streetwear logo-centricity, this trend represents a movement towards wardrobe investment pieces,” according to McCormick Bacal.

“Not only have online searches for ‘quiet luxury’ and ‘old money style’ increased exponentially this year, but our data confirms that the trend is growing.”

She thinks that “elevated simplicity” will be the trend in 2024, which means “rich, luxurious fabrics like wool and cashmere envelope coats, blazers, and suiting that pair with logoless-yet-very-much-identifiable luxury accessories in staple neutral leather.”

Slingback heels, the likes of which haven’t been seen quite this sleekly secretarial or vampy since the ’90s, featured on the Saint Laurent, Phillip Lim, and Gucci runways in what could be the most recognizably throwback trend of 2024. Valentino took a more demure approach to more demure flats, with kitten heel variants also making waves.

While we applaud the revival of the iconic slingback pump silhouette, we were as captivated by designers who modified slingback features into new styles. Slingback ankle straps were seen on jewel-encrusted ballet flats at Chanel. Versace added clear blink-and-miss-it slingback accents to its lucite block heels, while Zimmermann blended mules, clogs, and slingbacks for a wonderfully informal take on the style.

We said, brrr, it’s cold in here, or it will be freezing in 2024 when frosty metallics replace traditional spring pastels. We don’t mind the soft color palettes that generally accompany the changing of seasons, but not everyone likes to dress in Easter or cupcake colors as the weather warms up. Enter the top color trend of 2024: a fresh color palette that combines the delicate and airy lightness of pastels with the sting of winter ice.

Glacial blue was the icy tone of choice for 2024, with variations sent down the runways at LaQuan Smith, Versace, Bottega Veneta, Wiederhoeft, and Tom Ford, but silvery green, liquid rose, and frosty lilac also made a presence, courtesy of Giambattista Valli, Christian Cowan, and Issey Miyake.

If you liked office-core apparel during fall, be ready for a spring-friendly version: the short suit. Blazers combined with matching fitted shorts from Chanel, Maison Margiela, Givenchy, Coperni, and Staud lend credibility to this professional(ish) look for 2024. The domineering yet lighthearted look of the short suit sets the tone for wearers who mean business without taking themselves too seriously. While we don’t recommend wearing the aforementioned trouserless trend to your next Monday morning meeting, we do believe shorts — albeit of the Bermuda kind — will be popular for office attire.

The next generation of 2023’s big maxi skirt trend has here, and while longer hems remain popular, we’re seeing a lot more volume in bottoms that go below the knee. Instead of slinky fits or Y2K-inspired denim materials, designers like Bottega Veneta and Staud predict that longer skirts and ball gown designs will be popular. Batsheva even accentuated the “cheerleader full-circle skirt” look with an old-school hoop method.

Redoubled loops and twisted, swooping spheres at Saint Laurent and Schiaparelli offered a more tangible shape to the enormous droplet earring motif that dominated 2023. This style was mismatched by Alexander McQueen and Coperni, who paired huge double-hoop cuffs with hanging statement earrings, another key jewelry moment for 2024.

14. Female rebelliousness

Following in the footsteps of Barbiecore, fashionistas are adopting a new type of ultra-feminine attire.

“This trend is all about letting the feminine side of you break free from its pink fluffy cage,” Megan Watkins, head stylist of online apparel retailer SilkFred, explains.

“Think oversized floral patterns, items made of organza or taffeta and novelty handbags in heart shapes – the cutesier, the better.”

This exaggerated approach, inspired by celebrity-favorite fashion designers such as Nensi Dojaka and Richard Quinn, is “feminine in an ironic but super fashion-forward way,” Watkins notes.

“You can experiment with this trend by purchasing some cute accessories, such as oversized hair bows or floral-inspired earrings.” This trend is primarily about establishing soft lines, so avoid rigid blazers and jewelry with hardware.”

Wardrobe essentials are the ideal non-trend trend. Stitch Fix stylists have noted an increase in requests for traditional garments such as button-downs and solid hues. “A tucked in button-down is a timeless look,” says stylist Jessica Sockel. Wear wide-leg denim and a tie-waist trench coat open to show off the rest of your ‘fit” for an office-ready look. She goes on to say that fundamentals can be dressed up or down: “Wear denim and your favorite sneakers during the day, then swap with heels when you’re ready for a night out.” The best part is that these products never go out of style, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to mix and match them.

All of these styles, from simple to complex, are expected to be popular fashion trends in 2024. Try any of these to make you stand out and stay current.
