Since 2024 is already well underway with Spring runways full of style, there are tons of trends that are starting to define what’s going on in the fashion scene.

Milan, London, Paris, and New York have already had their fashion week, and it’s easy to see what’s going on with the style for the early seasons of the year.

Check out the most popular trends that are defining fashion for 2024, including styles everyone will be coveting well into next year.

1. Pastoral Florals

Florals have always been such a classic choice for summer and spring, but there’s been an evolution of this pattern in 2024 into something a little more lush and pastoral. Instead of tropical flowers or bold colors, you’ll see dresses and shirts in women’s clothing outlets that look like oil paintings that have come to life.

With such an elevated take on florals, you’re getting intricately embroidered lace, layers of tulle, and a highlight of European flowers that makes you think of reclining in a giant field of blooming wildflowers.

In addition to the unique take on the floral pattern, you can also expect to see fuller skirts and more subtle colors that evoke the neutral hues of a relaxing landscape.

2. Personalized Style

Everyone loves a custom, one-of-a-kind piece, but not everyone can afford a made-to-order closet. To compensate for the lack of funding, many people are looking towards the more affordable version of custom clothing: monogrammed clothing.

Typically embroidered, monogramming is a great way to personalize any piece of clothing with a name, initials, and even phrases that mean something to you. Whether it’s song lyrics or a commemoration of an event, monogramming shirts, a purse, or even shoes is all the rage.

3. Loose & Flowy

Ever since 2020, loungewear has been reigning supreme over the fashion scene. But now, it’s transforming into a blend of leisure and professional wear that can work for more versatile occasions. Almost boho-like in its aesthetic, you can expect loose-flowing styles, like those from Umgee Clothing.

Other features of this loose clothing include subtle details, like delicate ruffles, neutral colors, including latte, slate, and linen, and textured fabrics that feature Jacquard. You can find pants, shirts, and skirts that all follow a shapeless, oversized silhouette to replace pencil skirts, bodycon dresses, and skinny jeans.

4. Fringe, Fringe, Fringe

While fringe has been around for a long, long time, in 2024, you can expect a new take on this popular detail. Instead of thicker, bolder strands you would find in the Wild West, designers are using ultra-fine strands reminiscent of the 1920s flapper girl.

The newly christened micro-fringe is going to be accenting hemlines and adding unique details to essential elements of nearly every type of clothing, including dresses, tops, bottoms, and outerwear. You may even see some fringe detailing on shoes and purses!

So, how else is fringe being used in new and exciting ways? This type of micro-fringe is a lot more subtle than previous styles, so it can be used in a broader range of designs where it may have been out of place before — especially contemporary formalwear.

5. Sultry Work Vibes

As workplaces become a little more casual, people are experimenting with how far they can push the line before workplace clothing becomes happy hour style. Some designers have taken note and included some sultry creations inspired by workwear for 2024 runways. The combination of sheer fabrics, gauzy designs, and ethereal hemlines has overtaken the business casual wardrobe of years past.

You can expect to see button-down shirts that show a little more of what’s going on underneath, as well as conservative hemlines that drape with a bit more architectural flair for a vibe that’s more artsy than professional. Other standout elements of these work/play pieces include deeper necklines, pale blues, and fitted silhouettes.

6. Mod Micro Dresses

Are you tired of wearing restricting bodycon dresses? Well, here’s some good news! Bodycon is out, and Mod mini dresses are in! Instead of baring every curve in a tight dress, you can expect to see babydoll and boxy silhouettes that are just barely down to there.

But that’s not enough for modern designers because they aren’t letting the cut do all the talking. Some of the most exciting pieces are fully bejeweled, rhinestoned, and sequin-encrusted.

You can also expect some unique color options, with peach, pearl, and nude taking center stage — instead of the bolder gemstones you might have seen in dresses from past years.
