The New Spring – Top 2024 Spring Trends 

 

Are we still wearing florals for spring? According to @databutmakeitfashion on Instagram, sentiment towards floral prints are down 15% from February to March. While the data is still new, it makes us wonder which fashion staples are changing before our eyes. We scoured trend authorities like Vogue, Tagwalk, Google Trends, and more to compile a list of 12 trends defining spring 2024.

  1. Casual elegance. Whether you call it quiet luxury or casual elegance, staple pieces like trench coats, t-shirts, button down shirts, and cardigans are getting a luxe reinvention.
  2. 90s minimalism and 90s grunge. Think baguette bags, blazers, slip dresses, capri pants, and straight leg jeans.
  3. Preppy. Polos, rugby stripes, boat shoes, oxfords, and nautical looks are trending this spring.
  4. White dresses. Fashion trend compiler Tagwalk found that white dresses are up 29% on their site.
  5. Light Blue. We cound sky blue is trending in both clothing and in eyeshadow. 
  6. Pastels. Specifically, butter yellow and lilac are trending in 2024.
  7. Sheer and Mesh. We found that transparent skirts and mesh flats are a top categories of the sheer trend.
  8. Micro shorts and minis. Often paired with outerwear for balance, shorts are reaching micro proportions.
  9. Flats. Footwear is getting grounded–ballet flats, sneakers, and oxfords are all top trending shoes.
  10. Romantic. The popularity of draping, rose appliques, and sheer fabrics hint toward romance.
  11. Ladylike. A grown up version of the coquette trend, ladylike dressing often includes matching skirt sets, peplums, cardigans, full skirts, and Chanel-style jackets.
  12. Western. Calling cowboy Carter: fringe, western belts, boots, and cowboy hats are at peak popularity.
