2024 Fashion Trends: Ultimate Guide To This Year’s Must-Have Styles

The dawn of every new year brings it with new fashion trends. While some of it may be completely new, very often, it is a take from yesteryears with a little twist here and there and some innovation. The year 2024 has brought with it new fashion trends, which are both easygoing and sassy. Here are some styles that are ruling 2024.

  • The athletic prep

Want to look effortlessly stylish? Girl, you need chic preppy athleisures in your wardrobe right now. This trend started taking over the market with with Miu Miu’s popular runways and its Gossip Girl–esque collection. Think track jackets, button-down shirts, tailored blazers paired with track pants, polo shirts with sleek joggers, and tennis skirts styled with varsity jackets. Pair it up with super cute baseball caps and sporty sneakers.

  • Boho 3.0

The 2024 fashion is all about Boho but a little updated than 2023. We have seen our mothers in Bohemian aesthetics back in 2010-2013. Now, it’s time to play with their old dresses and accessorise them with cute crochet earrings and you will have the classic Bohemian aesthetics to wear this year –  flowing maxi dresses with minimal embroidery, layered jewellery made from upcycled materials, and artisanal prints. If it’s Boho, it has to be colourful. Add pinks, blues and all the colours you won’t wear usually to create the perfect Boho.

  • Creativity with basics

You must have seen college girls wearing reverse jeans or upside-down jeans. Jeans and tops are lazy girl-friendly but how about using a little curiosity and wearing them in a way that is different than how one would usually do it?  Well, 2024 has seen a lot of creativity to make the staples look different. The reverse jeans were inspired by the famous Netflix series Stranger Things. While millennials would cringe seeing someone wearing a pair of jeans upside down, it’s a thing for GenZ. CIE Denim is a New York-based brand which sells classic jeans in reverse and the cost is no joke.

  • Little white dresses

The little black dress is now old. It’s 2024 and white is the ultimate colour for date-appropriate short dresses. It makes you look fresh, cute and interested. Labels like Tory Burch, Prada, and Tove have stopped making black short dresses. You can find white chic A-lines, flirty minis, elegant maxis and structured sheaths. Try experimenting with lace, embroidery, and minimalist cuts to make the classic white dress a little extra. Let’s appreciate how easy they are to style; throw on simple jewellery and take your pick from ballet flats, walking sandals, slingback heels and summer sneakers.

  • The long-slited floral summer dress

They say florals make you look old but designers say the opposite. Florals are timeless and easy to style. Feeling lazy? Don’t have enough time? Don’t have enough accessories? Put on a pretty long-slited floral dress and style it with anything you have. There you go! Perfect for a cute date brunch or a girl dinner. Lightweight fabrics like chiffon, silk, and cotton are often the best fabric choice for these kinds of dresses while the slit provides a modern twist on a classic silhouette.

  • The classic sheer play

See-through clothing is the new fashion thing in 2024. Labels like  Dior, Chanel, Hermès, and Prada are now bringing sheer clothing into mainstream fashion. Sheers might be a little difficult to style and quite uncomfortable sometimes but they give the IT girl energy every time they are styled properly. The key is to balance transparency with tasteful layering, creating an ensemble that is subtly seductive and undeniably chic.

  • Statement pieces with basics

Bored of wearing the same jeans and top every day but are too broke to buy new clothes? Invest in some funky earrings, belts, necklaces, hats and dramatic blazers or trench coats.  After about a decade in fashion jail, hot statement belts were rescued this season by everyone from Ferragamo to Tom Ford, proving that a fine look can become exceptional with the simple addition of an eye-catching accessory.

  • The cowboy boots

Sleek sneakers are kinda old now and we are back in the boots era again. Classic cowboy boots made their comeback in 2023 but 2024 made it a major fashion trend. These boots are no longer confined to ranches and rodeos; they’re being paired with everything from dresses and skirts to tailored pants and shorts. High knee boots would look best when paired with micro skirts. This again holds the power to uplift a basic boring outfit and make it look chic.

  • The minimalistic colour-coded

2024 is not all about extra. The clean girl aesthetic still exists. This fashion trend is all about clean lines, simple silhouettes, and a cohesive colour palette. While there are no funky items included, colours are taken care of. A mismatched pair of colours can ruin a nicely designed item. Stick to neutrals or trusted colour combinations like pink and white.

  • All time favourite crochet tops

One of the best 2024 fashion trends is crochet. From intricate lace-like patterns to bold, chunky knits, crochet tops come in a variety of styles and colours. They can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up with skirts and trousers. Crochet tops are best when multicoloured. Experiment with rare colours and style them with anything you like.

  • Bows for the win

Bows are making a big statement in 2024 and are all over Instagram this year, on everything from blouses and dresses to shoes and accessories. Oversized bows on the shoulders, delicate bow details at the waist, and bow-adorned accessories like handbags and hair clips and ribbons are all in vogue. The key is to balance the sweetness of the bows with modern silhouettes and styling. If there is one bow statement in your outfit, don’t overdo it or else you will end up looking tacky. Instead, keep the entire outfit soft-core and classy.

  • Skorts

Skort isn’t a new thing but they have made a comeback in 2024. They are basically just a pair of shorts with a layer of material over the top to make them look like a skirt. They’re normally always available in sports stores for tennis and golf, etc. However, the more tailored, dressier versions come in and out of fashion. They’re super practical and leg-lengthening and you can visit the windiest cities in the world, skorts will still keep your modesty intact. You can pair them up with cute dressy blouses to look dressed up or just pair it up with a basic tank top.

  • The boss lady

The boss lady trend in 2024 is all about confidence, featuring sharp tailoring, strong silhouettes, and bold colours. Think power suits with a modern twist, structured blazers, and high-waisted trousers. The office outfits are all over the internet. Experiment with colours but keep it classy at the same time. The era of naked dressing appears to be over. In its place are clothes that, as Peter Do wrote in the notes for his sophomore Helmut Lang show, don’t only “protect us” but “project us.”
