Hola fashionistas! The season is changing and with it come fashionable responsibilities. Even though we still have a few days or weeks until summer, it’s never too late to start refreshing your wardrobe with the latest trends. I, for one, love the rainy and cold seasons because I don’t have to carry a hand fan with me everywhere. However, as the temperature rises, we have to get prepared for whatever comes with it. So, join me as we discuss the top 10 summer 2024 fashion trends must-haves.

Seasonal Trends

Spring was all about embracing nature’s wild forms and being in tune with it. Whenever I watch Korean movies made in spring, I usually look forward to their styles and they never disappoint. However, the season is changing and even nature knows it. As the days grow longer, the temperature rises and the heat crashes, leaving us with loose and lightweight layering to ensure we aren’t consumed by summer’s wild form.

For example, one thing I dislike about summer is that my sweat glands have a mind of their own. LOL. It’s really annoying because I wanna wear fancy, layered-up outfits. But I can’t (phew). So we just have to go with the flow and hope that this time around we’re well prepared for summer’s wiles.

10 Summer 2024 Fashion Trends Must-Haves

This season brings bright colors, fun patterns, and new styles that will stand out. From runway looks to street fashion, here are the must-haves to keep you looking stylish all summer.

1. Bright Colors and Neon Hues

Summer 2024 fashion trends are all about bright and bold colors. Picture electric blues, fiery reds, and sunshine yellows. Neon shades are back, adding excitement to your wardrobe. Whether it’s a bright neon dress or a standout accessory, these colors will help you make a striking impression.

I was never one to wear bright, bold colors but I should probably step out of that zone. As the sun shines bright over summer, why not stand brighter with these trendy colors? Anyone who does it should please send a picture (pouts). The only thing I’m worried about about bright colors is that I live in Nigeria (lmao). Why? Well, because if you’re not a celebrity or influencer and you wear these colors, you can be sure to get all the attention. Both wanted and unwanted. So, if you’re a Nigerian, try to blend these colors with softer tones. And stay away from BLACK (lol).

2. Sheer fabrics and lightweight layers

Sheer fabrics are essential for summer, adding a light and elegant touch to any outfit. These sheer blouses and lightweight maxi dresses help you stay cool and stylish. You can layer sheer fabrics over solid pieces to make your outfit more interesting for both day and night.

I love reading books because then I have the chance to adore summer maxi dresses. Depending on the fabric, which should also be lightweight, they can be worn anywhere.

3. Artistic Prints and Patterns

This summer, let your wardrobe be a canvas with artistic prints and patterns. Bold florals, abstract designs, and tie-dye are all the rage. Mix and match different patterns for a vibrant, eclectic look or opt for a single statement piece to be the focal point of your outfit. The key is to have fun with your style and express your personality through these creative designs.

You guys know about Ankara print, right? Because I’ve got a whole closet full of it. lol. Lightweight Ankara prints are perfect for hot weather and guess what? You can be creative with how you style it. Summer 2024 fashion trends are all about being creative.

4. Utility Chic

Combining practicality with style, utility chic is a trend that’s both functional and fashionable. Think cargo pants, utility jackets, and jumpsuits with multiple pockets and zippers. This trend is perfect for those who love a minimalist yet edgy aesthetic. Pair utility pieces with more feminine items, like lace tops or silk scarves, to create a balanced look.

I just love a jumpsuit, especially in the summer. They are awesome. I know some of you may be thinking, “Why a jacket?” Well, just because it’s summer doesn’t stop the showers of rain. It’s like they have a mind of their own and so it’s always good to be prepared for anything.

5. Sustainable Fashion

Sustainability continues to be a major focus in the fashion world. This summer, look for pieces made from eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, bamboo, and recycled fabrics. Brands are also embracing ethical production practices, so supporting labels that prioritize sustainability can help make your wardrobe more environmentally conscious. Vintage and thrift shopping is also a great way to find unique, sustainable pieces.

You can read my previous blog to learn about the various vintage trends for this year so you don’t feel left out.

6. Statement Accessories

 Accessories can elevate any outfit, and this summer is all about making a statement. Oversized sunglasses, chunky jewelry, and wide-brimmed hats are key trends to watch. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold accessories like neon handbags or colorful scarves. These pieces can add a fun and unexpected twist to your summer look.

Even though I do not like oversized sunglasses because they make my head look small (lol), I’d still recommend them. Fashion is all about creativity and summer is one of those times to get creative. Where I work is very hot, even before summer came, because it’s a factory and honestly, I’m just happy I’ve got some of these trends in my closet already. So, you know that verse in the Frozen movie ‘The cold doesn’t bother me anyway’, yeah, the heat version is my story. lol.

Check out the kinds of accessories to pair with your summer outfit here. These summer 2024 fashion trends can be versatile when it comes to statement jewelry.

7. Modern Boho

Bohemian style gets a modern update this summer with sleek silhouettes and refined details. Flowy maxi dresses, fringe accents, and embroidered tops are essential for capturing that carefree, boho vibe. Incorporate earthy tones and natural fabrics to keep the look grounded and chic.

Talking about embroidered tops, crochet is also part of it. I love crochet styles, especially tops, because they are versatile.

8. Capri / Bermuda Shots

From knee-length suit shorts to baggy jorts, these are the perfect bottoms for a comfortable, head-turning summer fit. In Nigeria, we call these kinds of shorts three-quarters (lame if you ask me but meh). I am definitely stocking my wardrobe with these, especially suit shorts, because they’d be easy to style for work. For summer 2024 fashion trends, shorts are cool, edgy, and comfy. Everyone knows I prioritize comfort in fashion.

For example: Pair long suit shorts with a matching jacket or basic long-sleeve tee, or jorts with a crop top and kitten heels. In this way, we’re saying, ‘Let your legs breathe.’

9. Footwear Focus: Chunky Sandals and Strappy Heels

Summer 2024 fashion trends in footwear are both practical and stylish. Chunky sandals are a must-have for their comfort and retro appeal. Strappy heels, on the other hand, offer a sleek and sophisticated option for dressier occasions. Both styles can be paired with a variety of outfits, making them versatile additions to your summer shoe collection.

10. Off-shoulder styles

Off-shoulder includes both one shoulder off and both shoulders off. In this case, I’m trying to say, let your shoulders breathe. If you are like me, who doesn’t like spaghetti sleeves, then you can go ahead with off-shoulders. Their tops can be paired with any kind of trousers or even skirts (yep, tried and trusted). Or you can opt for gowns, which are my favorites.

In conclusion, all I’m saying is to be creative this summer. Bring out your fashionista side. Go out, chill at the beach, and go to the farm (lol). Just enjoy yourself this season but make sure you do it in style. With these 10 summer 2024 fashion trends, you can pick the ones you’re most comfortable with and move into the season with ease.
