Summer 2024 fashion trends are taking over our feeds, offering fresh inspiration from the streets and summer runways. Many of these trends are nostalgic, like peep boho’s triumphant comeback and the return of the statement belt. However, preppy style and sneaker trends also have a sporty undercurrent.

Emilia Petrarca, who writes the fashion newsletter “Shop Rat,” believes that if luxury goods prices remain high, the ‘quiet luxury’ trend will stick around for a bit longer. People want timeless elegance or luxury, not just boring minimalism. Crisp white and butter yellow will trend for the months ahead, along with sequins and basics like denim pants and white T-shirts.

On the accessories front, raffia is bigger than ever, while polished kitten heels and Mary Jane flats are popping up. These are the summer 2024 fashion trends our style editors are most excited to wear.

Athletic prep

 

Summer 2024 fashion trends: athletic prep

Our favourite 2024 fashion trend is the resurgence of the preppy look. This one directly ties to Miu Miu’s series of wildly successful catwalk shows, which began a few years ago with that micro-mini pleated skirt and culminated in the Gossip Girl-inspired collection for spring. Our feeds are also flooded with modern takes on prep-school staples like button-down shirts, track jackets, and polo shirts. Meanwhile, Tennis Core is gaining popularity again thanks to Challengers and Zendaya’s athletic red carpet look. Dressing like a country club member has never been a better occasion.

Boho 3.0

Fringe, welcome back to the zeitgeist! Though the term “boho” may cause you to travel back to 2013 due to mental stress, fear not—the style has been updated for 2024 with fresh ideas on fringe, crochet, and flowy tops that look and feel better than ever. Springtime saw the adoption of the style by bohemian-inspired brands like Ralph Lauren, Ulla Johnson, and Chloé, and we believe its popularity will only increase as summer comes to a conclusion and fall approaches. Check out the editor-approved beach-boho selections from Free People. If you invest now, you’ll have money for the entire year.

Slim sneakers

 

Summer 2024 fashion trends: sneakers

For the second summer in a row, chunky sneakers are losing ground to their thinner, sportier cousins. These sneakers, which frequently come in striking hues like blue and yellow, go well with everything from carefree pants to summer gowns fit for the catwalk. This time of year, they add an extra layer of coolness to an otherwise carefree look. Choose between a classic brand like Puma or Adidas or try something different with a new brand like Alohas.

Little white dresses

Put the LBD away. This summer, brands like Tove, Prada, Tory Burch, and many more are taking a different approach and delivering gorgeous white dresses that make us swoon. These songs are as charming as they are seductive, and as summer heat builds, they will only become more appropriate for summertime events like garden parties and afternoon cocktails. We love how simple it is to style them: choose between summer sneakers, slingback heels, or walking shoes, and throw on some basic jewellery.

Raffia accessories

Although raffia is usually in demand at this time of year, the summer of 2024 will be particularly significant for the woven material. Shoes and raffia bags flooded the runways; now we want anything straw. These items will not only convey that you’re on vacation (mentally, at least), but they’ll also give all of your upcoming looks a much-needed dose of texture. As seen by Tod’s and Bottega Veneta, raffia looks fantastic paired with additional raffia, so don’t be afraid to layer it on.

Back to basics

Although it’s still running strong, stealth wealth will change slightly in the coming year. Simple (but glamorous) ensembles are trendy right now, with ’90s icons like Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy prominently featured on the mood board. “I think we are going to transition into a somewhat adjacent ’80s and ’90s look to quiet luxury,” says Jenny Walton, a writer for Jenny Sais Quoi, a weekly contributor to Vogue. “Restraint will grow increasingly appealing.” Get a head start on minimalism with workhorse staples like draped tank shirts, crisp jackets, high-waisted jeans, and thin loafers. Each piece has just enough flair to stand out without taking over.

Kitten heels

Many fashion houses, like Prada, Rachel Comey, and Valentino, showcased shallow heels for the summer, indicating that 2024 will be a walking-friendly year. Adopt the trend of comfy heels right away to keep up with fashion and take care of your feet. Who says that wearing fashion hurts?

Butter Yellow

The colour of the year is butter yellow, as we predicted back in February. Given that you can wear it with anything—black, white, navy, denim blue, pink—this surprise neutral is practically the ideal shade and should appeal to colour enthusiasts and those who like to dress in one colour. Choose a light yellow dress à la Tove, or experiment with the hues in separates like those from Armani and Loewe. And don’t fear; investing will only gain popularity as the second part of the year approaches.

Shimmer and shine

This season’s presentations focused heavily on all things sparkling, from Kate Spade’s sequined skirts to Ralph Lauren’s lamé gowns that evoked the spirit of Halston. Go for paillettes, rhinestones, and metallics to channel your inner Studio 54 groupie. Alternatively, steal the looks from Gucci and 16Arlington and wear your most striking items with tees, capri trousers, or basic denim.

Mary Jane flats

Ballet flats are still popular for the summer, but they’re changing, with Mary Janes being the most in style. The straps, which are equal parts stylish and sly, give additional support and display a little more of your individuality than plain pairs do. The silhouette is offered in the newest materials and hues of the season, including metallics, mesh, and red accents. Take them out when you need a little extra oomph for your ensemble.

Statement belts

We never imagined that we would say this, but bear with us: Statement belts are fashionable right now. Ferragamo and Tom Ford freed them from their nearly ten-year confinement in the fashion world this season, proving that a smart ensemble can reach astonishing heights when a statement item is added. The next time you’re dressing to impress, wear one with a wide-leg pair of jeans or a dress for a wedding.
