Fashion Forward - Anticipated Trends for 2024 According to Style Experts

As we bid farewell to the fashion hits of 2023, dominated by Barbiecore, quiet luxury, and Noughties style, the style forecast for 2024 is eagerly awaited. Here's a glimpse into the emerging trends predicted by fashion experts:

  1. Unisex Elegance: The era of gender labels is fading as unisex styles take center stage. "Boyfriend" jeans and oversized suits are not just for women anymore, with a 46% growth in the global unisex category predicted to continue into 2024. Androgynous designs on luxury runways showcase a shift towards non-gendered fashion, while unisex accessories, including handbags, witness a 69% increase in transaction volume.
  2. Footie Fashion: The fusion of retro terrace culture and football footwear is set to continue in 2024. Sneakers influenced by football fan culture, such as Adidas Gazelles and Sambas, experienced significant popularity in 2023. Collaborations like Nike's with Martine Rose and Adidas with Grace Wales Bonner promise to blend football nostalgia with contemporary fashion, making football boot style a high-fashion trend.
  3. Rebellious Femininity: Move over Barbiecore; a new wave of ultra-feminine fashion is taking charge. Characterized by oversized floral patterns, organza or taffeta fabrics, and novelty heart-shaped handbags, this trend encourages breaking free from conventional norms. Inspired by designers like Nensi Dojaka and Richard Quinn, this exaggerated aesthetic is feminine in a fashion-forward and ironic way, inviting experimentation with cute accessories like oversized hair bows and floral-inspired earrings.
  4. Logoless Luxury: As a counter-movement to logomania, 2024 heralds a return to understated elegance. Social media and a shift away from logo-centric streetwear drive the trend towards "quiet luxury" and "old money style." Elevated simplicity becomes the focus, with rich, luxurious fabrics like wool and cashmere featured in coats, blazers, and suiting, complemented by logoless yet identifiable luxury accessories in staple neutral leather.
  5. Peach Power: Pantone's Color of the Year for 2024, Peach Fuzz, takes center stage. This soft, warm hue, reminiscent of a peach's velvety surface, is perfect for lightweight dresses, casual tops, knitwear, and chic accessories, particularly suited for individuals with warm undertones in their skin.
  6. Kinkcore: Breaking boundaries, fashion enthusiasts like Emma Corrin and Emma Chamberlain set the stage for kinkcore in 2023. This trend is expected to evolve in 2024, with celebrities and influencers embracing fetishwear and kink-inspired clothing. Expect to see daring outfits in latex, leather, and vinyl with corset details and exaggerated feminine silhouettes, pushing the boundaries of avant-garde fashion.
