5 Runway-Inspired Spring/Summer Fashion Trends

Stay ahead of the style curve with the latest fashion trends spotted on Spring 2024 runways.

With the depths of winter behind us, it’s time to breathe new life into our wardrobes as the spring season arrives in full bloom. And with a new season comes a new slew of 2024 Spring fashion trends to inspire our style. Fashion month has officially wrapped up, serving up a wonderfully diverse array of looks that cater to almost every aesthetic: minimalist, romantic, preppy, androgynous for the spring 2024 season.

With a background in fashion merchandising, I love peeping the latest runway shows in anticipation of upcoming trends. One thing I found evident across designer shows is that this season’s runways embraced fashion trends on opposite ends of the style spectrum, proving there’s truly something for everyone. In spring 2024, we’re witnessing a fascinating clash of eras and aesthetics: the understated elegance of quiet luxury and preppy attire jostles with the rebellious echoes of 90s and Y2K fashion, while the balance of feminine and masculine elements plays out in a kaleidoscope of bold hues and soft pastels. Extra points if you can style these trends together.

Without further ado, here are the 5 biggest trends from New York Fashion Week we think will be everywhere in the spring/summer 2024 season.

Spring 2024 Fashion Trends

Preppy & Polished

First came the academia trend and with Pinterest predicting the eclectic grandpa micro-trend for 2024, it only seems fitting that preppy style is back and better than ever.

Classic preppy staples were spotted on the spring 2024 runways of heavy hitters like Miu Miu, Carolina Herrera, and Chanel. Think boarding school faves, like polo shirts, pleated mini skirts, popped collars, varsity-style bomber jackets, and rugby stripes.

We’ll see a lot of looks in 2024 with a mini dress or polo shirt, grandpa cardigan, and loafers.

90s & Y2K Fashion

These two distinctive fashion eras have been trending for a while now, and show no signs of stopping in spring 2024. Pant and skirt rises have been creeping down, tight ribbed tops are everyone’s new favorite basic, and the midi hemline on dresses and skirts continues to reign supreme, as proven on the Gucci, Ferragamo, Stella McCartney, and Marni spring/summer 2024 runways. Leopard print will be all the rage this year and the indie sleaze micro-trend will continue to make a cameo well into 2024.

Low-rise denim and satin pants also made a statement on Spring 2024 runways. The perfect trend for hotter temperatures, late spring into next summer is prime time to experiment with low-rise denim and pants.

Quiet Luxury

While we think Quiet luxury is more of a style movement rather than a trend, its chokehold on the fashion world is as tight as ever in 2024. Lovers of high-quality materials, timeless styles, and fine tailoring are continuing to embrace this understated form of luxury and will be turning to key designers of the look, such as The Row, Khaite, and Victoria Beckham while minimalist clothing designers like By Malene Birger, Maria McManus, and St. Roche will continue to grow in popularity.

In addition to the “it” colors for spring and summer, quiet neutral monochromatic outfits and understated white dresses will be popular in the upcoming seasons.

Feminine vs Masculine

Designers were at the opposite spectrums of masculinity and femininity on the spring/summer 2024 runways. Certain designers, like Alexander McQueen, Simone Rocha, Sandy Liang, Michael Kors, and Christian Siriano, emphasized classically feminine details, such as bows, frills, floral prints, sheer fabrics, and full skirts.

On the other side were designers like Maison Margiela, Proenza Schouler, Dries Van Noten, and Saint Laurent showcasing key elements of men’s tailoring, like oversized suiting, wide-leg pants, and crisp button-down shirts.

I love a look that masters both, lingering at the crossroads of masculine and feminine. Think sharp tailoring with an oversized blazer paired with delicate details like a hair bow or sheer blouse.

Pastels, Bold Colors, & Metallics

2024 Fashion Color Trends

Every year has its defining colors. In 2024, we can expect a lot of standout shades, from soft pastels to vibrant colors and luxe metallics. Delicate pastels were spotted on prominent runways like Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, Vivienne Westwood, Phillip Lim, and Jil Sander. In addition to classics like powder blue, lilac, and butter yellow, it looks like millennial pink is making a comeback. 

While Barbie pink seems to have run its course, designers like Carolina Herrera and Simone Rocha were eager to bring its softer pink counterpart back into our wardrobes. These designers have breathed new life into this nostalgic hue with chic feminine touches and fabrics.

Those who prefer a bolder look can channel the vibrant shades of orange, red, blue, and yellow that were trending in the collections of Bottega Veneta, Helmut Lang, Rick Owens, Brandon Maxwell, Ulla Johnson, and JW Anderson. Particularly, red will continue to dominate as the “it” color well into 2024.

Finally, if making a statement is your 2024 resolution, rich metallics lit up the catwalks of Prada, Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, and Isabel Marant. In addition to classic golds and silvers, we witnessed metallic versions of red, purple, and blue.
