Spring/Summer 2024 Fashion Trends Forecast
Neeraj Singh, Fashion Expert and Head of Design, Fashinza shared with HT Lifestyle key trends that will set the fashion scene ablaze in Spring/Summer 2024.
1. Embracing Eco-Chic Revolution
As the fashion-inclined populace readily turns environment-conscious, they prefer to make purchases that support ethical practices and eco-friendly materials. Upcycled treasures, recycled fabrics and earth-conscious designs are continuing to prioritize sustainability over modernized choices. Considering this shift, marketplaces will be exhibiting opportunities for retailers to emphasise on clothing crafted from recycled or repurposed fabrics - cotton, hemp or linen.
2. Maximalist Minimalism
Over the years, Minimalism has taken a maximalist turn in 2024. Minimalistic fashion will revolve around neutral colours and simple silhouettes, introducing subtle variations with muted tones this SS’24. This year, consumers will boast a sophisticated and decent look with unexpected turns and twists of bold and vibrant accessories and exaggerated proportions.
3. Sheer Whites
Sheer whites have been in highlight for morning and evening wear in a row. With a light and airy feel, sheer white fabrics are perfect for warmer days. To give the angelic white an erotic twist, there is nothing more elegant or breathable than a white outfit, whether you’re heading to a dinner date, a Sunday brunch or a beach holiday. Additionally, to not lack the intricate details, sheer white adorned with embroidery, paired with shorts and denim can be playful this SS’24.
4. Athleisure evolution
Along with being environmentally conscious, the fashion-oriented populace is continuing to become health and fitness-conscious. The trend will include comfort, casual and sporty styles adorned by joggers, sneakers and sports-inspired accessories such as smartwatches. In SS’24, especially, the working millennials will embrace athleisure clothing even in their workplaces to embed their fitness and sports routine in their everyday work routine.
In the whirlwind of SS’24 trends, it is going to be a season of self-expression, individuality and breaking the norms to embrace trends that elevate the look. Undoubtedly, these sizzling styles will encourage a wardrobe that boasts a sense of responsibility with sophistication.
