White emerged as the colour du jour, with designers showcasing an array of pretty white dresses. Sheer to intricately embroidered, these dresses are a celeb favourite. Kendall Jenner was seen flaunting a gorgeous mid-length white dress, and the internet couldn't keep calm. Brands such as Tove, The Row, and Ferragamo have reimagined the classic crisp cotton poplin, pairing it effortlessly over pants with loafers or cinching it with XXL belts, all to capture that timeless, easy-breezy vibe in a more contemporary manner.

High-Rise Trousers

Jonathan Anderson's visionary approach ushered in a new era of high-rise trousers, giving a modern interpretation of tailored silhouettes. This trend, characterized by super-high-waisted styles, promises to elongate the legs and redefine proportions. From Ralph Lauren and Phillip Lim to Loewe and Louis Vuitton, the 90s nostalgia has kicked in. 

Romantic Roses

Romance became the star of the show as roses bloomed across the runways. Designers didn't hold back on showing off their creations with delicate prints and intricate embellishments inspired by floral motifs. This charming trend brought a sense of femininity to the forefront of fashion, reminding us of the beauty found in nature's most beloved flower. A great example? Balmain's Spring Summer 2024 collection was an ode to the romantic flower. 

Metallic Accents Shine Bright

Sequins, lamé, and metallic accents brought a touch of luxury to the runway. With the upcoming summer Olympics as inspiration, these dazzling embellishments are shining bright. From Gucci to Prabal Gurung and Alexander McQueen, shimmering sequined dresses and metallic-threaded accessories can add pizazz to your wardrobe. 

Sheer Skirts

For SS24, sheer skirts took centre stage at Givenchy, Erdem and Carolina Herrera, amongst others. Sheer skirts have stepped up as a daring yet adaptable trend, perfect for day or night. Designers showcased a range of styles, from airy pencil skirts to extravagant tulle designs, demonstrating the versatility of this trend. If you're looking to add a touch of allure to your daytime look or make a statement at a formal event, sheer skirts have endless possibilities to express your unique style with confidence.

Leg-focused looks stole the spotlight on the runways, with brands like Marni, Miu Miu, Prada, Christian Dior, Coperni and Ferragamo leading the charge. Coats and blazers took center stage as minidresses at Coperni, Prada, and Ferragamo cleverly styled micro shorts as suit bottoms. Miu Miu elevated high-fashion briefs, pairing them with layered cardigans, hoodies, and peacoats for a stunning effect.

Though some designers are pushing for longer, baggier versions of summer cut-offs, micro shorts are still popular. Pharrell wore knee-skimming shorts with an enormous, flowy blazer at Louis Vuitton, while Justin Bieber coded the shorts at Fendi to be loose, baggy, and perfect for the coffee run (the models even carried coffee cups to emphasize this point). Gucci's shorts were cut from plush cotton and fell below the knee.

Although the jumpsuit is a dramatic piece, it also makes getting ready really simple. Valentino's one-pieces were more medical in design and paired with chunky sneakers, while Burberry's pieces are dark in colour and cinched tightly. Loewe's pieces were completely covered in scarlet leather and Givenchy's jumpsuits were simple and fell loosely around the torso.

Crochet has always been a key component of British designer Simone Rocha's brand, but it's now widely used. At Botter, guys wore their full crocheted shirts over bikini tops on beach days, whereas, at Valentino, coats were finely crocheted and holey, and Fendi hopped on the crochet bandwagon and had its models wear knitted tops under trench coats.

Vests are trending everywhere this spring! They're not just your usual underlayer. Vests come in various styles and sizes. For example, at Hermès, they're peeking out from underneath crochet short-sleeved shirts, while Dolce & Gabbana is adding a sexy twist to the traditional vest, pairing them with barely-there shorts.

In the men's Spring/Summer 2024 shows, designers dazzled the runways with shimmer and shine. Loewe SS24 embodied the essence of Drake's lyrics with sparkly tops and glittery ensembles, right down to crystalized accessories while Dior elevated tweed with embellishments. ERL's debut collection, under Eli Russell Linnetz, sparkled with full-on glam, including a shimmering Lady Liberty. Men's fashion has never been brighter!

Fashion is all about loving new twists on classic styles. As you update your wardrobe, remember to have fun expressing yourself and staying true to your style.
