Retro Style Returns

Over the last few years, several long-forgotten styles have made a comeback and it’s no different in 2024. With retro clothing making a grand return, affordable clothing retailers are sure to stock vintage-inspired products.

According to British Vogue, we can expect to see some iconic styles including the ‘modern flapper’ (a beautifully modern twist on the spectacular flapper girls of the 1920s), 1960s mini hems, and 1950s-styled dresses. 

If you’re looking to feature the bold colours, big logos, pencil skirts and classic, grey tailoring of the 1990s in your wardrobe without the luxury price tag, check out the following retailers below: 

  • ASOS: For beautiful fringe dresses, silhouettes, and hemlines of the ‘20s.  
  • Boohoo: For the perfect '90s-inspired wardrobe.  

Colour is Making a Comeback

Trending colours in the fashion world chop and change as we move through the seasons. In the autumn and winter 2023 collections, we saw neutral tones and minimalistic clothing. But as we head into 2024, we can expect nothing but colour entering the spring and summer collections. 

Some colours that are set to be all the rage next year are: 

  • Cherry red: it’s bold, it’s bright, and it’s sure to turn heads in the most classy, feminine way.  
  • Sky blue: it’s the perfect shade to match a beautiful, clear sky that oozes peace and tranquillity.  
  • Liquid gold: it’s all about how much you can sparkle in 2024, and whatever the occasion, be sure to take centre stage draped in gold.  
  • Porcelain white: offers elegant, crisp straight lines and a truly vivid look to any outfit.  
  • Pastel lilac: a delicate, fun colour that’ll add a little pop of sophistication to any outfit.  

These five trending colours will flood the fashion industry come the new year including the more budget-friendly sites and brands. Keep your eyes peeled at big high street retailers such as H&M, New Look, and Matalan, ready for when they release their iterations of these colours. 

If you’re looking for tips and tricks on how you can ensure you know how to style your colourful wardrobe for 2024, Vogue’s article, “From Cherry Red to Liquid Gold: The 5 Key Colour Trends from the SS24 Runways” is a great source for anyone looking to create the most on-trend wardrobe.  

Clothing Fits

From low-rise and oversized, to slim-fit and flared, we’ve seen an impressive variety of styles and fits in 2023, and we’re excited to find out what’s to come in 2024.

  • Minis: Numero suggests that the mini skirt, mini dress, and mini shorts are going to be entering the fashion world next season. 
  • Masculine: Léa Zetlaoui from Numero tells us it’s all about the “[...] squared shoulders [and] severe silhouettes” with office workwear featuring “[...] sleeveless jackets, ultra-high-waisted pants, or grey leather”.  
  • Denim: Denim has always been, and will always be one of the most on-trend clothing styles, and this is not changing as we enter 2024 according to Numero.  
  • Sheer: For those who want to achieve a “more suggestive and sensual look”, Numero suggests opting for the sheer look. Show off your curves and contours with a “see-through black dress”.  
  • Leather: with a subtle nod to the biker trend, Numero states that “the leather skirt is competing with the miniskirt” and if you’re looking to achieve “the femme fatale look” then this one is for you. 

Whether you shop through well-known stores such as Missguided, boohoo, and FatFace or you are a Primark aficionado, you can find next season’s clothing trends in a variety of stores, both online and in-person (and a discount code or deal will help you save your pennies too). 

Footwear Favourites

Shoes can either make or break your outfit. Make sure that your outfit is one hundred per cent on trend, from your head down to your toes, with next year’s footwear favourites.

If you’re budget-conscious, you’ll be glad to know that next year’s footwear trends haven’t veered away from what is trendy now. WMagazine predicts that the new year will be filled with “[...] fresh takes on classic sandals, just-dainty-enough heels, and fabulous flats (the ballerina trend definitely isn’t going anywhere anytime soon) [...]”. So your favourite shops are likely to carry next year’s on-trend shoes right now. 

Stylecaster predicts the love of trainers will continue into the New Year. Not only are they super stylish, but they’re “[...] functional, classic, and comfortable” too.

Sweater trainers are set to make an appearance next year with budget-friendly options available in shops like Matalan, and if you’re looking to add colour to your entire look, you’ll find pink trainers at almost every retailer as this colourway rises in popularity.
