trends spotted at the Spring-Summer 2024 Fashion Week

After a month full of fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, what are the trends spotted at Spring-Summer 2024 Fashion Week? Sheer or gold white dresses, miniskirts or mini shorts, floral or fringed patterns, total denim looks or leather jackets… Get a glimpse at the pieces we will all wear in the next few months.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 Mini trend: the mini short

Indeed, this Fashion Week trend also applies to shorts. Mini shorts displayed a minimalist, jet set-like style at Gucci, Chanel, Valentino and GCDS. Prada and Dolce & Gabbana presented a neo-tailoring version of it, while Khaite and Tom Ford opted for a rock’n’roll version.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 No Pants trend

Bolder than the mini, the no pants will definitely be a hot trend next summer. Set by Kendall Jenner after being photographed in a Bottega Veneta jumper and tights revealing her panties in November 2022, the pantless look emerged on many catwalks this Fashion spaceman Week – at Bottega Veneta indeed, with black panties paired with a jewel-collared top, at the Luar and Schiaparelli shows in a decadent workwear style, at Ferragamo in a minimalist version, at Marni with a matching camisole, at Miu Miu with swim trunks and at Vaillant with jewel panties.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 Bra-top trend

Another upcoming trend is the bra-top, which consists in wearing your bra as an actual top and will appeal to everyone who prefers to drop the top rather than the bottom. More covering than the micro-bra trend from the Fall-Winter 2023-2024 collections, the bra-top is minimalist at Rick Owens, sophisticated at Hermès and Atlein, worn like a jewel at Vaillant, sober at Dries Van Noten delicate, or sported over a tee-shirt at Acne Studios. Otherwise, panties are on full display at the Dior and Dolce & Gabbana shows. Whatever style you chose, lingerie now becomes a fashion statement.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 See-through trend

For those who want to underline their curves for a more suggestive and sensual look, there is nothing better than the see-through trend presented on many catwalks during this Spring-Summer 2024 Fashion Week. The trend takes on a romantic and gothic flair with the see-through black dresses seen at the Givenchy, Alaïa, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Dior, and Ann Demeulemeester shows, or a vestal and fatale aura with black dresses so transparent they reveal more than they dress at The Attico, Coperni and Atlein shows. At the Victoria Beckham show, the dress was only made of white tulle, while Mugler opted for transparent fringes, and Philosophy chose a nude palette coupled with rhinestones. At Burc Akyol, Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana, the see-through tops are less bold but just as revealing.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 White Dress trend

Next summer, the white dress will be competing with the slip dress and the little black dress. Yet, to avoid the “wedding gown” effect, the white dress is short and minimalist, just like the nineties-inspired ones spotted on the Gucci, Valentino, Tory Burch, and Theory catwalks, or the immaculate designs playing with transparency for a fetishist-inspired look at Alaïa. Luar offered a neo-tee-shirt option, while Proenza Schouler, Khaite and Sportmax presented long, minimalist versions of the white dress.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 Gold trend

While silver looks immediately offer a futuristic look, gold dresses and suits tap into a baroque, even bling, style. At the Balenciaga, Ralph Lauren, Akris, and Blumarine, long dresses evoked the stars’ red-carpet look, while at Miu Miu prefered to use gold on a jacquard pattern for everyday wear, on a mini-dress, and on a sixties-cut jacket and skirt ensemble. At the Stella McCartney show, gold suits rocked, as a tribute to her father Paul McCartney, the iconic bassist of the Beatles. Tom Ford presented bling and mini gold dresses.

  1. The Spring-Summer 2024 Glitter trend

There’s nothing better for evening glamour than a top or dress adorned with sequins, pearls, and rhinestones. Some designers embraced the trend with touches of glitter, such as a sequin top with aquatic colors and satin pants at Giorgio Armani, an embroidered minidress at Gucci, a black dress adorned with pearls and worn over a cashmere sweater at Miu Miu, or a crystal top paired with leather shorts at Moschino. Others opted for an all-over look, such as Courrèges’ black dress with cut-outs, Chanel’s black pantsuit, Rabanne’s fatale silver sequin dress with a long slit, or Theory’s minimalist white sequin look. Finally, to imitate the iconic Carolyn Bessette, we can draw our inspiration from the Carolina Herrera show and its silver sequined pencil skirt paired with a black shirt.
