Summer styles people are already loving | 2024 trend report

Summer fashion trends 2024 are very similar to the Spring fashion trends so no need to do a complete wardrobe overhaul and your white dresses can stay in rotation. As well as metallics which are sticking around for this years fashion trends for Summer 2024 too. From preppy polo neck dresses to fresh white dresses, there’s a Summer style and fashion trend for everyone. Summer trends still have a very feminine vibe along with lots of sheer layers, rose details and leg bearing styles. Let’s dig into the hottest trends that reoccured the most at the Spring Summer 2024 runway shows by Chanel, Versace, Balmain, Fendi, Miu Miu, Max Mara, Tom Ford, Tory Burch and all.

Shorts and blazers are still a big Summer 2024 fashion trend. Except we’re leaning more towards a shorter short length and coord sets. These Summer styles for 2024 are gorgeous, playful and made to be super wearable.

This summer fashion 2024 post contains affiliate links which did not shape my editorial decisions.

I went through the 18000+ gorgeous Getty images from the Spring Summer 2024 runways and read up on my fashion magazines during the rainy first week of January to compile and share my top Spring and Summer style trend forecasts for 2024 fashion trends. Along with my favorite runway versions of each fashion trend, how to get the look and styling inspiration for the warm weather, whatever your taste or lifestyle.

The RealReal and Fashionphile are great resources for vintage designer finds if you’re desperate to get your hands on something like a Versace bralette and they’re sold out elsewhere.

Some of the top summer fashion trends 2024 I can’t wait to wear:

  1. Short shorts
  2. White dresses
  3. Rose theme
  4. Metallics
  5. Polo necks
  6. Fringe
  7. Sheer layers
  8. Mules
  9. XL tote bags

From designer to luxe for less, these styles check off all of the 8 major summer fashion trends this season.

1. Short shorts

Expect to see a lot more leg this season. Short shorts aka micro shorts are back in a big walk but this season styled as coord sets  often with crop tops and matching blazers. They came down every catwalk and major runway show from Gucci, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Prada and Isabel Marant.

If short shorts are too much skin for you, look for a longer length pair of shorts and longer blazer.

How to style short shorts in 2024

The beauty of shorts is that they’re so versatile and can be everything from casual denim and crochet or tailored. Some short shorts styling ideas include:

  • Under a blazer.
  • Under a sheer skirt (another summer 2024 fashion trend).
  • As a coord set.
  • With a tailored vest or sexy corset top.

2. White dresses

White dresses never go out of style. They’re fresh, bright and it doesn’t matter how smart or casual they are this Summer as long as they’re white. Some of the most fashion forward iterations include breezy dresses, sheer fabrics and even bubble skirts. 

Dress them up or down to fit into your lifestyle, combine with the mules trend or style them under the sheer skirt trend. As seen at Valentino SS24, Stella McCartney, Prada and Chloe to name a few.

Style them with straw bags and straw hats on beach vacations or with slides and a white bag for everyday.

3. Rose details

The 3D flowers, statement-making rosettes and whole romantic vibe was one I jumped on as soon as the trend started. Everything from flower appliqués to rose prints and petal shapes. Whether it’s a dress or top, this is a super flattering trend to have fun with and is an easy way to update your look for summer.

4. Metallics and sparkle rule for Summer 2024

Prepare for party and statement dressing to continue in 2024 with the most sparkly and high shine styles. For the most on trend looks, seek style inspiration from a lot of the 2024 runway shows. I’m absolutely loving the metallic dress trend and am fully embracing this 2024 summer fashion which looks absolutely stunning in the sun.

It’s definitely more of maximalist fashion rather than minimalist. Especially when styled with metallic accessories.

Polo neck dresses and tops continue to be a major fashion trend for Summer 2024. This trend was seen all over the Spring Summer 2024 runways and is comfortable, preppy and easy to throw on and go.

If last years preppy fashion was sporty separates, loafers, socks and pleated skirts, this years takes it to the next level with the comeback of polo shirts and country club vibes. For the most on trend look, go for quiet luxury brands or smaller logo patches.

Fringe is one of those super fun summer fashion trends that give total beach vacation vibes. This trend was seen all over the Spring Summer 2024 runways from bags to dresses and is one of the easier styles to pull off.

So if you’re headed to the beach or a pool party definitely consider adding this trend to your packing list or even combining 2 major trends into your warm-weather wardrobe by scoping out fringe crochet pieces.

7. Sheer layers

Sheer tops, dresses and layers were in fashion last summer and continue to take center stage. They may sound a bit daunting at first but they’re actually pretty easy to style and you can make them as sexy or demure as you want. Whether it’s a sheer coverup dress for the beach, sexy going out dress or sheer shirt, step outside your comfort zone and give this summer trend a go.

This seasons it’s less about gowns and lingerie inspired styles and more about sheer skirts for both the day and night. As seen a Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera, Coperni, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Carven.

8. Mules

I have so many mules for the warmer months as they’re so easy to slip on versus buckling up sandals and let your feet breathe. Plus less tan lines! I’m so glad to see them staying around again this season as they come in so many colors and heel heights and are more leg lengthening than styles that cut you off at the ankle.
