Last Updated on January 23, 2024 by Eve Dawes

Winter fashion trends 2024 for women are moving away from casual pieces and back towards more classic, chic heritage styles that are quintessential to the fashion houses. With lots of 1950’s inspired fitted waists, straight skirts, and more voluminous midis in the form of corolla dresses. There’s lots of really elegant winter fashion 2024 for ladies around this season. Saint Laurent brought back the skirt suit and cigarette pants but in a more contemporary way. Women’s winter outfits included massively oversized blazers but with a more structured design than the slouchier styles we’ve seen from designers over the last few years.

At Balmain, Olivier Rousteing also went back to the archives with a classic, chic but modern aesthetic I can’t get enough of. Think sleek tailoring, feminine fitted off the shoulder styles, big bows, polka dots, chandelier earrings, ladylike gloves and large hats in a predominantly black and white palette.

1. Femme Fatale Winter Fashion 2024 | Red dresses

Red is another color that kept popping up at the Fall Winter 2024 fashion shows. While it might not be original, it’s a pretty seasonal classic that’s empowering and that I adore.

Red dresses especially were everywhere for Fall Winter 2024. Alexander McQueen showed red dresses with sexy cut outs and hip high leg slits, puff ball dresses with high low hems and red leather styles.

Slinky satin halterneck maxi dresses were seen at Ann Demeulemeester. Valentino showed red maxi shirt dresses with slits up to there and skinny black ties.

The sexiest way to embrace the red dress Winter 2024 trend is with a sexy lace or sheer style. Like the seductive lace and satin mini dress at Mugler, sheer red midi at Gucci styled with red sunglasses and blue flat mules, or slinky Blumarine style. Not necessarily great for the cold but sure to sizzle! So layer up with this fashion trend. 

2. Winter fashion 2024 for ladies | 1950’s dresses

1950’s dresses ruled the Fall Winter 2023-2024 runways. If you love classic style and a snatched waist, this Winter fashion 2023 for ladies trend is definitely for you. It’s such an elegant look. Embrace this pin up style with a oversized petticoat style dress and belt it for extra waist definition. As seen at Dior, Bottega Veneta and Balmain.

For the uninhibited woman, the microbra is another not so practical Winter 2024 fashion trend. So get ready to layer up with oversize blazers, shawl wraps, feather shrugs and opera gloves.

Micro bras were all over the Fall/Winter 2023/2024 fashion shows including, Gucci’s crystal logo iteration, CDGS barely there crystal flower bra which were more like nipple cover-ups and would look stunning under a sheer maxi dress, the feather used as a bra at Ann Demeulemeester, and a sexy black leather bra at Gabriela Hearst.

Skirts layered over pants were seen at Fendi, Givenchy and Chanel and are a trend which is a throwback to the 2000’s. For this Winter fashion trend stick to winter appropriate materials in matching colors and muted and neutral tones or plaid. It’s a fun trend to play around with.

7. Black Neck Ties

Black neck ties were included in a lo of women’s winter outfits coming down the F/W runways and are giving me flashbacks to the Avril Lavigne era. This Winter think less punk and more chic. As seen at Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana and Dior styled with tailored shirts and skirts.

A classic winter print that’s back in fashion for 2024. Think less punk and more classic Burberry. Burberry featured all colors of tartan including red and pink, yellow, and purple and black. Thom Browne featured red and black in the form of oversized long line coats.

Daniel Lee featured classic red and green tartan oversized jackets that grazed the floors, as well as skirts, shirts and giant shawls at the Saint Laurent Fall/Winter show. Dior showcased more muted and fitted grey and white longline jackets, as well as classic reds.

11. XXS-XXL Bows winter fashion 20243 for ladies

I love the feminine and romantic bow dress and tops Winter fashion trend and Balmain did it beautifully. With elegant white satin shirts styled with edgier black leather mini skirts both featuring oversized structured bows. Along with stunning pearl embellished styles, flattering waistlines and even bow embellished shoes.

An absolute show stopper was the Balmain green satin cap sleeve blazer dress featuring an oversized bow. GMDH Fall/Winter collection also featured oversized satin bows. Along with Moschino whose red satin high low gown was a knock out!

Nina Ricci featured sheer polka dot style bow dresses. If you prefer smaller bows, they’re in style for Winter 2024 too. As seen at Valentino. As are hair bows so however you’re thinking of wearing this winter fashion 2024 for ladies, do it.

Leather is always a part of Winter fashion and we love it for it’s practicality and cool girl aesthetic. From sexy red leather dresses at Alexander McQueen to sleek black leather trench coats at Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

14. Sheer Everything

Sheer fabrics might seem more suited to Spring and Summer but there’s no hiding from this fashion trend that’s still going strong. They bring back the art of layering and give a feminine touch to sometimes stark winter styles.

From sheer lace and tulle dresses to sheer black tights and ankle socks the one trend you’re not going to miss this Winter is sheer.

Some of the prettiest See through dresses of this Winter fashion trend for women were in the form of lace dresses at Balenciaga, Gucci and Off-White. This trend may sound daunting. However, styled worn over black pants rather than just lingerie makes this winter trend wearable IRL.

The other way to wear this Bridgerton inspired winter trend is by layering pieces to create a really unique and more delicate look for the day or night. Try layering a sheer long sleeve top or skirt over camisoles, slip dresses, knitted fabrics or turtlenecks.

This is a winter trend to have fun experimenting with and the one above is the one I have favorited that I’ll probably end up buying to wear for my birthday in November.

In the meantime, I just got the most fabulous beige coat. Which is a timeless piece and easy way to wear the beige color trend this Winter on repeat.

It’s an easy color to add to your Winter closet with either a camel trench coat, longline coat, luxe beige sweater or sweater dress for a seriously effortlessly chic look. As seen at Hermes, Saint Laurent and Michael Kors.

From cozy beige knits to chic beige longline coats and trench coats, these are the pieces I’m eyeing this season. Albeit with a hefty coat of self tanner since beige tends to wash us blondes out.

One of the prettiest fashion trends for Summer and Fall continues into Winter 2024 if the form of watercolor landscape prints. Style these pretty dresses that evoke memories of Summer over sheer black tights or under shawl scarves, another Winter fashion trend.

24. Gloves To Complete Your Winter Outfits

I’ve been waiting for ladylike opera gloves to come back in fashion ever since Dua Lipa rocked long white leather gloves in Levitating and again this week after just watching the movie ‘The Last Letter From Your Lover’.

The chic, feminine, 1950’s aesthetic continues with leather, tulle and satin gloves. An affordable and practical way to give your winter wardrobe and outfits an update. As seen at Dolce & Gabanna, Saint Laurent, Versace and Dior.

I’ve always loved the glamorous retro looks from the 60’s and bought a pair to wear to a ball this Summer. Plus long gloves are great for hiding nails that are overdue a manicure and my hands are always freezing!

Wear them with a cap or 3/4 length sleeve to make the most of them and wait for the compliments to roll in. I’ve added a pair that works with touch screens if the thought of taking them on and off all of the time annoys you.

25. Sweater dresses

Sweater dresses are a perennial winter classic and wardrobe staple. For Winter 2024 look for off the shoulder styles, fitted bodycon or chunky cable knit styles.
