Distilling hundreds of runway shows across four cities into a handful of digestible trends isn’t easy, but someone has to do it — and this season, we’ve landed on five main themes ripe with daring silhouettes, unexpected materials, and major accessories.

Denim was presented in edgy head-to-toe looks from Mugler and Diesel, while soft coquette motifs and pastels ruled the romantic trend. Menswear was turned boyswear by brands like Miu Miu and Dries Van Noten, which featured longline shorts and slouchy tailoring. And Bottega Veneta and Stella McCartney proved that office- and party-wear can live simultaneously with fringe and embellished details.

Ahead, we break down the five need-to-know trends of spring 2024 and, of course, how to shop each look.

Boyswear For Cool Girls


The Spring/Summer 2024 runways gave a crash course in raiding the boys section. Pair your sweater vest with your board shorts, and top it off with a baseball cap and opticals.
