If there’s a transition from one season to another that beats out all the rest each year, it’s the welcoming of spring. The sun starts shining again, it finally starts staying light out longer in the evening, and there’s a feeling in the air that can’t quite be explained. As we turned our calendars to March this week, it’s officially time to start counting down the hours until that first 60-degree day and planning which of spring 2024’s fashion trends we’re going to break out of our hibernation to wear.

After a long, cold winter, spring 2024’s trends are the trends we deserve. Sheer, delicate frocks are juxtaposed with boardroom-ready tailoring, high-shine fabrics are turning heads, and gorgeous, intricate florets are giving a new meaning to florals for spring. Gone are the days of wrapping ourselves in layer upon layer—it’s time to have a fashion renaissance. 

Spring is in the air, and damn it, it’s time to dress like it. These seven spring 2024 trends are about to take over our algorithms and our closets—and we definitely aren’t mad about it.

While it was worn head to toe at Proenza Schouler and Stella McCartney, the Cinderella-esque hue shared the spotlight with a fiery vermillion at Fendi, showing off its versatile but potent potential. Pastels for spring aren’t exactly a new concept, but something about the soft, sky blue feels like a metaphor for crossing the finish line signaling winter’s end.

While silver will continue to try to make an argument for replacing your gold jewelry, we’ll see it yield its popularity across clothes to its guilded cousin—and when you get a glimpse of the foiled finish in action, it isn’t hard to understand its appeal. The Grecian dress Christy Turlington closed Ralph Lauren’s much-anticipated return to New York Fashion Week last September, making show-goers and the collective internet wonder: “Why haven’t I been wearing head-to-toe gold lamé?”

For once, you might actually want to bring work outside your 9-5—if you’re referring to your finest business-casual attire, that is. This spring is bringing a modern take to the formerly stuffy subset of dressing by playing with proportions. Relaxed, oversized blazers were paired with tees and tailored shorts at Jil Sander, and an embossed pencil skirt was paired with an understated sweatshirt at Gucci.

While many will retort that leopard print never went anywhere—”it’s a neutral!”—it’s true to say it’s far more prevalent this season than it’s been in recent years.

Naked dressing has made its through the red carpet circuits, and the nipple has been freed, and this spring, sheer dressing will finally trickle down to the common folk.

After a year of celebrating girlhood, it’s no surprise that another ultra-feminine trend is in play to follow suit after bow-mania and Barbiecore pink.
