And juuust like that, another season of shows across New York, London, Milan, and Paris have come to a close. As an editor who’s been both fascinated and wiped out by the fashion month, I’m a little bummed that the hype is all over, but I’m happy we’ve got all these cool looks to anticipate. While there was a lot of newness found on the runways and at special presentations, there have also been a few trends that have come back around—but this time with an updated twist. And we like twists, don’t we?

Let’s get ready to embrace low-rise pants and micro-mini shorts (I mean, have you seen Hailey Bieber kill this look?), floor length fringe, and so. Much. More. And yeah, sure…we’ve pretty much just entered fall (and have finally accepted that fab, cold weather fashion is here to stay for a lil while), but we can still get excited for next spring and summer now, right? Keep scrolling for 6 major spring/summer 2024 fashion trends because it’s never too soon to start planning!


Fringe is one of those trends that keeps coming back, so this resurgence wasn’t at all surprising. However, this latest vibe is everything. I mean, crystal fringe? It’s just too good.

Draping has taken over the runway this season. So mark my words: a gorgeous draped dress will be the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe.

No Pants

Who wears short-shorts? (As in so short, they’re actually basically bikini bottoms? We do, duh. Shorts are shorter than ever before and so you def should follow suit with some no-pants looks. Hey, we don’t make the rules!

Sweats All Day

Who doesn’t love a good sweatshirt moment? Designers have showed us how to pair our favorite loungewear with our day-to-day outfits. Basically, we’re never taking our sweats off. Call it pandemic fashion but for public slay.

Yes, peplum is truly back. (I know, I’m thinking about my fave peplum top I wore in the 2010s, too.) Designers took this throwback style and focused on exaggerated hip moments to make it feel new. Watch out, world—we’re grown now.
