As the year comes to a close, it’s time to start stocking your wardrobe with the key fashion staples for 2024. From the return of flared jeans to bold accessories with a contemporary twist, let’s take a look at the most significant upcoming trends and the best ways to wear them.

Statement Jewellery

If you thought you knew statement jewellery, think again. The jewellery trends from the spring/summer catwalks are bigger and better than ever before.

Gone are the days of delicate necklaces and bracelets: enter chunky cuffs and earrings, long and layered boho pieces, and animal-inspired chokers and rings. Florals are in play too – as they always are in spring – but the size is still maximised!

You can also go bold in the accessories you wear every day. For example, consider upgrading your timepiece to a TUDOR watch with a colourful face, glow-in-the-dark features, or funky mixed-metal bracelet.

Flared Jeans

That’s right: flared jeans are making a comeback! Sitting high on the waist, hugging the hips, and flaring out from the knee, this iconic 70s style is universally flattering and a great alternative to the trend for 00s low-rise jeans.

Flared jeans are simultaneously striking and sophisticated which makes them easy to dress up or down. Their retro appeal will also make your look effortlessly cool.

As they use a lot of material, pair flares with a fitted top or tuck a blouse into the waistline to show off your shape.

Coloured tights

No longer are tights purely practical: in 2024, they can be the centrepiece of an outfit, used to add drama or tie together a look.

Social media can be blamed for the rising demand for coloured tights as influencers everywhere get creative with this traditional legwear. A popular way to wear the trend is with a blue or black denim skirt, or the short-shorts that were seen walking the spring/summer catwalks.

To match the trend, opt for subtle hues such as burgundy in a sheer style rather than a bright block colour.

Maxi skirts

Continuing with the theme of maximalism over minimalism, maxi skirts are back in action! These go all the way from waist to ankle and are an effortless way to add a touch of elegance to your 2024 wardrobe.

These will show up in summer-weight floral designs and more practical pieces like denim midis. You could also invest in a silk maxi skirt and pair it with a lacy crop top as an alternative to a dress for a special event or night out.

When it comes to footwear, you can dress up with boots or go for a more laidback look by pairing with sandals or white pumps.
