Say hello to the new season in style with our round-up of 2024’s biggest fashion trends, from jumpers as scarves to the return of the kitten heel

Elevated basics

Excited for spring layering? Us too. Ward off April showers in this season’s reworked trench coats – classic cuts and oversized silhouettes are key outerwear trends for spring/summer 2024. Choose wisely with a longline pure-cotton trench coat in a versatile tan shade which will instantly upgrade everyday outfits. Complement with understated pieces in premium fabrics that you can’t wait to wear every day: think Autograph silk shirts, cashmere jumpers, perfect-fitting trousers and day-to-night pumps. Tap into the ‘spring cleaning’ mindset to streamline your style (and mornings) with mix-and-match luxe staples. Your wardrobe will thank you for it.

Knotted knitwear

The chicest way to style your knitwear right now is draped nonchalantly over the shoulders, as seen on fashion editors and Instagram stars alike. Jumpers as scarves (or ‘scrumpers’) first appeared on the catwalks back in 2018 yet have slowly but surely been adopted as the definitive way to stave off a chill while still looking put-together. A few tips for nailing the look: choose a cardigan in the same tone as your jumper (we have plenty of cosy options available for achieving the desired effect this season) and knot loosely across your chest. Alternatively, wrap a chunky knit in contrasting shade – such as pillar-box red with a navy blue or stone-coloured coat – around your shoulders and neck, allowing the sleeves to frame the lapels in a scarf-like manner.

Bright suits

There’s nothing dull about this season’s co-ords. Bid farewell to understated tonal dressing and embrace the season’s new power dressing with a pop of pink, aqua blue or ruby red. Simultaneously statement-making and classically chic, sleek separates in bold shades tap into a confident mindset that promises to up the ante on your spring outfits. Get the season started with a relaxed-fit suit jacket and matching wide-leg trousers for a high-impact look that’s perfect for special occasions. Or style with jeans and a T-shirt for a more casual way to wear it, ground with sophisticated pumps and minimalist jewellery to keep the look on-point.

Statement jewellery

Take your magpie tendences next-level with sleek jewellery in an array of embellished and high-shine finishes. Case in point: this striking collar necklace which features a hinged design. Combining metals is key jewellery trend for 2024, whether you choose to clash your earrings with your necklace, or multiple earrings in the same ear, you can’t go wrong with this suits-all look. Plus, it’s a clever way to update your look with pieces you already own. In the market for Gatsby-esque sparkle instead? Dress to impress (without breaking the bank) with our platinum-plated birthstone earrings or get cocktail-ready with an elegant multi-strand pearl necklace.

Kitten heels

Pretty and practical, it’s little wonder that kitten heels are back in the spotlight, hot off the back of the Y2K fashion revival. And our feet couldn’t be happier. As you may have noticed, this season’s most-wanted kitten heels have shaken off their prim reputation to emerge as the everyday footwear of choice. Put away your towering heels (and, ahem, blister plasters) and slip into a pair of pointed court shoes or Mary Janes. The smart money’s on patent leather – instantly elevating even the simplest of outfits to chic status. It’s no surprise, then, that this dreamy, buckled pair have shot straight to the top of our wishlist. But don’t keep them locked up till after dark – kitten heels look equally as lovely with jeans and a blazer, or a denim midi skirt and colour-pop socks.
