Trending Spring/Summer ’24 colors


The key colors for Spring/Summer ’24 are driven by the need to balance optimism with stability. Those themes pull in balancing and uplifting brights, timeless neutrals, digital-inspired pastels and darks. A few of the season’s top colors include: Apricot Crush, a wellness-inspiring color; Elemental Blue, a mid-tone blue that appeals to stability; Malachite Green, connecting trends to nature; Pink Cyclamen, a vibrant and engaging pink that translates empowerment and optimism and Timeless Taupe, a neutral, long-lasting color; and Radiant Red and Golden Cob, two colors prevalent on runways for the next season.

Footwear trends reflect the desire to leisurely travel while remaining versatile and nostalgic. Styles are thick and more athletic or thinner with a minimalist approach that features shimmering, printed details to stand out, with styles including: ballet flats with buckles, laces, and simple designs; flat sandals; slides; heeled sandals; fisherman sandals; strappy flatforms; cocktail hour wedges; resort espadrilles; stacked platforms; embellished cowboy boots ticking toward thigh-high, stark-white designs and shiny metallics; and all-terrain sneakers, adding a stylish spin to an outdoor classic.

Spring/Summer 2024 Print Themes focus on handcrafted, artisanal designs for trans-seasonality, playful tropics and joyful motifs, which reflect consumer yearning to travel. Top prints use themes of: surreal and playful nautical and beach scenes to create senses of optimism and escapism; florals taking influence from baroque patterns and highly decorative tile prints; futuristic and digital blends with nature and intense color combinations; collages and statement stripes creating uplifting and energetic simplicity; and nature-inspired prints using technical direction with geometric patterns and natural tones.

Accessories for next season command attention, with dainty yet striking geometric patterns. Organic influences such as floral blooms and shell accents celebrate the Earth through fashion as well. For jewelry, accessories and bags, highlights include: charm necklaces; illusion earrings; jeweled chokers; wrist stacks; unique bangles; rope belts; Y2K chain belts; belly chains; aviators; super-sized frames; floral and shell jewelry; heart charms; everyday tote bags, carry-on luggage; storage accessories; resort shopper bags; crafted bucket bags; mini top handle purses; phone bags; soft-volume shoulder bags; printed wide brim hats and Western hats.

As cost of living continues to shape consumer behavior, wearability and utility are at the forefront of design and trends, with reimagined staples and added proportions,” added Ramage.
