If you are a fashion addict and you’re wondering about the coming year, wonder no more, as we offer a glimpse of 2024 trends here in sunny Australia.
- Eye-catching prints – Expect to see bold colours and floral patterns on soft fabrics on the Australian catwalks in the coming few months. Rich colour is in vogue and has been for a couple of seasons already, with accessories such as belts, bags and socks bringing in striking colour contrasts. Contrasting patterns on printed blouses and shirts add rich colour and if you’re a girl who loves bright colours, this is going to be your year.
- Retro style is back with a bang – The 1920s Art Deco style is back (has it ever been away?) Chic cocktail dresses and evening gowns are adorned with glitzy diamond jewellery, so if you are planning to attend a formal event this summer, you will look stunning in a retro look.
- Chunky jewellery – Get your bling out for 2024, when sterling silver chunky necklaces and bracelets will be seen in all the right places. If your jewellery box does not have much in the way of chunky accessories, have no fear, as there are top-rated Australian jewellers with stunning chunky jewellery at affordable prices.
- Asymmetrical style – Expect to see a balanced look from all the top designers, as the asymmetrical aspect of dress design comes to the forefront. You should pay attention to your accessories and try to create a balanced look; formal evening events might lend to a minimalist look with regard to jewellery and other accessories.
- Short and sexy – Short of a few vibrators in your clutch bag, anything goes this coming year; if you have a great pair of legs, now is the time to show them, with sexy short skirts and deep slit numbers. If you look at the 1970s fashion, you see the mini-skirt in all its glory and as fashions go in cycles, it is about time for the short look to return.
- Thigh boots – Animal prints are in this year and that looks like staying for yet another year. High boots can be worn on many occasions and are great for the winter when the mercury plummets. Search online for some fine examples of thigh boots, which can vary in price, depending on the brand and material used.
- Green is in – Green is a natural colour and it connects with the environment; expect to see biodegradable fabrics and materials that are made in a sustainable way. There are so many shades of green and you can mix and match; green goes with light yellow and brown, making for an appealing colour scheme.
Australian Fashion Week is the major event for Australian fashion and keep an eye out for all of the above; search for top online fashion mags to get more details of the trends and fads that we are going to see as we run up to Xmas and New Year.
