While the world has been captivated by trousers and skirts for the past few months, there’s no denying the power of a great dress. Dresses make up a significant portion of the runway looks we see each season, and spring/summer 2024 is certainly no exception. Whilst conducting my research for our bumper trend report, I found myself getting distracted by all the beautiful dress goings on. So, I pulled the images to one side as I went, promising myself I’d give them a proper once over once I’d completed the task at hand. And now that I’ve had a chance to revisit the stunning dresses from the spring shows I can say, with complete certainty, that the frock forecast is looking incredibly strong for the season ahead.
From drapery that’s reminiscent of breathtaking Grecian sculptures to modern-day designs featuring flesh-exposing mesh, all the way to competing colour palettes—one angelic, one hot as hell—you could say the following dress trends for 2024 are the antitheses of one another. This, however, makes for a very interesting and unpredictable cohort of dresses—one that will cater to every style and aesthetic imaginable.
