Catwalk Inspiration for Spring 2024

Catwalk Inspiration for Spring 2024

Spring is finally here which means new season trends are upon us. Designers have showcased their beautiful catwalk collections to inspire and reinvent our style. I love watching the runway shows to see how these stunning looks can be reimagined in a stylish, yet more realistic and affordable way. Before we go through them, a word of warning:

It’s easy to become obsessed with being “on trend”. As a stylist, it’s my job to help you find those that work for you, your lifestyle, and your personality. Take your time to choose those trends that resonate with you, that give you a lift, that work with your existing wardrobe, and trust me, you will remain forever stylish.

Let’s start with denim – a forever trend.

Denim : Catwalk Inspiration

Denim will always have a place on runways, whatever the season. However there continues to be a move away from the skinny jean towards looser, baggier styles including the palazzo wide leg. Just because the look is looser it doesn’t mean it can’t look sleek. For those of you reading this thinking the style won’t work and will “make me look bigger” – trust me they are far more flattering than you think. And if wide leg is a step too far – try a straight leg – here are just a few of my favourites.

Crochet : Catwalk Inspiration

Designers were inspired by the artisan crafts including fringing, feathers, and embellishments. However, one of the most wearable in my view is crochet. It’s pretty, super cool and comfortable. At a recent style talk at Fenwick I wore a beautiful crochet skirt from Ted Baker (see below in black dress version). It was an immediate hit with so many guests. If you don’t want to embrace the look head to toe, try a top with denim, or a skirt with a simple t-shirt to make the crochet a statement piece.

Relaxed Tailoring : Catwalk Inspiration 

Suiting continues to look effortless and chic and the fit remains oversized. On the catwalk however it was all about the colour: camel, taupes, and pastels which give a lightness, more playful twist to suiting. If these light shades are not for you, navy pinstripe is a great alternative – there are plenty, relaxed versions out there like this great co-ord below – super cool and hugely versatile.

The White Shirt : Catwalk Inspiration 

Is it a trend? As you know white shirts are my weakness and my personal forever trend. And for those of you who continue to ask (I love you for that) my own MKS white shirt is coming, and I cannot wait to share it with you. Until then, designers offered incredible silhouettes – super cuffs, asymmetric necklines, with an oversized feel. Pair with smart pieces, evening looks as well as with your trusted denim and suiting. Effortless, chic and, trust me, there’s a version out there for everyone.

Next week I’ll be sharing more wearable trends, including stunning accessories that give a stylish nod to new season.
