In two days, the fashion denizens of the world will descend upon New York to kick off the three-week-long spectacle known as Fashion Week. NYC kicks us off and the whirlwind wraps up in Paris. Now, these “in-the-know” individuals will be seeing what designers have in store for us for fall and winter, sure. But the start of New York Fashion Week always makes me think of spring. And while the avant-garde looks that designers send down the runways might be a little far-fetched (in both wearability and budget!), there are ways we can bring their ideas into our world. I’m here to share five ways to add the 2024 spring beauty & fashion trends to your life!
Head Out West
Western Gothic (think fringe and pearl snaps) looks to be having its moment right now, according to Vogue’s editors. Bring this look into your wardrobe by adding a western-influenced denim shirt to your rotation or finding that perfect pair of cowboy boots. Try this cute pair made by Roper!
Get the Blues
The color blue is making a big comeback in the makeup world. I’m pretty confident I can easily recall having a tube or two of blue mascara in high school, so I’m excited about this retro look making its rounds again. If blue eye makeup isn’t your jam, this fantastic nail lacquer from Essie will have you feeling the moody blues (in a good way).
Not Your Grannie’s Squares
Crocheted garments are still riding their high from last year it appears! Whether you’re going to the boho looks or something a little more polished, this is a good place to start. Also, coming out of your grandma’s closet? Patchwork and quilted jackets. Two-toned denim is inexplicably on the rise and cozy, quilted jackets have been making appearances on some of the top designer racks.
Country Club Off Duty
If flouncy and flirty fit your aesthetic, look no further than the tennis court-inspired looks that everyone will be wearing this spring. From preppy polos to swishy skirts, everything racket-related seems to be an it-look for the prep crowd.
Lit-from-within makeup looks are going strong this year. So are natural brows and lashes, they say. On the contrary? Bolder, more matte lip looks are coming, as well as play eyes. If you’re not certain how to achieve that glowy skin look, this makeup tutorial has been my go-to recently.
Looking to add these wardrobe finds to your closet, but want to keep sustainability in mind? Thrift stores are your friend! With a little digging, you can find great deals on great pieces.
I hope this helps refresh your closets and beauty cupboards for spring! I know I will be checking in to see what the fashion gurus are predicting for fall and winter this year. And also, to see those outlandish runway outfits they manage to come up with. The patchwork sweater might not translate into summer, but several of these spring beauty & fashion trends (glowy skin, tennis-inspired skirts?) will most certainly be on the summer dockets of fashion-philes.
