Thanks for the trends 2023, here’s to an exciting 2024!

What a year 2023 has been for fashion. From the Disney inspired shimmer of 'Mermaidcore', to the boldly pink 'Barbiecore' and Succession influenced 'Quiet Luxury' epitomised by monochrome and muted tones in high-end pieces, strategically free of logos. As always trends rested heavily on the influence of the entertainment world.
Other rising trends included AI art and Chat GPT, the resurgence of 90’s grunge, cargo pants and claw clips, the return of the mega concert tour, the Mary Jane, and Vinyl records.

2024 will see a Parisian Olympic games, a major UK and US political election and big film and music releases to keep us on the edge of our seats. 

Pinterest searches have led the platform to predict a rise in trends such as 'Eclectic Grandpa' (think retro streetwear, chic cardigans and customised clothing), 'Kitschens' redesigned with thrifted finds and vintage appliances, 'Cafécore' and the coffee shop vibe coming home.  And our favourite - 'Give a Scrap' suggests a move towards repurposing fabrics and clothing and a rising awareness around food sustainability with leftover recipes. 

Pantone colour trends for 2024 say the colour of the year is Peach Fuzz - A velvety, warm and gentle peach tone. With other predictions in colour trends to include Rusty Oranges, warm Stones, cool Greys, and silverly Metallics.
