Not Into Florals? Here’s 5 Spring Fashion Trends To Jump On Instead

Alice Hartwell

The Devil Wears Prada’s Miranda Priestly echoed the famous line that reverberates within the fashion world this time of year: “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking”. There are few things you can depend on in this world, but an influx of botanical motifs hitting the rails in this seasonal run-up is one of them. It’s enough to make neutral, minimalist girlies such as I quake in their boots. If you’re looking to stray from traditional floral dressing this spring – have no fear, I’ve curated a rundown of five other key SS/24 trends to explore, without a petal in sight.

Chloé’s most recent runway presentation undeniably has brought boho back, bolstered by the recent Western vibes of Beyonce’s Cowboy Carter. It’s official: fringe is back in business.

Red has ruled the runways in recent months, and you’d be fooled to think this trend was going away anytime soon. This spring it will be popping up in a, seasonally controversially, darker wine shade.

Stripes are my kind of pattern: timeless, versatile and understated. Add a little more dynamism to your neutral outfits this spring with this rising trend.

I couldn’t write up a SS/24 report without a nod to animal motifs. While I consider leopard print as intimidating as florals, there’s no denying it’s everywhere. High fashion is going on safari, so why not join the ride?
