On the Radar: The 2024 Fashion Trends You Should Know and Shop Right Now
New year, new mindset—and a new wardrobe perhaps? As early as December last year, 2024 trends were already taking shape, thanks to informed predictions by fashion experts, runway shows, and red-carpet style.
Last year saw the emergence of Y2K and ‘quiet luxury,’—seemingly at odds with each other with the former featuring fun and nostalgic pieces and the latter championing simplicity over flashy, one-season hits.
This 2024, we’re seeing a mix of popular aesthetic sensibilities—the resurgence of sparkling metallics, wide-legged denim numbers, and florals. These are essentially classics cycling back to life—and totally wearable, which is what we’re here for.
Now, if you’re ready for a wardrobe refresh, we’ve gathered three starters to add to your closet to stylishly navigate the months ahead.
Taking the iconic prep silhouette and giving it a playful spin is Cole Haan with the release of its ØriginalGrand Platform Wingtip Oxford in Pewter Metallic.
The pair features a Patented FlowerFoam™ sole crafted from a minimum of 25% natural dandelion rubber, a textile-covered footbed with antimicrobial properties, and a sculpted platform outsole measuring 1.7 inches.
The outside is made in leather with perforated detailing to deliver breathability and a welt detailing for added craft. It pairs well with jeans, trousers, dresses, and skirts to take your high-shine style up a notch.

High-waisted, wide-leg denim pants are always having a fashion moment, so it’s not surprising to see this cool-girl way to do denim this year.
Cop your own pair from Bench—made with a two-toned fabric that’s more comfortable and versatile than other denim cuts. Not only does it give a lengthening effect, it also adds androgyny to feminine tops. And, when paired with athleisure, gives those off-duty model vibes.
Shop for P1,199.75.
Florals are always big in spring, but coupled with rosettes, ribbons, ruffles, and laces, the femme fashion soars to even greater heights this year. Let’s call it ‘girlcore.’
Have your little miss embrace this decadent vibe in Gingersnaps’ Floral Lace Empire Dress in a dark red hue. It’s got satin, dainty bows and puff sleeves (also a transeasonal style staple that can be worn throughout the year).
The dress’ empire cut allows for comfortable playtime and movement with its combo of cotton and polyester materials.
Shop for P2,799.
