One of the biggest perks of being a fashion editor is having a list of style pros on speed dial, like Sandy Koszarek. The content creator and former VIP stylist at Nordstrom has a knack for spotting trends before they take over your newsfeed (unless, of course, you're already following her on Instagram).
Koszarek has shared her expertise with us all year, so it only made sense to ask her to divulge her wisdom on where we are in early 2024. A few might surprise you, and others may feel more timeless than trendy.
Keep scrolling for the seven trends that will matter this year, including everything from accessories to outerwear. There are also shopping recommendations for each trend to help you put your most stylish foot—or 'fit—forward.
1. Kitten Heels
"Kitten heels are a trend worth embracing in 2024. They add a stylish touch to any outfit, whether you're wearing jeans or dresses. I'm currently shopping for both slingbacks and boots." — Koszarek
2. Longline Coats
"Longline and maxi coats are trending in 2024. They elevate any outfit and will keep you warm during the winter season. I'm shopping for styles in wool, down, and shearling." — Koszarek
"Whether playing your own game, cheering from the sidelines, or running around town, watch for fashionable tennis dresses, versatile joggers, and athleticwear suitable for on and off the court." — Koszarek
4. Everyday Denim
"The 2024 trending denim styles include baggy, cuffed, flare, straight, and cargo jeans. I'm shopping for darker washes, ecru, and gray washes." — Koszarek
5. Elevated Basics
"Elevated basics are trending in 2024. I recommend shopping for versatile, quality pieces to add to your wardrobe, like classic sweaters, button-down shirts, and trousers." — Koszarek
"Metallics are continuing to trend in 2024. I'm embracing metallic jeans, slingbacks, and handbags." — Koszarek
7. Shades of Red
"A color trend that matters in 2024 is various shades of red. Add a little or wear it from head to toe." — Koszarek
