7 Viral Items You Need In Your 2024 Wardrobe

New year, new you—and new fashion trends.

As we close out 2023, experts are already predicting what the big looks for the new year are going to be. And while nobody can know for sure, the internet loves deducing trends based on what’s already buzzing on the market.

If you’re planning your 2024 wardrobe, here are seven different pieces you’re going to want to add to your rotation ASAP. Plus, you’ll be ahead of the curve, so you won’t risk having the same look as someone else. Win-win!

1. Statement Earrings

While a classic stud earring is never going to go out of style, we’re definitely embracing some opulence in the new year. Big, bold earrings are going to be one of the must-have accessories, so be sure to grab a pair you love (or even dupes of some of the designs celebs are wearing).

2. Drop Waist Dresses

If you’re like me and are extremely long-waisted, drop-waist dresses come back in style is a godsend. We’re seeing them everywhere—from the runway to wedding dresses to minimalist looks. Regardless of the style you choose, the drop-waist is coming back in a big way.

3. Big Purses

We’ve finally agreed as a collective that tiny purses are done and are embracing the big, boxy totes of years past. Girls who’ve been carrying big purses (like me) know what’s up and will welcome this trend back with open arms. And you can use it as an excuse to buy a new bag for a refresh.

4. Burgundy & Oxblood

The fashion houses have spoken and florals are out for spring! I know, shocking, right? Burgundy and oxblood color tones are already taking up a ton of space in spring 2024 collections, so don’t be surprised if you see more muted tones once the weather warms up.

5. Birkenstock Boston Clogs

We’ve already sung the praises of the Birkenstock Boston Clog, so you might as well go ahead and get a pair—they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. There’s also tons of TikTok inspo on how to style them, so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of them.

6. Straight Leg Jeans

Skinny jeans have been out for a while, and while flared jeans made a decent effort to come back in style, nothing has been more iconic than straight-leg jeans. Bonus points if you wear them with your new Birkenstocks like in the video above!

7. Baseball Caps

Baseball caps have become chic and go with virtually anything now. Whether you’re repping your favorite team or opting for a fun dad hat, they’re so easy to style and immediately add flair to any look. Plus, it’s the perfect option when you’re having a bad hair day.
