Trendspotters: 8 Accessories Heating Up Summer 2024

From coquettish sweetness to nostalgic Y2K, summer 2024 is shaping up to be one of the most playful and fun fashion seasons we’ve seen in years.

At Current Boutique, we don’t believe in fast fashion, fast trends, or fast living. We like to slow down and savor the moment, laying in the sun and enjoying the summer breeze on our skin.

Fashion should be the same.

That’s why we’ve curated a list of the hottest summer accessories for 2024 that are not only chic and contemporary but also timeless and sustainable.

We’ve broken down the trending accessories into two categories: girlcore vibes and youthful Y2K. Keep reading to find inspo for your summer wardrobe!  

Girlish trends 2024 

Let your inner child play with accessories that celebrate femininity and girlhood. Delicate bows, whimsical florals, and quiet luxury help you channel your inner princess with grace and elegance.

Tied with a bow

Bows are the hottest trend in 2024 from fashion to home design to wedding décor. Evoking images of romance and femininity, bows are the epitome of youthful charm and girlcore. Although bows are trending, they’re just as timeless as they are cool. Bows have been stylish for centuries and will continue to persist for centuries more. If you have a flirty, coquette style, incorporating bows into your summer 2024 outfits is a must.

Floral flourishes

Florals will always reign supreme in the spring and summer months, but this year, we’re seeing florals come out in a bold, exciting way. Many designers are showing large, vibrant floral patterns or 3D flower appliques on their clothing and accessories.

Whispers of luxury

Understated elegance is drifting through spring into summer. The “quiet luxury” trend is the cool big sister to minimalism, taking the idea of a capsule wardrobe and upgrading it without big logos.

Flats, but with a point

We’re thrilled to see flats making a comeback in fashion. They’re comfortable, practical, and easy to dress up or down. This season, we’re seeing pointed silhouettes with delicate embellishments, crafted from luxe materials like suede, leather, and satin.

Y2K reemerges for 2024

Take a trip down memory lane with accessories inspired by the iconic fashion of the turn of the century. From tiny sunglasses to chunky platform sandals, fashionistas are putting a contemporary spin on fun, retro favorites.

Pretty in millennial pink 

Pink is once again dominating the color palette, infusing a bubblegum energy into your wardrobe. Unlike the hot Barbie pink of last summer, this summer we’re seeing the return of the soft, retro pink that will have you missing the days of razor phones, oversized sunglasses, and low-rise jeans.

Today’s millennial pink pairs perfectly with neutral, clean styles…

Go bold with chunky jewelry

Command attention with chunky jewelry. That’s right – we’re seeing the return of big necklaces, heavy chain-link styles, and thick cuff bracelets.

The 2024 contemporary version of this Y2K style is less about chunky necklaces themselves and more about heavy hardware, purposefully stacked.

Keep it clean and simple with pure metals and pearls…

Wide and waist-cinching belts

Wide, outfit-defining belts are back on the scene. For summer 2024, we’re seeing belts that cinch your waist into an hourglass silhouette while making a statement.

Although belt sizes and styles come in and out of fashion quickly, they’ve proven to be cyclical, meaning you’ll likely be able to re-wear this year’s belt fashions in a few seasons.

Color your world with tinted sunglasses

Tinted sunglasses add a fun pop of color to your outfit while shielding your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays. Channel the spirit of Y2K with vibrant mini sunglasses…
