During New York Fashion Week, held in September, established houses and emerging designers alike presented their Spring-Summer 2024 collections. Among the most prominent trends, were some rather practical ones that juxtaposed with others that were much more romantic in nature. Many designers explored styles that were structured or tailored. Here are our top four trends.

Suit yourself

Over recent seasons, tailoring has become an increasingly important feature of the New York collections. For SS24, the structured jacket in either single or double-breasted versions popped up on many runways coupled with a variety of pant styles.
