Goodbye 2023 Hello 2024

Well, snap! This is the hardest Goodbye-Hello post I have had to write! 2023 was all about investment dressing, classic lines, and staying far away from logos. 2024 is kinda the same! So, I will do my best to find things to say Goodbye to! Here goes!

Goodbye 2023

Viva Magenta: Did this color ever take off? Not really. Bye-bye!

Bright hues: Neon and ultra bright hues are done. Look for a softer color palette as we move into the new year.

Distressed jeans: Torn jeans are over. Look for more classic washes in 2024.

Flashy jewelry: Time to store your flashy jewels and over-the-top jewelry. As we move into a slower economy, flashing expensive jewelry is considered gauche.

Logo handbags: Not sure why I have to repeat this, but I still see a handful of people wearing them. Store your logo-wear, it’s over.

Funky colored hair: No more green, blue, pink or other colors in your hair. Hair color should be natural and soft.

Hello 2024

Peach Fuzz: Are you peachy over Peach Fuzz? Soft colors and pastel hues are going to be hot this year! Look for peachy hues in 2024.

Soft hues: Soft hues are what’s hot! Look for softer neutrals and colors as we move into the spring season.

Clean jeans: No more tears! Jeans this year are whole, without parts missing. Take note.

Investment jewelry: As the economy slows down, it is time to invest in timeless, understated jewelry. Look for clean hoops, quiet bracelets and earrings, and smaller necklaces.

Doctor bags: The emerging trend in handbags is the return of the doctor bag. Think dome shaped bags, rhombus shaped bags, and the Givenchy Antigona; all with two tops handles.

Natural hued hair: Stick with hair color found in nature as we move into the new year. No more unnatural colors which only look good for three days after you dyed your hair. Look for hair color found on people’s heads.

Well, there you have it! Goodbye 2023, and hello 2024! What are you excited about in the new year?

Thanks for stopping by!

Well, it is quite obvious that 2023 was all about chic, timeless style with a little bit of sass on our nails; with the exception of pink, that is a very classic hue!

As we move into the new year, timeless handbags, clothing and accessories will continue to rule the fashion landscape. We will also start to see more pastels as we move into spring and summer mixed in with soft neutrals. What is interesting about this, is that you already shopped this way in 2023! So, chances are, your wardrobe is ready for the new year. Isn’t investment dressing fabulous? Love!
