Drawing inspiration from my own artistic journey, the pulse of the fashion industry, and the vibrant communities of crocheters, I'm thrilled to share my predictions for the trends that will be making waves in the coming year.

🌸 In this blog post, I'll share aesthetic trends and more general trends that I believe will truly bloom next year. From the revival of classic designs to the emergence of avant-garde designs, the crochet landscape is evolving, and I can't wait to unravel the magic with you.

🧶 So, grab your hooks and yarn, and let's explore the threads of style that are destined to shape the fashion narrative of 2024.

🥳 🎨 It's a celebration of creativity, a fusion of art and fashion, and a glimpse into the future where every stitch tells a story. Are you ready to crochet your way into the trends of tomorrow? Let's begin our journey!


Coquette Fashion:

In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion, one aesthetic that has gracefully taken the spotlight and promises to shine even brighter in 2024 is the enchanting Coquette. Described by whowhatwear as the epitome of girlycore, Coquette seamlessly blends sultry Old English elegance with a touch of balletcore, creating a style that is both timeless and captivating.

This aesthetic is a celebration of all things classic and feminine, featuring textures like lace, silks, and other soft textiles. As we step into the new year, expect to see an abundance of bows, a playful nod to the bold and glamorous 80s. Have you noticed bows making a comeback on your social media feeds lately? They're undoubtedly making waves, bringing a touch of nostalgia with a modern twist.




But Coquette is more than just bows; it's a symphony of elements, including pearl necklaces, corsets, lace, scrunchies, heart lockets, and the ever-elegant ballet flats. The beauty of Coquette lies not only in its aesthetic appeal but also in its accessibility – it's a delight to thrift for and offers endless possibilities for personalization.

If you find yourself drawn to the allure of Coquette or are intrigued by the idea of incorporating it into your wardrobe, stay tuned. I'm considering delving deeper into this enchanting aesthetic, sharing not only its essence but also crochet patterns inspired by its charm. Let me know in the comments if you'd like a closer look at Coquette or any other aesthetic! 🎀💖✨



Western Gothic:

As the fashion horizon unfolds, one aesthetic that's poised to cast its enchanting shadow across the style landscape is the mesmerizing Western Gothic. According to Pinterest trends, the term "Western Gothic" has experienced a remarkable 145% increase in searches, signaling a surge in interest that's impossible to ignore. As someone who's witnessed the separate surges of goth and western aesthetics, I can't help but predict that the fusion of the two is set to make a bold statement in 2024.

Also known as Gothic Western or Gothic Prairie, this aesthetic is a captivating blend of Americana chic and deep, moody hues. Picture a world where the rugged allure of the wild west meets the mysterious charm of gothic elements – that's the essence of Western Gothic.

If you've been captivated by the allure of goth or western aesthetics individually, get ready for a trend that seamlessly weaves them together into a tapestry of unique style. From rustic fringes to dark lace, Western Gothic is a celebration of contrasts, merging the simplicity of Americana with the rich, intricate details of gothic inspiration.



As we ride into the heart of 2024, expect to see this trend dominating the scene. Stay tuned for more insights, as I contemplate exploring this captivating aesthetic further. Are you ready to embrace the shadows of Western Gothic? Let me know in the comments if you're intrigued by this trend or if you have any specific elements you'd love to see incorporated into crochet patterns inspired by the Western Gothic aesthetic. Saddle up for a journey into the dark and chic side of 2024 fashion! 🖤🌵🕷️



Jellyfish Aesthetic:

Buckle up for a trend that's making waves both on and offline – the Jellyfish Aesthetic. If you're wondering what exactly that entails, you're not alone. But, here's the lowdown: The Jellyfish Haircut has seen an astonishing 615% surge in searches on Pinterest recently, and trust me, it's a vibe worth exploring!

Think of the Jellyfish Aesthetic as a fresh, chic spin on the 80s mullet. As we wade into 2024, it's clear that this decade is settling into its own unique style, and the Jellyfish Aesthetic is at the forefront of this fashion evolution.

This trend is an exquisite celebration of delicate textures, gentle aquatic colors, and flowy silhouettes. Picture sequins and beaded accents resembling glistening water droplets, coupled with organic-shaped jewelry that adds a touch of the ocean's elegance. The Jellyfish Aesthetic takes mermaid core and elevates it to a whole new level of chic.

In the world of crochet, the possibilities are as vast as the ocean itself. Imagine flowy garments that mimic the graceful movements of underwater creatures, jellyfish hats that add a whimsical touch to any ensemble, and net mesh pieces with distressed features that capture the essence of the deep sea. Layers, asymmetric textures, and freeform creations that play with color and feature aquatic accents will undoubtedly be key elements in crafting pieces inspired by this enchanting aesthetic.

So, are you ready to dive into the deep with the Jellyfish Aesthetic? Let me know in the comments if you're excited about this trend or if there's a specific crochet creation inspired by the sea that you'd love to see come to life. Get ready to make a splash with your crochet creations in 2024! 🌊🐚✨


Eclectic Grandpacore:

Step into the world of slow living, vintage treasures, and a burst of quirky colors with the rising trend of Eclectic Grandpacore. Similar to its rustic counterparts like cottage core and farmcore, Grandpacore invites us to embrace the charm of a simpler life. However, in its eclectic form, it takes a vibrant turn, infusing the old with the new in a whimsical dance of colors and kitschy trinkets.

Pinterest has aptly named it Eclectic Grandpacore, and its popularity is on the rise. Picture a palette of bright colors, unique trinkets like cats and lighthouses, old novelties such as teapots and vases, and stereotypically grandpa items like rocking chairs and antique watches. It's a delightful mishmash of nostalgia and contemporary flair.

In the realm of crochet, Eclectic Grandpacore finds a perfect ally. Imagine brightly colored crochet sweaters, cozy oversized socks, and customized crochet pieces that echo the warmth and charm of this aesthetic. I predict a surge in crochet brooches, adding a touch of personal style to every ensemble. Personally, I adore brooches, and I'm excited to see them make a stylish comeback.

What makes Eclectic Grandpacore even more appealing is its thrift-friendly nature. This is the perfect aesthetic to explore thrift stores for unique finds and embark on creative thrift flips, transforming old pieces into eclectic treasures.

Are you ready to infuse your wardrobe with the hues of nostalgia and kitschy charm? Share your thoughts in the comments and let me know if there are specific crochet pieces you'd love to see inspired by the whimsy of Eclectic Grandpacore.

Dopamine Dressing:

Get ready to infuse your wardrobe with bursts of happiness and color as we dive into the world of Dopamine Dressing – a trend that's all about embracing bold hues, playful patterns, and letting your inner child run wild in your fashion choices. While this trend gained momentum in 2022, it's set to continue dominating the fashion scene in 2024, bringing a sense of joy and spontaneity to our closets.

Dopamine Dressing is more than just a fashion statement; it's a celebration of happiness. Imagine wearing wild colors and patterns together, mixing and matching in ways you never thought possible. The trend encourages you to bring all your accent pieces to the forefront, creating a lively and expressive ensemble that reflects your vibrant personality.

The phenomenon reached new heights with the Barbie movie, where the bold branding prompted everyone to channel their inner child by donning shades of pink. What followed was a summer craze that allowed everyone to revel in the joy of embracing their unique and playful selves, becoming the 'it' girl of their own lives.

In the realm of crochet, Dopamine Dressing finds a perfect canvas. Picture oversized scarves in a riot of colors, berets and bucket hats adding flair to bold shoes or purses in contrasting shades. One standout piece that perfectly encapsulates this aesthetic is the chain scarf – a playful and beginner-friendly crochet project that shines in neon green or any vibrant hue. And let's not forget the allure of bold rainbow crochet makes that scream joy and individuality.

Colors that will Trend:


Prepare to dazzle and redefine neutrals as we step into the era of metallics, a trend that's already casting its shimmering spell and promises to dominate fashion in 2024. Metallics are no longer just an accent – they are the new neutral, adding a touch of glamour and versatility to every wardrobe.

As someone with a fondness for silver, both for its chic allure and a personal connection through my name, I've always appreciated the timeless elegance metallics bring to any ensemble. The beauty of metallics lies in their ability to seamlessly complement and elevate any color palette, making them the go-to choice for those seeking a touch of sophistication.

From silver to gold and every shade in between, metallics are no longer reserved for special occasions. They effortlessly transition from day to night, adding a radiant sheen to both casual and formal wear. It's a trend that transcends seasons and styles, making metallics an essential wardrobe staple.

In the coming year, expect to see a flood of metallic-inspired creations, from accessories to full-blown metallic garments. Whether you're drawn to the subtle glimmer of silver or the opulence of gold, metallics offer a dazzling array of options for fashion enthusiasts.

Get ready to paint the town red as we usher in the season of passion, love, and life with the "It" color of 2024 – Red. While traditionally associated with the fervor of Valentine's Day, Red is breaking free from its seasonal constraints and making its mark as the standout color, especially during the upcoming spring.

This year, spring won't just bring about pastel hues; it's set to be an explosion of all things red. The spotlight will be on shades like oxblood and scarlet, bringing a regal and classy touch to every ensemble. Red, often synonymous with sensuality and vibrancy, is not just a color; it's a statement.

As the temperatures rise, consider infusing your wardrobe with the boldness of red. Crochet yourself a stunning red purse, perhaps a heart-shaped bag to capture the essence of love and passion. Have fun experimenting with a crochet corset or a chunky crochet sweater in the fiery hue. The beauty of red lies in its versatility, and there's no better way to embrace it than by going all in.

Personally, I believe red looks its best when paired with even more red. So, dive into the world of monochromatic elegance and play with various shades of red to create looks that exude confidence and style.
