Another interesting trend reported in 2023 saw many clients from Stitch Fix face a persistent dilemma as social outings increased throughout the year, namely, "What should I wear?" This led to the emergence of a new trend - the fatigue of deciding on outfits, a phenomenon that reflects the current collective style consciousness. According to the annual trends report, more than half of Stitch Fix's clients experienced mental overwhelm or stress when faced with the choice of what to wear.

To help combat this conundrum, Stitch Fix stylists have identified eight key trends for men and women that are set to take center stage in 2024.

Matcha: Stitch Fix's Color of the Year for 2024

Starting with color, Stitch Fix has declared "Matcha" as its Color of the Year for 2024, a vibrant green shade poised to add a distinct yet versatile edge to any wardrobe. Following a 60 percent surge in demand for "green" items, Stitch Fix stylists suggest matching a matcha-colored statement piece with neutral tones to create a well-rounded and balanced color scheme.

Everyday Vaycay

With people traveling once more following the end of the global lockdown, Stitch Fix's trend forecast for 2024 anticipates a progression of the "Europecore" trend, which was prevalent this year. With over half of its Women's clients (52 percent) integrating their vacation outfits into their daily wardrobe and 40 percent identifying this as a leading trend they're eager to experiment with in 2024, it's likely that the relaxed, vacation-inspired aesthetic increasingly bleed into everyday fashion.

2000s Revival Style

While many millennials will have likely noticed the nostalgic return of early 2000s fashion, in 2024, this trend will become increasingly reimagined for the contemporary scene, according to Stitch Fix stylists. This resurgence is evident by the soaring demand for iconic early aughts pieces. For instance, cargo pants have witnessed a staggering 256 percent increase in client requests, along with a renewed interest in silver jewelry.
