7 Dress Trends Celebrities Are Wearing on and Off the Red Carpet This Year

Some things will never change, and one of those things is that celebrities wear dresses a lot. So many dresses. But the types of dresses they wear tends to change from year to year. Since they have access to a bevy of designer pieces and stylists on speed dial, celebs are early adopters of dress trends, and often dictate which will take off. Accordingly, I’m here to talk about some of the biggest celebrity-endorsed dress trends of 2024.

There are seven specific dress trends that I’ve noticed dress-loving celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Olivia Rodrigo wearing on repeat this year—both on and off the red carpet. If you trust celebrities when it comes to trends, these popular dresses are sure-fire bets for looking on-trend this summer, so I found some of the best styles for each trend to shop. Keep scrolling to shop them while they’re hot (and still in stock).

Fit-and-Flare Dresses

Jennifer Lopez (among others) has fully embraced fit-and-flare dresses, one of the most elegant trends of the season. There’s no shortage of beautiful options on the market for this timeless trend.

The early 2000s trend we never thought we’d see again has made a strong comeback, and it’s surprisingly wearable. Just ask Hailey Bieber, who just wore a mini version with loafers.
