7 Dress Trends Celebrities Are Loving On and Off the Red Carpet in 2023

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 tend 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.

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. Just take a look at Jennifer Lopez, accessorizing a fit-and-flare dress with a Hermès bag and Femme shoes. Some picks for you include the Teresa Dress from Staud priced at $395, the Downing Dress by Reformation at $480, and the Tiered Floral-Print Cotton-Poplin Maxi Dress from Erdem for $1195.

The early 2000s trend we never thought we’d see again is the bubble dress, and it’s surprisingly wearable. Just ask Hailey Bieber, who recently sported a mini version with loafers. Hailey was seen in an Apres Studio Bubble Dress, priced at $272, along with a Miu Miu bag and The Row Leather Loafers costing $1290. For a similar look, try MSGM’s Bubble Dress at $231, Azeeza’s Ananya Satin Cotton-Blend Bubble Minidress for $595, or the Apres Studio Bubble Dress at $270.

Drop-waist dresses are the most “princess-y” trend on the red carpet this year. Jasmine Tookes epitomized this trend with her Saint Laurent shoes. This trend isn’t just for formal occasions; there are plenty of casual takes available too. Consider Proenza Schouler White Label’s Malia Ribbed Cotton-Poplin Midi Dress at $450, Carolina Herrera’s Ruched Appliquéd Striped Cotton-Poplin Halterneck Midi Dress for $2290, or L’Academie’s By Marianna Laure Maxi Dress for $368.

Thanks in large part to Chloé’s buzzy F/W 24 collection, boho is making a comeback, with dresses leading the way. Katie Holmes was seen endorsing this trend. Some standouts include Chloé’s Cape-Effect Paneled Organic Silk-Georgette Midi Dress priced at $3100, Zimmermann’s Halliday Gathered Floral-Print Silk-Crepe Maxi Dress for $1350, and Ulla Johnson’s Veda Gown at $890.

Celebrities love sheer dresses, perhaps more than any other dress trend there is. Laura Harrier beautifully displayed how elegant sheer dresses can be, wearing a Mugler dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes. To get a similar look, consider Theory’s Overlay Dress at $425, Prada’s Embroidered Tulle Dress for $6500, or Posse’s Phoebe Dress at $410.

Black and white dresses are a timeless choice and a personal favorite. They’re classic, bold, and more popular than ever. Elsa Hosk showcased this trend in a Prabal Gurung Atelier dress. For your own closet, you might like Farm Rio’s Petal Sleeveless Maxi Dress for $335, Ciao Lucia’s Neroni Dress at $380, or Solid & Striped’s The Sasha Dress at $298.

Polka-dot dresses are playful and familiar. They’re never really gone, but this season they’re back as a trend. Olivia Rodrigo is a fan, spotted in a Reformation Jessi Linen Dress ($148) coupled with Le Specs Outta Love Sunglasses ($65) and a JW Anderson Bumper Bag ($643). To emulate this look, try Reformation’s Amaris Dress at $428, Jenni Kayne’s Rove Ankle Dress for $495, or Rixo’s Iggy Lace-Trimmed Polka-Dot Crepe De Chine Midi Dress at $360.
