How to Look Haute, Not Hippie, in Crochet

Let's face it, the 70s vibe is here to stay. Season after season it's announced as a trend, but it's safe to say that certain items such as a floppy wide brimmed hat, blouson chiffon peasant top, or high waisted jeans are never truly out of style. Even when they're not being strutted on the runway, a chic-minded girl can adopt a Boho-inspired piece with confidence. One such piece, worn correctly, has the ability to convey a number of feminine ideals: sweet, innocent, au naturale, and even sex kitten. We're talking about crochet.

From cardigans to tops, dresses and beyond, crochet is one of those 70s inspired looks you can wear over and over again. It just so happens that for Spring/Summer 2012, it was all over the high fashion catwalks. Check out some of our favorite looks and find out how to put together your own that says you have your finger on the pulse of all that is fashion savvy.
