Making a Case for Crochet This Summer
When someone says the word crochet, most of us think of afghans. But nowadays, the term covers everything from clothes to bags and even workout apparel. That’s because the fashion world has collectively decided that crochet clothing is in style.
The movement began when Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera, Missoni and Ulla Johnson offered cool crochet clothing as integral parts of their Spring 2019 collections. And the trend wasn’t a one-season wonder. For Spring 2020, Kate Spade New York, Giambattista Valli, Fendi, Jil Sander and more joined the revival.
Now our favorite online retailers are stocked with stellar options. But don’t dismiss these knits strictly based on their see-through nature. Many modern crochet items provide more than enough coverage. And for those pieces that require showing some skin, look at it as another opportunity to hone your warm weather layering skills.
From cropped tops to midi skirts to delicate dresses, these are the must-have crochet items of the season.
