How to wear/style Crochet fashion trend


Crochets are fabulous way to show a bit of flesh without baring all. Gone are the days when crochet was only for doilies and table cloths for our grandparents. This trend is perfect for summer and is on the fashion front as we have spotted a few celebrities rocking this trend on red carpet events.  This trend is classy, feminine and versatile. Crochets can be a choice cloth for all occasions from formal to informal events. Crochet styles are perfect for beach cover up and to add a bit of Gatsby chic to your look. Crochet pieces range from shoes, dresses, tops, shorts, cardigans, scarfs, bags, shrugs to accessories.

Since crochets are revealing we recommend keeping it cool by wearing natural colours or colours similar to your skin tone. You can also wear bright coloured underneath your crochets for a statement look. This trend is mostly popular with bohemian chic’s and music festival goers but anyone can rock it and manage to look fab in it.

Ways to wear crotchet styles

Wear a crochet top/ kaftan over your bikini for a beach party or a day out in the beach. For a festival look pair a crop top with a crochet top and high waisted cut off denim shorts and boots. For a dressed down look pair a maxi crochet dress with sandals and cross bag. Wear a crochet shrug with a bride’s maid dress or boot tube dress for a stylish look. For a an evening look wear linen crochet shorts with a tank top, clutch and ankle strap sandals for a sassy look. Wear a crochet top with a skirt/cropped pants/skinny jeans or shorts and heels. For bohemian chic wear a crochet dress with a fringe bag, boots, necklace and a hat.
