Hands up, who took up crochet as a lockdown hobby? Yet again it’s trending this spring, from Kali Uchis’ racy bikini to checker board co-ords and Bella’s support of lockdown start up Memorial Day – to get ahead of the game, we’ve compiled a rundown of some of our favourite crochet pieces available to shop right now.
This Zara crocheted two-piece is the ideal beach cover-up, with open lace-up sides perfect for throwing over a bikini. The chic colour palette means you can also dress it up a little for a nice brunch outfit.
The crochet trend is extending out to accessories, and who doesn’t love a crocheted bag? The perfect summer follow-on from 2020’s fishnet shopper bag, this white daisy crocheted bag from Mango is delicate and perfect for adding a bright Spring/ Summer feel to ensembles.
Brands like Urban Outfitters and Asos have caught on to the trend too, as crochet hats are becoming a staple of the spring season, worn by everyone from Beabadoobee to Bella Hadid.
If you’re not completely feeling the crochet trend but still kind of want to get on board, these Gianvito Rossi crochet mules from MatchesFashion might be the perfect compromise for you. With a subtle hint of the crochet trend, the mules are the perfect match for Spring/Summer dresses and tie in nicely with a crocheted bag if you want to step it up a little without going full out.
For sailor summer vibes, meet the Gucci striped halter neck. With an open back made for warm days, the sailor-inspired crochet top is perfect for any summer food market shopping or seaside walk. The piece can even be layered up for a chillier evening.
This Marco Rambaldi cropped tank top from FarFetch is one of our favourites for its perfect Spring/Summer colour palette. With pastels and bright colours trending again this SS, this top is the perfect blend of trends. Its open-knit sides are perfect for warmer days, and it’s a great transfer piece from beach cover-up to a sunset walk when paired with elegant cigarette trousers.
Finally, this ethereal inspired Alexander McQueen’s dress. With a full layered skirt and crocheted hems, the dress is the perfect nod to the trend. Its floaty layers and square neckline embody the fairy-tale style dresses that are growing ever popular this year. Pair with a chunky belt and boots for a more casual style, or simple, strappy heels for a more elegant garden party feel.
