Earlier this year, when Miu Miu and Chloe took the summer staple crochet and put it on the catwalk, we wondered if there was a revised way to do the pretty, but so-done-with trend. Much like florals, crochet is pretty much a no-brainer come summer months and al fresco parties. But surprisingly, there are in fact, quite a few ways to wear the Seventies flower child fabric, without looking like a doily.
While last year it was a music festival staple, this year the feminine crochet is back in a multitude of colour and juxtaposed with edgy elements like leather and denim. Sure, you can do crochet the quintessential floaty hippie manner, but this year, give your existing crochet pieces a makeover and try working them in innovative ways – constant reinvention is what fashion is all about, right? Wear chunky boots, pair it with rocker chic accessories or a pair of khaki shorts – there’s so much to play with.
Here’s some cool inspo to work the demure material into your outfits!
