Hello! Hope you all are doing well on this Wednesday. Have you all recovered from the long Memorial Day weekend? 🙂 From yesterday afternoon and into the night, we dealt with some nasty thunderstorms and tornado warnings. Not fun. Let’s hope for a quieter week, weather-wise.
Today’s blog is all about the crochet trend. This vacation approved style is perfect to wear now (great as a layering piece) and into the heat of summer when temperatures climb and you’re pool or beach-side. Let’s look at a few examples …….
Outfit Details: Open Knit Button Cardigan (wearing a Small) // Printed Ruffled Top (wearing an XS) – To me, the most simplest way to embrace this trend is with a crochet cardigan. It’s such an easy layering piece, whether over jeans, shorts or with skirts/dresses. The open stitching of this cardigan allows for breathability and comfort. It’s a nice option if you want arm coverage, too. A crochet cardigan is great for cold offices or movie theaters – which tend to have the air conditioning running full blast.
Outfit Details: Michael Kors Sweater (sized up – wearing a Small) // Michael Kors Pencil Skirt (sized up – wearing a Small). // Crochet Lace Shift Dress – Whether you choose a top and skirt ensemble (which I think look kinda fun with my white slip-on sneakers lol) or the sophistication of a dress, these crochet pieces are alluring and show such artistry.
Outfit Details: Free People Cotton Crochet Sweater (wearing an XS) // Talbots White Crochet Sweater // Talbots Split Neck Sweater (wearing a Petite XS) – These light weight sweaters are playful with an airy feel – perfect for summer! With the open stitch, just be sure to add a tank or camisole underneath. Pair with your favorite shorts and sandals for a laid back weekend look that is current and on trend.
Outfit Details: High Neck Crochet Tank Top (wearing an XS) // Striped Palazzo Pants (wearing a Small). If you prefer crochet accents, then opt for pieces that have simple or understated crochet detailing, like this tank top found at Kohl’s. Paired with palazzo pants, it provides a timeless, chic look. Just add sandals and over-sized sunglasses!
Crochet Swim Options: Crochet Triangle bikini from Target // Crochet Bandeau Tankini from Venus.com – As your summer vacation approaches or maybe it’s just weekends lounging poolside, pick up a new bathing suit with crochet details, such as these cute options above. When you need to cover-up, grab a trendy Crochet Beach Tunic like this one from Talbots. Add sandals and go grab yourself a fruity beverage.
This trend doesn’t stop at clothing – a crocheted look on shoes, such as these Woven Mules from American Eagle // OM Cosette Sandals from Walmart // Fergalicious Calmy Wedge Sandal from DSW. These are great examples of how a shoe can give texture and visual interest to any outfit. So adorable!!
Let me know if you’ve tried the crochet trend yet and what you think of it. Thanks for stopping by! ~ Michelle
