Looking for a fab and stylish way to beat the heat? Hole-y trendsetting—we kinda like hippie-chic crocheted dresses, as seen on celebs like Kate Bosworth. For every day wear you’ll need to sport a slip underneath (if the frock doesn’t come with one already!), but these are perf as a beach cover-up or a pretty slip-on dress. See our faves and weigh in if this trend is a do or a don’t.
A cream-colored crochet frock like Forever 21’s Crochet Knit Dress ($21) just screams summer. Sweet little details—like multi-colored embroidery on the bodice, a tie waist and scalloped edges—make this piece a must for us.
Don’t want to go all out? This Hazel Printed Crochet Dress ($89) from Dillard’s pairs a knit top with a patterned skirt. The burnt orange and brown hues are so ‘70s and also a subtle reminder that fall is coming.
Take it totally mod with crochet squares and a fun fringed hem. We can so picture rocking this Religion Crochet Fringe Dress ($57.57) from ASOS at an outdoor concert—just imagine what the bottom would do while you’re dancing up a storm.
Let your neckline and back breathe a little while keeping the rest of your dress a subtler solid black. We love how the butterfly sleeves of Charlotte Russe’s Multi-Colored Crochet Dress ($13.99) give way to a colorful and eye-catching back.
GIRL TALK TIME: Would you ever wear crochet? Is this trend a yay or no way? Are you into the whole hippie-chic style or is it a total don’t for you?
