Just because temperatures are heating up, it doesn’t mean you can’t stay cool and chic in crochet! What was formally a byproduct of grandmother’s free time, has exploded as one of the top 2014 trends so far, with a variety of high end designers featuring the concept in their Spring 2014 runway shows, and being one of our favorite summer styles featured on ShopPinkBlush.com!
Unlike thicker crochet designs that work best in the winter, rocking the crochet trend comfortably throughout summer requires finding more delicate and refined pieces. Whether looking for feminine pieces with crochet accents or full knits that showcase your hippie-chic fashion, there are a variety of ways you can sport crochet this season to fit your personal style. Here are our top ways to work the crochet trend this summer!
Wearing crochet around the ends of the sleeves as well as at the bottom of your blouse is a great way to add charm to your outfit, while still allowing the blouse as a whole to shine through. Whether you’re wanting to stay neutral with a beige top that has crochet accents, or take on some pattern play with this chevron print for example, by having crochet in moderation you can enjoy the rest of the top’s light, breathable fabric while still having a touch of refined femininity.
Back of The Blouse:
We’re loving the trend of having crochet accents displayed on the back of tops, as seen in our red white & blue tank! These styles allow for a fun and flirty style that not only is cute & chic, but allows you to stay cool as well.
Whether at the bottom of a dress, or mixed in-between, crochet styled around a dresses edges is a great way to break up a strong print, or add extra flair to a basic style. Fashion bloggers from Becoming the Alberts and The Fashion Fuse have both rocked this trend in our summer styles, and our readers love the look on our mint green & black printed crochet trim dress available here: http://goo.gl/cW3Kf3
Crochet shorts are super fun for summer and can add extra flair to any casual outfit. Either dress up your look with some heels and a fun flowy top for an effortlessly pulled together ensemble, or play it down with a cotton tank and some cute sandals. However you style your crochet shorts, make sure that you allow them to be the focal point, as they are a chic statement piece all on their own!
