The grass is always greener, and it’s officially December—meaning our days are spent dreaming about tropical vacations and the resort wardrobes we’d curate for them. The new year is making this daydreaming even easier for us, as one of 2019’s clothing trends—crochet—is resort-perfect (and fashion week-approved).

Crochet clothes first hit the high-fashion scene in September, when Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors and 3.1 Phillip Lim showed crochet pieces at New York Fashion Week. Michael Kors went full spring/summer, whereas Oscar de la Renta and 3.1 Phillip Lim opted for pieces that transcended seasonality (at least a little bit)—but all three had us dreaming of the trendy crochet clothes we’d be sporting all 2019 long.

Since September’s NYFW tends to forecast 2019’s fashion trends—crochet’s been on our radar for months. But we haven’t had an opportunity to really drool over it until now (when the temperatures have dropped to 40 degrees or lower, and visions of beach-y getaways are the only thing that promise to get us through the next few weeks). Plus, winter is the absolute best time to shop resort-wear; off-seasons tend to offer the best deals.
