Few trends are texture-based. More often than not, we collectively take cues about what colors to wear, what prints to fill our closets with, what silhouettes will take our day-to-day from drab to delightful. But spring’s crochet clothes trend has left us all with an increased focus on—and appreciation of—dynamic textiles.

This generation of trendy crochet clothing first entered the zeitgeist in September, when a handful of designers showed crochet pieces in their Spring/Summer 2019 fashion week collections. At the time, temperatures were just beginning to sink from their summer highs into breezy fall lows, and then frigid winter low-lows—giving us little room to pay attention to a woven clothing movement. Sure, knits are a thing come the year’s coldest seasons, but the kind of crochet pieces designers had in mind were far more loosely woven, more vibrant and all-around more lightweight. These were crochet clothes fit for spring and summer (not at all a surprise, considering they were debuted at Spring/Summer fashion week), and we’ve spent the past six months just waiting for the weather to warm so we could finally embrace the trend we’d been eyeing since fall.

Now that the sun is shining with some consistency, crochet clothes feel veritably relevant to our everyday lives. Crochet dresses can weave a little textured flare into our otherwise-structured work wardrobes. Crochet pants can keep us cozy as we lounge around at home—and can double as swim cover-ups any time we’re lucky enough to hit the beach or pool. Crochet crop tops look like they were designed with festival season in mind. And even crochet swimsuits—a seeming oxymoron—are on offer, proving there’s no wrong way to do crochet. Don’t mind us—we’re just perusing our budgets to see whether there’s an upper limit on how much woven clothing we can buy.
