I remember the exact moment I realized crochet would be a huge trend this summer. I was sitting and sweating at Kate Spade’s Spring/Summer 2020 Fashion Show held outdoors at the Elizabeth Street Garden in New York City, and down the runway came two dark-haired models twinning in brightly-colored crochet floral maxis. I believe the trend was revived courtesy of those two outfits alone, and ever on top of the latest, Zara has tons of crochet pieces for summer 2020. Of course they do! When I’m looking to shop a trend while it’s hot, I know a quick browse through the Zara site will always show me exactly what I’m looking for.
Some might say crochet is one of those trends that rears its head every single summer, and to an extent, this is true true. I know I have a few ol’ reliable crochet swimsuit coverups and open-front kimonos I love to throw on to jazz up my more basic summer ‘fits. That said, 2020 is seeing the rise of crochet to a much more notable degree—the material is no longer reserved specifically for your old beach coverups, nor your grandma’s even-older doilies. Suddenly, crochet blouses, hair accessories and handbags are the hottest must-shop items.
Dying to try out the look for yourself? Zara has so many cute crochet pieces in stock right now, your friends might start to wonder if you’ve taken up crocheting while social-distancing at home. Let them believe it, I’ll never rat you out! Read on for our top picks.
This Crocheted Top is mostly neutral, but the hints of olive green and mustard are the perfect pops of color. The zig-zag hem and ruffle trim at the neckline and the sleeves are such sweet details.
Want to rock the trend over a summer dress you already own? Simple! Just throw on this chunky Crochet Effect Belt to give your go-to an instant 2020 update.
I love the chocolate chip cookie color of this Woven Shoulder Bag, and the dark brown shoulder strap gives it an elevated finish. I’d argue that this is the handbag equivalent of a cozy autumn knit.
If you’re a lover of old-school fashion, this Crochet Collar Sweater will be right up your alley—but if you prefer a more modern look, there are ways to dress it down, too. Pair with your baggiest light wash boyfriend jeans, espadrilles and a micro purse for a funky twist.
This Crochet Shopper is exactly the kind of tote I want to be carrying when I have a meet-cute with my future husband while picking out strawberries at Whole Foods. Know what I mean?
Throw on this Crocheted Pom Pom Sweater with a crisp pair of white jeans on a breezy summer night and expect jealous stares from your sundress-clad friends who swore they “didn’t need to bring a jacket.” Cute and toasty!
I’m taking a pic on the beach in my best bikini, a floaty coverup and this Crochet Bucket Hat as soon as possible. It’s not optional! It has to happen.
This Crocheted Belt Bag is the cutest piece to throw on with denim shorts for a day of exploring a new city or beach down. Practical and stylish—we love to see it!
This long-sleeved Crochet Top is basically see-through around the daisies, so make sure to wear a neutral bandeau or cami underneath for some coverage. Or, go bold with a bikini top! The choice is yours.
Last but not least, one final tote. The Multicolored Crochet Shopper is the perfect vibrant accessory for all your simple summer whites. Plus, it’s large enough to fit a beach towel!
