You know those timeless trends that come back to life every single season, year after year? In my mind, crochet is the summer trend that will never die, and believe me, I have no complaints. Just as I love chunky knits in the winter, I’m drawn to crochet’s cozy (but still lightweight, fun and beachy!) vibes when the warm weather hits. Fortunately, it’s a super easy trend to come by. You don’t have to scour the internet for cute crochet pieces—especially not since I already rounded up 21 irresistible picks below. You’re welcome in advance! Just let me borrow #12, thanks!
While crochet is a forever trend for sure, it’s particularly popular this summer. Designers like Kate Spade played up this fun, textured material in their Spring/Summer 2020 collections, and it’s as good over your swimsuit on the beach as it is coming down the runway. In fact, it makes for a pretty cute handbag, too! There are very few things that don’t look great when done in crochet. Underwear, maybe, but I can’t think of many others.
The truly great thing about crochet is its casual elegance. A crochet material is great for dressing down maxi dresses or going-out tops without making them look too casual. The texture adds plenty of interest, but the overall vibe is laid-back and breezy. Just what you want when curating your summer essentials!
