Spring/Summer Trend | Crochet


Selena Gomez, Beyonce, Kourtney Kardashian and Rihanna in crochet fashions.

Crochet has come a long way from those doilies your grandmother used to make. The peek-a-boo patterns are all the rage in fashion, from tops, to skirts and dresses, even shoes. The style has even made it’s way to the wardrobes of young Hollywood. Actress Selena Gomez wore a beige crochet top over a bikini while on vacation in Hawaii with her boyfriend Justin Bieber. Beyonce sported a yellow weaved sweater while transporting baby Blue Ivy in Dublin. Kourtney Kardashian showed off her baby bump in a crochet dress, and RiRi sported a crochet skirt with a lace bandeau.

How I wore it: Head wrap: H&M; Top: TJ Maxx; Jeans: TopShop; Boots: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Shoes; Bra: Coobie (from a Spa Week Media Party gift bag)

I tried my hand with the style by pairing it with a pair of skinny jeans and a matching seamless bra for a bus ride to Atlantic City. I tied my hair up in a turban and swapped my sandals for rain boots during an early morning rain storm. (My poor feet were on fire once I got to Atlantic City and found the sun high in the sky).

If you’re going to try the crochet trend, there is one major thing to keep in mind: make sure your lady parts are adequately concealed. I saw a girl out in a crochet top the other day and her areolae peeked through the holes – not chic at all! Barring any nip slips, crochet clothes are a great way to show off a little skin this summer. Here are a few trendy pieces for you to try:

If you’re too timid to try this cutout look as a top or dress, try crochet accessories instead:
