Holey Crochet and Macrame Trend
What used to be associated with a hobby of the elderly and craft fairs is slowly transforming into one of the hottest fashion trends of the season and stepping up their game. Perhaps it’s coming as a variation of the sheer trend we’ve seen recently, but crochet and macramé designs have been popping up everywhere as it allows coverage but also shows a little skin at the same time for those warmer months yet to come. Fashion houses like Chanel and Issey Miyake have incorporated this decorative knit into their spring/summer collections with crochet tops, dresses and skirts.
Not sure how to add these beautifully crafted pieces to your daily ensemble? Fortunately, this is a rather subtle trend and blends perfectly with almost everything else in your closet. Try throwing a crochet piece over black leggings and some open toe black shoes and you have an ideal spring outfit. For a more feminine casual look, slip into a knitted crochet dress with ankle boots and oversized shades. Without switching up your style entirely, you can incorporate crochet and macramé pieces to your wardrobe for almost any occasion. A word of advice-stick with crochet in a tailored, sleek silhouette and stick to more natural tones of whites, creams, nudes, browns and black as crochet patterns have a sense of traditional sophistication and elegance and therefore, a crochet piece in lime green will probably not be the best way to top off your outfit.
