Women's Crochet Fashion Trend

Slimline Your Knitwear

Everyone is wearing Crochet this season, especially celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian and Jameela Jamil. This is probably thanks to designers such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Chanel, Pucci, Rodarte, Nicole Ritchie (Winter Kate) and Bec and Bridge, for putting Crochet on their recent catwalks. It shouldn't come as a surprise really; Crochet was bound to make an appearence soon after lace and knit wear took over the style waves last A/W. You could say Crochet is less daring, less revealing older sister to lace but the younger, slimmer sister to knit wear - which makes it perfect for this in-between 'not sure about going out in just this vest top weather'.

Those with the less focused fashion eye could easily confuse all three as the same thing, but the truth is they are all worn in different ways. There aren't too many rules to apply when wearing crochet but the best way is to keep it simple. It's more often worn as casual day time wear, although on occasion a crochet dress worn with heels and accessorised appropriately can be worn for the evening. Some of the easier items to wear include handbags, headbands, scarves, jewellery, waistcoats and not forgetting Ugg boots (makes winter worthwile) - which are all good pieces to just throw on to complete a simple outfit.

A crochet bikini is the perfect thing to lay beside the pool in this summer and can also be worn as a bodice, teamed with a pair of shorts (denim or otherwise). When wearing crochet waistcoats it is important not to wear it with a top that has any layering, frills or other conflicting fabrics on it. Keep the rest of the outfit uncomplicated. Also try to keep it tune with the feel of crochet, for example do not wear your nice cream crochet dress with your pink Nike hi-tops. Try to stay away from crochet flat pumps - that is of course unless you are a trendy ninety-nine year old. And do not team an oversized crochet jumper with odd looking baggy trousers and your gym trainers, because well, to put it simply, you'll be mistaken for a homeless person.

So, if you found lace a bit perilous to wear and thought knit wear was too frumpy, get inspired by a look I made with my doll and let the fashionista inside you take care of the work!
