Say what you will, but grandma fashion is definitely having its moment. And the latest trend to catch our attention from the movement is crochet. Not only does the handcrafted trend fulfil all our Cottagecore aesthetic fantasies, but it also serves the higher purpose of being sustainable, and let’s face it – it’s so cosy. After making splashes on the spring runway, with houses like Fendi and Isabel Marant featuring sophisticated pieces in their collections, the trend is one that just won’t quit – and it’s ready to dominate our winter wardrobe as well.
If you are done with OTT, handcrafted music festival outfits, or just can’t fathom the idea of crochet being a high fashion piece, we have news for you. With soothing palettes that don’t lean heavily on festival-inspired bohemian styles, and focus on more modern, tasteful silhouettes, swipe on through to see why crochet is the trend you need to try this winter:
