Grandma-Approved Crochet Has A Fresh Summer Upgrade
Remember the crafty crochet sweaters your grandma made, which you strategically only wore to visit her? Well, they are considered cool now! Vibrant crochet yarns threaded into funky beach-friendly silhouettes are a major vine right now. Think dainty bralettes, matching cardigans, bucket hats, bikini tops, fringed skirts, and shredded dresses – the nifty art of crochet can be incorporated in almost everything.
Crochet is like that neglected kid before puberty who has now had a sudden glow up. Supermodels like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner are often sited in crochet all-overs or coordinated sets during their dreamy vacations. The newest cool kid on the block, Ella Emhoff, the ultimate geek-chic representative, has also been experimenting with various crochet items. Fashion houses like Valentino and Bottega Veneta have also predicted crochet takeover with their recent spring/summer presentation.
If you want to jump on to this new and evolved, boho/kitsch trend but don’t know how to start, here’s are some celebrity-approved ways in which you can roll with it.
1. Oversized Patchwork Knitwear
Trust Harry Styles to take old-lady pearls and crochet knitwear and make it cool. He styled his colour-blocked JW Anderson jacket with regular jeans and t-shirt combination, keeping the focus on the MVP of his outfit.
2. Sheer Short Dress
Pin it to your style board for your next beach getaway. Like Bella Hadid, you can throw over a simple dress on your bikini and a pair of sneakers to create that post-dip dinner look. Channelling Cher from the ’70s.
3. Casual Bralette
If you feel head-to-toe crochet is too much commitment for you, do it like Priyanka Chopra Jonas. She infused a bralette in her everyday look and teamed it with a cropped cardigan and boyfriend jeans.
4. Risque Halter Top
Kylie Jenner took a basic halter neck top and gave it the late ’90s and early 2000s spin with an all-brown monotone look, including leather pants and a matching jacket. Brownie points on the short sling arm candy and hairdo

Model Ella Emhoff went for a holy trinity crochet look. She matched her bikini top with her bucket hat and bag and created a checkered look for a sweltering day. If you want to dial it up a notch with your crochet game, this is the look you can imitate.
