Blame it on the revival of nostalgic trends, the emergence of the coastal grandmother aesthetic or even Gen Z’s more recent obsession with craftcore: Crochet is back in a big way this summer. First popular in the ‘60s and ‘70s, the breezy bohemian look made appearances all over Spring/Summer 2022 runways, proving once again that the trend deserves a place in our warm-weather wardrobes.
From crochet dresses and tops to swimsuits, bucket hats, and more, this season’s take on the trend feels less festival-ready and more sophisticated. Chloe, Bottega Veneta, Staud, and Jacquemus all served up elevated styles, complete with modern accents like elegant patchwork designs and standout hardware. Even smaller brands like Farm Rio and Gimaguas are taking a modern approach, combining quirky patterns and bright color palettes with unique and unexpected details.
It makes sense that this retro-inspired trend made a comeback for summer. With their interlocking loops of yarn or thread, crochet styles are eye-catching, easy to wear, and often crafted from lightweight linen or cotton blends, making them ideal for keeping you cool. Plus, they’re super malleable, meaning you can easily roll them up to fit into your suitcase or beach bag during your next adventure.
