If there’s one trend that is perfect for autumn/winter, it is the crotchet trend. This style is often underrated as some of us see it as a trend worn only by hippies or Grandmas. Yet this trend can look smart paired with a tailored jacket over the top or a pencil skirt. Our Crotchet Pattern Vest Top is a hot favourite for the office but it can also be dressed down with a bright handbag and a pair of jeans or patterned leggings.
No longer the material of blankets and doilies, this super stylish knit now comes in the form of tops, cardigans, maxi dresses and even shoes. Perhaps the most effortless way to wear this trend is wearing a crochet top with a pair of denim jeans or a denim jacket.
A festival favourite, the trend has been seen on Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens, probably because it provides a laid-back, bohemian look. This style is very popular at festivals and here at iKrush we can see why!
A crocheted jumper like the ones Vanessa and Ashley wear is the perfect item to incorporate into your wardrobe as the colder months get closer because it offers the best of summer fashion without having too many layers. We love how Vanessa has showed her midriff which gives the look a summery vibe.
The trend comes in many different colours but we suggest that you keep it simple and chic with beige, white and classic black. Crochet tops are a great way to show a bit of skin during summer without having to bare all. If you dare to bare, a crop top like Selena’s can add wow factor to any simple outfit! Crocheted cardigans and shrugs are perfect for the evening to throw over dresses and are a stylish item to take you into the colder months without covering up too much. Our Ella Heavy Knit Jumper is a subtle nod to the crochet trend and is sure to be a really cozy addition to your autumn/winter wardrobe. It could even be worn in the summer months as British weather can be a bit unpredictable! If you’re not a fan of jumpers, our Avalon Oversized Cardigan looks fabulous thrown over the top of dresses, tops and skirts.
Crochet was one of the biggest trends this summer and it will be a big hit for A/W as well. This really is the most versatile trend and no doubt it will be one to watch over the next few months. It is very likely to remain a year-round must have so get shopping!
