Crushin’ on Crochet
I know its early to start looking at things for summer, but hey, english weather is so unpredictable and looking at the history of sunshine over easter, us brits usually get a couple of days which are worth baring a bit of skin for and right now this is definitely the case! Any glimpse of sun and we are out with our BBQ’s and sun loungers, ridiculous, I know, but I love it!
Anyway, this trend seems to come round every year and being the ASOS fanatic that I am, I have spotted it cropping up everywhere. Crochet. The knitwear of the summer. I have never really been a fan of the crochet square dress but there seems to be a few coming up which are more subtle than the sassy bright numbers which I am not quite brave enough to wear!
I spotted this little patterned number by Violet Skye on ASOS and its more of an open crochet so I probably wouldn’t be brave enough to wear just underwear underneath for festival attire but maybe I would just be brave to wear it over a bikini by the pool. I would also wear it with just a strappy cami vest underneath to really make the little hint of colour pop.
This lovely maxi which is also by Violet Skye comes in black and white and I love the simplistic fishnet quality to it, alike the dress before and most other crochet dresses I would probably wear, as an added layer of texture rather than braving them by themselves. But hey, maybe one day as they do look fabuloso! Yes fabuloso.
Next on the list of dresses is this summery patchwork number. Its not quite as bright as some of the other ones I’ve seen and it sticks to one sunset-like pink colour palette which is easier to style and amazingly girly. Love it.
Moving onto crochet tops which are the key item for festival goers and a little bit of a struggle to find if you are slightly larger in the breast department like I am. Tie-up little crops are perfect for us top heavy girls and these two are the perfect little numbers, if the sun ever breaks through the clouds in the UK, or if you are going to a festival in a hot country. The one with the coloured pattern is also by Violet Skye, buy it here! The little black one is available in white too, buy it here!
Lastly is this amazing crochet bag which is perfect for summer, just the right size for carrying all your essentials on a summer day and has beautiful detailing.
