ALL IN THE DETAILS: Crushin’ On Crochet

All In The Details

Crochet and lace, have always been the epitome of femininity. Whether embellishing the edges of a cute pair of cut-off shorts or making up the entirety of a perfect for summer shift dress, these delicate patterns almost always vary in their exact look—making each accessory and clothing article individual works of art.

However, one use of crochet that is typically overlooked is its use in jewelry. The potential of crochet is vast since it can be used in its classic form or as a muse for modern pieces, such as the necklace I found when I met this Fashionista.

This crochet-patterned statement necklace worn elegantly with a wrapped blush chiffon dress works perfectly for the graduation our Fashionista attended. This statement necklace is definitely the center of attention in this ensemble as it whispers subtle, feminine flirtations while helping to keep the top from revealing too much skin.

The outfit is kept casual by this Fashionista wearing a pair of cocoa brown sandals. Yet, it could be made even more dressed up with a pair of tall leather wedges or heels. By spiral-curling her hair with a clip-less wand and applying simple yet bold makeup, the entire look is seamless and effortless. In the summer, it’s all about being effortlessly chic, so keep this Fashionista’s fashion and beauty points in mind while dressing up for your own special events this season.

How To: When wearing crochet or lace, it’s important to remember that only one item in your outfit should be made of this material! This can be a crop top, necklace, pair of TOMS or whatever else you decide to wear. Overloading on this delicate pattern will wash out the intricate details of the pieces and turn you into a lace disaster.
