What do Afghans, grandmothers and a 2015 festival girl’s wardrobe all have in common? Crochet, which is shaping up to be one of the best takeaways from the spring and summer 2015 runway shows. For those who cannot tell the difference between lace and crochet, the latter is arguably thicker than the former. It comes as no surprise that Fashionistas/os are fawning over this spring and summer staple.
While grandma’s homemade crochet may have been a rough introduction for us Fashionistas/os, its undeniable upgrade from doilies and baby beanies may be the saving grace for lighter, springtime silhouettes. However, the darker side of such a feminine trend is this Fashionista’s endgame. Black may not have been the first choice to showcase the needlework of her crop top, but it certainly made this handicraft more witchcraft. Her maxi skirt is high-waisted and hit at the perfect length for a sneak peek of her black booties. Finishing off her look with the pop of color from her flower crown was the best way to unify the ensemble.
Whether you’re all about That ‘70s Show or cannot get enough hippy-chic in your life, there is something for every Fashionista/o in the ‘70s resurgence. If the amount of signature silhouettes is not enough, the style icons alone should more than make up for it!
How To: Crochet got you itching for spring, but you’re not ready to become a full blown flower child? Much like this Fashionista, incorporating one crochet piece into an outfit is more than enough. Pair your crochet piece with denim to dress it down, or dress it up with a flowing maxi skirt á la this Fashionista.
