ALL IN THE DETAILS: Keep Calm And Crochet On

April showers bring May flowers, which boho queens use to make flower crowns. It’s official: festival season has begun. Young people from all over are camping out for days with their friends at festivals like Bonnaroo and Firefly. It’s truly reminiscent of the Woodstock era, and what better way to commemorate that famous event than to bring back some of its quintessential boho style!

Crochet is all the rage this year as we look at summer fashion. Some people are choosing to embrace fully crocheted outfits while others take a more modest approach. This Fashionista chose to incorporate crochet in the details of her summery slip dress. She adds some white skinny jeans to take it from the festival scene to the work environment. Lastly, she completes the look with some low wedge sandals. The cornflower blue and cream color scheme is reminiscent of a Cape Cod beach house which, to me, is the epitome of summer.

I also love how the crochet lines on the dress create such whimsical shapes. The dress itself combines small polka dots, horizontal lines and zigzags to create visual interest without feeling busy at all. Color me impressed. I have a soft spot for the dichotomy of bold lines and soft color schemes so I think this Fashionista’s ensemble knocks it out of the park. It’s simple, clean and memorable.

How To: Keep your eyes out while shopping for a light, soft dress with fun details. Don’t overthink what you pair it with because this ensemble is the embodiment of calm, cool and collected. Whether you’re at a festival or just lounging around your hometown, remember to embrace the crochet craze.
