I never thought crochet could be worn stylishly so many ways. They're simply great for combating 100+ degree heat. They add volume, dimension, and texture to your outfit without so much coverage. Your sweat pores will be jumping for joy! Unfortunately, they're quite pricey. I looked at forever21.com and urbanoutfitters.com -- they do carry crochet this summer at pretty decent prices.
Stepping away from what they were once known for: table cloths, blankets, and accessories, they became more en vogue in recent years. Big designers like Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Dolce Gabbana, Gucci, and Stella Mc Cartney showcased crochet on the runways for their summer 2011 collections.
Beautiful crochet patterns make crochets interesting and desirable. However, crochet is more intricate and stiffer than most fabrics. How do we wear them form-fittingly?
Here are some styling ideas ...
