I’m crochet obsessed. Here’s how I’m wearing it after summer.

Wear this beachy texture all year round.

Crochet saturates our stores and eventually our limbs in the long summer months. For most of us, when summer is over, these pieces are stored and left for the next beach season. However, in the spirit of consuming less, I challenged myself to try this texture outside its prime season. 

Whether it be layering your crochet tank with another singlet, adding a blazer over a mini dress, or swapping your tracksuit pants for a knitted crochet style, this woven staple is more versatile than you think.

Our favourite look right now is one taken from the always stylish Kaia Gerber where she adds a crochet tank to a pair of masculine trousers for the ultimate style contrast that just works! 

Here’s some outfit inspiration to get you thinking outside the box.

Take It To Dinner

Add some glamour to this casual piece with the addition of black and gold and help take it into the evening. Stick to styling a crochet dress with simple heels, a blazer over the shoulders and a glitzy bag. Repeat during the cooler months with the addition of stockings and boots.
