Gone are the days when crochet immediately brought about one image and one image only: grandma. Particularly with the heavy 70’s influences we are seeing as of late, this technique can be found in a multitude of forms, from dresses and bags to shoes and vests, even bracelets. So say goodbye to grandma and hello to the perfect mix of sexy and sweet with this unexpectedly summer-friendly (you heard us!) trend.

If you’re really feeling adventurous, you can go ahead and grab a crochet hook, some yarn, and a grandma or YouTube (you have options!) and get to concocting some crocheted creations of all your own design. Whether homemade or store-bought, crochet pieces are a perfect way to bring a unique, earthy feel to your summer ensembles. Check out some of our top picks…
