Crochet has gone in and out of trend several times over the past few decades. From shawls to scarves to shirts, it always finds a way to make an appearance every few years.
This year, crochet is making a big comeback in the fashion world and is a great way to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.
Because trends can sometimes only last for a season or two, you may be hesitant to spend too much money on more trendy pieces. Luckily, crochet is a trend that can easily be DIYed which will help save you a couple of bucks! You can find tons of free crochet patterns online for almost any garment you could imagine.
There are many ways to incorporate crochet into your wardrobe in small ways or to make a statement. Here are a few pieces to try out this fall if you are intrigued by the crochet trend.
The business casual trend has been coming back around every fall for the past several years now, but this year, it’s back with a twist. While neutrals are always a safe bet for fall fashion, people are being more daring with adding colour into their fall wardrobes this year.
A crochet vest is a great way to add a pop of colour and a bit of warmth to your outfit. You can also dress them up or down easily, making them a great choice to go with if you are only looking to add one crochet item to your wardrobe.
Try throwing one over a button-down shirt dress or a long sleeve shirt with a pair of jeans.
The options are endless when it comes to choosing a crochet top. Whether you want bold colours, muted tones, patterns, or solids, you’ll surely be able to find a top that incorporates the crochet trend while still following your personal style.
Due to the nature of crochet, the top will have holes in it, making it a great way to transition from summer to fall. If you want to take the piece all the way through to winter, throw on a neutral tone thermal long sleeve underneath for some added warmth.
3. Scarves and Hats
If you want to crochet an item yourself, a scarf or a hat are a great option to go with because of how easy they are to make. If not though, they’re one of the easier crochet items to find in store and are usually not too expensive.
Scarves and hats are also great options if you are a bit hesitant about the trend because you can easily take them off during the day without ruining the rest of your outfit.
Another great way to incorporate crochet into your wardrobe in a more subtle way is by using a crochet bag or purse. This way, you can follow the trend but don’t necessarily have to be wearing it.
Since you won’t be carrying the bag all the time, it’s a great opportunity to play with colours and patterns.
