Fashionista NOW: Chic Crochet Fashion Inspiration

Textural crochet expands the fashion horizon this spring. Find out how to transform your daily outfit with a mere inclusion of crochet detailing.

Embroidery and crochet lace features on clothing and accessories are aplenty come this part of the year. With a promise of sun that finally leaves the comfort of big fluffy clouds, we shed layers of clothing for a more weather-suitable skin-flashing.

Spring’s fashion are nothing out of the ordinary when it’s all about the return of colors and shorter hemlines. With crochet’s turn to hog the ephemeral fashion spotlight, the delight is in the introduction of textures woven in various levels of intricacy so as to allow light layering with or without a pop of color.

The previous year had seen flashes of neon highlighted bandeau tops worn underneath loose and carefree layer of neutral flowy crocheted tops.

Although this year’s take may not differ much in terms of the design concept as crochet decorates tops, dresses or shorts as a bold feature or accent, the unique manner of styling it in a specific outfit will prove to be the distinguishing factor.

Combined with distressed denim, crop top, choker and chunky footwear trends, crochet fashion shall be given a 90s style treatment as 2014 is the year the fashion industry officially decides to look longingly in the past.
