Spring & Summer Crochet Fashion Trends
My favourite trend for crochet in fashion is pairing crochet with denim. Sew patches of crochet behind the rips and holes in distressed denim. The crochet peeks out behind the denim adding a feminine touch.
Alternatively add crochet patches or trim to jeans or demin shorts.
The timeless summer classics are back in the shops for summer. White and ivory crochet tops and dresses with pineapple crochet are great wardrobe staples.
