Crochet dresses are shooting up the style charts thanks to celebrity sightings and new charming designs. Sweet belled crochet dresses, adorable crochet trim, and other little doses of the intricate designs are all coming to a wardrobe near you this summer.
These laid back bohemian pieces pack a lot of style into summer and can surprisingly be worn in a wide variety of ways. Because of the versatility, you may even be able to consider crochet dresses to be an investment piece due to the season spanning abilities.
Peek-a-boo - You may need to sport a full slip underneath, if the frock is not lined, but that actually makes the dress more perfect as you will see below. Coastal Crochet Dress has a beautiful vintage, lacy look that can be worn with the soft cotton slip, or without. If you choose without, the dress can take a turn as a beachy keen cover-up or you can really amp up the peek-a-boo factor with a contrasting color slip for a sexy new look.
Classic and chic - Pair the crochet dress with a pair of quality leather sandals, a low-slung leather hip belt and a pendant necklace for a lunch date then do a quick change into platform sandals, a sleek gold belt and layered necklaces for a summer evening event.
Pool cool - Play up the glam factor by using a crochet dress as your cover-up and then add an extra-large floppy sun hat for an equal dose of sun protection and mystery. If you really like the look of crochet, you should try this white Mossimo crochet bikini.
Nude attitude - Crochet not only looks summer fresh in neutrals, the sheer style stays timeless when you stick with simple nude accessories. Nude heels, killer wood wedges and strappy leather sandals create a cool, relaxing feel.
