Seeing an increased demand for eco-friendly and handcrafted fashion, it’s no surprise crochet is among the most sought-after trends this season. As defined by Forbes magazine, slow fashion means “Producing clothes with trendless designs and premium, long-lasting quality”, with this in mind crochet is the perfect choice when opting for slow fashion. Crochet has been in fashion since the '70s, but with designers reinventing the classic style they have made way for a major comeback this season.

When styling crochet there are a few things one can keep in mind. First, there is simply no such thing as “too much”. As seen at Acne Studios, a full look of crochet is the perfect choice when opting for a feminine, laidback, yet sophisticated look. The Scandinavian fashion scene truly made the most of this trend, with brands including Soulland, Saks Potts, and Rotate sending models down the runway in head-to-toe crochet.

Tailoring with crochet

There is something special about crochet, adding a retro touch to whatever item it’s styled with. And while the pandemic seems to have left us with a never-ending desire to wear tailored clothes as our everyday attire, including suit vests, a crisp white shirt and trench coats, we are also conscious that warmer weather means a more laid-back summer approach to dressing is on the horizon. But before letting one look exclude the other, we turn our heads towards the SS22 runways. Taking inspiration from fashion brands including Alberta Ferretti and Altuzarra, tailoring and crochet are a match made in heaven.

Contrasts have always been a sought-after fashion concept, including colour blocking, patchworks, and mixing off different materials, and the combination of tailoring and crochet is not an exception. The sharp edges from a blazer jacket combined with a feminine crochet top are an ultimate showstopper. This look works just as well at the office as at a dinner party.

See-through crochet

While we love a more dressed-up crochet look, as seen above, there is something special about a see-through outfit. Pertaining the versatility of crochet techniques, allows the designer to decide whether the items worn underneath should show or not. Wider stitches mean more visibility, meaning that the crafty fabric is easily layered. Layering with either a pair of matching underwear, a silk dress or a bodysuit, crochet allows you to show the items you're wearing underneath in the most flattering ways. For SS22, Chloé opted for neutral dresses underneath the crochet dresses - definitely, something Vogue wishes to copy and paste.
