Consider a Crochet Top for a Chic, Handcrafted Summer Style

Photographed by Daniel Jackson, vogue, 2019

Whether it’s scrolling through your Instagram feed or checking out Vogue Runway, you’ve probably taken note of the hook in one form or another. Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Gabriela Hearst, Eckhaus Latta and Wales Bonner (to name just one little) have used the crochet technique throughout their Spring 2021 collections. We’re seeing both colorful and neutral interpretations of the artful ’70s knit style on crochet tops, dresses and skirts. In other words, crochet is the It knit of the summer.

And what better time to try the groovy trend than after more than a year of lockdowns, social gathering restrictions and limited travel. Despite their laid-back, beachy vibe, these crochet halters and tank tops lend a surprisingly chic, almost minimalist touch to your look. Wear one on a trip to the Balearic Islands or slip one over a white shirt for a summer day on the town. Take Gigi Hadid in this 2019 shoot, for example, who effortlessly layers a fringed crochet tank top over sleek pants, proving that a crochet top can go beyond the vacation wardrobe.

Wherever you go this summer, relax in one of these crochet tops.
