Get out your old crochet hooks and your colored threads. It’s time to get crafty. Summer 2021 is all about harnessing nostalgia and injecting dynamism into a post-pandemic fashion landscape.

From kitschy hats to trendy three-piece sets, crochet has seemingly found its way onto every item possible as an embellishment or main event. Classic granny squares adorn tote bags and mini dresses, while bralettes with the knit method scream Coachella 2016. Swimwear, evening and accessories, nothing has been spared. All the Gen Z fashion icons are picking up the style. Bella Hadid and Ella Emhoff pioneered the crochet resurgence, donning homemade and designer pieces.
