Handcrafted creations are having a big moment in fashion right now. That said, crochet shirts, the ones our grandmothers made with crochet hooks by interweaving loops of yarn, are having a big resurgence in 2022.
Designers and high fashion brands have reinvented this ancient technique and are using it to craft garments – sweaters, shirts, cardigans, hats and pants – that suit the millennial sensibility.
Influencers and celebrities who understand fashion trends are happily sporting this sheer 70s aesthetic.
The latest celebrity to follow the trend is none other than Gen-Z style icon Rohit Saraf.
