Boho with a modern twist, today’s crochet trend is anything but average. Brands and designers have taken loosely knit fabrics and turned them into warm-weather essentials that instantly transport us to a luxurious tropical vacation—fruity drink and all. And at the very top of this particular trend pyramid is the crochet dress. (!) There’s just something so beachy, so incredibly effortless about plus-size crochet dresses. Even if you’re simply at home dreaming about a vacation, this trend can make sipping a homemade daiquiri all the more idyllic.
Though many of us don’t get to travel to exotic locales and spend our days relaxing on the beach, a crochet dress can bring the feeling of vacation to your own backyard. Set up an inflatable pool, throw together a pitcher of sangria, grab your sunscreen, and head outside donning a sexy crochet look. It might not be the same as having a bartender fix you a drink and set up your umbrella, but it’s pretty damn close. Not to mention, you’ll have total privacy as you attempt to take the perfect summer selfie—and the addition of crochet dress makes it even better.
Throw an especially-sheer crochet dress over your cheekiest bikini for the ultimate poolside look this summer. Add an oversized sun hat and itty bitty sunglasses, and you’re set for the season. Or, opt for a crochet dress that’s a bit more opaque—and wear it everywhere. Paired with your comfiest warm-weather sandals or sexiest sky-high heels, you can’t go wrong. Cocktail parties, beach bonfires, poolside hangs—they all call for seriously hot plus-size crochet dresses.
