As the summer gets hotter and invites us outside to play, the more opportunities we have to express ourselves through style. One of the hottest style trends this summer is crochet. Whether you are going to the beach, a lunch date with friends or a park picnic, there is a crochet garment perfect for the occasion. The classic crochet item is a loose, off-white top to layer over a tank top or a cute bralette if you feel like showing some skin, but the selection does not stop there. The crochet trend can be incorporated into pants, shorts, swimwear, dresses and shawls. Whether you're a girly-girl or a surfer babe, there’s a crochet item for you.

Crochet pants are the perfect summer piece for you if you love feeling comfortable while being stylish. These pants are can make anyone feel like a free spirited, bohemian goddess! Slip these on over your bathing suit for a day by the sea or throw them over a pair of tight shorts for day-to-day activities.

You may not feel comfortable wearing a sheer fabric as a main outfit piece, and that’s okay! A crochet cardigan or shawl over almost any outfit will still give you that casual look.
