The Cool Grandma Trend I Can’t Wait to Wear All Summer

When it comes to summer trends, none draw my attention quite like cool crochet. While in recent years, the handicraft had become increasingly synonymous with a certain granny aesthetic, for the past few seasons, we’ve seen a resurgence in the ’60s and ’70s trends on the runways, which brought the colorful, retro fabric back into the limelight. Undoubtedly, crochet has been gaining popularity among the fashion set, with free-spirited pieces spotted all over Instagram. 

In my eyes, crochet is always a winner for summer. It lends itself well to color, and it’s a celebration of craft. More than anything, it’s a fun and joyful trend, which is something we could all use after this past year. This season, we’re seeing plenty of cool crochet pieces on the market from cropped tank tops to maxi dresses and a plethora of cute accessories. Take a peek below to shop our favorite pieces.
