Thought crocheting is for grannies? Well, you’re wrong. Crochet made a huge impact in most of the major Fashion Weeks across the globe and without further ado; here are our top five picks for the Spring/Summer 2015 fashion trends.
The Gingham Fabric
This fabric is made from either pure cotton or cotton blend yarn, with coloring given always along the grain (weft) of the fabric. When it comes to Gingham, there’s no way for you to go wrong because the fabric itself has no wrong or right side. And the fact that gingham hasn’t previously been experimented with crochet makes it an extremely unique combination for fashionistas the world over. Chances are you already have gingham crochet table covers, mats or scarves lying around your house. So get creative and see how you can finally get them out of those dusty old boxes and make good use of them.
Statement jewelry is going to be huge this year, but what a lot of people have fashion bloggers and editors have forgotten to focus on is how statement stripes themselves can be an equally popular fashion choice for Spring/Summer 2015 trends. Stripes are extremely easy to crochet, much like gingham patterns, which is why adopting statement stripes into one’s wardrobe would be an excellent move.
However, one must remain cautious of wearing the wrong strips and wrong colour combinations, because statement stripes are all about positioning and placement. Do take into account your body type – horizontal stripes make you look thinner while vertical stripes make you appear fuller.
Deep necklines are just passé. With an increasing number of women so ever ready to show off their ample cleavages, high necklines are what are going to set you apart. And necklines in beautifully crocheted designs? You’ve just hit the fashion mother-load! High necklines are especially viable women for smaller breasts, because it makes their breasts appear fuller. If you feel that buying crochet tops for just one season might not be a viable investment for you, then you can create a fake high neckline by wearing a high neck collar over (or under) your tops.
Anything Inspired by the 70s
Heavy influences from the 70s were pretty much everywhere – New York, Milan and Paris. And since the 70s WAS the decade which most heavily inspired crocheting designs, you will find no scarcity of crocheting patterns online. You don’t have to stick to jeans and crochet tops – put on your thinking caps and be creative! Look at how Cara Delevingne rocked a white crochet mini dress which for Givenchy’s in the Paris Fashion Week.
So what are your picks this season?
