The Over 40-Year-Old Trend We'll Be Wearing All Summer

Our favorite retro fabric is back and better than ever. While we'll argue that crochet clothing never really left—it's been around since the '60s and '70s—this summer we're learning to master the art of wearing the texture well beyond the beach.

Crochet clothing has officially joined the ranks of our other favorite summer-friendly fabrics like linen and cotton. And whether a top, dress, romper, or pants, crochet clothing exudes that chic effortlessness everyone wants to achieve when wearing clothes becomes a burden in scorching heat.

Ahead find 16 crochet clothing pieces we can't wait to wear all summer because whether paired with sneakers, block heels, or strappy sandals, this trend just gets better and better.

Welcome to your new crochet-filled summer wardrobe.
