Alessandra Ambrosio Wore the Summer Trend That Looks Amazing With Jeans

Alessandra Ambrosio is done with sweatpants. Well, probably not technically, but she has been out around L.A. lately wearing things like jeans and heels. (What are those, right?) Take earlier this week: Ambrosio was photographed wearing loose, cropped jeans (that are also distressed and light-wash, hitting on several big denim trends) with a Bottega Veneta bag and shoes. But it's what she wore with these things that got our heads turning.

The trend in question is crochet, and there's no denying that it looks perfect with jeans (or denim shorts and skirts, if you'd prefer). While the word may make you think of the '70s or something your grandma likes to knit, we're here to assure you that it's gotten a new life this season. Whether in the form of dresses, accessories, swimsuits, or tops (in Ambrosio's case), crochet is decidedly cool again, and many of our favorite e-tailers are fully stocked with the trend. In the meantime, while we're on the hunt for her exact sweater, keep scrolling to shop 10 crochet tops that she would love and we think you will too (and some jeans to wear with them).
