In the age of ultra-fast social media, namely TikTok, fashion trends come and go at unprecedented speeds, so it’s worth noting the styles that just don’t seem to budge no matter what.

With spring officially here and the season of festival fashion on its way, now feels like a better time than any to zero in on the latter and stock up on enough crochet fashion pieces to get you through the incoming months.
These days, crochet feels a bit different than what the term may be stereotypically associated with. As they say, these are no longer your grandmother’s knits. As of recent, designers have been known to take a more refined approach to the crochet trend, resulting in pieces that feel a bit more sophisticated and versatile – Think cardigans you can pair with anything from jeans to trousers, net dresses that can serve as bikini cover-ups, or a dinner date dress with the right undergarments, and tightly knit shorts that border on hot pants.

Whichever vibe you should choose, now’s the time to bring it to life. Ahead, here are 9 crochet picks we suggest jumpstarting your wardrobe of the season with.
