SS14 Trend #3

Ciao Today I present to you the third and extremely long overdue installment of my SS14 Fashion Trends blog post series. I've just checked the date in which I published the installment prior to this one and it has been almost three months. Goody gosh, now that is a long time. To be fair I had been meaning to get this blog post published for quite some time but eventually gave up in doing so as life and work simply got in the way. For those who wish to recap and have a read of the first installment, click here. As for the second installment, click here.

The third trend I will be discussing happens to be a personal favourite of mine and one that I've had in my wardrobe for many years. It is a trend that has had the blogger and YouTuber, Leanne from LLimWalker, talking about in her latest videos. Do you guys have the faintest idea on what it could be? Yes! No! Okay, I'll give you one more clue. It is something that you could create in the very comfort of your own home considering that you have mastered the skill of it. That skill being crochet.

Personally, I don't believe that this is a trend that initially had people rushing out to get their hands on. Instead I feel that it is something that a lot of people have been on the fence about as many refer to crochet as being grandma-like. Some also consider it to be a thing of the past, more specifically a thing of the 70s. This couldn't be further from the truth as the runway experienced a revival of crochet this season as it was incorporated into the collections of designers such as Roberto Cavalli. Shown below are a few of the looks from Cavalli's collection.

For those ladies who are not so keen on wearing an outfit that is fully or heavily crocheted there are several ways in which you can still rock this trend. For instance, several garments have a crochet embellishment whether it being a t-shirt with crochet front detailing, a playsuit with crochet panels or a pair of denim shorts that has a crochet trimming. There are also several accessories and jewellery pieces that are made from this pattern.
  • #FashionTrendTip: Due to the delicate nature of crochet it's often advised that extra care be taken (i.e. when wearing jewellery) to prevent the garment from snagging. 
  • #FashionTrendTip: If the remainder of your summer consists of going to a festival then this is a fashion trend that will help to give you that carefree and bohemian vibe that many festival-goers attempt to replicate.
Below are some of my current favourite crochet finds from the high-street. What are your favourite pieces from this selection? I'm loving the crochet patch dress and think it would look amazing with the choker necklace :)
