Now that the summer is in full swing, all of us fashion focused females need to figure out a way to dress and feel comfy during hot summer days and nights. We never EVER want to compromise looking fabulous but wearing silks and other fabrics can turn a ‘Duo” into a sweaty “Don’t” very quickly. So what’s a girl to do you ask? Well, the answer is simple. Embrace the wonderful, semi sheer fabric of crochet and you are ready to take on the temperature outside and still feel chic and cool like the ocean breezes.

Crochet is made from loops of yarn, created using a single hook. And though it might sound simple, it is a very delicate process and we are in awe of a “crochetist” (probably not a real word) and the patience it takes for them to produce such beautiful clothing.

We love, love, love how this sexy trend has found it’s way into every part of a girl’s wardrobe. From dresses, pants, vests, shirts, shorts, bikinis, coverups, and even handbags, crochet is everywhere! Being the “it” knit of the season, it is constantly popping up on runways, and in all the high fashion magazines. Because crochet lets you have a glimpse of skin while still being partially covered up, it is a trend being embraced by everyone, from the most modest to the most confident. Check out our DUOs and DONTS below and make sure to go get yourself some crochet!

These first 3 crochet tops are DUOS. They are effortless, yet flirty!

Vanessa is sporting a DON'T here. This is a way too trendy option and not particular practical unless you happen to be going to a hippie type music festival in 95 degree weather!

Crochet in color can be a DUO when done right like this Missoni stunner.

DON'T go color crochet crazy. This reminds us of quilts we used in the 70's. A heavy, sweaty, dizzying DON'T!

Kourtney's Tibi crochet dress and little Mason all dressed up and dapper are two definite DUOS!

The idea of a crochet romper is wonderful, except when it is big and baggy like this version. DON'T let your crochet wear you!

And finally, we have Leann wearing this Emilio Pucci crochet maxi at her post wedding brunch last year. What are your thought? Is this a DUO or DON'T? Write your comments and let us know what you think!!
