If you’re ready to bid your terry cotton goodbye, consider ushering in the crochet trend for spring. There’s no denying that the meaning of “getting dressed” took a sharp turn for many over the past year, and you may be feeling eager to freshen up your wardrobe with bright colors, playful textures, and experimental prints that will undoubtedly make you feel something. Color-coordinating with our croissants was fun, but who couldn’t use a touch of maximalism right about now? Blame Dior, Gabriela Hearst, or Valentino for the resurgence of the retro design technique—or Parsons student, style icon, and Second Daughter, Ella Emhoff, who posts crocheted creations all over her Instagram for the world to see.
From checkered bikinis to rainbow pants and adorable handbags, the Gen Z Brooklynite has plenty of crochet inspiration to share. And we’d be lying if we said Emhoff’s designs weren’t an instant mood boost on our feeds (the same goes for that bedazzled Miu Miu jacket she wore at Joe Biden and stepmom Kamala Harris’ inauguration).
With so much heaviness in the world, but plenty of optimism for the future, it’s the perfect moment to take the plunge into colorful, offbeat styles the textile lends itself to. From bold to understated, shop 15 crochet trend pieces that will blend right in with sunnier days ahead.
