15 Crochet Dresses You Can Wear Anywhere This Summer

The 70s are back.

They might be knitted, but crochet dresses are an absolute no-brainer on a hot summer’s day.

While once thought to be reserved for beach cover-ups and festivals, crochet dresses have made a comeback in 2022 and they’re more than acceptable anywhere. In fact just about anything crochet goes, from bucket hats to bags.

Don’t let the fact they’re woven put you off. Comfortable and breathable, they’re surprisingly cool in the summer heat – including the 40° heat we’ve seen recently.

Crochet isn’t a skill to be taken lightly. The true craft of crocheting can take hours, regardless of how long you’ve been doing it for.

This means that it can be expensive, as the labour that goes into creating a crochet dress is lengthy.

Many high street and fast fashion brands have started selling garments that can’t really be called crochet, but definitely achieve the look. These designs are created using a machine, which real crochet can’t be.

Refinery29 reported that these brands are either making imitation crochet, or underpaying their workers to achieve it.

However we understand that not everyone can afford to shell out hundreds on one garment. We advise you to choose carefully when shopping for crochet, and consider supporting independent brands to ensure they’re paid fairly for their work.
