15 Crochet Tops Your Nan Would Be Proud Of

Granny chic is in.

Last Updated on May 12, 2023

It might not be for everybody, but if you’re a fan of granny chic, you’ll love crochet.

The pandemic saw a surge in DIY and homemade fashion, so interest for the technique and style grew and grew – leading to the trend making a comeback.

But it’s not just the crafty amongst us who have embraced the hippy look. It’s been given the luxury fashion seal of approval as Bottega Veneta, Valentino and Fendi showcased a variety of colourful crochet pieces in their shows, while celebrities FKA Twigs, Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles and Bella Hadid have been spotted wearing it too.

Meanwhile Ella Emhoff, Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter, is also a fan. The designer regularly showcases her very own granny square garments on Instagram (although bad luck if you wanted to buy one, as her commissions are currently closed) and her followers love it.

Crocheting is a complicated and time-consuming technique, so you’d be forgiven for wanting to buy it ready-made. Be aware that some of these styles are crochet-look, hence the lower prices.

If you’re a fan of 70s style, you’ll love these tops we’ve found from Mango, Zara, Free People and more. If you want to really go for it, some of these even come as co-ords.
