Growing up I was fortunate enough
to have my fair share of hand crocheted
scarves, dresses, tops and capes.
In fact, my grandmother taught me how to crochet...twice.
My mother once.
It didn't stick.
So revisiting this hot trend today, well,
it's right up my yarn store!

|Same deal as above but in black...cool, right?|
The options are so diverse at the moment, there is
something out there for everyone. There are also warnings that come with crocheted clothing.

First, beware overdoing the hippie look.
It works well to throw in something a bit edgy or modern—style it with contemporary accessories and shoes.
Second, beware excessive or unintended exposure
(the dreaded nip-slip). A sexy camisole or slip
goes a long way with crochet work!
Lastly, make sure it fits...too small and you can look like a sausage roll, too big and you might look like you're channeling a long-gone 60s rock star.
|Fair Harven Crochet Dress from General Pant Co, approximately $150US|
|Heirloom Dress from Funktional at Need Supply Co, $173US|
If it's all a bit too much, go for something like
the above look from Need Supply—a less committed,
but completely hip version.
Or opt for a simple crochet trim or accent like below.

If your really lucky, you paid attention when
someone taught you how to crochet and you can
whip up your own perfect one-of-a-kind ensemble.
But, if you're anything like me, you'll need to suffice with spending your hard-earned dollars on one of these darlings.
