Since it’s summer all year round in the Philippines, we constantly welcome hubadera pieces in our closet. One trend we’ve seen blow up on our feeds is the nostalgic crochet top! This breezy piece is perfect to beat the heat in and is undeniably unique, too!
Major fashion houses like Valentino and Anna Sui included crochet pieces in their SS 2021 collection, and some celebrities have already picked up on the trend as seen in their Instagram-worthy OOTDs. You’ve probably spotted Bella Hadid’s crochet bucket hat and Emma Chamberlain’s knitted crop top vest on their feeds!
How to Style a Crochet Top
Take inspiration from these style stars, as we list down a few tips on how to wear this modern grandma-approved knit without looking dated!
1. It’s all about color coordination
Crochet co-ords in bright, contrasting colors is a great way to get noticed online and IRL! Here, Rhea Bue and Katt Valdez flaunted highlighter-hued sets that definitely make even a simple cropped top and shorts silhouette ten times more interesting.
2. Try a print on print combination to keep it playful.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with multiple prints! Laureen Uy paired her checkered crochet halter top with plaid bright orange trousers. Put on some sunnies as well to complete the tropical vibe.
3. Pair your crochet top with some bike shorts.
Dua Lipa definitely knows how to make each OOTD pop! Her outfit may seem a bit too complicated to pull off, but a dainty crochet crop top paired with bike shorts is really all you need to replicate your look—whether you opt for zany a color palette or not!
4. A black and white color combination never fails!
If you’re not ready to don bright colors, a safe neutral color palette will always be chic. Model Jessica Yang paired her white crochet crop top with black high-waist shorts, a style formula that definitely accentuates her curves!
5. Don’t be afraid to pair it with baggy jeans or trousers!
If you’re leaning towards a more streetwear-infused, laidback outfit like Koleen Diaz, all you need to do is whip out a pair of baggy bottoms. Your high-waisted yet roomy trousers help create a smaller waist, while the cropped crochet top will show off just the right amount of skin for a cool but sultry OOTD.
