Crochet Dress: Which Model Will Boost Your Daily Look?
It’s been a while since the knitwear moved out from the sweater department into our dresses. An essential symbol of the 1960s and 70s, the crochet dress quickly became a must-have piece for sunny days, and with good reason. Chic, bohemian and glamorous, it inspires designers and fashion houses to create the ultimate summer look. The model that will once again wreak havoc this summer 2023 is undoubtedly the short crochet dress. Beige, white, striped, with flowers or even mosaic for the most daring fashionistas, it is available to suit every taste. We love the Coachella effect for a boho chic summer festival look.
Other trending knit dress designs include the long crochet dress. Slit, with thin straps or even with a low back to play on transparency, it is the ideal dress for a summer dinner by the sea. For the beach, opt for a white or beige midi knit dress, available from H&M, Zara or even at Etam. For a chic evening, there’s nothing like the cut-out model which is sure to overshadow the little black dress. Same story for the long crochet dress with a bare back which will surely be a hit this season. Finally, to add color to your summer wardrobe, dare to wear Na-Kd’s colorful striped maxi model, Kiabi’s brightly colored short dress or Nasty Gal’s floral knit dress.

At the Beach
Whether you prefer sea and sand or pool during the summer, you are surely looking for a stylish, light and easy to put on outfit. The crochet dress is at the top of this season’s 2023 beachwear trend. It’s a delicate addition to bikinis, one-pieces and tankinis. And so as not to forget its origins, crochet can be seen in many colors at the seaside. Red, orange, yellow, green, with flowers, striped or even multicolored, the knit dress guarantees you a chic and bohemian look during your vacation. For a softer look, opt for nude and pastel tones, such as beige, pale pink, ivory and khaki. Add a straw tote bag, a pair of sunglasses, mesh mules and a scarf in your hair, and you’re done!
For Everyday Wear
This season, crochet is gaining ground. It leaves the beach to accompany you on the street and enhance your everyday style. Trendy and versatile, the crochet dress is ideal for bringing color to your wardrobe. Choose a beige, white or black midi model, in a gradient color, with flowers or even vertical stripes to elongate the silhouette. In short, anything is allowed. Wear it with a good basic underneath: a skirt, a crop top, a lace bralette or even cycling shorts. Combine your long or mid-length crochet dress with sandals, sneakers or cowboy boots for a chic and practical festival outfit. Fans of the short style can set their sights on the white crochet mini dress. A must-have for sunny days, it promises to enhance all tanned skins!
In the Evening
It’s been a while since the summer dress trend has been towards transparent crochet or net models! A very sexy detail in recent seasons: rather than revealing your belly, you let your whole body show through. The transparent dress plays with layering, sometimes over exposed lingerie, sometimes on mesh pants. In terms of color, there’s a bit of everything – pink, purple, white, black, mint green, etc. This summer 2023, dare to wear a long black crochet dress with a slit to celebrate the beauty of the female body and sport a crazy style. A pair of trendy heeled sandals, a jeweled mini-bag and a smokey eye are all you need to upgrade it for evening wear. For a sharp festival look, feel free to mix colors and prints.
