If you haven’t already, it’s definitely time to get crafty. The trend toward all things handmade, homespun, and reminiscent of childhood has been going strong for a while now (remember last summer’s friendship bracelet craze?) This is the Summer of Crochet. Our correspondent Abbie Martin Greenbaum has curated a list of 10 of the best luxury crochet designer dresses, outfits and skirts that are perfect buys if you’re in on this top summer fashion trend.

crochet dresses and skirts are one of the big fashion trends of Summer 2022

Crochet is not just the world’s new favorite pastime – it’s also the world’s new favorite fashion trend. We are seeing the influence of craftcore all over the summer’s hottest looks, and we totally get the appeal – these crochet pieces are comfortable and easy-to-wear, and they appear relaxed and “homemade” even at their most stylish. They’re also more versatile than they initially appear – crochet can easily work at the beach, a music festival, or even someplace much more formal.  That’s part of its magic.

Of course, you may want to try crocheting yourself a skirt or dress – we will be very impressed! – but if your skills aren’t quite there yet, you can also pick one that that somebody else crocheted. Don’t worry, we won’t judge.

These looks are all fantastic, and some of them might even be lightweight enough to help get you through this heatwave. Check out our ten favorite designer crochet dresses, outfits and skirts of summer 2022.

10 designer crochet dresses and skirts that are perfect buys for this top summer fashion trend

1. Lace Crochet Dress

Woven from Italian stretch cotton, this slip-on dress from Vince is one of our favorite crochet pieces of the summer. Available in a dreamy “blue waltz” color, it comes with a straight neckline and an A-line silhouette that we know will look fabulous on whoever wears it. If you’re hoping to rock this new style before the season’s over, this dress is calling your name.

2. Crochet Coverup Mini Dress

Bring your crochet to the beach! Crochet dresses seem like an ideal choice for a coverup – they’re lightweight, they’re fun, and most importantly, they can handle getting hit with a little saltwater – and we love that Ramy Brook has gotten the message. This bright blue crochet dress has about a hundred times the flair of your average beach wrap, and when we look at it, we can hear the ocean calling our name.

3. Lily Crochet Dress

As noted in the item description for Rebecca Minkoff’s Lily Crochet Dress, this piece works as both a coverup – throw it on over your swimsuit – and a dress for brunch (perhaps with a slip underneath). Our summers are so jam-packed, that every item of clothing needs to do double duty, and that’s why we’re so grateful for the versatility of crochet. Available in both magenta and white, two fun summer shades.

4. Crochet Mini-Skirt

Don’t miss this loud, stand-out miniskirt from Simon Miller. Covered in yellow and orange sunbursts, this is the kind of skirt that feels so perfectly seasonal, it implores us to make the most of our summers. And for the full look, make sure to pair it with the matching crocheted top – the perfect ensemble for any outdoor summer event. The skirt comes with a concealed side zip closure and a slim fit.

5. Crochet Chevron Midi Skirt

This is a beautiful example of a crochet look is a little more serious – one that we would not necessarily wear to the beach. But one that we love anyway! From Tory Burch, this is a high-waisted skirt with a hem that falls right below the knee – a flattering fit, for sure. And it too comes with a matching crochet shirt, so you can be all crochet, all the time, if that’s what your heart desires.

BUY NOW – $498.

6. Women’s Petra Crochet Midi Dress

Of all the crochet dresses on this list, this one from Saint Bernard feels the most like something your Grandma might make – if your Grandma were an expert at crocheting, of course. Since craftcore is closely adjacent to Grannycore, it seems only right to include at least one such item here. Plus, this dress is so much fun. The little white flowers evoke the feeling of a fun-loving, friendly person who is enjoying every second of their summer. And we can’t wait to follow in their footsteps!

BUY NOW – $575.

7. Postcard Crochet Mini Dress

With its classic collar and button closures, this hand-crocheted shirt-style mini dress from Zimmermann evokes an air of mystery. Maybe it’s the name – “The Postcard” – but this dress makes us think of someone who has arrived here from another time; or potentially, from another planet. But a planet that’s a lot better than ours, of course. We love a dress that tells a story, and that’s exactly what this one does. And if you’d like to take the look even further, there’s also a matching hat.

8. The Alina Dress

Inspired by the aesthetics of the 60’s, this vintage-style piece from Christy Dawn puts a whole new spin on the crochet dress. With meticulous accents, long sleeves, and an inner lining, this is another look that makes us see crochet in a whole new way.  Made by a group of artisans in Lima, Peru, each piece is composed with the utmost attention to detail – and that makes us even prouder to wear it.

BUY NOW – $448.

9. Crochet Trimmed Dress

If for some reason these full-on crochet outfits are not the look for you, this dress from Miguelina is a great way to incorporate just a splash of it into your wardrobe. This bright orange belted dress comes with the lightest, loveliest accents of crocheted flowers and falcons – and who can say no to those? This dress feels like a tall, refreshing glass of orange juice, and those delicate crochet touches definitely add to its allure. We would wear this dress every day, all summer long.

BUY NOW – $775.

10. Hand-Crochet Maxi Dress

Aphrodite herself would be proud to wear this chic designer crochet outfit. From Chloe, this maxi dress is light as air – a hand-crocheted patchwork, with a scoop neckline and an A-line silhouette. This is a case where the crochet serves as the journey, rather than the destination – it creates the mesmerizing pattern that you see, but you don’t find yourself focused on the fact that it’s crochet. It reminds us of all that crochet can do, and it just happens to be one of the most stunning pieces of the summer.
