THE CROCHET LOOK IS HAPPENING |  truefashionistas | Women’s Fashion and Clothing

We’re so excited for the True Fashionista crochet trend that’s happening for fall!  Crocheted clothing has been popping up everywhere, including at True Fashionistas, Naples’ best consignment store, and for good reason. A few of the trendsetters who are leading crochet’s comeback include celebrities Kim and Khloe Kardashian, rapper Saweetie and designers such as Diane von Furstenburg and Christian Dior.  

THE CROCHET LOOK IS HAPPENING IN TRENDS  

Crochet was all over February Fashion Weeks from New York City to London. Designers such as Ralph Lauren, Marco Rimbaldi and Jonathan Simkhai showcased exciting crochet outfits in several new presentations.  

True Fashionista crochet clothing and handbags are stylish and functional. From complete outfits to purses. We love how it gives a unique touch to any ensemble and has an edge of dainty classiness.  

This season we see crochet used as a prop to complement other fashion trends such as animal prints. The best part is that many of these styles are easy on your wallet as well. Browse the satisfyingly discounted collection of crocheted clothing at the area’s best designer consignment store, True Fashionistas.  

THE CROCHET LOOK IS HAPPENING IN HEAD TO TOE 

Crochet is trending in a big way on the runway for designers such as Christian Dior and Valentino, among others. This trend is a must-try in 2021 because it’s so versatile! The Free People Crochet Suit takes the guesswork out of matching your crochet piece with something else. Free People dresses you head to toe in a gorgeous two-piece pantsuit featuring a beautiful collection of colors in their trademark bohemian style. 

Top it off with Tory Burch Wedge Sandals, and there’s your next crochet trend outfit. Another way to complete the look is with a pair of gorgeous, True Fashionista crochet shoes from Bass. We love that they’re comfortable enough to wear all day and still stylish as well! 

THE CROCHET LOOK IS HAPPENING IN HEADWEAR 

A Kate Spade crochet bucket hat? Yes!  The versatile look is a perfect way to shield your face from the sun with style. The cap can be worn in three ways: slouchy or low on the head, fitted and pulled down over one eye for an evening out at the movies, or folded up like a beanie for colder days.  

Consider going eco-conscious as well with Detroit native up-and-comer Anna Sui. Her recycled crochet bucket hats incorporate sparkling water cans sliced lengthwise in several enticing and colorful flavors, er, colors.  

THE CROCHET LOOK IS HAPPENING IN HANDBAGS 

Crochet bags are prominent on the runway and in street style. The trend is showing no signs of slowing down, with designers like Michael Kors introducing new looks for 2021 that showcase this craftsmanship. Designs ranging from traditional totes that can be worn crossbody or messenger bag style to clutches made from recycled materials such as plastic bottles are also hot this fall. Bottega Veneta is all about the crochet with their green crochet shoulder bag.  

There’s something about a crochet bag that screams shoulder bag. This way, you’ll always have your hands free! From Caterina Bertini’s Natural Bucket bag to The Sak’s round 120 Hobo shoulder bag, you’ll be feeling the fall wave and sipping a pumpkin latte as you stroll the streets of (insert fave big city here) in no time.

THE CROCHET LOOK IS HAPPENING -THE HISTORY 

The art of crocheting can be traced back to the 1500s when it was used in clothing or blankets quickly made for wartime purposes. Today’s designers have taken this tradition one step further by using yarn instead of thread to create garments that range from comfortable sweaters to trendy outfits such as skirts and dresses.   

Fashion-history.com shares textile scholar Lis Paludan’s extensive research into the origins of True Fashionista crochet use in Europe. Although she has been unable to document its practice before the early 1800s, somehow, crocheted clothing from India, Pakistan, and Guatemala have shown up in museums and private collections. 

Crochet began its True Fashionista domination as an activity de jour in women’s circles during the latter nineteenth century. By the 1960s and ’70s, fiber artists realized that by free-form crocheting rather than working in rows and building up three-dimensional forms from the fabric's surface, they could produce elaborate yet wearable designs.
