The flame has been rekindled in the last month. When it's too hot to wear what you want to wear, and shopping for fall seems pointless because it will sit in your closet for months, I've turned to crocheting as a way to pass the time. It's one of the few knits that can be worn all year round because of its ability to be layered and its sweater-like qualities—even if it's a tank or tube top. Right now, a crochet tube top and shorts are perfect, but once the fall weather arrives, you can layer that tube top over a button-down or turtleneck to update the aesthetic.

Crochet Styling Ideas 

Do you need some inspiration for your fashion needs during this challenging time? Let's style the perfect summer-to-fall item: crochet.

Crochet Top and Button-Down

An easy way to dress up a button-down shirt is to layer a tank or tube top over it. My favorite thing about crochet is that it allows you to see the shirt underneath the open knitting. This look calls for a shirt with no pockets (pockets will obstruct the tube top and cause it to bulge), some weight, and a loose fit. You can achieve the "wings" look by leaving the bottom buttons undone and tugging the hem on either side of the crochet top's bottom band—like it's you have shirt wings.

Crochet Tank Top and Turtleneck

Pairing a crochet tank with a turtleneck is another option for layering. The tank tops are sheer and translucent on their own, but when worn together, they create a more opaque appearance. The tank's boxy shape looks great paired with a tight, second-skin turtleneck. It's no longer acceptable to wear crochet in the summertime when paired with a pair of jeans.

Blazer with Boxy Fit and Crochet Tank

In the fall and winter, I find it difficult to transition from summer to winter attire, so blazers are a must for me. To avoid looking too summery because of its knit nature, you can wear crochet now with shorts, but you can also wear it in the fall with an overcoat for work. Try a boxy, oversized blazer over a delicate crochet tank and baggy jeans or shorts for an effortlessly put-together look.

Crochet with a Denim Tux

To me, crocheting with denim rings screams "festival wear," but that's not how we're going to wear it here. Depending on the shoes, this denim tux and neutral crochet tank outfit is both casual and sharp-looking. I will choose loafers for this look, but heels would be quite a look, too.

Crochet Bodysuit/Swimsuit and Jeans

If you're having a hard time transitioning from one season to the next, you may want to consider avoiding it altogether. Even though I'm joking, I'll still suggest you wear a crochet bathing suit. One-piece crochet swimsuits like this one would be perfect for dancing (or whatever else we're allowed to do) all fall, paired with a pair of platform shoes. Summer's euphoria will continue to inspire you.

Crochet Cardigan and a Skirt

A skirt instantly transforms a granny-esque cardigan into a youthful and fun piece of clothing. When summer ends, tennis skirts don't have to go out of style. I plan to purchase a black tennis skirt that will look great with a black murky tight. Crochet cardigans can be worn over turtlenecks in the winter as well as late summer and fall layering pieces.

Pants with a Crochet Dress Overhead

Crochet dress over pants is a trend you'll want to keep seeing. There should be more room in your legs for the dress, so I prefer straight leg pants. To complete the look, wear a trench coat.
