We’re Making Crochet Cool Again

We’re Making Crochet Cool Again

With the comeback of 70’s fashion, sustainable clothing and colorful prints, it’s safe to say that crochet is the perfect fashion trend (and activity) for the summer season. Reclaimed on social media during the Covid-19 pandemic, crocheting was officially deemed a fashion trend by Gen Z, no longer ‘the activity’ exclusively reserved for grandma. Designers, like Saint Laurent, Bergdorf Goodman and Dolce & Gabbana, as well as small business owners on Etsy, Instagram, and Depop have hopped on the trending crochet bandwagon. From crochet bikinis to handbags to dresses and hats, combined with traditional techniques and fresh new styles, we’re here to show you some of our favorite crochet pieces!

HATS, HATS & MORE HATS! 

If there’s one thing the crochet revolution brought about it was the comeback of the crochet hat. Emily Dawn Long, influencer and former celebrity stylist, introduced her Wanda crochet hat on Instagram only a few weeks before the pandemic mandates officially went into effect. The hat, which comes in many colors and can be molded and reshaped to fit different styles, became especially popular among Gen Z for its vintage 90’s feel. 

Since then, the crochet hat design has been redesigned and styled by countless designers and social media creators. Thanks to popular celebrities and influencers like Hailey Bieber, Dominic Fike, Suede Brooks and Amelie Zilber, the craze surrounding the crochet hat only increased. 

Although we are loving these celebrity adorned crochet hats, you don’t have to pay hundreds for a cute and colorful crochet hat of your own. Many artists have started selling their designs on Depop, which come in different colors, sizes and designs!
