This is the dress trend you’re about to see everywhere this summer

Quick Overview

If you’re in the process of adding a few new items to your summer wardrobe, there’s one trend you need to consider, and it’s the crochet dress. You’re going to see crochet everywhere this summer, from the beach to brunch to the bars. But don’t get it twisted — this isn’t your grandmother’s crochet.

You may think of a crochet dress as more of a swimsuit coverup, and there are plenty of those out there. However, designers like Zimmermann, STAUD, Simkhai and Retrofēte are leading the way with fully lined, crochet dresses you can wear anywhere. Of course, a lot of those higher end brands offer them at pretty high prices. Luckily, you don’t have to look very hard to find more affordable options.

Lulus has so many crochet dress options (Alix Earle was just seen wearing one of them on her girls’ trip to Santorini). Check out a couple of great options from the retailer below, plus a few others that will totally give you that “I just stepped off the beach, and I look effortlessly cool” vibe. You can pair any of these with a shimmery body oil and your favorite vacation sandals.

Available in four colors.
$80 at GAP

This mini crochet dress is completely lined, so you don’t have to worry about showing any extra skin if you don’t want to. It comes in off-white, black, rainbow stripe and a blue and green stripe. It looks great with heeled sandals and a sparkly handbag for dinner or sneakers and a bucket hat for a summer concert. For the perfect length, you can choose between “regular,” petite and tall sizes.

This dress is unlined, so you can wear it with your swimsuit or a bodysuit.
$188 at Nordstrom

This crochet dress is labeled as a swim coverup, so you could wear it to the beach over your favorite Beach Riot bikini. However, you could also wear it over a slip or a bodysuit to give it a little more coverage to wear to brunch, lunch, dinner and more.

This crochet midi dress has a pretty knit pattern from head to toe and features tie straps at the top of the shoulders. It’s lined nearly all the way down — just a little bit at the hem is not, so you can really see the knit details. You can get it in black or white (or get both) from Lulus.

Yes, you can make crochet sexy, and this dress is proof. While it’s fully lined, it has cutouts at the sides and back and an O-ring detail at the chest. This may just become your new favorite “going out” summer dress. (It also comes in black, if that’s more your style.)

Add this crochet halter dress to your closet, and you’ll get tons of wear out of it this summer. Slip it on with a pair of flip-flops, and you’re good to go — you’ll look effortlessly put together. It comes in hot pink, cream and black, as well as petite, tall and plus sizes.
