Calling all coconut girls! Knitwear has taken over our summer fashion radar, and we're here for it. Whether you take your knit in the form of a midi dress or a crop top, in the hottest months of the year, the airy, open-knit fabric is your best bet for looking hot while staying cool. From Dua Lipa and Kourtney Kardashian’s crochet bikinis to Bella Hadid’s knit arm warmers, we’re loving any and every variation of the knitwear trend. The latest It girl to sport the style is TikTok star Devon Lee Carlson.

Devon posted a series of pics on Instagram wearing a red knit maxi dress in Lake Como, Italy where she’s currently serving European girl summer realness at a friend’s wedding. The Wildflower Cases mogul kept it classy yet sexy with the halter neck dress which features an open-knit, torso-baring panel and backless silhouette with a side of underboob.

Going along with the fiery theme, Devon paired the floor-length dress with a tiny bucket bag made of the same red knit fabric, complete with matching fuzzy trim. Fittingly for a scorchingly hot Italian July, the model and phone case designer wore her hair up in a sleek top knot.

Like her bestie and fellow vintage queen Bella Hadid, Devon is known for her ‘90s and y2k-inspired looks, from low-rise micro mini skirts to butterfly tops, and her latest knit look is no exception.

While Devon’s dress hails from 2021, its designer, GiGi Hunter, who specializes in handmade knitwear, is responsible for carrying the knitwear trend throughout Hollywood in the ‘90s and early 2000s. GiGi has created iconic looks for our favs, including Beyoncé, Zendaya, JLo (excuse us, Jennifer Affleck that is), and Jada Pinkett Smith. All of Gigi's designs feature the signature curve-hugging silhouette and skin-baring details that we love about Devon’s dress.
