From tops to bags to swimsuits, crochet is the top trend for summer 2022


Crochet is the bohemian chic trend gaining momentum in summer 2022.

From Boomers to Generations Z and Y, crochet is gaining more and more fans around the world and is becoming one of the top must-watch trends as we head into this year’s holiday season. From tops and shorts to skirts, dresses, shoes and accessories, this traditional technique – well known to our ancestors – is making its way back into women’s wardrobes and onto social media this year.

What would summer be without crocheting? From the onset of the pandemic and the rise of all things DIY, crochet has been gaining converts—young and old—to new callings on social media. And those who are less skilled with their hands no longer hesitate to turn to specialty stores as well as big fashion brands or even luxury houses to find “THE” crochet piece that will make the difference on the beach.

Considered by some to be the chicest style of the moment, crochet really is this summer’s top trend – something that many celebrities have been anticipating at the very popular – and no less trendy – Coachella festival.

If bohemian chic hasn’t really found its place at this year’s California Festival, attended by various celebrities over two weekends, crochet has clearly found its way to the desert event. Influencers and models like Leonie Hanne and Gizele Oliveira or stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Laura New all appeared in crocheted outfits, with a focus on flower-covered tops, skirts, swimsuits and even bags adorned with messages, slogans and brand names .

In its latest Summer Dresses report, fashion search engine Stylight* confirms this trend, noting that raffia and crochet bags have fallen by 1 , compared to the same period last year. And it’s not just crochet accessories that are attracting attention, as crochet ensembles have also gained traction in recent weeks, with a 33% increase in search interest on Google. And it’s clear that the trend is set to continue with the (massive) influx of crochet swimsuits as the summer months draw closer.

Stylight, which looked at the top ten trends for summer 2022, also reveals that orange and brown are among the colors that are buzzing the most this season, while zebra and tiger prints are a hit in terms of patterns. When it comes to accessories, platform shoes dominate as soon as the sun shines, whether in the form of sandals or elegant shoes. And given the younger generation’s love of all things ’90s and 2000s, the colorful micro-pearl necklaces that were popular during those two decades will also be making a comeback.
