Handmade designs are having a big moment in fashion right now. However, crocheted shirts, which our grannies used to make using crochet hooks through interlocking loops of yarn, are enjoying a major resurgence in 2022.
Designers and high-fashion labels have reinvented this ancient technique, using it to create clothing—sweaters, shirts, vests, hats, and pants—that cater to millennial sensibilities.
Influencers and celebrities who understand fashion trends love to wear this see-through ’70s aesthetic.
The latest celebrity to nail the trend is none other than Gen-Z style icon Rohit Saraf.
The 25-year-old charmer who’s busy promoting his upcoming film Vikram Vedha donned a black crocheted shirt on a recent promotional outing.
Contrasting with the popular street style aesthetic of crocheted clothing, Rohit has given it a smart-casual twist.
He styled the shirt with wine colored formal trousers and a pair of classic chunky black derbies.
If you look at it from a layman’s point of view, the view would be described as simple. A black shirt with pants and formal shoes, that’s all, but if you throw in a fashion person’s perspective, you would realize that the detail is in the fabric, the silhouette, and the choice of colors and how something considered casual has been incorporated into building a keen eye.
If you’re in your twenties and looking for inspiration to dress clean and stylish, this is the look for you.
Vikram Vedha is a remake of the Tamil film of the same name, starring Southern superstars R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy. In the Bollywood remake, Hrithik Roshan will play the role of a feared gangster while Saif Ali Khan will play a cop.
Rohit will play the role of Hrithik’s younger brother in the film.
The action thriller hits theaters on September 30, 2022.
