Crochet is everywhere this summer, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

The loose-knit look has a hippie vibe that’s a super fun throwback and is ideal for the hottest months of the year when you want to show a little skin. We’re obviously seeing tons of crochet in swim coverups, but the trend has also found its way to everyday clothes, swimsuits, accessories and more. Keep scrolling for the items we’re coveting most. 

1. Princess Polly Leah Knit Set, $57

We love a good set, and this one is absolutely perfect for summer. The long-sleeved crop top and shorts work together or separately. Neither are lined, so they’re great as beach coverups, and the top can also be layered over a cami. The flared sleeves are just a little bit long, with scalloped trim that adds to the boho aesthetic. Snag the set in this white or one of the five other colors and prints.

2. My Beachy Side Crochet Bikini $125

This bright bikini is what we imagine grandma would crochet for The Little Mermaid, and we’re totally into it. Its bra cups give seashell vibes, and the string detailing on top and bottom has the feel of sea anemones. Tiny beads scattered throughout add just a hint of dewiness and shine. The ties on the bottom are just decorative, while the ones on top let you easily adjust to fit your unique figure.

3. Cupshe Crochet Mini Cover-Up Dress, $29.99

The elasticized waist of this little dress gives it a flattering blouse silhouette as well as a much more fitted shape than you usually get with a cover-up. We also love the thick cami straps and flirty deep v-necklines in front and back. Layer the cover-up over a nude slip, and it’ll do double duty as an everyday summer dress. Besides this apricot hue, it’s also available in a super clean white.

4. H&M Crochet-Look Pants, $29.99

These breezy pants have a patterned crochet so loose that it gives them an almost lacy look, though lining at the waist and upper thighs means you can wear them as actual pants. They’re a great option on sticky summer days for those of us who don’t love going out in shorts. We’re also into the relaxed fit, which is comfortable while still looking polished. 

5. Band of the Free Aquara Crochet Slide Sandal, $79

No need to limit crochet to your clothes! These unique slides extend the trend all the way down to your toes. The bright detailing is hand-crocheted onto leather straps that will keep your feet comfortable and supported. Wear them with cutoffs, jeans or a flirty sundress to bring beachy vibes wherever you go this summer.

6. Abercrombie & Fitch Crochet Scoopneck Tank, $50

Crochet looks great in nude shades, but if you’re looking for something outside of the more traditional tones, try this eye-catching lime tank. It has a slim silhouette that hits right at the waist—the ideal length for wearing loose or tucking into high-rise bottoms. The super soft sweater knit will keep you feeling cozy even in the middle of summer (And if you really do prefer nudes, no worries. The tank comes in white, too).

7. Offline by Aerie Crochet Short, $39.95

We’ll be keeping these little shorts in our beach bags all summer long. They’re absolutely perfect for tossing over your suit after a long day out in the heat. The crochet fabric is light and comfortable, which is exactly what we want when we’re feeling sun-kissed and a little sleepy. Get them in this version if you like a pop of color or the navy and tan stripes if you prefer something more muted. We’ll also be snagging the coordinating cropped hoodie, of course.
