What shoes to wear with the 70s inspired Crochet Dress

Crochet dresses are not a new fashion trend, in fact, you can probably find some really great vintage versions in your favorite thrift store in the 70s section, or in any department store in the year 2023.  This is a look that continues to inspire us to add knitwear to our wardrobes.  This type of dress also allows you to explore many different designer shoes to complement this trendy look.

Crochet dresses come in several different versions, starting with a body hugging, see-through, fringe bottom dress.  These can typically be found on the beach and are used as a coverup; however, for the more daring, this dress can easily transition from seaside to night club.  The easiest way to make this transition is a simple change of footwear.  On the beach you will find yourself either barefoot or in a flat, easy strappy sandal in a neutral black or brown Italian leather.  Or if your crochet dress has you dancing into the late hours, opt instead for a pair of heels with an open toe.

Granny squares is a crochet technique that is all the rage.  However, this style can leave you feeling a bit exposed, so it’s best to try on this crochet dress first to ensure  you feel comfortable while showing a bit more skin.  Or another option is to purchase a piece of shapewear to wear underneath for additional coverage and support.  This 70s crochet pattern lends itself to a cute pair of platform sandals for a pop of color and comfort.

One person who has made crochet outfits tres chic is no other than the grandchild of Vice President Kamala Harris, Ella Emhoff.  Not only does she walk the runway she also creates some of the most colorful and trendsetting knitwear sets under her eponymous brand.  This Summer you will find knitwear accessories, such as the ones created by Ella Emhoff, in various styles including bucket hats, crochet bags and colorful granny square belts.  Crochet outfits and accessories are both on-trend and stylish additions for your Summer wardrobe.

A cute crochet shorts and crop top set is a great festival look and pairs well with denim shorts, ankle boots, or just wear the top with some flared jeans for an entirely new look that is comfortable and boho chic.  Crochet halter tops are another option which can be worn alone or over a swimsuit top.  Crochet is perfect for Summer because it’s a breathable, lightweight, vented treatment that is both cool and comfortable in the Summer sun.  

Crochet is also a great hobby that could allow you to make your own creation with just a simple pattern, fun yarn and a crochet hook.  Don’t be afraid to try your hand at making your own dress or accessories, because you might surprise yourself.  This is a trend that will always be in style and what better way to show it off than in a design by you.  Good luck with accessorizing your next crochet look.
