This Summer, Nothing Is Cuter Than Crochet

Candice Swanepoel

If there was ever a time for the crochet bikini, it’s now. The good ol’ classic yarn has that folky-retro feel perfect for those sun-basking days of summer. And though the idea of knitted swimwear may sound dated, the crafty piece isn’t like your grandmother’s doily: Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel wore a skimpy crochet bikini to show off her baby bump; Jane Birkin donned crochet tops as cover-ups (as well as a décolletage-diving crochet dress for a night on the town in the South of France); and Cali girl Cher made a case for the semi-see-through yarn as a tank top and a macramé headpiece. So why not give your swimwear a throwback update? Maybe it’s a cream bikini set, or if you’re looking for more après-ocean attire, there’s a miniskirt or robe dress for that. And don’t skimp on colors: You can weave plenty of bright hues into your saltwater ensembles. Not a bad way to put a spin on your swim look.
