Mischa Barton in Crochet Bathing Suit

Trend Alert: Crochet Cool

You probably think crochet is best left for the elderly but think again. Mischa certainly doesn't think so. I always knew this girl was a flower child at heart and here she is looking crochet cool while frolicking in the warm sands of Malibu. You don't have to be beach-side to sport this trend. These vintage-inspired confections easily translate into a whimsical top or dress; just remember to play it cool.

i remember seeing Paris Hilton in a bathing suit almost exactly like that one last year, after she got out of jail, and it looked better on her. This doesn't flatter Mischa at all.

I love that F21 top! But I love anything in yellow :)

Not feeling Mischa's suit, but I don't mind crochet as a subtle accent on some pieces of clothing. Sometimes it's cute, sometimes it's too much like a doily for my taste. I tried on that Aqua dress the last time I was at Bloomie's and liked it a lot. I also think the Urban Outfitters flutter-sleeve cami is pretty.

I own that suit from Urban Outfitters, it is really no good at all. The lining is weird and bulky and way too noticeable. Just a warning for y'all!

Yea, Mischa looks awesome. Fab I'm glad to see someone else's love of crochet. I literally went crazy at Forever 21 yesterday when I saw a pair of crochet tights, but almost everything in there was.They had crochet tops,dresses,bags,there was a lot of it!

I crochet myself but I don't think I would wear any type of crochet garment.
