No longer limited to resort-wear, crochet pieces have found their way into our everyday wardrobe, in the form of crafty and comfortable sweaters, textured pants, and eye-catching bags. While they often get associated with items in Grandma's closet, today's crochet separates are far from boring as designers have given them a modern twist.
From Altuzarra's crochet-trimmed suits to Gabriela Hearst's multicored dresses and artisanal sets, the spring 2022 runway presented an array of imaginative crochet outfits with year-round wearability. These iterations exuded easy elegance while looking deliciously comfortable. Plus, their day-to-night appeal is undeniable — making the case for crochet pieces earning a permanent spot in our closets.

Consider layering it over a classic button-down for a touch of playfulness. And where does a go-to crochet dress fit into all of this? If you're feeling brave, wear it over pants and a shirt for extra warmth. Scroll on to get a clear picture of these styling tips, and find the pieces that will help you achieve the looks.
