Ways To Wear: The Crochet Three Way


When I was first contacted by George as Asda to choose a garment and build a few looks using it as the base piece, I immediately thought about using a Shirt Dress I'd already bought a few weeks ago. Alas, said shirt dress wasn't quite as versatile as I first assumed and therefore didn't go with any of the other clothing I'd chosen for the occasion! Luckily though, even though I didn't get many dresses with my order, I did pick up a few other items which I've managed to make work with my summer time staple - a crochet top.

I really love crochet during the summer, as it doesn't reveal too much or hug your lumps and bumps, yet still feels fresh and summery and you don't get too warm wearing it. Although I suppose tan lines could get a bit interesting in some garments eh! This simple white crochet top pretty much goes with most things and can be dressed up or down for summer days or nights. Perfect. I love the sleeve length too, as it sits just above the elbow, so doesn't get the in way and also covers those bingo wings I tend to get a little bit paranoid about when the sun first shows it's head.


For the first look I've simply thrown it over a striped skater style dress. Teamed with some flat slip on pumps it's a casual summer time look which is well, pretty easy to throw on really. The shape of this dress from Asda is so nice and is that lovely fit and flare style which is perfect for a pear shape.


Second up, we get a big boho by teaming the crochet top with a floral jumpsuit. I absolutely love this jumpsuit from George as it's just the right length for me and is something a bit different than my usual style. I'll do another post featuring it in more detail soon, but for now you can enjoy it with a bit of crochet over the top.


And finally, tucked in to my brand new culottes which I have worn non stop since I've had them, this is something I'd probably wear to work on a sunny day. These spotty culottes keep your legs cool and also cover a majority of your failed attempts as fake tan. Like with the jumpsuit, they're not something I'd usually find myself wearing, but now I've got them in my life I'm ever so pleased.

Do you love a bit of crochet?

  1. Crochet garments scare me a bit as I never know what to wear them with without looking like a doily. I love all three of these looks especially the middle one, very chic! Can't beat good ol Asda really :)

  3. Looking great! I'm looking forward to styling my three looks when I go on holiday in a few weeks. I haven't braved the crochet trend yet, but it looks great on you. I particularly like the last look - showing that crochet is definitely office appropriate and not just for the beach!
