The best crochet dresses are simple outfit solutions on a hot summer day. Comfortable and breathable, these garments are made by interlocking loops of thread or thread, using a hook. This technique is done by hand, allowing designers to create truly unique pieces that can be treasured for years to come. Since the process can be so intricate and laborious, today’s crochet dresses should be viewed as investment pieces, focusing on the artistry, craftsmanship and care they require, rather just a passing trend.

On the Spring 2022 catwalks, crochet made a statement in the form of super special statement dresses. A hand-crocheted white tank dress at Chloé, featuring a patchwork design of organic shapes, was styled with matching crochet accessories, including a knit bag and slide sandals. At Jacquemus, there was a stunning long-sleeved maxi dress, dripping with pearl ball embellishments, and Staud also played with technique, with lemon-shaped appliqués on a cool fishnet dress, with a simple one piece swimsuit looking through.

If you’re not picking something up on the trail right away, there are plenty of contemporary options as well. Show off a little leg with a range of minis like Gimaguas’ backless dresses to quirky and colorful ’60s quirky shapes like Farm Rio’s. Or play with proportions with a long maxi that offers a bit of intrigue, due to its slightly transparent nature, like Cult Gaia and Savannah Morrow. Whatever your preference, the best crochet dresses will take you from poolside to evening cocktail parties in a snap, and everything in between.
