30 Crochet Bags to Help You Embrace a Craftcore Summer

Look, it’s normal to run out of time for recreation this summer. You’re busy booking a vacation and heading to the beach, which may not leave you enough time to take up your knitting, piano playing, or crocheting (no problem, there’s always the fall). But just because you’re too eager to participate doesn’t mean you can’t adopt the craftcore look. Crochet bags are the perfect choice for warm weather. They are lightweight and tend to come in playful colors and natural materials like cotton and raffia.

While crocheting may be a hobby most associated with past generations, even if you don’t consider yourself a fan of the coastal grandma look, you can embrace the breathable weave of crochet. Minimalist options in small and large iterations are just as available as their bolder counterparts. Either way, surely the perfect way to style a crochet bag is with a simple warm weather look like cut-offs and a tank top, or maybe with a breezy white dress. Ahead, find five versions of the crochet bag trend that deserve a place in your summer purse.
