How to wear a Crochet Dress

One of the cutest trends to emerge this summer are crochet dresses! I’m sharing how to wear a crochet dress as well as some great crochet pieces from Revolve that will take you from the beach to date night with ease.

Crochet is a great fabric to wear in summertime, it’s breezy, easy to care for and can be thrown on over a swimsuit or layered under warmer pieces for a multitude of looks. If you’re thinking how to wear a crochet dress – don’t fret. You can’t go wrong with pairing a crochet dress with simple gold and pearl jewelry, flat sandals and a crossbody or straw bag. Throw on a pair of bold sunnies and you’re good to go!

I wore this LPA Crochet Annalise dress gifted from Revolve with a pair of Steve Madden leather sandals, a pearl initial necklace, and a Louis Vuitton vanity case bag. I love how the black handbag and sunglasses add some contrast to the bohemian, easygoing vibe of the crochet dress. The LPA Annalise dress is so good, it is currently sold out. Keep an eye out here to see if it comes back in stock or to request a special order! I love how the skirt is full, the dress itself is heavier weight, and that you can wear this crochet dress with a strapless bra too!

How to wear a crochet dress: where to wear it

Now that we’re in the middle of a heatwave, wearing a crochet dress to the beach is a wonderful idea! Of course, this LPA crochet dress can easily be worn to brunch or a patio dinner date too.

Crochet dresses are also great for travel because they don’t wrinkle easily and you don’t need to iron them! I can totally see wearing this crochet dress on a getaway to the Mediterranean or Caribbean to keep cool on long summer days.

You can also look into some of the separates I’ve linked below that are perfect to wear with denim, or thrown on top of a bikini for a carefree summer vibe.
