STYLE

It’s time to mix up your wardrobe with some new pieces for the season. Our favorite of the moment? Crochet. Code Dressed is also crushing on this trend and shows us how to style it for any occasion.

I love the months of April and May with the last touches of spring paving the way for summer. Especially with daylight savings now out of the picture, I love the longer days where you can get off from a hard day at work and still catch a good hour of the golden goodness of the sun. These months also bring with them a slew of garden and pool party invites, and of course wedding season. There’s always a lot of places to go, and tons of beautiful backdrops one finds themselves in. And in such great weather, why would you ever decline?

Summer and spring give you a lot of scope to experiment with your styles – I personally like to mix it up with some classics but also add some new styles to spice up my wardrobe for this fun season. One key piece for me right now is crochet. At first thought, crochet looks elaborate but with the right choices, you can play with it enough to make it a key part of your spring-summer wardrobe. When you think of summer styles, florals come quickly to mind but give crochet a chance, it’s more versatile than you might think.

A crocheted skirt or dress can be a staple piece in putting together an easy, breezy, chic outfit for any occasion – you name it. At a pool party where you aren’t even getting in the water? A simple white crocheted lace top with denim shorts or jeans does the trick. A dinner date? Pick up a dusty rose crochet number. Brunch with your girlfriend? Wear a white crocheted skirt combined with a floral blouse.

For my look, I went with a black top and the most swoon-worthy pencil skirt to wear to a birthday dinner of one of my dear friends. The work on both the top and the skirt is intricate yet has a certain nonchalance to it. The construction of both the pieces are so good that they hug your body in all the right places hiding any imperfections. There is also something about the length of the skirt and sleeves of the top that when they come together they deliver a very flattering feminine silhouette. With both pieces lined perfectly, and you can just throw them on for an effortlessly chic look. Paired with a low block heeled sandal and blush colored earrings, I was ready to go.”
