Today's Everyday Fashion: Crochet Tops

Inspiration: People


I'm a huge fan of bright colors, but when I do go neutral, I love picking pieces with fun textures like lace and crochet. I first wore this top with distressed denim (here), and was excited to try it with a white blazer, baby blue skinnies and black pumps based on my celebrity inspiration photo. A simple combo, but I never would've thought to put it together! Are crochet tops a trend you will be trying?

  4. I remember when you wore this top a little while ago and I fell in love with it. It's gorgeous and you just made me remember how much I want it!

  5. I am SO loving the lace/crochet look right now! I seriously, can't get enough of it! This is definitely an outfit I can see myself wearing.

  6. I am not a fan. Your outfit looks cute but over the last few weeks I have been seeing this trend in the real world and it just looks messy. I don't know if "real" women don't think about the styling or they just don't care. And I HATE the crochet shorts! They are everywhere and look like ripped up toilet paper. I'll be passing on this trend.

  7. Oh, I'm totally digging this style. I have 2 tanktops like this: in white and brown. I also love using them to add texture. Just got into the colored skinny trend & looking forward to recreating this look. I'll probably go for a cardigan rather than a blazer as my work is very (veryyyyy) casual.

  17. I love it, but with nude pumps. Black is a little harsh. Or even those blush platforms you have.

  18. I bought this one from Forever21 - http://canada.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=LOVE21&Category=love21_knittops&ProductID=2040205282&VariantID= It's a really versatile piece! I first wore it with a pseudo-chanel-style blazer, but I have a lot of other plans for it.

  19. Such a *b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l.* blue-and-white outfit!! I love your clear crystal and goldtone drop earrings with your white crochet lace top: wearing crystal jewelry with crochet lace pieces just seems to give............ such an *opulent, yet still very delicate and light* look to your (total) outfit, J. ............ e.g., like two *sparkling* Chandelier Lead Crystal Candleholders on a fine, White Lace Tablecloth in a *5-Star* Restaurant!!

  24. Love this whole outfit. You look so cute! I was looking at Lily and Violet's web page. I can't find a size guide on it. Do you think this top runs true to size?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think this top is a junior's fit, and it buttons up the back, so if you are between sizes I would go up!
