A little bit sweet and a little bit sexy, crochet is going to be THE stand-out detail for the summer that will transition easily into Fall. Crochet is warm and inviting to the touch. I’m not a big lace person, but crochet is definitely something I can get excited about! The peek-a-boo details that show just the right amount of skin and if you plan it right, will highlight your best features, too.
