The biggest dress trend for summer 2024? One that arguably has never gone out of style: the crochet dress.

For a carefree, free-spirited season, fashion houses and labels have been leaning toward a bohemian style that takes us straight back to the ‘70s. But just like the crochet skirt, they’ve elevated the dress version for modern times, opting for sleek silhouettes with interesting cutouts and patterns. The result: Crochet dresses have become an essential item for any wardrobe.

Dress trends: How to wear crochet in summer 2024

We’ve done away with the overly prim crochet in 2024. Instead, opt for the minimalist variations seen on the catwalks and in stores as of late. Look for crochet dresses in sleek, curve-hugging silhouettes, natural hues, or with unexpected cutouts and prints.

For inspiration, look to the immaculate crochet dresses at Maje and Sandro or Marine Serre’s patchwork version. There’s also the sunset style at Oscar de la Renta, and a baby blue crochet dress at Ganni. Meanwhile, La Double J went for a sixties effect with a modern twist.

Whatever version you choose, style with minimalist accessories like the newly trending ring sandals, a little tube bag, or an oversized blazer. This will keep the look squarely in 2024, rather than appearing like a ‘70s costume cosplay. It’s the perfect balance of work and play.
