Remember that crochet scarf your Grandma made you? You might just want to dig that beauty back out, because Grandma knew what she was doing!

Crochet is not only trendy but incredibly versatile - easily worn during any season.

From dresses to handbags, this latest in a run of quirky SS18 trends has been popularised by DIY websites, utilised by designers on the show Project Runaway and, of course, recently wore by many celebrities.

Here’s some of the most stylish-yet-affordable pieces on the high street right now. Go on - when has Grandma ever been wrong?

Forever21, Crochet Mid-rise Jeans, £27.00 £16.20  

Why not give your basic jeans a little twist and make them less boring and more fashionable? Change your ripped jeans for some crochet and you will rock this trend.

There are so many cool outfits you can put together with these! 

H&M, White Crochet Longline Bikini, £40.00

Yes, crochet bikinis are a thing and they are everywhere this season.

This piece from H&M shows that you don’t need a multicoloured pattern to stand out - sometimes simplicity says it all.

Pull&Bear, Striped Crochet Cardigan With Hood, £29.99 £19.99

Summer is here but not to stay, so you might want to invest in some warmer pieces like this one for the fall.

The horizontal and vertical stripes, the bagginess and Autumn colours make this crochet cardigan a must-have as we ease into those slightly cooler days. 

Accessorize, Crochet Trilby Hat, £22.00

Alright, this is a crochet classic that appears every summer. It screams sea, salt and sandy feet, making it the perfect accessory for your next vacation.

The colourful mirrored trim around it makes it different from most one-colour rim hats available.

Boohoo, Boutique All Over Crochet Playsuit, £13.00

Crochet might not scream summer festival, but this playsuit proves that you can wear crochet for more playful occasions!

Summer asks for gaudy colours and patterns, but black will always be the new black. Here’s to an elegant evening in the city.

Mango, Crochet Top, £29.99

Crochet tops are everywhere- usually either white or in bright colours.

That's why this sleeveless top from Mango, with darker shades of black, wine red, pink and white stands out. Its lozenge-shaped design is a breath of fresh air. 

Dorothy Perkins, Beige Crochet Choker, £5.00

Accessories are as important as clothes when it comes to planning the right outfit.

The choker trend is still on, so if you're a fan (I would say most people are), why not test out two exciting trends in one piece?

River Island, Pink Crochet Midi Skirt, £75.00

Can never go too wrong with pink, nor with crochet. Doesn’t this skirt make you think of the heated atmosphere of Havana, Cuba?

Now if we join the Latin American vibes of this piece with a classical pale colour that accentuates your curves- perfect.

ASOS, Parklane, Crochet Tie Leg Sandals, £12.00

Let's not forget our feet. Yes, there are crochet shoes too, and they are SO pretty.

When it comes to picking shoes, it is important to choose versatile colours that we can conjugate with most of our closet and… COMFORT. These crochet sandals have both.

Zara, Multi-Coloured Crochet Dress, £69.99

Finishing off with a dress that has the colour, the design and the attitude to make every woman feel powerful in it.

See how versatile crochet can be? And you can give it a little twist yourself when deciding what piece to wear beneath it!
