Too often, crochet is associated with that of the decorative little doilies on the back of grandma’s couch. And while that may be the case for some of us, let’s hope it’s the exception rather than the rule. This summer, there is no knit more noteworthy than that of crochet as demonstrated by these three darlings. Whether you are an uptown girl, downtown diva, or just happen to be hanging around, there is a look for you.

With the arrival of summer comes the arrival of outdoor music festivals. The first of which to kick things off is Coachella. Coachella is not only one of the bigger music festivals, it’s one of the most photographed. Let’s just say it’s a sartorialist’s wet dream. The look is usually a bit boho meets Beverly Hills, but some have taken the hippy dippy look to extremes. I can’t say I’ve ever had the desire to camp out for three days with no working plumbing, but if you happen to be someone who favors the port-o-potty over pate, then perhaps you’re headed out that way this weekend. If that’s the case, you may be thinking, “What to wear? What to wear?” Well, I’ve come up with three looks that are sure to have you looking like you’re with the band.
