12 Chic Crochet Pieces Perfect For Summer Layering

Major summer bummer: With the temperature rising, our outfit possibilities seem to dwindle. We've got shorts, short tees, short pants, and even short skirts…you get the idea. Fortunately, no summer trend is better for adding a little texture to our wardrobes than majorly easy-breezy crochet — a breathable-knit option that acts as a layer, cover-up, or just a fun ode to boho style. Plus, trust us, these 12 pieces are not your grandmother's knits.
Instead, we've got dip-dyed, colorful, and bold iterations that are made for dashing in and out of A/C (or heading to and from the ocean). From brunch to the beach, each of these top picks add the sartorial volume that hot-weather dressing sadly forbids — all without causing you to break a sweat.
