Crochet cool: update your #WFH wardrobe with on-trend crochet pieces

Traditional crochet gets a sexy urban update for the new season 


Crochet is one of those divisive fabrics. For some, it conjures up images of Ibiza bohemia and sun-dappled decadence. For others, it brings back memories of twee doilies and baby blankets.

If you’re in the former group, you’re in luck. Crochet was all over the catwalk for SS20 and IMAGE contributing fashion editor, Marie Kelly, has picked out some of her favourite pieces.
