The expression ‘what goes around comes around' is very applicable to fashion, as you can see for yourself. High-waist skirts, boyfriend’s shirts, dark lipstick, and wide-brimmed hats have all made a comeback after decades of being out of style. To the immense happiness of all Boho style lovers out there, another 70’s trend is once again hot in the streets (or should we say – beaches). Crochet swimsuits have taken over the beaches and vintage-loving girls from all over the world are excitedly waiting to show their lovely pieces to the world.

Boho & gypsy

Some say that boho and gypsy styles are not just about fashion, but they refer to a certain lifestyle as well. Nothing says ’freedom’ and ‘free spirit’ like comfortable, unconventional clothes. Lace shirts and skirts, flowy materials, layers, open back, and bare feet. It is only natural for this culture to accept almost forgotten style of crochet swimsuits and turn it into a fashion statement. Wide brimmed hats, crochet barefoot sandals, numerous necklaces and rings, light makeup and braided hair – set your inner hippie free and enjoy the summer.

How to wear a crochet bikini

The best combination is with a crochet dress and some barefoot sandals. If you find the right model (or make it), choose a bandeau style which is finished with lace, fringe, or a solid crochet and which can be worn like a shirt. Wear it glamorously with a pair of jeans for a night out at the club or with a gypsy skirt or shorts for a more casual look when hanging out with your friends by the beach or the pool.

DIY swimsuit

Maybe you’ve seen something you liked on a photo, or you’ve fell in love with a certain swimsuit and decided you must have it. Piece of cake – all you need to do is find a pattern you can copy from and make your own bikini or a monokini. You can always change some things you don’t like in the original pattern and best of all – it is going to be truly your size, made by your own hands for your body alone. Who knows your measurements better than you do?

The tools

One of the best things about DIY swimsuits is the fact that you only need a pattern, some needles, yarn in bulk and a bit of skill. Maybe the first swimsuit you make is not going to be perfect, but it’s important that you finish it and see how it fits. Every other you make is only going to be better and your skills and patience will improve. Finally, you’ll be able to make unique designs and definitely be noticed on the beach.

Depending on your own style, wished, and desires, you may choose to wear a crotchet dress without a bikini. Nevertheless, you should always choose that one thing that not only looks good on you, but makes you feel good while wearing it at the same time. The key is to be confident, that will make any bikini look twice as good on you.
