Finding the right swimsuit can be a task. From body type to fabric, cut and style, there’s a lot to factor in when shopping for swimwear.
Can you even swim in a crochet bikini? You can certainly try, but crochet bikinis are probably better for making a fashion statement than taking a dip — and celebs have taken notice. Dua Lipa, who loves rocking crochet clothing, was spotted in a checkered crochet bikini in Miami last year, while Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney struck a pose in a Mao London Lili crochet bikini during a 2022 beachside photoshoot.
But it’s not just swimwear. Olivia Rodrigo sported a crochet look on the cover of Variety in 2021, Miley Cyrus has worn crochet multiple times, and Solange is no stranger to the crochet trend.
