Crochet is definitely having its moment this season. The woven fabric can be found in both street style and more beachy bohemian looks. When trying to incorporate it into your wardrobe, you can opt for blues and beiges to achieve the trending “coastal granddaughter” look or make a splash in more effervescent shades. So whether you’re lying by the poolside or just walking around the city, crochet has become a must-have. 

Local brands in Egypt are creating some showstopping looks to have you turning heads on and off the beach. There’s an endless combination of colours and patterns waiting for you, so don’t miss out on this hot new trend. Here’s where to get everything from fun and colourful crochet accessories to more sophisticated summer dresses and tops.
