What to wear under a crochet dress

What you wear under a crocheted dress really comes down to where and what you’re wearing it for. If you’re wearing it on the beach or by the pool, chances are it’s as a cover up and you just have your bikini or swimsuit on underneath.

If it’s to dinner or out for everyday matching underwear, a slip dress or pasties and briefs or boy shorts are a better bet. You can even add a blazer or light jacket over the top for extra warmth. Pasties are great with halter neck styles specifically. Honestly, you can wear pretty much anything that you’d normally wear under sheer dresses or white shirts.

Generally, you don’t wear anything under your crochet top. Halter styles are more transparent than the bralette styles. If you want to be sure the ladies don’t show through, you can wear petals or pasties.

For a more fashion forward look for 2024 sheer dresses and crochet matching sets are right on trend. So now’s the time to take fashion risks and wear this in a more sexy way. To rock this trend just wear coordinating high waisted pants and a bra underneath.

There are also different degrees of how sheer the crochet is depending on the knit. If it’s a see-through crochet dress look for a dress with a lining or wear a slip if you’re not wearing it as a coverup or wanting to show too much skin.

Some of my favorite brands for crochet dresses and styles are Patbo whose styles are always fashion forward and besides their cut out maxis and minis, they also have the cutest crochet bralette and shorts matching sets and jumpsuits.

Revolve also has a huge collection this year including white dresses, pink dresses, red dresses and lots of other colour variations. They also offer free shipping and returns in the United States. It’s where I got both my cream crochet midi dress and crochet skirt and top from. I sized down in the crochet top as reviews said the knit material stretches out.

Just be careful to take extra care of your pieces and not to snag jewelry or swimwear embellishments on them. As crochet material can get caught pull easily.

Summersalt has some great affordable options but their knits are heavier weight.

Crochet dress try on

If you’re looking for organic, sustainable clothes, Le Kasha has some great options including this black maxi dress with 60% off. If you don’t want to do all crochet, look for super cute crochet panels or trims like this one by Miguelina.

I also really like If you’re planning on wearing it somewhere hot, look for lightweight materials, cotton blends and lighter colors. You can never go wring with a white crochet dress. Although the amount of holes in crochet helps to keep you cool anyway. For colder days, look for tighter knit crochet that doesn’t breathe as much or layer a slip dress under them.

Shop the best crochet dresses & outfits for 2024

Here’s my top pick from classic styles to fashion forward dresses, crochet matching 2 piece sets, best sellers, and new arrivals to sale items for Summer 2024 from designer to luxe for less.

If you’re petite consider a crochet midi dress instead of a maxi or one with tassels that you can trim so that you can wear it with flats to the beach or pool. I tend to prefer a sleeveless mini dress or maxi dress versus long sleeves or flare sleeves one to be cooler and two so they don’t dangle in food.

I also tend to prefer light colors to black dresses for resort wear as it tends to be cooler than darker colors. Another thing to look for is natural materials like cotton crochet to be cooler than a lot of synthetic materials.
