You just need to wear them with the right other items to make them work for the weather. So how do you wear crochet dresses in spring? Shelby Capacio of Fox 9 news has a tip: Dresses are the perfect layering piece to transition as the temperatures rise. Opt for a crochet dress in a saturated spice color. Pair with opaque tights, infinity scarf and your favorite pair of boots for now, update later with gladiator sandals and tribal printed bangles. I definitely agree with this basic approach. Bright colors are terrific for the fun spring season. If that’s not your thing then pastels and neutrals always work well. And I live in the Bay Area so I wear tights pretty much all year round. I love fishnets with crochet dresses because they add additional texture and an openwork pattern. For spring I’d mostly use flesh-colored or light-colored fishnets but it would obviously depend on the crochet dress I chose. How do you think crochet dresses should be worn in spring?
