What Goes With Crochet Tank Tops?

It’s summer! Pretty much anything goes with crochet tank tops, right?! What other crochet garments can you think of?

Crochet cardigans from cropped short or long-sleeved cardigans to tunic length and longline dusters; the choice is yours (or the one you’re crafting for). Cardigans are a great choice since you can let them flow open or close them up to protect you from the breeze.

Shawls are another great option. If you want to show off your crochet tank but need something for when it gets cooler, sling that shawl around your hips. Once the temperatures drop, drape that beautiful shawl around your shoulders and dance the night away.

Ponchos are also a fabulous choice and super easy since there’s no need to worry about fitting sleeves of any kind. Not to mention, you can snuggle your arms up underneath a poncho with no problem once the sun dips low in the sky.

Boho style is really hot every summer. Sharpen up those crochet skills, and check out this blog post for more boho fun.
