Break out the espadrilles, throw a crochet cover-up over your bikini and grab your basket bag, as this summer is set to be a crafty one. It’s time to go au natural and embrace a 70s boho vibe with macramé and raffia alongside linen and cottons as handicrafts will dominate your holiday wardrobe.

Accessorise all areas

The easiest way to bring the craftwork trend into your wardrobe - if a crocheted maxi dress and fishing net sweater aren’t your bag - is to work it with accessories:

1. The Basket Bag has become an absolute must-have thanks to luxe labels like Cult Gaia leading the recent resurgence of this accessory trend in bamboo, rattan and straw with High Street favourites (naturally Zara, Mango and H&M) paying homage to the Cult Gaia designs.

2. Shell jewellery instantly adds a relaxed Ibizan feel to your style and the tidal wave of beachy themed accessories in store and online this summer makes adorning yourself with sea shells a quick, easy and affordable way to rock the boho craft look.

3. The Raffia Sandal is your slider update for Summer 2019, whether or not you invested in the Hermes-a-like sandals of last summer, this season’s finish as seen at Dune adds a touch of craft to your classic summer staples.

HIGH STREET HIT:  Zara’s shell embellished block heel mules tick the boxes for comfort and trend appeal. Pair with denim shorts or your new season prairie dress.
