This inky, slinky black tunic is all details, from its crocheted yoke and neckline to its fluttery, flattering hem, to its button-cuffed sleeves. Layer over skinny jeans or patterned leggings and add a pair of knee-high boots, and don’t forget a slouchy Boho bag and hammered-bronze earrings.

One needn’t raise one’s voice to get attention. Don this dusty plum hued cardigan, and draw eyes without saying word. Layer over a grey maxi dress and flats, or wear with a grey tank and patterned leggings. The crocheted details along every edge are beautiful, and can make even the most casual outfit a little dressier.

This isn’t truly a dress, more of a long sweater, so beware! It’s not lined, so you’ll need a tank… isn’t it gorgeous, though, as a layering piece? I’d love this with a tank underneath and a pair of knit leggings and boots. I love the color… so creamy!

I wonder if it’s too late to add a few of these gorgeous crocheted pieces to my holiday wish list? I especially adore the gloves… so pretty! Which of these crocheted pieces do you like best, and how would you wear them? Please share!
