14 Ways To Wear The Breeziest Trend Of The Summer


Macramé might just be the most summer-friendly trend to emerge from the runways

Of all the trends to emerge from the Spring 2019 runways, there's one in particular that we've been counting down the days until we can finally start wearing: netting. And with the official kickoff to summer just two days away, now's the time to stock up.

From crochet and macramé to fishing net-inspired, the open-knit pieces we saw at the likes of Pyer Moss, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Ulla Johnson, and more are the answer to all the warm weather—and humidity—ahead of us. The trend can be seen everywhere from essential swim cover-ups and beach bags to breezy formalwear, and we couldn't be more thrilled about it.

To make sure you're prepared for summer's swelter, we rounded up the 14 must-have, netted ready-to-wear and accessories of the season. Check 'em out, below.
