Macrame is hot.
Yeah I said it, macrame is hot and not in a ’70s owl plant hanger kind of way but in a fresh new modern way.
The ’70s-era knot-tying craft is back in full force manifesting itself in home decor, art installations, runways AND even as one of the biggest wedding trends this season.
With the resurgence of all things seventies and boho for Spring/Summer 2017, of course, this woven boho textile has securely fastened itself as the must-have of the season.
Designers from A to Z are getting knotty with soft, boho-inspired, tied-knot details in every permutation imaginable, from perfectly polished, cosmopolitan-looking dresses, to boho beach pullover’s and easy road-trip worthy separates.
If macrame bikinis or peek-a-boo dresses aren’t quite your style, ease into the trend with a fringey macrame clutch or try a pair of macrame embellished sandals or sneakers to add just the right touch of texture to any outfit.
The key to making this trend feel fresh and not costume-y is all about keeping the rest of the look modern. Skip the bell bottoms and flare jeans. Opt instead for sleek, minimalist sandals and a pair of classic jeans. Look for pieces that have macrame details- like the Rachel Zoe blouse I’m wearing- rather than getting knotty from head to toe.
