Crochet, which started edging its way in a year ago, is in full expression on New York runways this week. Crochet, pointelle and other openwork stitcheries are used for midi-dresses, pullovers and bodysuits, bringing texture and interest to basic silhouettes. Deep flounces, scallop edges, and little beads add more post-hippie chic to this crafty technique.

Ruching is the new ruffle. Resort 2019 collections are full of these softly dimensional details, used for dresses, skirts, sweaters — and even pant legs. Horizontal placements gently suggest a waist on roomy dresses. Some ruchings are asymmetrical, or are adjustable with strings ties for customizable effects.
