Crochet is turning out to be the hottest trend of the summer. And if you need more proof, just look at Strictly Come Dancing champion Rose Ayling-Ellis who took to Instagram on Sunday wearing a pink crochet halter neck bra top.

The 28-year-old teamed her vintage-inspired Sandro butterfly top with a stylish baby pink blazer from Me+Em, stonewash Veronica Beard wide-leg jeans and a pair of pink and white Puma trainers
