The Surprising Sweater That's Trending in Zara

Oh Zara, where would I be without your style soothsaying? Thanks to the "trending now" section on the site, I've found many fashion-led pieces before everyone else has them. But after seeing what was trending this morning, I might have to take a step back from the section. While there was a graphic tee, a pair of pyjamas, and an aviator jacket (so far, so wearable), there was one item I wasn't expecting to see: the crochet jumper.

After asking the rest of the Who What Wear team what they thought, I discovered that it was split down the middle. While I don't mind the granny-chic look, could I really pull off crochet? To style it out, I'd make sure to wear it with smart jeans and boots to avoid looking too scruffy. Want to see the piece and make your own mind up? Keep scrolling for the crochet jumper from Zara and shop other key pieces.
