It's no doubt that TikTok is responsible for finding the hottest clothing trends. Case in point: the butt-lifting leggings that everyone, including Lizzo, can't get enough of. And now, it seems that users on the app have found the latest "It" item for the summer: crochet tank tops. 

The knit designs are everywhere on the app. The hashtag #crochettop has more than 46.4 million views, and influencers as well as average users can be spotted throughout the app's For You Page (a feed of public videos curated by TikTok's algorithm) sporting the casual look in their videos. And while the design looks rather luxe, it's actually quite affordable to shop, especially on Amazon. Some customer-loved crochet tops start at $12 - and many of them are available for  around $20 or less. 

Like TikTok users, Amazon shoppers are big fans of this youthful, airy summer style because the tops' knit design is breathable, making them ideal for extremely warm days. For example, this Uusollecy style is a flowy A-line cami that has the typical flattering shape you can expect from a loose tank top, but its patchwork construction allows for airflow, keeping you cool. 

"I bought a few and am very happy with how nice they look and feel on a hot day," wrote one five-star reviewer. "Pair with a skirt or shorts, [and] they dress up your look fabulously."

That versatility is a major draw for shoppers. Most of the knit styles on Amazon come with casual cuts that go well with shorts and pants, and there are several pattern options and color choices to pick from, too. For example, this Tutorutor crochet top comes in several neutral colors that can match with whatever bottoms you've got in mind. And in cooler months, they can easily act as the first layer below cardigans and sweaters. 

One reviewer went as far as calling this tank top style the "perfect summer staple." They continued: "I've worn it with dress pants and shorts and have received compliments every time."
