We’re all for anything girly and ethereal for summertime, and charming scalloped hems are one of our favourite trends right now. Most often seen on flirty shorts and skirts, scalloping is now coming up on everything from crop tops to bikinis, in every fabric from leather to lace.
While Valentino showed scalloped trimmed dresses on the runway for Fall/Winter 2012, for summer we are keeping things light and loving the look on separates. These leather Alice By Temperley shorts have been on our coveted list all summer, while the scalloped Heidi Klein bikini in classic taupe is one of our favourite suits available right now.
How To Wear
Scalloping adds unexpected girly detail to these pieces, so wear only one piece at a time to avoid looking like a tiered birthday cake. We would pair scalloped shorts with a cute chambray or denim button-up or a simple peplum tank top. As for these gorgeous tanks by Marc by Marc Jacobs and W118, we could see them balanced with simple leather or denim shorts and fun wedges. Scalloping is no longer just for potatoes, so devour this sexy and sweet trend.
