The Scalloped Edge

Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

One of the trends that I find so unique is the scalloped edge. We first saw them on shorts and now it has gradually sneaked up on us and can be seen on everything from dresses to pants, blouses and accessories.

 As we embrace all things pretty and feminine, nothing sweeter comes to mind than a simple scalloped edge. Echoing natures softest shapes like waves, flowers, and shells - a scalloped hem adds a soft, feminine and vintagy touch to our wardrobe.
 
 With a delicate yet bold touch, the scalloped edge cut brings forth a nice change from the harshness of a straight line. Here I paired my scalloped hem blazer with a lace pencil skirt to juxtapose the different texture of the garments giving off an edgy yet feminine look.
 
Whether you incorporate the scalloped edge into your wardrobe with a subtle blouse, edgy shorts, or feminine skirt, you’ll be making a sartorial statement in one of this season’s most charming trends =)

    I had an awesome new years, spent at the Sydney Opera House, can't get a much better location than that! I hope yours was equally as awesome :)

    I love this lace skirt, I've been on the hunt for one myself but have only found super short ones, this long one looks much nicer. If only we had h&m in australia :(

    Have a great day!

  102. Thu,

    I love the combination of lace with the felt and leather jacket! Is the hemline of the dress scalloped as well? It looks like it! Great outfit and a great transition from winter's heavier fabrics into spring.

  142. Thanks so much for your comment, I appreciate it very much! I love the styling of two seemingly very different statement pieces (the jacket and lace skirt) put together and combined in just the right way to create a truly stunning outfit from head to toe while still being quite neutral in the color palette.
