Currently Craving: Smitten with Scallops

With spring on the horizon, it’s almost time to start breaking out your favorite sunnies, sandals, sundresses and shorts. And this spring, there’s one trend that I plan on incorporating into as many outfits as possible—the scalloped edge.  Feminine and flirty, scalloped edges transform any piece into something special. A scalloped hemline adds a little touch of sweetness to any top, skirt, or dress. I especially love an unexpected scalloped edge on a pair of springy shorts. And it doesn’t stop with clothes—scalloped edges are making their way into accessories too, with the pretty detail popping up on sandals, flats and handbags.

I’ve fallen so in love with this trend that I included the detail in a few pieces from the Spring Paper Crown Collection. Also, one of my favorite flats from my Kohl’s line includes a scalloped edge. I think it’s safe to say that I’m scalloped-obsessed!

And the best part about this versatile trend? It doesn’t matter what your body type is—there are endless types of scalloped silhouettes that will flatter your figure. It’s one of the most wearable trends around—dressed up or dressed down, a scalloped edge instantly elevates any outfit.

Here are a few of my favorite takes on this perfectly pretty trend:
