As we’re updating our basics every spring, which is THE best part about spring cleaning btw, we definitely go out of the way to indulge our girly side by caving in to all of the season’s loveliest trends. This year, the prettiest of them all has to be the scalloped edge. The curvy hemline instantly elevates wardrobe staples into high-vis pieces that are so distinctly feminine, and we just can’t get enough of the charming look! From springy scalloped tunics to scalloped hemmed shorts — our favorite! — check out these 22 ways to add this flirty trend to every spring outfit.
