There’s a micro trend happening right now which gives minimalist pieces a feminine twist as scalloped hems and scallop detailing are having a bit of a fashion moment. This semi-circular edge adds life to the straight lines of a basic shell top, shift dress or collarless jacket and turns simple accessories into statement-makers.
Clean lines – or rather curves – are key to working an outfit around a scalloped piece. Run with the minimalism and stick to blocks of colour and neutrals, let the waves be your pattern.
Team these blue, nude and metallic peep-toe heels from Phase Eight (1) with everything from turn-up straight leg jeans, to white skinnies or black culottes. Wear as an occasion shoe with a floral dress and bright jacket or metallic shift and white blazer.
This striped jacket from Primark (5) has a subtle peplum shape to nip in your waist so it’s good for hourglass and pear shapes or adding curves if you’re more straight up and down.
Wear this mini dress (4) now over a black cigarette trouser and long sleeve top for a great, contemporary work look. And layer a long sleeve black roll neck under this lilac tee (3) until the weather warms up, then wear alone with white jeans for a fresh spring look.
