Seeing Scallops

By now you know my love for pretty little details, so it really comes as no surprise that this includes scallops. Scalloped hems, necklines, and trim -- I'll take them all. They're so distinctively charming and feminine!

They may seem simple and subtle to some, but scallops pack such a pretty punch into any outfit and make quite the statement. To me, they say that you're not afraid to take your style too seriously but that you still aim to be dressy and elegant. They're also a great way to  indulge your girly side. ;-) 

Adding just one scalloped piece to your outfit is sure to make it stand out, so the key is to keep the rest of the look clean and streamlined; you don't want to overdo it! Another small style tip: be discerning about the size and layers of the scallops; if they're too large, tiered, or voluminous, they can quickly become overwhelming and unflattering -- no thanks. Instead, if the scallops are layered or tiered, try choosing a closer fit to the body so that they skim and flatter; after all, you want them to be fun and flirty, not frumpy. 

I'm so happy to see that this scalloped fashion trend is here to stay! I'm seeing it across several of my favorite retailers/brands: Ann Taylor, Banana RepublicJ.Crew, Kate Spade, Macy's, Nordstrom (to name a few.) All the pieces I've rounded up here have already made their way to my Spring wish list. Remember the scalloped blouse (#8 above) that I included in my Spring Cravings post? It's the same style as the blush one I bought from Banana Republic last year but at a fraction of the price. I had wanted the black and white one as well, which was identical to this one, but the petite sizes sold out too quickly. Now, I'm thinking I need this one! I'm also completely smitten with this Kate Spade scalloped tweed collection, which I also included in my Spring Cravings post. It's definitely on the pricey side, but so lovely and timeless!

I'm also eyeing these:

What about you, are you sweet on scallops, too? 
Which of these are calling your name?

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

P.S. I'm still working on my other outfit post (sneak peek from my Instagram here) which should be up on the blog soon!
