Balance the season’s sharp tailoring and stark minimalism with a soft fluid hemline that brings forth a nice change from the harshness of a straight line. The ripple effect was seen on the runways at D&G and Twenty8Twelve, where soft scalloped waves were the finish of choice. Even young starlet Hailee Steinfeld brought the new trend to life as she graced the red carpet.

The delicate yet bold statement, brings a graphic finish that instantly creates a sense of whimsy. Whether slipping into a wave-like hemline or opting for a scalloped accessory, the sweet and simple edges will instantly add fluidity to your look.
