Horizontal stripes, high waists, hot pants, skinny jeans... some trends aren't made for everyone. In fact, some are made with a very specific, not-often-found-in-nature body type in mind, making them almost impossible to pull off by about 93% of the population. But that shouldn't hold us back – luckily, many of the hottest styles this season are designed to be effortlessly pretty and stylish, as carefree as our summer afternoons. Take scalloped shorts, for example. Unlike the resurrected 90s-fabulous cut-off short, with its daringly high hem, distressed details, and not-so-flattering silhouette, the scalloped short is flattering, feminine, and sophisticated without trying too hard. Not too short, not too tight, and with the perfect dash of girly flair without looking too frilly, scalloped shorts can be dressed up or down to suit whatever summer fetes you have planned!
