It’s not, like, white linen or anything, but still, there’s something about scalloping—that cute little little curved detail on hems and edges—that feels like more of a warm weather thing than a winter one. Maybe it’s because it’s the very opposite of a winter utilitarianism, like fleece-lined jeans. There’s nothing practical about scalloping. Maybe it’s because it looks kinda happy, like the shape of a smile, and spring is happy. Or maybe it’s because it sort of looks like those doilies usually present at baby showers and outdoor weddings and other sun-drenched spring events.
But really it’s probably just because some genius figured out that if you have a bright-colored piece that’s otherwise completely simple, all you need to do is add a little scalloping and it look ever-so-slightly better. Like these six things below, each of which feel totally on point for spring: simple but sorta cheery, thanks to that doily-like detail, ready for picnics and sandal weather and all that good stuff.
