Hanky Panky

Here's one hanky you won't want to wipe your sniffles with! The handkerchief hem trend has a bohemian flair that is perfect for the summer months. With hems that form into points either off to the sides or in the front, this trend can be quite flattering in helping to create the illusion of a longer, leaner body line. From bold midi dresses to more subtle tank tops, this trend is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. I especially like how these hems help to add some much needed variety to the basic straight hem. It's always nice to mix things up once in a while. Be on the lookout for this unique hem this summer. I'm sure you will be spotting them in stores and on the streets over the next few months!
