Scallop Hem Shorts Shopping Guide

If you've been hunting down cute scallop hem shorts or skirts for the longest time like me, you're in luck. I recently found one of each and despite each piece being slightly ill-fitting, the styles and colours are perfect. The hem is very flattering on every body shape and fun and flirty for spring and summer.

This morning, I opened up my Pitaya email newsletter and found a familiar pair of shorts on display - the mint green scallop hem shorts I recently bought. Pitaya is full of wonderful surprises. Now that I'm aware that Pitaya carries items from boutiques like Modcloth, I noticed that the Threadsence and Sosie mint green scallop hem shorts (also in khaki and black) are in stock at Pitaya. If you live in around these 17 locations, you can go instore, but the shorts are fully stocked online now too.

Scallop Shorts Stats
12 inch length, 2 inch inseam, 100% tencel (a type of rayon, cellulose fabric)
Available in size S, M, L
Colors: Khaki, Mint, Black
Warning: Petites about my size will find this to fit like a M. 
Petites smaller than me (like Kileen of cute&little) will find these shorts way too big. 

At Pitaya, these are going for $36 USD a pop. All sizes and colours are currently in stock.

Next up is Sosie, selling the exact same shorts for $43 USD. Their images aren't easily saveable, so here are just the links.
Mint (S, M, L available)
Khaki (M, L available)
Black (M, L available)

Finally, Threadsence has their "Minty Fresh Scalloped Shorts" left in medium and large. Smalls sold out almost immediately after restocking. They are selling each pair for $37 USD. [Click] on the images to purchase from Threadsence.
Very soon, I will show you how I styled my mint green scallop hem shorts that I purchased from Threadsence. Hint: it's a pastel cream dream. Hope this shopping guide helps you to your pair of perfect scallop hem shorts! [Update 8/21/11: Outfit 1]

If these don't work out, many other stores have scallop hem shorts too (Urban Outfitters is a good option for petite gals).

I've been looking at these cute shorts but decided on a red one from Urban Outfitters because these seems short. Really wanted the one from H&M Conscious line, they ran out so quickly! Thanks for posting this, might need to grab one.

I am on the lookout for a pair of scalloped shorts myself too. I love the mint green ones but I know for sure they would be too big for me(after seeing them on Kileen). Can't wait to see how you style those shorts =)
