By Kim Anne Jun 25, 2012 4:44PM
Scalloped shorts are a great addition to a summer wardrobe. They’re cool, chic and can easily transition from day-to-night.

With just a little more detail, these shorts are great for throwing in your suitcase for a weekend getaway or wearing when out and about on a summer afternoon. 

Here are five that you can wear in a variety of ways, from pairing them with a blazer and tank to wearing them with an oversized tee, starting with these lace embroidered ones from Express. 

You'll be styling in the summer heat in no time.

Jeez, I had scalloped shorts back in 1968.  They were color blocked - one side of the shorts was blue and the other side was  yellow.  I guess everything comes back in time.

    8 wardrobe staples to buy now that will only get better with age

    Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
