A lot of us have had a love-hate relationship with mermaid hems that are heavy on volume — but there’s no denying that they instantly add edge to an outfit. Best used to add a retro touch to a cocktail dress.

Tulip-cut hems that tease with just a glimpse of skin are a great pick for the summer. Go for colour-blocked tulip-cut skirts that play with two tones on your pencil-fit silhouette. Opt for tea-lengths.

The layered handkerchief hemline instantly brings in a big dose of drama. We love its ethnicwear versions, so ditch the done-to-death anaarkali suits and go for flounce-heavy, floor- grazing ones.

Scalloped hemlines with curved edges are a fun way to bring in the summer. Use DIY to add tulle inputs to a scalloped hem tie-dye tee.
