London Fashion Week Trend Report: Handkerchief Happy

A trend I noticed on the London Fashion Week runways involved not a pattern or accessory, but instead, a silhouette: the one created by a handkerchief hem. In the early aughts, handkerchief hems were seen on college girls and socialites, and now it's back in a more asymmetrical variation, with a look that's accessible to everyone, regardless of your style.

Antonio Berardi showed a beautiful dress which juxtaposed the glamorous sequinned top with the light and easy bias-cut handkerchief hem skirt.

Mulberry used the handkerchief hem on a menswear-inspired dress. Paired with a coordinating jacket, the look was polished yet relaxed.

The handkerchief hem on Preen's velvet embellished and ruffled dress was the perfect addition to this romantic look.

At Pringle of Scotland, the theme was modern monochrome and the handkerchief hem packed extra punch when paired with a tunic top of similar draping.

A handkerchief hem highlighted the color scheme of Temperley's flowing ombre dress.

When thinking about new additions to your wardrobe for next Spring, consider the new twist on handkerchief hems. The cut of the skirt allows for a little extra flounce and flow to the material when you walk. And besides, who doesn't want an extra spring in their step?
