Cut-Out Trend On Summer Dresses
Remember how, as kids, we made paper snowflakes by cutting out shapes in a folded piece of paper? Well, it seems that designers are doing that with the fabric used to make our dresses. The cut-out trend doesn’t seem to be dying and is a constant on runways and Red Carpets. This trend was once reserved for Las Vegas Boulevard but is now making its way into every dress style there is. Some could even be considered appropriate for brunch with grandma.
Check out these non-risqué summer dresses that feature the cut-out trend:
Torn by Ronny Kobo Bair Exotic Print Knot Dress
The closest this dress comes to a body hugging, Vegas dress is its animal print. This Torn by Ronny Kobo dress found on Shop Bop features the popular side and back cut-outs. Maxi dresses are great for summer, and the length of the skirt makes the skin exposing aspect not so risqué. The open back looks great; just make sure to wear sunblock to avoid any interesting looking tans.
Nasty Gal Exotica Dress
Though this Nasty Gal dress has an open back and a short cut, it manages to stay sweet and doesn’t appear too exposing. The bow in the back adds to the sweet, girly look. Paired with some wedges and your favorite casual jewelry, it’s a great dress for a summer’s day out. Like the model, wear your hair in a bun so as to not draw attention away from the intricate back cut of the dress.
ASOS Midi Dress With Cross Strap Bodice
This calf-length ASOS dress will definitely hold up to grandma’s scrutiny. It has a slight cut-out opening where the bodice crosses over, but it can’t be mistaken for revealing. This navy dress has a beautiful silhouette, and the fabric cinches in high on the waist to show off the thinnest part of the body.
Juicy Couture Gem Geo Print Halter Dress
This Juicy Couture dress has a similar cross strap bodice cut to the ASOS dress. I love the details of the contrasting blue patterns and the hidden pockets. The back of the dress also has a little key-hole cut-out to match the one on the abdomen. It is made from 100% silk, meaning it’s super light-weight and perfect for the summer heat.
