Cutout dresses have been popular for a while. Wearing a cut out dress is a great way highlight your favorite features. However, some ladies are taking it to the extremes. Cutout pieces that look like they came from a not so chic lingerie department, are being worn as dresses for public consumption. Eek! This makes me sad, lol. I want to bring back the chicness to the daring look, reel some of you in from the dark side and show you how to wear the cut out dress.
Spring 2014 Cut Out Dresses from Kaufmanfranco and Milly
The perfect cutout dress shows just enough skin and doesn’t force you to walk strategically or be overly conscious of the positioning of fabric. Peekaboo cuts on the side and sheer/illusion panels across the top are my favorite ways to rock the cut out look! You can find dresses with cut outs at the waist, shoulder, neck, back and legs. With spring a month away, cut out dresses will be out in full force. The spring 2014 runways were filled with cutout dresses and mesh illusion panels that were daring enough without going to the overly risqué side.
