What’s in-fashion these days? Cutting it out of whatever you are wearing. Less is more when it comes to these peek-a-boo styled cut outs, seen everywhere lately. Even Michelle Obama has been trying out the trend at the London Olympics!
Strategically placed cut outs in whatever you are wearing can lead to a very interesting and fashion-forward look. Check out these cool pieces that I found!
First off, I love this cutout maxi dress from ASOS. If you’re not crazy about this trend yet, go for something along these lines (no pun intended). It is simple and still conservative with its cut-outs, but is also very trendy and unique. Wear this maxi dress with some simple flat sandals and you are all ready, set, to go. Sorry, too much Olympic watching…
Here’s another cutout dress from ASOS, this white and beaded frock could be dressed up or down for any occasion. While this dress has more cutouts than the last dress, I love how conservative and classy it stays even though most of the neck is missing. Wear it with some simple black pumps and your hair in a loose up-do to show off the cutouts.
For a cutout top, I love this neon sleeveless blouse from Delia’s. It’s super fun and the cutout in the back is just right. This top could easily be worn with a pair of white jeans and your go-to wedges for many different occasions. Don’t be afraid to cut it out of your wardrobe this year and make a statement with a little bit less!
