18 Fashionable Ways to Wear Cutouts

The cutout trend is here to stay and just as well, because they can give the right amount of ‘sexy’.

Fashion, in recent years, has decided to take the more subtle approach when it comes to showing skin. From sheer to mesh to cutouts, most pieces are all about giving that bit of peekaboo. Of course, worn the wrong way, they could end up backfiring and looking more trashy than trendy.

Cutouts are still around for Spring 2014 and we’ve seen celebs rock them in various forms, or rather, places. At the sides of dresses a la Nicole Richie and Olivia Wilde, down the middle of the cleavage a la Taylor Swift and Anna Kendrick, and just at the shoulder blades a la Miranda Kerr.

Wherever the cutouts are, it doesn’t have to be as revealing as you think. We take a leaf out of these fashionable LookBookers’ lookbooks to show you how you can rock the style boldly, or subtly.

WATCH YOUR BACK

One-pieces are always the easiest way to wear any trend, simply because the only mix and matching you need to do after that is your accessories. And for that department, you can either go bold or go neutral depending on the colour or print of your dress. Keyword: balance.

SIMPLE SEXYBACK

Cutouts at the back of a top work pretty well too, especially those with a simple triangle/square shape. It gives off a nice, clean finish to any bottom you choose to pair it with.

AT THE SIDELINES

Flaunt your curves with a dress that has its cutouts at the side! Of course, if you’re not too keen on bare skin, opt for one with a sheer texture.

WEAR YOUR CUTOUT ON YOUR SLEEVE

Show off those sexy shoulders because, why not? They’re especially great if off-shoulder tops don’t work for you (sometimes our shoulders just sadly can’t hold that low droop). Pair them with jeans or shorts for a casual look or a fancy skirt for a girlier outfit.

SHOW OFF YOUR SHOULDERBLADES

Time to aim a lil away from the ‘cheeks’ of your shoulders and more towards its refined blades. Necklaces are not recommended with this type of cutout.

POLKA CUTOUTS

What’s better than printed tops? Perforated printed-like tops. Again, accessorising should be kept minimal as the patterns are already the highlight of your outfit.

BUST A CUTOUT MOVE

For all those fit and flare skirts, nothing complements them better than a body hugging top; except maybe one that includes cutout details! Whether it’s a bustier, body suit or a tank, it’ll definitely go with most items in your closet.
