Cutouts Are Getting Hot This Season!

Cutouts Are Getting Hot This Season!

Cutout dresses are one of the hottest fashion trends in 2021, making a comeback from the early aughts. Once associated with rebellious teens and late-night parties, cutouts have been reinvented by the world of high fashion and have dominated the runways during Spring ’22, with whale tales and hole-punching designs leading the way.

Although cutouts were once considered a taboo trend, models and celebrities have recently embraced the fashion statement, wearing these skin-baring patterns in a way that is more accessible outside the Hollywood bubble. Bella Hadid, for example, wore a pair of black, low-rise pants with hip cutouts on a night out in Paris back in June, and paired them with a simple black tank and lace bralette. Wearing a simple, understated attire is quite fine for a night on the town.

Kim Kardashian also wore a carved-out outfit to the Vatican City in early July, baring her back and hips. Kourtney Kardashian’s black-and-white striped bodycon dress with circular cutouts flowing down her underarms to her skirt’s slit was one of the trend’s more daring examples. Dua Lipa wowed in a two-piece suit with cutouts across her chest on an outing with Anwar Hadid while Katie Holmes walked the black carpet in a highly cutaway LBD.

1. Spaghetti Strap Cutout Halter Maxi Dress

Starting off with something subtle, Spaghetti Strap Cutout Halter Maxi Dress is a simple yet sophisticated dress. The simple diamond carvings at its sides and front are bold, but not over-the-top. You can easily cover up a bit with an open oversized blazer or duster coat, then shed the top layer once you’re ready to show more skin.

2. Striped Print Colorblock Cutout Waist Tank Dress

While nowhere near as subtle, this Colorblock Striped Print Cutout Waist Tank Dress is on the gentler side of daring cutouts that are expected to be popular next season. Featuring a bodycon, the flirtatious yet structured mini also shows flesh at the waist and back, so you’ll make a statement from every aspect.

3. Rhinestone Decor Ladder Cutout High Slit Party Dress

The waist of this dress is connected with a chain of rhinestones, leaving little room for the imagination. This height of the cutout is quite daring and not for the faint of heart with a bare waist (or confidence).

Scandalous? Maybe. Sexy? Absolutely. Next season we expect cutouts to become even more bold, thanks to the latest runway presentations. Are you prepared for this?

I love fashion. But I'm tired of walking store to store hunting for my next favorite outfit, having to turn down the lovely lady once again (in the face), all the while, I'm frequently changing style, swiping out of the wardrobe with all new clothes. That means I don't believe fashion has to cost an arm and leg. There are a few online boutiques that I shop at that I think anyone should keep in their bookmarks. They are my favorite, and I hope they will be yours too.
