Show Off Some Skin In Summer's Coolest Trend

A chic shortcut to co-ods.

We love co-ordinated tops and bottoms but sometimes its tricky for both pieces to fit exactly as you want, which is why we recommend taking a chic shortcut by opting instead for a cutout dress. It has all the benefits of a matching outfit, without the hassle of buying and locating two separate pieces at the same time. Another great benefit of this style is that, like a palazzo pant, the design is perfectly suited to warmer weather as it lets your skin breathe even on the most humid of days. 

Rather than a subtle snip at the sides, as we've seen on many evening dresses, these designs feature completely cutout panels at the midriff, creating the illusion of a separate crop top and skirt (or shorts if you're more of a romper person). Our personal favorite style comprises a small bow on the top, adding even more to the trompe l'oeil. 

Though they may not be office-appropriate, there are plenty of other spots to wear these statement pieces. Try rocking yours to the beach, brunch or even during a night of bar-hopping on vaycay – a cutout dress is the perfect item to keep you feeling cool while looking hot. Complete your look with a transparent handbag and wrap-up sandals and you’re ready to hit the town.
