Get the Celebrity Look – Cutout Dress

Ways to Rock A Cutout Dress www.busywifebusylife.comTaylor Schilling was seen rocking one of the season’s hottest trends, cutouts. She was red-hot at a OITNB fan event in a collared Cushnie et Ochs design with sexy cutouts on each side. This look is not just for the celebs or those with perfect bodies, you can sport a cutout dress in more ways than one. Check out my Cutout Guide to find the right look for you.

Side Cut Outs

The side cutouts are the most popular way to rock this trend, because you can easily show off a little skin without being too revealing. Cutout sizes can vary from small slits to full side panels. Concerned about your showing off your waistline? I would look for a cutout that is higher up and closer to the bust line, this way your midsection will still be covered.

Front Cut Out

A front cutout is the perfect way to show a little skin in your mid-section. Designs can vary from small shapes to dresses that give the illusion of  separates. Keep in mind that this look is not for everyone. If you are uncomfortable showing off your stomach, then I would opt for a style that may be more flattering to your figure.

Back Cut Out

Back cutouts are the most flattering for any figure. This extra detail is a fashionable way to appear a bit conservative at first glance, and then wow them as you walk away. Designers are featuring back cutouts in all style of dresses,  a-line, maxi, sheath, etc, so find your favorite style and wear it in a trendy new way.
