Modest Summer Dresses with Lace and Cut Outs


Are you feeling empty – like there’s something missing in your life? Fill that void by relying on our Savior, Jesus Christ – the only one who seals every hole. One of this summer’s biggest fashion trends is cut out clothing, but don’t let them leave your heart feeling bare. Follow our tips on staying classy while wearing cutouts and fill the holes in your soul with scriptures of the One who paid it all.


Layout Cut Out Clothing

There are so many mountains in life that we have to climb. But we can trust that God will move those mountains. Rather than donning skimpy cutouts that show a lot of skin, wear clothing cut on an asymmetrical line. Give the illusion a cutout should without showing everything. Asymmetrical doesn’t always mean one-sleeve: 

“Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
 Matthew 17:20

Modest Cut Out Clothing

Without Jesus there’s a huge piece missing to the puzzle of everlasting life, making our salvation incomplete. Satisfy this Summer’s fashion trend by finding clothing with cutouts in appropriate areas. Examples include shirts with cutout shoulders or sleeves, a keyhole shaped cutout in the back of a blouse, or cutouts in the hem on a skirt. Search for clothing that includes modest cutouts:

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6 (NIV)

Wear Cut Out Jewelry

As sinners, our lives are filled with many empty, unrighteous activities, thoughts and words, yet God sent His Son for us despite our ways. Jewelry is a great way to sport the cutout trend, so let it represent all the areas in our lives where we’ve fallen short but have been forgiven. Peeps of skin will give a unique dimension to necklaces and bracelets:

But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us
Romans 5:8

Beautiful Lace Cut Outs

Sometimes emptiness causes restlessness. Avoid looking for the next best thing by realizing you have all that you need in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Look for a delicate cutout in lace to symbolize the intimacy you have with your Savior. Lace provides a version of the cutout trend without being too revealing. Check out these lace pieces:

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:28-29 (NIV)

Shoes with Cut Outs

If you walk with the Lord in everything you do, you will have no voids. The likeliness of feeling empty is nonexistent. Walk with Him and feel full. Sandals and wedges are a great product to capture the cutout trend. Look into some of the strappy options found below.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 23:4

Darling Dresses with Cut Outs

Our journey as Christians can often be exhausting, leaving us feeling entirely empty. During these arduous times we find ourselves longing for the Lord. Rather than adorning clothing that leaves us looking naked and bare, wear crisp summer dress that leave you feeling stylish and satisfied. When we’re feeling empty, it’s easy to slip on some casual loungewear. Instead, slip on a simple, stylish dress with minor cut outs around the waist: 

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1 (NIV)
