Wear the Cut-Out Trend Without Baring All

From cut-out dresses and off-the-shoulder tops, to peep-toe booties – a hint of exposed skin adds an element of fun and personality to the typical summer look. Cut-outs don’t have to be limited to apparel, and can be worn in a beautiful way:

Subtle cut-out designs create an intriguing illusion. Opt for small keyholes at the waist, chest or sides. If you want a larger cut-out, select an open back.
