With a new season on the horizon and the progressive reopening of the nation looming there is one question at the front of everyone’s minds. What should we wear? Surprisingly, the answer to this question…”Not much” This summer is all about showing skin and cut-outs are the way to do it.
Yes, honey! This summer we’re showing skin. First, it was cleavage, then the timeless low back and now it’s all about the torso, with the cutout trend. Cut-outs have been everywhere recently. The cut-out dress, cut-out tops, cut-out swimwear oh my! And it doesn’t stop there, the trend has even made its way to the red carpet at the Oscars. From Zendaya’s stunning yellow dress to Andra Day’s shiny gold number it’s clear that showing a little torso is the way to go this season. Even Viola Davis had an intricate take on the cut-out trend. Though revealing the midriff is no new thing, I’m sure we all have a few good crop tops or 20, cut out are a sexy, elegant, and fun take on showing some skin.
Both affordable and luxury brands have caught on to the cut-out. We saw it show up in unexpected ways on the runway from designers like Valentino. And we even see it in fun modern takes with eye-catching patterns from brands like Farai London. From the simple midriff peek-a-boo to geometric patterns the cut-out makes a great case to be the most popular trend this summer.
After a full year spent inside bundled up in sweatpants, everyone’s betting on this summer to be the reemergence of fashion and a sexy little cut-out might be what we need. Let your skin breathe outside of those sweats, whether in a multi-colored body suit or a minimal cut-out dress, hot girl summer is here and we need to show up and show out!
