How to find the right dress

Fit

First things first, fit. You could find the dress of your dreams, but if it doesn’t fit, then it doesn’t work. Because cut out styles are typically more revealing, look for lengths and cuts that make you feel your very best. A flowing maxi or midi style is great if you want a little more coverage whilst you play with the negative spaces created by your cut out look. You’ll also find plenty of mini options for summer styling that truly stands out from the crowd. Choose what makes you feel most comfortable and confident, that’s what is going to make the real difference on your night or day out.

Material

Materials make all the difference, so pay attention here ladies. If you’re looking for a smooth, mesmerising take on the cut out trend, look for a satin fabric in a rich, sultry tone. Think red, sapphire and inky black. To play up the light and playful nature of the cut out look, you can also veer towards crisp cottons and Ponte materials in floral or pastel prints. For a more romantic, daytime event cut out dress, think dreamy hues; lilac, blush and daisy white. Looking for something for the cooler months? Keep an eye out for rib knit and velvet fabrics for a cosy cut out look that doesn’t compromise on style, even if the weather is a little bitter.
