Cut It Out
Admittedly, this isn’t a look I rock on a daily basis. For the most part, I keep to modest, more classic lines. But every once in a while a dress comes along that’s a bit sassier than normal in a way that makes you feel sexy, strong and totally confident. The cut outs on this maxi are SO perfect. I love how they accentuate and draw attention to my waist, coupled with the vibrant orange tone and the great length – this dress is going to be my go-to for hot summer nights. And, imagine how perfect it would be for weekend Vegas trips!
Even though it’s a longer and slightly fancier maxi than most – I still made sure to pair it with flats to tone it down a bit. Cut outs are great because you can strategically use them to draw attention to your favorite features. For example, I love my waistline, so I gravitate toward cutouts higher on the waistline. If you love your back, look for dresses with low or open backs. To show off your shoulders and decolletage, cutouts around the neckline will be your winner. Finally, if you’re all about your legs, high slit maxis will be great!
** If cutouts are too daring for your comfort level, look for sheer or mesh panels on dresses. You’ll get the same payoff, but a tad bit more modest.
