Wear the trend: Cut Outs
From Bibhu Mohapatra, Givenchy and Giles to Raakesh Agarvwal and Pankaj and Nidhi, laser cut outs on all outfite across the board dominated the Spring/Summer 2012 runway shows.
While cut outs can sound like they might be too risqué, don't let that thought dampen your style, Vogue. in tells you how to wear this edgy peek-a-boo trend for every occasion.
Brunch: Think white and feminine when opting for a laser cut outfit for the day. We love the crepe dress by Roksanda Illincic. Keep the rest of your look clean with minimal or no accessories. For those who aren't sure about revealing skin, try the trend in small doses like this white cut-out skirt by Zara.
Work: Follow this trend without breaking your corporate dress code; adapt it in the form of accessories or demure silhouettes. We love the Broderie Anglaise cotton blouse by Tory Burch to help us look trendy and professional at the same time. Alternatively, the cut-out leather sandals by Etro are ideal to dress up a shift dress.
Cocktail: Leave your inhibitions at home and go all out sexy with cut-out details. Choose only one statement piece like the laser-cut leather top by Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony or the embossed leather boots by Balmain for maximum impact.
