Cut-outs: what's sexier than that? Even the most severe-looking subtle dress can turn its owner into a sex goddess with a nice cut-out in all the right parts. The exciting thing about this trend - besides making boys' heads turn - is that now we see cut-outs in all sorts of unconventional places. It is not just about the neckline or the midriffs or thigh-high slits anymore. We see cut-out sleeves and bodices playing with the eye and geometry. Sometimes they're the smallest, with just a peek of skin showing through or they are big and out there, exposing a serious amount of skin and making hearts beat faster. The thing about them is, you have to be very careful for it not to look trashy. I mean, you gotta leave something to the imagination, right? And that's when mesh steps in.

Now, you're thinking: how do I style a cut-out mesh dress? With not much. I suggest simple pointed-toe pumps to enhance the legs and one piece of jewelry. Whether that will be a necklace or a cuff bracelet, that depends. I have created a set for you including other options as well as ways to wear this trend in your daywear.
