If you want to look sexy but sophisticated on the New Year’s Eve party, wear a cutout dress. Showing a little skin in the right places would definitely add feminine charm to you. The cutout trend has stuck around for several years because it allows you to show off a bit of skin without revealing too much. Many celebrities love to stand out with cutout dresses on the red carpet.
Cutout dresses are flattering on most body types when the cutouts are strategically placed at the most attractive angles. Women love a new way to show off their body without feeling like they’re revealing too much, and the cutout dress is the way to do it. It’s a classy way to show a little skin without going the traditional cleavage or thigh-high route.
How to choose a cutout dress?
First, pick a dress that shows only one area and make sure it’s an area you’re confident with. I personally love cutouts on the back. There’s something feminine and mysterious about revealing a peek at your back. Second, keep in mind the occasion you’re wearing it for. Obviously some cut out dresses are more appropriate for certain events. The style only succeeds when you’re tasteful. Last but not least, stick to smaller displays of skin. If the dress is short, make sure the cutouts are small or covered in mesh/lace. If the back is open, stay away from more cut outs on the side. And if the neckline is deep, try not to show too many other areas of your body. Keep in mind: Less is more.
Tips on wearing cutout dresses
Focus on one area: If you’ve got a low neckline or a side cutout, tone down the rest. At the end of the day, just feel confident in it. It’s the worst to have a woman fidget and feel like she needs to hide something. Just be confident and comfortable.
Do not wear cutout dress for every occasion: Cutout dresses, even if they have really small cuts, are not always appropriate for every occasion. Avoid them for a wedding party, a really formal ceremony and for going to work, but wear them instead for a hot date or a drink with friends.
Make a bold statement with bright colors: If you want to go safe, choose black. But if you are feeling confident and wish to make a bold statement, you can go for a cutout dress in a really bright color, like the neon colors that are so on trend right now.
Keep the rest of your look super simple: Let the dress do the talking. No crazy jewelry, no wild shoes, no color risks–even the hairdo is sleek and understated!
