On the verge of nightfall, cutout detailing adds an unexpected twist to diurnal dressing. Sharp slits gracing leather booties to oversized sweaters skimming shoulders take this sexy trend beyond evening attire.
Thinking daytime? Reel in the sex appeal with casual pieces, downplaying any risky business. Remember – your supporting garments are crucial in this outfit equation.
I advise channeling the Great Alexander Wang’s collection of cutouts, calling for head-to-toe neutrals, textured touches and an au naturel beauty regime. Post this on your bathroom mirror – Nothing is more KILLER than a woman who takes on a trend with ease.

Draped to perfection guarantees this blouse will flatter all figures.
4. Michael Antonio Mora, $62.99
Cutouts give these boots a major style boost.
