Summer is the season for skin-baring looks, but if you would prefer to err on the side of modesty (or subtle sexiness, as we like to think of it), we have the perfect trend for you.
Cutouts were all over the spring runways, from Herve Leger to Versace, and they came in all different forms. We love them most on dresses, where slight cutouts near the midriff, shoulders, or sides can turn a basic summer look from delicate to daring.
Aside from dresses, cutouts are taking shape in every summer style essential, from sandals, to crop tops, to swimsuits. Click through the gallery to see our favorite cutout inspiration and shopping picks for summer!
