Is there anything better than finding that perfect summer dress? When the weather starts to heat up, there’s nothing more convenient or confidence boosting than a few dreamy dresses tucked away ready for all your summer plans. The silhouette of the season? Look no further than a cut out dress. This is the best cut for when you want to feel elegant, feminine, on trend and downright amazing about yourself. Cut out pieces accentuate your very best features while keeping you cool and comfortable – what more could you ask for from a summer dress, really? Here’s a few styles you should keep your eye on if you’re thinking about treating yourself to a few beautiful new dresses this season…
Pretty in pink
A perfect pastel pink cut out dress just screams summer. This cool toned delicate petal pink is going to accentuate your glow, flatter your features and pair with pretty much everything in your accessory collection, a real no brainer for those nights when you want to put in minimal effort and get maximum output. Wear yours with white sneakers and an oversized denim jacket for an off duty vibe or style it up with bold toned heels and chunky jewellery to really stand out at your next summer evening event. It’ll work anywhere, so meet your new best friend.
The maxi cut
Maxi dresses with cut out details keep you feeling fresh and on trend while channeling a little old world glamour. Look for a column dress to elongate your silhouette, with eye-catching cut out detailing that flaunts your very favourite parts of yourself. Think waist, arm or leg cut out accents. Keep hair and makeup simple and paired back to let the bold beauty of your maxi cut out dress really shine. This is the one for more formal warm weather affairs where you still want to stun.
Shoulder or arm cut out designs on a long sleeve dress look so unique and different, you’re sure to stand out from the crowd. These dresses look truly incredible in deep, dark colours like black, navy or forrest green. The longer sleeve cut makes shoulder or arm accent cut out styles ideal for those unseasonal nights where there’s a bit of a chill in the air. Pair with knee high boots or strappy sandals, pull your hair up to let the cut do the talking and head out the door. This one basically does all the work for you.
Waist cut outs are just amazing. This style draws all the attention to your waist and creates a stunningly beautiful feminine silhouette that’ll have you feeling your very best, no matter where you’re headed. Look for yours in a lightweight cotton fabric and an a-line cut. A-line dresses already fit and flatter all shapes and sizes beautifully, but add a waist cut out detail? You’ve got yourself the perfect hourglass silhouette without even trying. Pair with simple accessories like chunky gold hoops and platform sandals and you’re golden all summer long.

Look for the more offbeat cut out styles in interesting spots like your back or hip bones to really turn heads at your next mid summer occasion.

There you have it! The must have cut out dress styles to covet this summer, and every summer after.
