It’s Trend Tracker Tuesday and this week’s post is all about those cutout dresses we’ve been spotting everywhere! Some have slits at the waist and some are exposed in the midriff area (like the Charlotte Russe dress I’m wearing). What do you think of this hot trend? Too much? I’m personally loving it because my waist and upper abdomen are the most slender parts of my body so I appreciate a little show and tell in that area. For this particular look, I went for a simpler, clean motif. Can we discuss how amazing my lucite necklace is?!

Here are some tricks I’ve discovered to pulling off the cutout dress trend:

1. Choose a silhouette that’s feminine in shape to offset the provocativeness of the cutout area.

2. Stick to solids or very basic prints (like the striped one above). You don’t want to overcomplicate with both a cutout AND a busy print.

3. Make the cutout the main attraction. While my necklace makes a statement, it’s clear and doesn’t distract too much from the focus.
