How are the outfits different?
If you want to stick to the specs, consider bare back and shoulders, with cuts at the waist, hips, collarbone or even lower belly.
How to style?
Celebrity fashion designer Aisha Desmukh suggests a few ways to style cutout dresses:
- Undoubtedly, you can show bellies and obliques, but too much can be uncomfortable. One should wear it according to the level of comfort.
- Style a cut-out outfit so that only one or two body parts are visible at a time. It’s the fine line you need to draw to maintain it between just enough and too much.
- You can go absolutely crazy styling them with jewelry, of course depending on your mood and the occasion.
Makeup can vary from light to dramatic. When you wear it for brunch or a night out with your girls, pop color on your lips and a messy bun or sleek ponytail is just enough. For evenings, one can opt for bare lips, shimmering eyes and lots of highlighter.
