Are cut out dresses in style in 2023?
Yes! In 2023, you can expect to see even more of this daring trend, whether it’s a keyhole across the chest or a dramatic waist detail.
But the cutout dress isn’t just about being sexy. It’s all about feeling confident and empowered.
You can dress them up with a pair of heels and some statement jewellery for a night out on the town, or dress them down with a pair of sneakers for a more casual look.
And if you’re not into a tight, bodycon kind of look, don’t worry! There is a range of dress options that have strategic and creative cutouts—from delicate lace to sleek satin, and a range of colours, from classic black to bold neon.
There are cut out dresses with long sleeves, short sleeves, or no sleeves at all, and there are even cut out dresses with asymmetrical hemlines or unique patterns. With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find a cut out dress that fits your personal style and taste.

This year, sheer fabrics are a prominent trend, particularly in dresses. They were practically in every SS23 collection.
