If you’re trying to work out what to wear after lockdown, look no further than the cut out dress.
After almost a year of wearing loungewear non-stop, fashion is about to get a whole load more fun again. With the easing of lockdown comes countless reasons to dress up, from going out out (no, we can’t imagine it either), to picnics in the park and restaurant trips.
A trend we saw time and time again on the SS21 runway was cut out dresses, with slices missing from the sides, backs and shoulders of the garment to reveal a hint of skin.
The beauty of the cut out dress is that it can be worn anywhere. Shirt dresses with cut out sides offer a smart look, while slinky LBD’s are ideal for a night out.
Here, we’ve found 11 affordable and stylish cut out dresses to suit any style. With options from Zara, & Other Stories and NA-KD (as well as a vintage offering from Etsy), we hope you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for here.
