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.
