How To Make Cutouts Classy

Sydne Style how to make cutouts look classyCutouts are a huge trend this season. But making them look classy can be tricky. You don’t want to show too much skin. I like to create balance with more conservative silhouettes for a sexy meets sophisticated vibe. I’ve worn this cutout dress to a ton of events. It shows just a peek of skin at the sides yet is still covered up with a high neckline and below-the-knee hemline. To keep the look streamlined I stuck to neutral accessories and a sleek ponytail. The mint is unfortunately sold out but it comes in a vibrant red or classic black. Hunter Bell also makes a jumpsuit version which is a fun alternative for summer nights!

    The cutout of your dress is just the right amount of skin showing. Love it.
