Resort collections are showing a lot of shoulder action this summer. With the right strategically placed cutout, whether on a dress, shirt, skirt or pants … you can be extremely sexy without feeling the need to bare all. Revealing the shoulders, the collarbone or back can be a titillating but tasteful way to show a little skin.
Cutout dresses are chic and highlight a part of the body that doesn’t usually require hours of upkeep at the gym. Designers including Rachel Zoe and Lanvin Resort have incorporated cutout shoulders in their resort collections this summer.
To fully grasp the essence of this look, the goal is to appear effortless and subtly sexy. Cutout shoulders are a conservative way to show some skin, but with a big impact. The easiest way to go for this look if you opt out of wearing a dress, is to switch it up with a flowy blouse, slim flattering jeans or leggings, and sky-high heels.
