Summer is on its way, and with it comes an influx of new seasonal trends. From tie-dye to linen and Bermuda shorts, there are a few standout looks that certainly seem to have taken over our Instagram feeds in recent months.
Though, not all trends are immediately obvious, as sometimes it can be the smaller details that make a look even more impactful. Enter my favourite summer dress microtrend: cut-out silhouettes. Whether it be an open-back detail, front keyhole or waist-enhancing side splits, cut-out silhouettes seem to be everywhere at the minute. From influencer imagery to e-comm campaigns, this interesting detail has been highlighted across high-street and designer items, proving its popularity once and for all.
Whether it be Cult Gaia's Serita dress, already worn by the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Candice Swanepoel, or Sir the Label's Alena Open-Back dress, which has captured the attention of Brittany Bathgate and Lucy Williams, it's clear that this summer is all about statement silhouettes.
Our advice? When wearing a dress with cut-out details or an intricate design, keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple. Some understated sandals, a woven handbag and minimal jewellery will really allow the dress itself to shine.
