Three times makes it official, right? Ciara, Rihanna, and Emma Watson, three of Hollywood’s most notorious fashionistas have all recently stepped out wearing what is sure to be one of the summer’s biggest trends— side cutouts. An easy way to be kind of sexy (except in Cici’s case, she’s all the way sexy, lol), cutouts show off a hint of skin, without revealing too much.
The trend works on a range of silhouettes, including maxi dresses, like the one Ciara is wearing, bodycon dresses, like Rihanna’s Carven dress, and even full skirted dresses, like Emma’s Hakaan ‘Gemma’ dress. Rihanna and Emma have even paired their cutout dresses with another popular celebrity fashion trend, nude heels.
If you’re ready to hop on the cutout bandwagon, see below for several options where you can purchase your own trendsetting dress.
