Finally – a sexy trend that anyone can wear! We’ve all seen the cutout trend that is all over this summer, but some girls feel they simply don’t have the body type to pull it off. The stomach slit trend plays off of the cutout – it provides a way for you to show skin in a way that isn’t too revealing, and it highlights the narrowest part of your waist. What’s not to love?
This summer has been way too hot and keeping cool while dressing for fashion is always our intention – but not everyone wants to run around in a next-to-nothing outfit. What we love about this trend is that it’s just the right amount of breezy without being too showy – and apparently, celebs love it too.
There are a few ways to take this trend into your own hands. One of our personal favorites is how Alessandra Ambrosio does it here – rocking a crop top with a cute maxi. When the maxi is pulled up to the slimmest part of the waist, there’s just a small gap between the waistband and the shirt hem – a sexy, stylish look that can be worn anywhere!
For a vintage-inspired look, try doing it like Ashlee Simpson did - here, she’s wearing high-waisted dress shorts with a bustier-style crop top and a cropped blazer. Her style is smart and fresh for a night out, but you could easily imitate it with a more casual tank and high-waisted denim shorts – perfect for pear-shaped gals who want to play up their curves.
Or, if you’re looking for stylish new club dresses or dresses for nights out on the town, check out styles like this one worn by Mena Suvari. It definitely still falls in line with the cutout trend, but the cutouts are in a flattering location. The contrast of skin on fabric has a sort of belting effect that suggests an hourglass shape and is sure to flatter women of all shapes and sizes.
