If last night's CFDA awards is any indication, the cut out trend is not going anywhere for a while. I think the cut out is a nice look - as long as it is on the right person. There are a lot of factors to consider when wearing cut outs - weight, age, event. The summer is the perfect time to try out this trend. Warm nights and rooftop parties practically beg for cut outs. Pick a part of your body you like and let the cutout highlight your summer skin underneath. Keep the trend to one piece and pair it with simple accessories.

While many of us cannot afford these gorgeous designer dresses (I would kill for that Rebecca Minkoff one and the body to wear it), there are a lot of nice affordable options out there from clothing to shoes!
