Spring's in full swing—are you ready to bring some sexy back? After spending months (or has it been years?) bundled up in cozy loungewear, we definitely are. That's why we love the season's cutout trend. It's flirty and a little bit daring, even though it doesn't reveal too much—our favorite pieces play it safe and offer just a glimpse of skin. Loungewear isn't going anywhere, but spring is all about new beginnings—why not welcome our most optimistic season with a fresh, fashion-forward look? Our stylists picked a few standouts to get you started.

Waist-Defining Dresses

Subtle cutouts turn these designs into power pieces, drawing attention to the midriff in a way that exudes confidence. Less is definitely more here—showing just a sliver of skin goes a long way. As a bonus, there's no need to accessorize. Just slip on your favorite sandals and you're ready to head out the door.

Take-Notice Tops

Want to show off your shoulders? These tops have you (un)covered. The neutral colors keep the look minimal, so the overall effect is artful rather than overexposed. They're surprisingly versatile too—you can keep them casual with loose, light-wash denim or dress them up for date night.

Wear-Now Knits

This trend is perfect for unpredictable temperatures—especially when it's translated to spring sweaters. These strategically slit knits offer the coverage you need when it's cool and a little breathability once the sun gets going. Whether you're layering them on or wearing them alone, these styles add unexpected dimension to every outfit.
