1. Name: ASOS Cut Out Popper Dress
This comes in 3 colours, Greenlake, Cream and Black (shown here). It features cut out detail to the sides with press stud fastenings to the centre, a scoop neckline and mini length styling. With regard to my rule above, what it take from the waist it makes up for in neck line. If you have a small waist this is the perfect way of showing it off without wearing bodycon.
2. Name: ASOS Cut Out Shift Dress
This also comes in 3 colours, Berry, White and Black (shown). It is a mini dress with cut out detailing to the back and sides with shaped panelling and a button fastening to the reverse. Not seen in the picture the front is completely covered with good tailoring and the angle of the cutouts give a sliming effect.
3. Name: ASOS Cape Back Waisted Dress
This comes in just one colour, black, and I suppose would get listed as a backless dress rather than cutout, but I thought it a good demontration as backless dresses have the backs "cut out". It features a cape detail to the shoulders and back, a deep V-neckline and a fitted panel to the waist. It is more floaty in design and will move well with the cape back moving showing varying amounts of skin. Lovely V-neck is made up for with ruffle sleeves mimicking the cape.
I know all of the above are from ASOS (I should really have shopped around) but the same rules apply to any dress. You can find this style dress in most shops. I also realise all the above are around the same price mark (I usually go for a range) but as they are pretty cheap I hope this isn't a problem. I am happy to source some other from either end of the price spectrum.
I love this look and for someone as pale as me the LBD look really works in contrast with my skin tone. I hope this was helpful and please comment or ask any requests :)
