The transition between winter and spring is a rather confusing time for clothing. I for one have had enough of all my winter wear and I’m desperately awaiting “no jacket needed” weather. Adding to the frustration of settling for the same old sweater/boots combo is the inconsistent weather patterns that tease us with warm sunny days. What better way to give in to the feel of spring than by showing a little more skin? Don’t opt for fewer layers, simply sport less of the ones you’re wearing.
Versatility is always key when incorporating a new look into your wardrobe. The ability to reinvent the same piece into endless outfits creates staples for any Fashionista’s closet. Take a peekaboo cut from a flirty date outfit to casual errand wear by throwing on a zip up hoodie and canvas shoes. Cutouts range from daring to subtle and everywhere in between. Find a style that works for you and use it to show off your best assets. If you’re savvy enough, you can even get creative and update some of your less worn clothes with a DIY cutout project.
What made this Fashionista stand out (besides her great fur vest) was the rectangular cut outs on the shoulders of her top. Pairing burgundy jeans and cheetah print loafers with a sliced neutral sweater brought this outfit to perforated perfection. Take a hint from this Fashionista and embrace the “less is more” logic. Adding perforation to your closet is a sure way to make your style a cut above the rest.
Spotted: The Sass & Bide spring 2013 show featured funky geometric cutouts.
