When you’re looking to throw an outfit together quickly, it’s essential to have a few go-to pieces that help you look like your tried when you really didn’t. This Fashionista stood out to me this week because she seems to have found where simplicity meets style.
I love the way her blouse incorporates cutouts in a girly way that isn’t vulgar in the slightest. Paired with a simple but well-fitting pair of skinny jeans leaves her looking clean and simple yet stylish.
They key to pulling this look off is to avoid showing too much skin. Leaving a little to the imagination is chic, but baring it all definitely isn’t. Take this Topshop tank, for example. It has a light, dainty feel but the cutout pattern make it just edgy enough.
For something a bit more covered up, I love this coral colored tunic from Urban Outfitters. The triangular cutouts are bigger but fall high enough to keep you covered up. It would pair perfectly tucked into high-waisted shorts and strappy sandals.
Another trend I’m seeing a lot with cutouts is shoulder slits. This royal blue blouse from Charlotte Rouse takes a classic button down to the next level. The slouchy, loose fit and cutouts down the arm give it girly vibe while still feeling effortless.
