Will You Show Off Your Shoulders With Cutouts?

-------

We’ve glimpsed quite a few exposed shoulders on the streets and at the Resort collections this summer. Casual, collared dresses popped up at Richard Chai Love and Chloë Sevigny x Opening Ceremony, and for after-hours examples, check out Vionnet‘s royal blue, long-sleeved frock, or the framboise silk gown by Sophie Theallet that Karolina Kurkova wore to the Ischia Global Film Festival. (In other news: There is an Ischia Global Film Festival.) Why we like these dresses: Well-placed cutouts highlight a part of the body that doesn’t usually require hours of upkeep at the gym. As Donna Karan famously said, “Shoulders are the one place a woman will never get fat—so show ‘em!”

    Cutout shoulders look like you are going clubbing, and not a look that I would wear just because it is in right now.
