In the days of Shakespeare it was sexy for a woman to reveal even just an ankle or her shoulders. Sometimes we long for that era when everything was more romantic, less obvious and in your face. Collections this season have been showing pieces with little cutouts here and there, revealing a bit of skin just enough to inspire epic romance!
Cut outs are so big this season, they’re everywhere you look! Dressy shirts with open shoulders, dresses with cut outs around the waist, trousers, shorts and much else!
In the spirit of romantic theater, this photoshoot was taken at Tel Aviv’s HaBima Theater which is home to some of Israel’s most wonderful plays. The theater was designed by architect Ram Karmi and both the building itself and its courtyard feature geometric elements which provide different perspectives on the urban space, and different gathering area for all the public to enjoy.
Rony wore a button down magenta patterned dress with shoulder cutouts. She wore the dress with leopard print slipper flats, quilted bag, and big gold cuffs and rings to set off the “sweetness” of the dress. The A shaped dress is very flattering and is a must for every closet! It creates a feminine look for even the most straight-lined shapes.
Vera wore a black and white patterned tunic with shoulder cutouts, which she wore with black leggings, black strappy sandals, and a big golden chain. The tunic is shapeless and baggy so it goes really well with leggings for a skinny leg effect. The strappy sandals compliment the graphic pattern of the tunic.
Cut outs are a great way of showing skin in a demure unexpected way without wearing anything too short or too tight. This trend is very flattering on all body types. Just beware of cutouts that reveal too much!
A little DIY tip for cutouts: take an old buttoned up shirt (your dad’s or brothers’ shirts would be awesome) and cut the area you want according to the stitch line so the cut will look good!
Have a great week!
