As we’ve already pointed out, less is more when it comes to this season’s big trends. Specifically, cut-outs. It’s a craze that completely makes sense when you put it into perspective–we’re all pretty eager to shed the many layers of puffer coats and heavy knits that are currently swamping us. Now here’s your chance for some stylish ventilation: the midriff cut-out.
It stands out from the other “naked” microtrends we’ve spotted and reported on last year, in that the abdomen is the main star. From big designers like Khaite and Off-White to Dion Lee and Cult Gaia, the midriff cut-out has marked its place on some of spring’s coolest dresses and tops. The detail is gaining traction in a big way, so it’s only a matter of time before it blows up on the Instagram and celebrity styling front.
In anticipation of its furor, we’ve gathered a ton of midriff cut-out pieces you can buy now to get you right for the season ahead. Whether you’re looking for a bodysuit to elevate all of your basic jeans and sweatpants or a chic dress to get gussied up, we promise you’ll want to add these gems to your cart.
