So I realize that cut-outs are a major trend this season. And I actually like the look on certain dresses. Cut-outs, when placed correctly, can make an outfit look super flattering and unique.
However, when used inappropriately, cut-outs can make a dress look like a total disaster. This dress from Lulu's (which I usually love) is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. Without the ridiculous amount of cut-outs, the dress would be fabulous. Even with a couple, classily placed cut-outs, it'd be great for a night out.
But when you go over-the-top with it, you end up looking like an idiot. As my boyfriend said, " That's a dress?! It just looks like ugly lingerie". It's not the type of thing that should be worn in public.
This is a perfect example of why I'm not usually a fan of passing trends. With each and every trend that goes by, there are always going to be crazy people, and designers, who take way it too far. And there will always be the trend-whores (there's simply no nicer way to say it), who will wear anything that even remotely resembles a trend. Especially if it's overdone.
The bottom line? When trying out trends, it's fine to be a little unique and push it a little. But take a look in a god damn mirror!! Before you go buying dresses that look like they've been torn apart, think about whether or not you look stupid. Or I'll send a hit man after you.
That is all.
