I have found the Cut Out Dress to be one of the growing fashion rages to wear for senior pictures. I LOVE the fun and whimsical style of the Cut Out Dress, BUT, it can be a little risqué. Every senior who comes to me for their senior portraits know that I am all about modesty. As a mom of boys...I know how their minds work even though most of us girls are clueless.
I want to show a few different Cut Out Dress styles that embrace the trend by keeping it classy and fun without crossing the modesty line.
I love this cute little dress. The cut outs are on the side - and you can reveal them or cover them with a cute denim jacket. Either way, the outfit is adorable!
This white dress is a very classic take on the trend. The cut outs on the shoulders add fun to the timeless style of this dress. Paired with a pop of color in the shoes and large jewelry, this would be a fabulous choice for senior pictures or a night out with your boyfriend.
This dress has more cut outs than the other two, but as they are all on the back, it is a great way to fully embrace this trend while remaining classy and mysterious. I love this dress in red - and it would be fun to add the sunglasses to a few images at your senior session.
The BOHO feel of this dress makes me want to dance! It is a great combination of two huge trends. The hat totally makes this!
I see variations on this dress quite often during senior sessions. The cut out on the sleeves are very flattering. This dress has a mesh panel - but it is designed to be just a hint rather than a blatant cutout on the midriff. From experience, I can tell you that dads don't like cutouts on the midriff...
As always, if in doubt, give me a call or text me a picture of the dress you are thinking of and I will be happy to give you feedback before your senior session. If you love this style, please do embrace it to add some trendiness to your session - let's just try to stay on the modest end of this trend....
