Summer is the time to flaunt that tan and a slightly more toned physique. It is probably the only time of the year you can show some flesh and leg mileage and pull off a cut-out body-con dress.
We found in the back of our closet a colour-block dress by New York designer Yigal Azrouel in white, mango and nude with cut-out details at the back. Ideal for a summer clubbing night or drinks at a rooftop bar, the cut-out body-con dress can look quite elegant and edgy unlike it’s early year 2000 predecessors.
Interestingly enough we found plenty of sports- inspired options that hug the body and show some flesh through clever cut-outs without falling into vulgar territory.
We also found the best way to elongate tanned legs was with strappy nude sandals by Aquazzura (in these pictures we are wearing the Amazon sandals) , Gianvito Rossi or Alaia; a simple envelope clutch by Marni keeps the whole look minimal and fuss-free.
