If this past Bridal Fashion Week showed us one thing, it’s that bridal designers are continuing to push the envelope on traditional wedding dresses. From short party dresses to dramatic puffy sleeves, bridal trends are shifting in a bold direction, and we are so here for it. One trend we currently cannot take our eyes off of is cut-out wedding dresses. Think keyhole necklines, open backs, and subtly revealing midriffs.
To note, cut-out dresses aren’t just about sex-appeal and baring all—we’re not talking about looks that will send the grandparents into complete shock. This trend is all about confidence and owning your body. We are also loving this trend because it works for everything from a formal city wedding to a more laid-back, beachfront affair. Or, it could make for a fun and flirty second look post-ceremony. Whatever the vibe of your wedding is, there’s a cut-out dress to match
We’ve put together a list of 25 cut-out dresses we are currently coveting—from tastefully daring to more conservative. Read on to see gowns for every price point, style, and body type.
