 Peek A Boo… I See You

Polka dot halter dress from Curbside Couture Hello Fashion Diggers!

Now that the weather is getting warmer, you may want to subtly bare a little skin. Play peek-a-boo by revealing flashes of skin with cut out panels. Shop the FashionDig site for day and evening dresses, swimwear and vintage jewelry that celebrate this fashion trend.

This season cutouts are all the rage. For day, AnniePanties has a shocking pink mini dress with choker style collar that leaves the bodice exposed for a terrific cutout look, or take a dip in the pool with a crimson bathing suit that has openings on the sides. For those who prefer panels of cutouts in the back, an 80s black and white polka dotted halter dress from Curbside Couture maybe what you are seeking.

For those who want a more conservative approach to this fashion style, a quiet flash of skin can reveal quite a bit of sex appeal. Orlando Vintage has a glamorous 40s navy rayon dress that has a high collar adorned with silver beads and rhinestones and underneath a keyhole neckline to reveal a delicate sliver of skin.

If you prefer to experiment with this fashion look in your accessories, a great piece of vintage jewelry will help to capture this look. A gold metal slightly hammered cuff bracelet from Mid Century Chic has four circular spirals that use positive and negative space to enhance the glimpses of flesh. Prefer to have this design dangle from your neck, a Modernist copper teardrop pendant at Metro Retro may be that skin exposure you are craving. This fabulous pendant encases two circular cutouts and an abstract silver Arp like shape swings from it.

Open up your mind to the endless possibilities of structural openings that have captured the fashion spotlight. Bare a little skin for all to see.
