When a trend first hits the runway it’s oft done to such an extreme us regular folks could easily dismiss it. When first cut outs made a debut was just such an example. This IND Styler is no prude, but cut outs on my clothes? I was skeptical it could be a trend that worked for anyone over a certain age or size. But, as with many trends, the sartorial gods shined down and worked it into even the most everyday pieces for a little something that’s totally on trend and yet totally doable.

The key, you see, is placing the cut outs in the most discreet of spots — like this top from Vanessa V. that can be worn with a regular old bra. A basic if ever there was one, but with just that hint of trend.


Over at kiki, a new dress in contrasting neutrals packed two trends in one — cut outs and leather. Whether worn with the season’s flat gladiators or mile high wedges, it’s a dress that just could find its way into IND Style’s new “Ageless” feature so appropriate it is for young gals like this models or those with a bit more wisdom under their belts.

At Herringstone they crammed three trends in one — lace, cut outs and white. White, white, white is huge for spring. And lace is popping up everywhere. Lace plus white is a great way to make the oft sexy detail daytime worthy.
