This trend has ridden the coat tails of the lace trend in fashion, and we couldn't love it more. "Cut Outs" refers to a technique applied to clothing in which intricate patterns and strategically placed holes are literally cut out into fabrics. This can done on dresses, shorts, you name it - although we've seen it mostly done on t-shirts (Mr P is full of them!). What we love about this trend is that it's firstly, super easy to follow, and secondly, it shows just the right amount of flesh - bordering on sexy and playful. Take a look and let us know what you think...
