For this year’s party, you can consider ditching your usual chiffon/prom dresses or those sequin numbers. One dress-up idea I have for you to experiment is this year’s season trend: the Cut-Outs.
Indeed, the Cut-Out style has proliferated most of the trendy pieces this Summer and now they are “invading” the party frocks. If you would like to explore something chic and flirty this year, here are some dresses worth considering.
You have already made a bold statement with the cut-out patterns, so neutralise that with the evergreen Black hue for your dress (pun intended).

The “Hi-Lo” skirt trend is raging and I managed to snag this comfy shirt dress for casual days out. Matched it with an edgy crystal necklace and my new electric blue clutch and voila, time to rock and roll.

Remember some time last year, several local designers designed one-of-the-kind red dresses for charity in a movement known as “Go Red for Women“?
Now, at the other part of the globe, in the US, 22 internationally-acclaimed designers contributed 22 specially-designed black dresses for an auction, where proceeds would benefit the cancer societies in the US and France. The campaign was initiated by Swarovski Elements, so all these dresses are embellished with crystals!
Fendi’s apron dress is made of patent nappa sheepskin and the front and back panels are bling-bling with crystal rivets.
