If you’ve been toning your abs in the gym a’ la Miley Cyrus but aren’t quite ready to adopt her way of dressing just yet (it essentially involves a lot of skin and not much else… not actually “dressing” at all, come to think of it) then you can do so in a more subtle way: a cut out dress!

This also applies to you if you have a fab tan from your hols and you want some of your skin to poke through your clothes and shoes in a tasteful and on-trend way too.

And even if you don’t want to flash the flesh and literally just want to get on board with the trend for the heck of it, then we have items for that too: try a cut out belt or cuff…  dramatic, versatile and a great value for money; you’ll be wearing them season after season!
