It feels like summer is finally here, and that only means one thing: updating our new season wardrobes. Whether you love a mini, a maxi or a midi, one trend we can't get enough of right now is the cut-out dress.

We've seen them looking amazing on the likes of Maya Jama, Dua Lipa and Kendall Jenner, but they're not just tiny, barely-there pieces - the cut-out dress comes in many forms. Showing a little more skin than regular styles, they're playful and they keep you cool.
