While summer might have come to an end, cut-out dresses aren't going anywhere. We're not sure whether it's down to the chokehold Euphoria has us in, or Kendall Jenner's questionable-but-covetable wedding guest dress, but our desire to bare a little skin and introduce some cut-outs into our wardrobe has never been stronger. 

If skin-baring styles feel like the kind of thing you'd generally steer clear of, we're here to convince you to reassess. There are many different ways to do—and wear—cut-out dresses that don't just scream skin, from deconstructed details to unconventional slits and peekaboo backs.  

Below, we've rounded up our favourite finds, making sure to cater to various occasions, styles, and skin-baring comfort levels. So, whether you're looking for something sleek and strategically placed, or you've got something a little more spicy in mind, keep scrolling to shop 27 of our favourite cut-out dresses below.
