1) Getting a summer breeze in odd places.

Today is actually about cutouts. Cutouts have resurfaced in the strangest of places. I'm not talking about lace or crochet, but those unexpected cutouts that add intrigue to the outfit. A cutout suggests danger. It suggests you may have ripped your dress and improvised with a needle and thread to put it back together. It suggests imperfection.
Designers and photographers adore imperfection. It's about that gap tooth, the doe eyes, the bushy brows. It's about asymmetry. Imbalance. Perfection doesn't exist anywhere other than our boring imaginations. If we dig a little deeper, we find ourselves drawn to the weird a la Marc Jacobs.
So, let out your inner Marc Jacobs and take a look at some inspiring cutout pieces.
