July 6, 2023 7 Looks: Cut Out Dresses for Summer

Cut out dresses were made for mid to late summer, when your summer event calendar heats up as much as the outdoor temps.

The cut outs add an unexpected touch to a dress, especially a long maxi dress with lots of fabric. And maybe it’s just our imagination, but the cut outs seem to keep us cooler.

We found so many pretty cut out dresses in our search for photo inspiration, but we narrowed it down to these 7 that really stood out. They show the broad range of textiles and dress styles you can find, from ribbed to strappy to special occasion to bright prints.

Keep scrolling to see all 7 of our picks, then stop into your neighborhood Crossroads store to find your own. Or, if you have a pre-loved cut out dress that no longer suits your style, bring it in to our buyers at the selling counter. You may walk away with cash or store credit!
