At first glance, cut-out dresses may look like they're best left to the young and super-slim, but you don't have to show all your midriff to give this trend a go unless you want to. There are plenty of different takes on the cut-out trend that'll conceal the areas you're less confident about if you're not usually one to flash the flesh.

The bold and brave can go for waist-level slits and gaps that show off abs and tummies, but there are also 'cold shoulder' sleeve cut-outs if you'd rather not show your belly, or little peekaboo holes just at the centre front that show only tiniest bit of flesh - these are great thrown over a bikini on holiday. I particularly love Boohoo's instant double-denim approach - a dress that looks like a tied shirt and full skirt. Roksanda Ilincic also offers us a more sophisticated approach with a narrow slit on her cool abstract-inspire sheath dress.
