How to Wear Sexy Cut-Outs Well, by Jamie Chung in Cushnie Et Ochs

How to Work A Cut-Out, and Stay Chic, by Jamie Chung

While flashing too much can make an entire outfit (well, to put it politely) totally tacky, the art of revealing just enough skin can make something seriously sexy, as evidenced by Jamie Chung in a cut-out Cushnie et Ochs cocktail dress. The actress was the standout at yesterday's Premium Rush premiere in NYC, opting for one of the label's A/W '12 dresses — the kind of appearance that makes us wish we saw the up-and-comer hitting the red carpet more often. Feeling inspired? These are the must-know tricks to getting sexy just right and having the same knockout effect at your next cocktail fete.

  • For Jamie, it all starts with a killer dress that highlights her svelte frame with a cut-out right at the midriff. You don't have to select the same tummy-baring cut; the key is finding the right cut-out to flatter your figure. Show off your shoulders with a cut-out back, bare your arms and your neckline with a one-shoulder, or reveal a slim middle with side cut-outs. Just be sure that, like Jamie, you balance your own skin-baring with a longer hemline to keep the look from getting too risqué.
  • Don't overwhelm a brilliant hue and statement silhouette with over-the-top details. Jamie lets her dress take the focus, adding only a pair of simple drop earrings and a couple of minimalist bangles so that all eyes are on that gorgeous dress (just like you'll want them to be).
  • Lastly, we love that Jamie juxtaposed a playful, sexy cut-out dress with ladylike pumps. Her Zara heels lend sophistication, but still speak to the dress's modern feel with their cool, metallic cap-toes.
