Funky, geometric cutouts have a way of transforming easy, otherwise simple, pieces into high impact wardrobe warriors. Check out Fashion Fabrics Club’s top 5 cutout pieces (and the fabrics to wear them in) that you should be rocking in these last weeks of summer.

The A LineThe A-Line

The timeless cotton jersey A-line dress gets a little jolt of sex appeal when cutouts get involved. The best place for the little bit of skin exposure is right at the waistline—it heightens the hourglass effect of the already slimming silhouette.

The MaxiThe Maxi

Since there is so much fabric involved in the maxi, having a few cutouts in the mix keeps things breezy in the steamiest of summer days. Take your favorite floor-length chiffon maxi dress and give it a shakeup by taking out a panel from the back. Still totally conservative, but with much more breathing room.

The PeplumThe Peplum

The peplum top has a natural dainty, feminine appeal. To give it a little shot of edginess, try inserting mesh cutouts in a variety of geometric shapes. It’s just the design element that gives the tried-and-true piece an element of right-now.

The ShiftThe Shift

Give the quintessential and oh-so-timeless shift dress an of-the-moment upgrade with fun cutouts right around the neckline. The shape will still stay true to form no matter what fabric your prefer—cotton, chiffon, even silk—while adding a little dose of new-age cool.

The Button DownThe Button Down

Cutouts give the borrowed-from-boys denim button down a dose of femininity. And a whole lot of effortless chic. Too attached to your mainstay? No problem. Visit your local Salvation Army, pick up an oversized version and simply cut out the shoulders. Or, even better, start from scratch with any of FFC’s denim fabrics.
