We've seen (and loved!) the cut-out dress trend for awhile now, but we found a new twist (heh) on the summery staple—a frock that's tied right in the middle. Bloggers everywhere can't stop sporting these midriff-baring mini dresses, and we're sooo not mad. We can't think of a cuter or more practical way to stay cool on the hottest of summer days, so let's check some of our favorite looks, shall we?
Brandhyze Stanley of Frugal-Nomics
Blog: frugal-nomics.com. Twitter: @MyFrugalnomics.
Brandhyze's blog is filled with tons of inspiring AND affordable outfits that we lovelovelove. We're totally jealous of her great thrifty finds (see: Her Marc by Marc Jacobs score from TJMaxx), and her beauty game is out of this world. For her twisted dress look, she wore a light pink Topshop frock and cropped denim vest paired with a layered chain necklace, stacked bangles, black ankle booties, and a pop of red on her lips.
Anastasia Siantar of Brown Platform
Blog: brownplatform.com. Twitter: @anazsiantar.
There's a reason why Anastasia calls her blog "Brown Platform"—her shoes are always out of this WORLD amazing. Here, her leopard print Romwe booties are the star of the show paired with a black LOVE twisted cut-out dress, long Yes You beige crochet cape, and a brown Chain Reaction fringe necklace. She finished her look with a high side pony, some serious bang-age and a bright pink pout. Perfect!
Anna Wiklund of Anna Wii
Blog: annawii.blogg.se. Twitter: @Annawiiswe.
We're not gonna lie—Anna from Sweden is perfect. One scroll through her blog, and you'll wonder if that blonde-haired-blue-eyed gal is even human! She always dresses to emphasize her long legs, and we're SO on board with that. For her twisted waist dress look, she wore a LOVE feather print frock with sheer polka dot tights, beige T-strap Jeffrey Campbell platforms, and a Lady Marshmallow chain headpiece.
