Yes, Cutouts Are Still a Trend—49 Pieces That Show What They Look Like in 2022

Anyone who follows the trends coming out of New York, Paris, London, and Milan can tell you that there’s one trend having a moment: cutouts. Typically, you’ll see a trend dominate if you’re lucky for maybe two seasons, but that’s not the case with cutouts as they first emerged back in 2020 and have since held a gorilla grip on the fashion set.

Of course, what’s made this trend relevant is how it comes in so many iterations. There’s everything from traditional oval and circle-shaped keyhole cutouts to down raunchy versions with holes up the side of the dress. There are more grown-up cutouts that give an almost corporate feel with clean-cut minimal lines, unique details like waist tie-ups and chains that elevate them from sultry to showing skin on the sly.

And then there’s the most recent iteration of this trend spotted on S/S 22 and F/W 22 runways, which display these almost never-ending cutouts. Basically, whatever way you want to wear this trend, you can, making cutouts undoubtedly the best trend to buy in 2022
