My New Favorite Fashion Look: The Cutout Shoulder

I am a firm believer in buying multiples of clothing staples. When I find something that works, I'll buy it in every color. Such is the case, recently, with the cutout shoulder. I've discovered that, while short sleeves or sleeveless tops can call attention to less-than-perfect upper arms, the cutout shoulder always makes that particular part of the body look unbelievably super slim. It stands to reason, then, that I would stock my closet with the stuff! (At last count I had four cutout shoulder tops and dresses, but I'll soon be adding more.) Check out some of my favorites after the jump.

Forever 21 Sublimated Stripes Top
The faded print on top of ombre blue stripes makes this one to watch.
$17.80 at

Addison Story Stripe Twist Cutout Tee
The uneven hemline makes for a truly flattering silhouette.
$78 at

Miss Ferriday Portofino Cutout Kimono Top
The vibrant teal hue is offset by feminine lace detailing at the neckline -- perfect for a night on the town.
$151 at

Bebe Chain Trim Colorblock Top
Orange and pink don't seem like a color combination that works -- until you see them together in this juicy-bright top.
$49 at

Tibi Embellished Silk Blouse
I've been eying this top for months. From the jeweled embellishment to the gorgeous mauve hue, it must be mine.
$144 at
