For some people, getting dressed sexy means showing as much skin as possible. For me, the sexy outfit makes the show just enough to get people guessing. Even better, clothing is a way of showing just a little bit of skin in a very subtle way: “Now you see it, now you don’t”. To achieve this look, wearing a black cropped dress would be a good choice. To show you how amazing an outfit like this can look, I’ve rounded up some of the best black cut out outfit ideas and I’m going to share them with you now.
Knee-length dress with black sheath and cutouts at the waist
To start the list, I’m going to show you a black knee length dress with a creative cut. It has multiple cutouts at the waist that make it look almost like a two-piece dress. To style this sexy black dress you can wear it with black heels for a fantastic look that is suitable for cocktail parties and proms.
Criss Cross Neck Dress with Black Waist
Sometimes, even when we try hard to stay in shape, there are parts of the body that we can’t really shape the way we want them to be. The only exception can be the waist. I still haven’t seen people who haven’t been able to get rid of their belly fat when they actually try to do it brick by brick. For those of you who take pride in your slim waist, here is a low-key sexy dress that is perfect for you to show off a bit. It’s a black cross-neck dress that shows just a little of your belly. Wear it with silver open toe heels and you are ready for a cocktail party.
Black dress with long sleeves and a side neckline
Let’s keep seeing some low-key sexy dresses that have necklines at the waist. This time it’s a black, long-sleeved, figure-hugging mini dress with side cutouts. Pair it with black ballerinas to complete this minimal look.
Cold Shoulder Sweetheart Neckline Cut Out Dress
Now let’s take a look at this extremely sexy black dress. It’s a cold shoulder dress with a sweetheart neckline. Pair this open toe white heel dress to complete this eye-catching and amazing outfit that will make you stand out from the crowd at cocktail parties and proms.
Black, figure-hugging dress with mini side cutouts
This black figure-hugging dress has only two mini side cutouts. You can see how these mini cutouts actually take the dress to another level. Without her the dress would still have looked good, but nowhere as beautiful and sexy. To make the outfit look even more elegant, wear a silver sparkling choker necklace and a pair of silver open toe heels with ankle straps.
Black open chest neckline dress
I’ve seen a lot of open chest dresses that really show too much skin and definitely don’t look good. However, this black open chest dress uses multiple necklines to lead into the subtle open chest design, which makes this dress look elegant and sexy. Simply combine the dress with silver open toe heels or black open toe heels and you’re good to go.
Black drop shoulder dress with a striped neckline under the shoulders
This dress can make you show a little too much skin. You have to judge this for yourself as the same dress can look very different on another lady. This dress is a back and shoulder dress with a horizontally striped neckline that almost makes it look like a strapless dress. Black strappy sandals would be a good choice for the shoes.
Deep maxi dress with V-neck
These are the types of elegant dresses designed almost exclusively for proms. With the cutouts, this black maxi dress with deep V-neck looks even more unique and sexy. Team the dress with black heels with ankle straps and a silver cuff bracelet for a particularly elegant touch.
Black asymmetrical dress with one sleeve
For those of you who are trying to dress ladylike all the time, how about some fun and challenging yourself dressing up in style for your next cocktail party. For a stylish look, you can wear a black asymmetrical one-sleeve dress with a neckline that seems to be placed randomly. Combine the dress with black strappy heels to push the envelope even further.
Black midi dress with a cross neckline
For those of you who are really against showing skin at all, here is a lovely dress that all you need to do is show a super small part of your belly that might get you started. It is a black midi dress with a crossed neckline. Pair it with black ankle strap heels to complete the outfit.

Black halter dress
A fun fact about cut out dress is that it can appear like a two piece dress at times. This black halter neck dress is a good example of this. This is a casual dress indeed, especially when you compare it to others on this list. I would recommend that you wear light pink sandals with the dress to complete a beautiful outfit that is perfect for dating and dining.
Asymmetrical high split maxi dress
Here is a stylish black asymmetrical high split maxi dress. Even the neckline at the waist looks asymmetrical. Simply combine the dress with black strappy heels to complete this elegant and cool outfit.
Midi cutout dress with one sleeve
For another asymmetrical look, there is a one-sleeved midi dress with a neckline at the waist. Team the dress with black ballerinas for a nice look.
Black bodycon cutout mini dress with leather jacket
Very often when you are just entering the party room of a cocktail party you will want to wear a jacket with your dress. The black leather jacket goes best with a black mini dress with a neckline. Team the jacket with black leather boots for a stylish look.
Black maxi dress with floppy hat
For an artistic and creative look, you can wear this black maxi dress with a floppy hat. A black floppy hat is not that easy to style, and this outfit definitely shows a good example of how to wear it in style.
