How To Wear Side Cut Dress

If you are looking for a cocktail dress or a ball gown where you only need to show a little skin at your waist to look sexy and gorgeous, the side cut dress is a great choice. In fact, there is a primary purpose for me to write this blog post. It’s designed to show you that sometimes showing just a little bit of skin is enough to make you look better than those wearing deep v-neck dresses. I want to show you that “less is more”. I’ve gathered some of the best side cut dresses and put them in a list. Now let’s check it out.

Hot red bodycon dress with mini side cutouts


To start the list, here is a red bodycon dress. Note that the side cutouts are so small and subtle that they look both sexy and cute. Simply pair the dress with a pair of silver heels with an open toe strap to complete the outfit with an elegant touch.

Now let’s talk more about another low-key but nice looking dress with a side neckline. This is a knee length dress with a black sheath that also has very small cutouts on the sides. Wear a black open toe ankle strap for a minimal, all-black look.

Up to this point I’ve shown some flat side cut dresses that don’t have a backless or deep V-neckline to prove that you don’t have to show a lot of skin to look sexy. Now I hope you get the point and I am going to start mixing some extremely sexy dresses with some low key sexy dresses. This skater dress with a deep V-neckline and white side cutout is a very sexy dress. A great way to style it is to style it in an elegant and feminine way by wearing it with white open toe heels and a silver clutch bag made from sequins.
