Nothing says subtle sexy like a flash of skin and after eating healthy and logging all those man hours at the gym, showing it off without going full on skank is almost a prerequisite.
A bit of toned midriff here, a flash of thigh there, impressive clavicle action peeking out….maybe even a bit of side boob. Covering up while letting a bit hang out is the new black.
The best designer representation of the classy with a side of elegant trashy trend is definitely Cushnie et Ochs.

The design duo of Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs are the undisputed masters of the game of form-fitting silhouettes and cutout detailed frocks.

Hollywood is here for these geniuses, and celebrities from Alicia Keys to Ashley Madekwe have been seen in their creations.
As usual we bring it down home to show the Nigerian designers who are constantly bang on trend and re-inventing Nigerian fashion constantly.
The front runner of architectural avant-garde designs has to be Meena who has interpreted cut-outs beautifully in ways that still stay true to the trend while taking into cognizance our more conservative leanings.
Meena’s collection for the Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2012 runway was a smorgasbord of elegance and understated sexiness.
Nigerian celebrities have proven to be stalwart fans as is evidenced by stylist; Ezinne Chinkata and milliner; Ene Maya Lawani showing up and showing out in Meena cut-outs.

With all these minute flashes of skin, it is clear the cut-out is having its sexy little moment.
