Better When Cut

Covet, Spring 2010

Got a part of your arm you think is exceptional? Love the way it ripples with tender muscle when you reach for your take-out salad up on the cafe counter?
Do you work out religiously trying to keep the underarm dingle dangle from happening? Are you a painted lady who loves to show off her tribal arm tats?

You get it.

The trend towards cut outs along your arm is here and you can boast about what you like most. I’ve written recently about designers’ current fascination with showing shoulder skin, so of course the arms had to be next.

The great thing abut this trend is that it’s almost your whole outfit. But, like a bold accessory, it needs room to breathe. Try pairing it with something simple and streamlined.
Me? I’ll be wearing it with my favorite skinny jeans and ruched boots so I look tough and sexy. What? You wanna mess with me?!
