cut out tops

One of our favorite ways to cheat a look is to turn a T shirt and jeans moment into a full outfit with details like these.

With event calendars coming back online, we often find ourselves glad to be invited, but exhausted by the idea of dressing up. These cut out pieces will help you achieve the most with minimal effort.

We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite cut outs T’s, tops and a couple of dresses, all from brands with responsible or sustainable values (as always!). These looks range from demure to risque and we’re here for the full spectrum…

(Pieces named below, left to right) 

LNA Bowie Tee | LNA’s super-soft tops are made right here in L.A. We frequently check in on their latest styles for easy basics that feel good on and look much more elevated than their comfort levels betray!

LNA Royce Rib Top | Another pick from female-founded brand, LNA, this ribbed top provides the perfect amount of flourish for a basic that can be worn any which way. We love this look paired with great denim.

CITIZENS OF HUMANITY Iris Long Sleeve Cut Out Top | This may be our favorite cut out top of all time. Just one strategically placed cut out turns this effortlessly comfortable top into a near-glamorous moment.

Cuyana French Terry Puff Sleevelette | This adorable ‘sleevelette’ from Cuyana is shown two ways above, proving it’s extreme versatility in creating looks of all kinds. If you’re obsessed with all your matching bra and leggings sets, try this puff-sleeved topper to keep the look intact while still adding a layer of cozy.

Citizens of Humanity Rianne Top | Consider this top a cheat for the office. With a work-appropriate cut out just add the shoulder, this Citizens of Humanity look gives hints of powersuit in t-shirt form.

AGOLDE Sliced Body Suit | Another denim brand we love who is turning out great tops lately is AGOLDE. Peep their pinchwaist jeans here. This body suit is oh-so-chic paired with denim of any color for dinner or drinks out on the town.

REFORMATION True Dress | Lastly, leave it to Reformation to take cut outs in a sexier direction. This sustainably made dress is nearly a two piece set, but a bit easier to wear and keep things in place.
