Cut-Out Knit Tops

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our entire disclaimer here.

If there were only one look this season that anyone can adopt, it is the unexpected peek-a-boo of skin from a cut-out knit top. Typically this more sexy look was reserved for cocktail dresses or hot weather pieces, yet, not this season. As mentioned as one of the top trends for fall, these out of the box cut-outs, keyhole, off the shoulder, or one shoulder items are on point this season. These attractive tops have transitioned into heavier weight knits and sweaters as colder weather approaches. Look for them in fine to chunky knits in an array of fall hues.

If hesitant about wearing these flirtatious pieces for virtual meetings or a trip to the in-laws, then top it off with a cardigan or lightweight jacket, so you only reveal a hint of exposed skin. As you will see below, there are several appropriate options for almost any occasion (even workwear). Yet, there are beautiful pieces full of allure at the end of the other spectrum and some have just a hint of sexy. Enter the new cut-out knit, with flashes of skin that prove a little less, is a lot more.

What I Am Wearing

I relish my new Vince Camuto cut-out knit, yet I think my husband loves it even more! This metallic long sleeve top will be the perfect accompaniment to many stay at home date dinners in my foreseeable future. I appreciate that I can also wear it with a bra without it showing. I purchased it in black, yet it is only available in deep red, which is also a stunning color (especially for the holidays). The description says it runs large. I disagree; this fitted top runs TTS. Do not worry if you want black; I will showcase other options below.

My Articles Of Society jeans gives you that well-worn look from day one. These super stretchy, skinny jeans have dimensional fading, shredded abrasions, and raw hem. I suggest ordering one size down from your typical size. As I mentioned, they are ‘super’ stretchy, which will make them feel roomy. However, it is also what makes them exceptionally comfortable without losing their shape throughout the day. As a bonus, they are under $65.

This BP. open stitch cardigan I nabbed during the last Nordstrom anniversary sale. It is a casual cardigan you can add to almost any outfit to give it a little enhancement on a more relaxed day. I bought one in every color available at the time. Currently, it is on sale for only $24.50 with two colors remaining. It runs large; I ordered two sizes down.

My Vince Camuto booties are no longer available, yet I linked to a similar style above. My Rag & Bone hobo bag is a nifty bag with a slouchy silhouette that expands into two compartments to fit all your essentials. It is an understated and minimal piece that belongs at any easygoing occasion. I really like the clip detail and adjustable strap, which can be worn in multiple ways: over your shoulder, across your body, or safe and tight under your arm.

Cut-Out Knit Summary & Extras

With wearing more fabric like never before (#2020 facemask), it only seems appropriate to even score and take it away in other areas. I am waiting for a designer to make a matching mask from the cut-out material that is included with the knit top.
