On Trend: Spring Straps and Cutouts

By Katherine Hahn for

Want to show a little skin this spring? Cutouts and crazy straps are red hot right now. The right design can jazz up even the most basic fabrics. This is a bandwagon we totally encourage hopping on, so take a look at what we found!

Nasty Gal Urban Outlander Dress

This little white dress with the funky straps is a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll and 100 percent sexy. Add some wedges and some fun bracelets into the mix, and you've got a killer going-out look.


Nasty Gal, $98

Charlotte Russe Neon Bow-Back Strapless Dress

The cutout in the back of this dress is irresistibly feminine. It's just sexy enough without showing too much, and the bow is a perfect kiss of decoration. This is a dress to turn heads -- and who can resist neon?


Charlotte Russe, $26.99

Forever 21 Far East Strappy Cami

The thin, criss-crossing straps at the back of this top are ridiculously in right now. This top is perfect with casual cut-off shorts and sandals when summer's on the way. And the tribal-inspired pattern? We love it. Great price, too!


Forever 21, $11.80

Tobi Riviera Bodycon Dress

We're loca about the jagged neckline of this smoking hot dress. It's a new twist on the classic red dress -- so unique that you don't even need a necklace!

Imagine how many jaws would drop if you walked into the bar in this little number. (Yeah, a lot.)


Tobi, $39

Free People Tatiana Sexy Black Mini

The title says it all. The back of this dress is about as sexy as you can get and totally on trend. We love thick crossed straps. This dress will take you through spring and into summer -- black dresses are always in style!


Free People, $78
