Cut it Out

Sweet and sexy cutout dresses for day and night

In innovative art and fashion, there’s value in negative space.

Sometimes what makes a dress is what’s not actually there. When you want to step it up a notch in the dress department, instead of going for a shorter hem or lower neckline, look for a frock with clever cutouts. Subtly sexy and tastefully chic, a cutout dress will add an alluring air to your look without the annoyance of adjusting it every five minutes. See a handful of our favorite cutout styles for day and night below, from an a-line denim dress to a black lacy slip.

LOTD: Chris Hemsworth

The GQ cover star looks sharp in a casual suit

With multiple films coming out this year, including Blackhat and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a skill for slick style, it’s safe to say that Chris Hemsworth is on a roll. One of his latest looks says it all. Spotted in New York City this month, he wore a subtle blue suit with a gray shirt, dress shoes and a classic pair of aviators, proving that great style stems from keeping it simple. Take a cue from Chris and keep in mind that a more casual suit can easily be worn from day to night with the simple swap of a shirt. Copy this look with our similar items below for the next time you want to look extra clean cut.

Daytime male dress also changed. Nineteenth-century’s women’s fashions, dominated by the corset and bustle, accentuated the female’s bosom and backside. In short her sexuality was magnified, but at the same time men’s sexuality was hidden. Male fashions no longer drew attention to the legs and thighs. The tight breeches and stockings were replaced by the 1830s in England by looser fitting trousers. And the “full fall” of the breeches was replaced by the 1860s with the more discreet buttoned fly front. For formal occasions the middle-class male donned a black three-piece suit. For every day dress, drab grays, blues, and browns replaced lighter colors and coarser wools the finer fabrics. Recourse by men to corsets and cosmetics became a laughing matter. Swords were replaced by walking sticks; ostentatious jewelry by utilitarian watches and fobs. By the twentieth century, the only hints of color were found in the tie or cravat, which led the eye away from the genitals up to the man’s head. A glance at a portrait of Marx or Engels reminds us that even political radicals donned the new uniform of the bourgeoisie. The tone had been set by the American revolutionaries’ contempt for “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and the French sans-culottes of 1789, who attacked as reactionary and pretentious fops men who affected too much attention to their dress. In response the pose of the dandy was taken up by such decadent artists and bohemians as Baudelaire, Barbey d’Aurveilly, Wilde, Swinburne, and Beardsley who wished to parade their disdain for middle-class proprieties. The extent to which Western society sought to hide the male body was perhaps best evidenced in nineteenth-century artistic representations. Female nudes were found in libraries and town halls, representing everything from “Liberty” and “Electricity” to “Slavery” and “Morphine.” The nude male virtually disappeared from the painter’s canvas. Visitors to galleries could imagine a no more shocking idea than that of a naked man as a subject for artistic representation.

Sugar Baby Style Summer ‘16

A LOT of you beauties ask me what to wear on a POT date in the summer, so I actually reached out to my SD and asked him what he likes that I’ve worn this summer. So here we go:

1.For Casual (lunches, coffee dates, meet and greets)

~Summer Fun~

I always get criticized for looking too “business like” on dates (I blame this on me having lived in DC for too long), but since you’re young and fun I highly recommend you play that up. Bright colors, show some leg (but not too much) (; and it’ll be easy for him to spot you that first time you meet.

2. Daytime dates

I recommend dressing youthful but fashion forward ( I HOPE you’re going somewhere chic) show off your edgier side with a constructed outfit but natural free flowing hair and a classic pair of sun glasses. Especially in a city you will blend in, yet your gorgeous look will make you stand out and your POT won’t be able to keep his eyes (or hands off of you). At the same time though, ALWAYS keep it classy (:

3. Nigh time dates

My personal favorite, this is where you can really show off your sexy side (if you choose to). My daddy LOVES when I wear white in the summer (I have an olive complexion) and a jumpsuit will FOR SURE show off your body. Again, it’s classic but sexy. The white hue will make you stand out, but with natural makeup and flowy hair you’ll look like a goddess

I hope this helps and best of luck babies!!!

Eddie Redmayne inspires Britain’s men to dust off their suits

Office workers are abandoning “daytime pyjamas”, as smartly-dressed actors  fuel demand for formalwear

Formalwear sales have soared as office workers have abandoned “dress-down  Fridays” to emulate Redmayne, according to the latest figures from  Debenhams. The Hollywood actor, who has modelled for the fashion house  Burberry, was last month named the best-dressed man by GQ magazine.

Sales of suits rose by 52 percent at the department store last month compared  to the same period last year. Demand for its ties and formal footwear  increased by more than a quarter, and it sold 22 percent more collared  shirts.

The kind of news I love to be associated with Eddie, that of a role model.

Happy Sunday from #HeathersOrlando rehearsal!
Today was absolutely a day where I did not feel like putting pants on so I pulled a fab @tatyanaboutique button up dress with pockets! For daytime I dressed it down with minimal hair/makeup/neutral flip flops but this dress can easily dress it up if heading out!
