Summer is coming up fast, and there’s one dress trend that we predict is going to be at the top of everyone’s shopping lists. Not only are cut-outs super cute, but they’re also quite functional when you think about it (*cough, cough* the scorching temps). We’re here to let you know that you can and should hop on the cut-out dress bandwagon ASAP.

When picking your perfect cut-out dress, it all comes down to the colorway and silhouette. Neutral shades like white and black always work, but we keep seeing tons of pink everywhere. However, both options are just as timeless as they are trendy this season.

It also doesn’t matter what kind of cut-outs you opt for, so long as they’re there. There’s no right way to cut-out! While celebs like Dua Lipa have been spotted in pieces that feature a few tiny holes all over, brands like Target and Zara are making a case for larger cut-outs across the ribcage and midriff. It’s honestly up to you and what you feel the most comfortable in—and trust me, there are options for whatever look you prefer!

Ahead, shop 13 options that fit the bill for the warmer months and come at an array of price points. Prepare to look—and feel—your best this summer in the season’s sexiest trend.
