Slay through this season with a surprisingly wearable take on the trend that's shaping transitional looks from boardroom to evening glamour.

Cutouts, in various shapes and sizes, made for key talking points of the Louis Vuitton spring 2017 show. But instead of daring and suggestive, they presented a tasteful collection of experimental high fashion that were relatable yet assertive. The focus was on power suits, asymmetric draped jersey numbers, and sheer, shimmery Eighties-inspired dresses.

 Call it a strong message of female empowerment or the liberation from restrained garments – the collection, in essence, is a tribute to Parisienne style and the creative identities of the Right Bank and the Left Bank. One takeaway from styling these ultra smooth getups would be a pair of boots. 

 Here’s how the body-revealing trend can relate to your everyday wardrobe, in 10 key looks.
