Kathryn’s cutout glamorous looks are a cut above the rest, and it’s time we get inspiration from her style for our next formal agenda
Who ever said Kathryn Bernardo doesn’t know how to take risks? Just like in her acting projects, we appreciate the actress’ timeline when it comes to daring her way into fashion. And now that she is older and readier than ever to take on more mature roles, she is also into elevating her style. Lately, it is all about strategic skin showing through cutouts.
There is a thin line that either classifies this type of dressing into a thoughtful or tacky fashion choice. When we are talking about a formal event, this takes careful consideration. Is it appropriate? How do we keep it sultry and classy? Luckily for us, we can add these looks from the actress as our next inspirations. MEGA Entertainment rounds up the ways we can cop her cutout ensembles for our not-so-very-good-girl looks.
Fronting the style
For her recent ASAP appearance as Philo, the A Very Good Girl actress donned a playful number from designer Marc Rancy. While we already love the dress’ sleeved in sheer moment with a solid bralette, the middle cuts at the torso area were the statement style of this piece. The closed bit just above the waist adds illusion to the design, giving the number a subtle cinched waist moment. Committing to the cutout structure, the designer also added a side slit that Kathryn carried definitely with chicness and class.
Cutting it sharp
Knots and twists are two of the ways cutouts manifest in pieces. This effect, coupled with the off-shoulder bare effect, keeps the art of skin showing modern yet classic. In their recent trip to Switzerland, Kathryn donned a black Ronny Kobo dress with these codes. Because of the dress’ knotted form, the top easily transformed the straight cut of the off-shoulder into a sweetheart neckline.
Siding with the waist
During the grand media conference for her upcoming film project, the Asia’s Superstar stood out from the rest of her cast members, and it’s not just because she was the only lady in white, courtesy of another Ronny Kobo gown. Giving the number a curvier structure, its knotted illusion accentuated the plunge gown’s floral appliqué as its centerpiece. Accentuating this sexier shape are the open sides extending towards the back for that sharper concave of the obliques. If you’re not ready with a frontal cutout moment, that side skin exposure is your next best bet.
Lining at the back
No one ever forms cuts without drawing lines, and for this Anthony Ramirez creation that Kathryn wore, cutouts came in intersecting ones. This line effect was mirrored at the front and back of the dress, adding an even bolder element to the red striking moment. This formal and glamorous approach to lingerie straps is a testament that going sexy is possible in formal events, as long as it’s executed tastefully.
