With spring right around the corner (fingers crossed), now is the perfect time to wear light and airy pieces like peek-a-boo shoulder tops and dresses. Whether in the form of a lightweight sweater, like the one below by Helmut Lang, or a breezy blouse, this style is one way to show a bit of skin while without going over the top.
Here are a few more cut-out shoulder styles that are ideal for spring and summer.

Love this Ella Moss Tapestry Peep Shoulder Top ($98). It pairs perfectly with wide-legged jeans for a slightly hippie-chick look. Keep your entire look relaxed, and add some wedges and understated jewelry to complete the look.
A mini-dress with a pretty silk print. The steel-grey and maroon colors of the Beyond Vintage Cutout Shoulder Long Sleeve Dress ($87.50) print are so flattering. Wear in chillier weather with boots and then swap out for sandals in the sun. Accessorize with a long pendant necklace.
For an office-appropriate way to wear the trend, try Parker’s Cutout Shoulder Tie Front Shirt ($187). Pair with trousers or a skirt and add a blazer to top off the look. The pop of bright coral adds some sunshine to a suit. For the weekend, pair with denim for a causal look.
A casual sundress always works well for a weekend. The Ella Moss Melody Lace Flutter Dress ($168) has flutter sleeves and lace insets for a slightly vintage look. This would also be great as a beach cover-up.
