Cutout necklines are all the rage. They are a wonderful yet subtle way to show off skin and get your sexy on while still maintaining an air of class and elegance. Although lovely, sometimes cutouts can appear vulgar, especially if they are too revealing or if the cutouts are teamed with a too-short hemline. But if you can get it right – no one can touch you. Let actress Lupita Nyong’o show us how it’s done. Check her out as she attended the GQ 2013 “Men Of The Year” Party at Wilshire Ebell in Los Angeles, California on November 12, 2013.
Neckline Inspiration – Lupita Nyongo Cushnie et Ochs Cutout Sheath Dress
The 12 Years a Slave star sported a light pink dress with cap sleeves, the skirt falling to just below her knees. The high neckline and cap sleeves were balanced out by the double, deep cutouts running vertically down the front. The half-heart shapes showed off just the slightest sliver of cleavage, but no more than that.

If you’re keen on sporting the cutout look like Lupita, be inspired by her tips. Stick to a longer hemline – right below the knees is best. Style your look minimally as you want the cutout to be the center of attention. An elegant hairdo works best to round out the look.
