Trend Setting: Keyholes

Whether you like it or not, the keyholes and cut out details on dresses are making a definite comeback this season.

Basic rules of trying a dress with cut outs is that it needs to be the right fit and length. It can’t have holes in inappropriate areas that don’t allow you to bend down, and shouldn’t be too loose because then it looks unflattering. If you can find a balance,  and you’ve mastered this celebrity favourite!

The best ones we found out there are from ASOS because the dresses are a bit more whimsical, everyday wear pieces and the tailoring was just right for this trend. The blue Warehouse Petal Keyhole Dress (far left) looks great in the spring with sandals, but in the winter pairing it with tights, layers and a pair of platforms gives it a modern cool vibe. And this dress is on sale for £48 during the holiday season.

The other keyhole dress we loved at ASOS was the Oasis Embellished Cuff Keyhole Tunic (below) because of its high scoop neckline, puff shoulders, beading to the cuffs and a tie front belt to the waist. And for £45 this dress is well worth the money.

Is this a trend worth trying for the holiday season?
