Cutouts were all over the runways for spring, but some aren’t all that wearable—especially if your age is north of 30. This cotton-poly dress is a happy exception. It carries all the breezy appeal of the cutout trend while hewing to a classic color (black) and shape (A-line). It’s not cheap, granted. But this is the kind of dress you’ll reach for again and again.
