Peekaboo, I see you!



This beloved nursery game takes on a new meaning this season thanks to all the clothing and accessories with openwork details.  But don't dismiss this big reveal just because you're modest.  It's not necessarily about showing a lot of skin.  Revealing details don't have to put anything you don't want to on display- if you choose wisely.  Look for small-scale, intricate laser cut designs or discreet openings at the shoulder or near the rib cage.  Tip: You can always layer something colorful underneath a T-shirt or jacket with cutouts.  This way you get to call attention to the detail without being risque.  My favorite way to rock the trend- a one-piece swimsuit that exposes a small area, which can be more intriguing than a string bikini.  A little mystery goes a long way.

Here's How to Pull it Off...

1. Be sure to put the focus where you want it.  If you have a slender waist, celebrate it with a dress that zips open on either side.  Got shapely legs? Try a skirt with windows from knee to thigh. Not feeling like a show-off?  You can certainly wear laser-cut sandals or a perforated cuff.  The idea is to deliver some skin or the illusion of it, somewhere.

2. If you are wondering whether this look is age-appropriate, I would steer clear of showing a lot of cleavage and opt for a "cold shoulder" top or a back cutout instead.
