Top 5 Crafty Cutouts: A Cut Above

icon

How do we feel about the current cutout trend? Unlike those on sexy mini-dresses, shoes’ latest cutouts are on the artsy side. It has a very homegrown DIY and crafty vibe to it, no? I’m all about a good craft project, so I personally love it. But I can see how it can take some getting used to. Once your eyes adjust to the hand-touched spirals and zigzags, think about pairing these down-home shoes with something paradoxically glamorous.
