There’s nothing sexier than a cut out back for summer. And it transitions well into fall. I know that seems forever away sitting here in MN with a 110 degree heat index. But having been in fashion retail for over a decade you get use to thinking ahead. In a month stores (even in the south) will start getting coats in! So I’m trying to make things I can wear now and for the next few months. You could easily layer these tops with a fun colored tank top, t-shirt, or long sleeve shirt. Or just wear it bear for a sexy surprise.
Making cut out t-shirts is such an easy DIY! I love easy quick DIY’s it’s nice to come up with an ideal and wear it the next day. I also love the element of surprise of having a basic outfit but with a surprise when you turn around. This is right up my alley my style is classic, comfortable, wearable, with a subtle surprising twist. It makes me think about how a Geisha revealing her unpainted neck was considered sexy. Less isn’t always more sexy, it’s the element of surprise that is.
The above photo would be an easy DIY, just cut across the back of a baggy t shirt and either leave the edges raw or turn under with a sewing machine and secure it on the sides by tacking (backstitching in place).
I love this torn back on an Aerosmith t-shirt that was sold on Etsy and made by Tess. The question is could I figure out how to make it? And check out some of her other pieces (below), they’re all really cool. At least you can buy some of her creations from her if you don’t want to DIY it. She is truly a t-shirt shreading artist! I love the variety of ways she came up with shreading.
