Cutouts are nothing new in the world of trends. But this spring, they've crossed over into a more awkward territory. The slashes, holes, and gaps are in areas most women would prefer to keep hidden. Navels poked out at Alexander Wang, where one khaki skirt's waist hit right under the belly. Sides (and potential love handles) were at Erin Wasson, Frank Tell, Monique Lhuillier, and Yigal Azrouël. And Cushnie et Ochs sent out a gown with a huge thigh hole, so expect a peep show. Looks like clothes aren't necessarily about covering up this spring. Click ahead to see these looks and more.
We're not sure anyone with a normal stomach can wear these skirts at Alexander Wang.
