Gabrielle Union recently modeled the cutout trend in motion, and it's nothing short of envy-inducing. Following her family's red carpet appearance at the premiere of "Cheaper by the Dozen," the actress shared a video of herself walking in a cutout sweater dress on Instagram. She starts the clip facing away from the camera to show off the dress's open back before turning to reveal front cutouts and then playfully running in another direction. "When I'm tasked with debating an idiot 🚶🏾‍♀️🚶🏾‍♀️🚶🏾‍♀️👋🏾🥰 No Thank You. @nyandcompany 🔥🔥," she captioned the post.

Last week, she posted a photo of herself wearing that same dress at an undisclosed location, but this was the first time she captured it in motion. The green sweater design is part of her spring collection with New York & Company, which launched in February with the goal of providing "sophisticated looks and signature statement pieces in bold colors and timeless silhouettes," per the retailer's website.

Featuring a plunging neckline, two front cutouts, and side knee-high slits, Union's midriff-baring midi is an elevated and alluring spring outfit to wear to brunch or the beach. And it's currently on sale for $91, which makes it an affordable style, too. The "Bring It On" actress joins a well-dressed lineup of celebrities like Jordyn Woods and Halle Bailey who are adding to the momentum of cutout dresses for the new season.

While the trend dates back to 2020, designers have experimented with new cutout shapes and placements this spring, sparking renewed interest in the silhouette. Whether you'd like to flaunt your midriff or clavicle, the 2022 versions are inventive and exciting.

Give the trend a try by shopping Union's look ahead.
