Cutaway gowns are a hot ticket in 2020 and, with off-the-shoulder lines, split skirts and plunge bodices, there’s a body-revealing look guaranteed to show off your best side

Cutaway gowns are in most bridal collections in 2020 – and there’s lots to love about these elegant or flirtatious styles. From discreet split skirts and plunge fronts to bold off-the-shoulder lines, you have a look to ramp up the glamour and show off your best side.
