This Is What Happens When Two Trends Become One

Mixing any two seemingly different trends can often lead to pretty, well, scary results, but the season's latest mashup is just plain pretty. Now, it's cutouts and full skirts that are getting the Frankenstein treatment, offering up a ladylike silhouette with a deliciously subversive twist.
Most notably seen on Tibi's spring '14 runway, these styles are not only striking but also full of texture, something our clothes tend to lack in the summer months, when cotton and linen hold court in our wardrobes. Even better, this sheer detail provides a cleverly subtle take on those other, often-revealing cutout pieces. But, the best part? Tibi's not the only designer getting in on the trend; Jonathan Simkhai, Sandro, and Zara, to name a few, have also jumped on board. Click ahead to take in (and shop) 12 bottoms that are sheer genius.
