What do celebs do when they want to give off the appearance that they have sexy curves? Why, slip on a black cutaway dress! Eva Longoria recently did it in her Victoria Beckham stretch-crepe cutaway dress, Lucy Hale got in on the look via an Opening Ceremony racerback dress, Taylor Schilling dabbled in her Calvin Klein gown, and Jennifer Carpenter also tried the style via a black cutaway dress. As you can see, cutaway necklines, where more of the shoulder and decolletage are exposed, create a wave-like shape across the shoulders, giving the appearance of curves. The rest of the dress is streamlined, making the top half stand out. Plus, black helps keep the look super polished, allowing for the cutaway, not the color, to be the star.

Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker posed pretty at the London photocall for their new movie Battleship. While it appears that the dresses they picked — Rihanna in Alexander Wang, Brooklyn in Stella McCartney — are vastly different, upon closer inspection, they share one sexy detail. Both frocks have exaggerated halter necklines that show off their beautiful shoulders. Notice how each cut caves into the center of their chests, revealing parts of their decolletage. It's a small detail, but one that can work major wonders. First, it can give the illusion of curves, plus it can also offer subtle sexiness, especially when the hemline of the dress is longer. Inspired by Rihanna and Brooklyn, we tracked down a handful of halter dresses with similar cuts, so shop your favorites below.
You know when it is just so hot and you don't feel like wearing anything? You'd rather just sit around in your underthings next to the AC (you sexy thang!). But, you can't. You have a party to attend! This is when a hot weather halter dress comes to the rescue. This universally flattering dress shape was invented for fun in the sun with its cinched neckline and flowing silhouette. Show off those shoulders in one of these; skip the necklace, add sex kitten shoes and you're good to go.
