After being cooped up in sweats for nearly two years, fashion's taken a turn toward "dopamine dressing," or wearing clothes that boost your mood and bring you joy. Within that trend, daring cutouts have taken center stage. While cutouts started catching fire last fall, stylists say they're not going anywhere in summer — and now Amazon has an entire storefront filled with stylish dresses.

Perfectly breezy for those blistering summer days, the section includes various styles of dresses, including mini-, midi-, and maxi-length picks.
