My last post was about the lace bralette….which in turn made me think of how much I love backless shirts and tops. (I often wear a lace bralette with an open back top) My love of the “open back” has now turned into a joke with some of my closest friends…they call it my “signature look.”
I guess it goes back to the fact that I believe showing a little skin is sexy…..and still classy at the same time. I was obsessed with the crop top when I was in my 20’s. I think I had one from bebe in every color! (remember those? lol) I know that crop tops are back…and I have 1 or 2, but they are not as practical for me as a backless top. I mean, crop tops require a certain style pant or jeans or skirt. I also think showing the back is a bit more elegant than showing my midriff. A backless shirt can go with anything, and it comes in various styles! It can be tight, loose, a tank, have, long sleeves, etc. This particular one that I am wearing in the pictures was from Charlotte Russe (less than $20) and I wore it in the middle of February with maroon coated, leather leggings.
As you can see, I was almost all covered….except for the back!!! I really do believe that showing the back is a a nice way to show skin–even into your late 30s and 40s. Also, you can rock this look whatever your weight is. They have backless tops that only show a little bit of the back, and they have ones with a deep V that show the entire back. I have included some pics below of some backless looks…both causal and fancy.
So go ahead and “bring your sexy back” and purchase a backless top for spring!
