There’s no denying that when it comes to dressing, it can be difficult to toe the line between totally predictable and just plain crazy. Sure, we want to take a risk, but we don’t want to look like we just stepped out of a Lady Gaga video.
The compromise? Business in the front, party in the back! From playful bows and ladylike lace, to sexy plunges and daring drapes, garments with cool, interesting backs can add just the right amount of pizzaz—and surprise—to an otherwise typical ensemble.
So go ahead, throw on an open back cocktail dress or a cross-back sweater and give ’em something to really turn around for.
