Backless Dress by David Koma
The good weather is officially back – yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I had myself a Callippo – and so ShinyStyle finds itself searching for the best summer trends in earnest. And here’s one that we can totally get behind: peekaboo back cleavage, a modern alternative to flaunting your bosoms to all and sundry. Sexy, not slutty, chic, not cheap, this is a trend that we can get behind.
Whether it’s just a cheeky flash of skin that you’re after to show off your blissful new tan, or full-on bum skimming backless numbers, there’s a garment out there to you to rock this summer.
As we all know, it can be so tempting when it’s impossibly hot in the summer to dig out your skimpiest clothes, never mind that you look more Katie Price than Kate Moss, and brave it in public. But the backless is sexy, elegant and chic all the way.
We’ve included in the above gallery a couple of our favourite fashion mavens showing us exactly how it’s done when it comes to showing off your back; who can forget Diane Kruger’s jaw-droppingly glitter-encrusted backless Atelier Versace number that she wore to the Inglorious Basterds première, or the plunging nude number that Kylie was seen out in earlier this month?
Check out the gallery to see how Di and Kylie worked the look, and our favourite pieces from the high street.
