The open-back trend will have a major moment this summer

The off-the-shoulder trend is still going strong but now with Instagram, Bloglovin’ and Pinterest it gets overexposure, I think. So I decided to give it a break and try the backless top for a change. The experts say that the open-back trend will have a major moment this summer. Yep, I think so too. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not going to stop wearing my off-the-shoulder. At least, not cold turkey. That would be difficult since my off-the-shoulder tops have been my best summer’s friend last year. But I like the idea that my look may seem “standard” from the front and has an unexpected detail that can only be seen when I walk away. The amount of back to show is all up to you. You can adopt the open-back trend and just keep visible a small peek of skin like I did with a cut-out button-up shirt.

These open-back dresses and tops are available at Net-À-Porter. Soooo sexy!

I encourage women over 40 to try the backless and off-the-shoulder trends. We shouldn’t stop ourselves by those silly You can/You can’t rules. After all, we all have beautiful shoulders and a lovely back! If the challenge is for you how to dress in a tasteful and sophisticated way, don’t pick your brain out: simply wear your backless top like a regular sweater with a pencil skirt or cropped pants. I also like to balance out the silhouette with flare jeans for a 70’s vibe or team it with a laid-back culottes for an effortlessly chic summer look. Headed to the office? Layer a jacket or cardigan to make it office appropriate and take it off on your way back home.

  1. I LOVE the trend. Have you ever seen the iconic black, backless dress Mierelle Darc wore in the film “Le Grand Blond avec Une Chausser Noir? (Bonaparte’s uncle directed it). Google the dress. It is iconic.
