sexyback

i have a beloved black cashmere sweater from rugby that i have absolutely worn to threads but can’t seem to stop throwing on when i seem to have exhausted all other options. sure, black is basic and cashmere is soft, but the real reason i keep coming back to this piece is its silhouette: a high boatneck in the front and a low scoopneck in the back. it’s a versatile piece that provides warmth under a blazer but whose sexy shape can more than hold its own once the blazer comes off. here are some beautiful backless finds you might incorporate into your own wardrobe:

vena cava wow dress, available from rent the runway for $50
helmut lang bondage exit dress, available on rent the runway for $50

velvet kalani dress, $124 at shopbop

susana monaco mini open back dress, $150 at shopbop
in addition to these sexy nighttime options, this look can work unexpectedly well for daytime too. the impressive selection of cutout dresses at urban outfitters is a case in point. here are two of my favorites:
pins and needles lace open back shift, $58 at urban outfitters
lucca couture open back dress, $58 at urban outfitters

  1. I think you should buy th boatneck mini at fashion junkee. For $34 it is a steal and it reminds me of the rugby backless sweater!XOXO, Beth

  2. I would love to be able to pull off a backless dress or blouse! I’m working out now… hopefully by summer my back will be in perfect shape to rock something like this.
