Time to toss those brassieres out the windows, ladies! Designers took a backwards plunge this season with the most naked, open, draped, cutout backs we’ve ever seen in a single season.
The most chaste, classic gown from the front can be totally seductive from behind with a cutout, keyhole back. Pretty ballerina-esque dresses are completely bare save for two silken spaghetti straps keeping it all together.
With whatever clever way designers manage to bare your back, just make sure it’s ready for all that exposure. Tone your back muscles with yoga and weights. Exfoliate and moisturize back skin (with the help of a loved one) so it glows. A faux tan and gleaming body shimmer add the finishing touch. And remember, if you’re going backless on the big day, lose the bra several hours prior to be sure no phantom straps ruin the view.
