The season’s hottest trends can be described in one word – daring – and the latest open-back trend is no exception. After the tremendously popular midriff floss, napkin tops, and bralettes-and-blazers trends, open backs are the latest to sweep Instagram. Come fall, it was evident that the (previous) micro trend had taken root; who can forget Gigi Hadid‘s internet-breaking walk down the Jacquemus Fall/Winter 2020 runway in a sensational powder grey open-back dress? Brands like Bottega Veneta and AlexandreVauthier also sent sexy backless numbers down the aisle, getting “It” girls obsessed with the style.
With cooler temperatures on the horizon, (socially distanced) beach brunches, staycations, and girls’ nights out are on our winter calendars. The versatile trend promises to fit perfectly into both your resort and party wardrobe. While cute open-back floral sundresses make the ideal beach attire, floaty backless slip dresses are perfect for a night out. Opt for wide-open strappy backs à la CarolineDaur if you’re feeling gutsy, or slip into a back cut-out dress like HaileyBeiber. Want to make a statement? Mix two trends. Think: open-back midriff floss tops or criss-cross halter necks. We especially love influencer Leonie Hanne‘s cut-out back blazer, revealing the coveted yellow Jacquemus knit bralette underneath – nailing two trends in one ensemble.
