STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: An Open Mind to Open Backs

Style Advice of the Week

Open back tops are a huge trend right now, and this Fashionista pulls it off beautifully. I definitely had reservations about this style for a long time. Would my shirt fall off? Would I feel way too exposed? Fortunately neither of these things happened thanks to adhesive bras. I actually felt very confident when wearing one for the first time. I think that open back tops are the easiest way to show a little skin and still look classy because they’re sophisticated yet playful at the same time.

This Nordstrom tank in black and TOBI top are perfect for going out, and they would look good with shorts, pants or a skirt. Want to take the trend up a notch? Try an open back romper! I am currently eying this silky one and this lace one from Urban Outfitters.

I love how this Fashionista paired her top with her high-waisted skinny jeans, which are also on-trend right now, and Tory Burch booties. The top is the highlight of the outfit with its tie-dye print and back, but it wouldn’t look as chic if it were not for all of the other trendy pieces she is wearing. Her shoes match the color scheme of her shirt while the jeans pull everything together in a way that flatters her figure. Having a good sense of style is more than simply having an eye for certain items. One must also know what looks best together.
