STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pretty From All Angles

Style Advice of the Week

When I go shopping or get dressed I tend to think of the details that are displayed on the front of my clothes, such as a pretty collar or a jeweled embellishment. I admit that I forget the simple fact that just because I don’t see the back of my clothes it doesn’t mean that others do not as well. After seeing this Fashionista’s adorable pink day dress with a stunning crisscross cut out on the back, I was inspired to add a similar concept to my wardrobe.

Dresses and tops offer a variety of ways to master the same eye catching detail. This dress from Forever 21 is not only the perfect pink polka-dot dress, but the back offers a sweet bow detail as an extra bonus. Shopbop takes a classic shirt dress in a glamorous shade of green and adds an edgy twist by cutting out the back. Pretty back details don’t just come on dresses but also on more casual pieces. This flannel from Urban Outfitters has a simple cut out on the back that adds just enough uniqueness to an outfit — this would pair great with skinny jeans and black combat boots. This long sleeve blouse from Nordstrom is a pretty shade of gray and has a simple cut out with a bow detail. This versatile top can be dressed up with a black pencil skirt or dressed down with denim.

Now aren’t you just anxious to put your hair in a high sock bun and let your outfit shine from every angle? I know I am!
