The LOOK Edit: Backless Dresses

The backless dress is a really underrated item. Unlike a low cut top or thing high skirt, there is something much more subtle (but still very sexy) about a dress with a low cut back. Whether you go completely backless or rock a low back or cut-out back style, showing off a bit of back is by far the classiest way to flash a bit of flesh.

The elegant shape of a backless dresses means they are perfect for ocassionwear dressing – there is nothing more glam than a dress that is both full-length and backless. Why not try one next time you’re stuck with what to wear for that wedding?

At the other end of the scale backless maxi dresses work a dream on holiday. Throw over your bikini to take you from beach to bar – ideal for swooshing about in with a cocktail in hand.  Plus, for festivals we love the idea of a long sleeved backless mini dress, preferably in lace or crochet.
