Take It Back
A demure detail, a long lasting impression, a postcard to whomever you are walking away from. A look at back details; bows, buttons and volume that mean business in the front, and a party in the back. Instead of putting your best face forward, leave your mark as you make your exit.
Make a sublte statement with Helmut Lang's Orchid Embroidery Dress, a midi-length dress with sheer overlay and delicate buttons down the back. The embroidered orchid motif adds a playful aspect to this austere silhouette. The low, open back Gloria Dress by Wolcott Takemoto is a stronger statement. It's flattering u-shape shows off a generous amount of skin, while the high neck in front adds a demure dimension.
Beaufille's Hyperia Blouse is already a striking silhouette, with its voluminous sleeves and gathered neckline. The tie at the back of the neck can be tied up into a an oversized box or a smaller bow with long flowing tails. Crisp cotton poplin eases you from day to summer night effortlessly. The Aurora Backless Dress from Apiece Apart is an easy day-dress with a perfectly shaped cut out back opening.
The delicate button down Suzanne Rae Igor Button Back Blouse is the kind of blouse you need a partner to button you into (or out of). A long line of covered buttons drapes along the spine holding together the lightweight gauzy peplum silhouette. The Pas De Calais linen and silk blazer is crisp and tailored in front yet the back is adorned with a padded bustle of abstract silk. An easy layer to add dimension in daily wear.
You don't have to put it all out in front of you. Make them notice when you walk away, and play it cool, don't look back.
