Now that the warm weather has finally hit, it's time to show off some skin. We've been hiding away under thick sweaters for some time now, waiting to try out our new favorite trend for summer: breezy tops with detailed backs.
Forget about wearing a shirt that has an interesting neckline or embellishment—it's all about wearing the detail on the back, giving all your haters something to look at (I'm only half-kidding). Try out an interesting lace-up or a deep-V style, show off that skin, and do something different with your outfits. This might feel a bit scary to you, so maybe start with something simple like a keyhole closure and move up to the low-cut open back tee and a blouse with an oversized tie or lace detail. Once you've eased into it, we guarantee you'll never go back!
