Backless Dresses in Black
Welcome, Back: 4 Tips for Wearing a Backless Dress
There’s no other option as stunning as a backless dress in black. It’s super sleek, it’s slimming, and—most of all—it’s sexy. As is any frock that exposes a lot more than you’re used to. A masterpiece: That’s what you’ll look like when you wear one, but there’s an art to it. Follow our four tips and, trust us, you’ll be picture perfect.
1. Start with your skin.
When you wear a backless dress in black, it’s truly your time to shine. Not only should your skin be soft and supple, it should be radiant in contrast to the dark fabric. Use your favorite body scrub or exfoliator in the shower, and then use an all-over moisturizer with tiny light-reflecting particles in it. Everyone will wonder just how you got that glow.
2. Keep it conservative up front.
It’s all about balance—if you’re revealing a lot in the back, your front should be mostly covered up. Being sexy is not about baring it all; It’s knowing how to walk the line and leave some things to the imagination.
3. Wear a better bra.
Your T-shirt bra can take a timeout tonight. This is the time to break out an adhesive version instead. It has just as much support as the one you wear everyday, except it’s backless, so there won’t be any pesky bra straps detracting from your look. Just stick it onto your chest and you’re good to go.
4. Accessorize accordingly.
The exposed back is like a canvas—what you choose do with it is up to you. You can leave it blank or add something to it, like a reverse drop necklace that goes down your spine. Alternatively, you can style your hair to cover bits of it, too.
A backless dress is a daring choice to wear. We have no doubt you’ll be beautiful enough to be put on display in yours.
