Let the Back Show

So you decide go statement back for your big day! Keep the following tips in mind and let your back show!

1. Practice proper posture. Straight posture will make your back look its best, but a bent, hunched over back looks significantly less attractive. So, hold your head high, your shoulders back, and your chest out on your big day!

2. Minimize your accessories. If you aim to show off your toned back, minimize your accessories to your outfit, as too many accessories would draw attention away. Also avoid accessories that cover your neck or back.

3. Pin up your hair. You may have long, luxurious locks. Wear your hair up to fully show off your back when you opt for a dress with statement back design. Or play peek-a-boo by allow part of your hair drape down your back to achieve a more demure look.

So, which style would you try for a special event?

      I sure do love backless dresses especially the key-hole back dresses. Now that I am an older gal, I wouldn't have the dip go too far south - but I can still pull off a lot of style with this fashion.
