8 Daring Open Back Dresses ...

By Sophia

Open back dresses are a great way to show off some skin in an unexpected manner. Whether you go for a fully backless number or more subtle cut out details, an open back dress is a fun way to change things up. A sundress with an open back is a way to wear the look casually during the day, and dressy backless numbers can look chic at night. Take some style inspiration from a few dresses with open backs, below.

1 Colorblocked Open Back Dress

This color blocked dress has a few daring qualities. Not only does it have an open back, but a risqué sheer skirt as well. The open back might make it tricky for wearing a slip underneath, unless the slip is backless as well. Otherwise, wear this open back dress with shorts underneath for a different take on festival style.

2 Cutout Back Self Stripe Dress
