Bringing Sexy Back!
One style we are absolutely loving right now is the open back trend. It’s flirty without being in-your-face-sexy and it’s perfect if you’ve finally grown tired of the cut out shoulder or cold shoulder trend which has been around for a couple of years now. Take this deep V back, marl gray top for example – can’t you just see that being the perfect addition to your closet this fall?!
For summer 2018 the open back trend manifested itself in the shape of pretty backless maxi dresses and chic backless rompers and jumpsuits, however the open back cut is still very much evident in fall. The only difference is now the fabrics are, naturally, warmer – think cozy wool knits and soft velour, and the garments are sweaters and sweatshirts. This soft dusty blue open back sweatshirt is one of our favorites at the moment.
The other thing we love about open back sweaters is that they’re perfect for dressing up your favorite pair of jeans – with their plain front and interesting back details – such as the knotted and twisted sweater below – backless knits manage to effortlessly bridge the gap between casual and sexy.
If baggy, slouchy or loose fitting knitwear isn’t your thing and you prefer a leaner silhouette, fear not because you’ll also find open back sweaters that have a more fitted form. Our ribbed, open back polo neck sweater with its edgy puff sleeves and sexy keyhole bust cut out might be just what you’re looking for.
And if going full open back seems like a step too far (whether that's for sartorial reasons or due to the weather!) you could always meet the trend half way with a sweater with a lace up back – just like this cute little number with metal eyelets that comes in brown, army green, black and grey – perfect fall and winter colors!
What do you think about the open back or backless trend? Will you be rocking one of our new sweaters or sweatshirts this season? If so, let us know which one (or ones!) in the comments. Finally here's a inside tip - if you want to know which one of our backless sweaters is our most popular, it's this pretty pink one with bow detail. That's flying off shelves so make sure you get in quick to be in with a chance of adding it to your knitwear collection this fall!
