Summer Obsession - Open Back Dresses

This summer's obsession is definitely open back dresses. They're simply flawless and dramatic, and in my opinion it's so much sexier to show off your back than your front. Such a breezy look to stay comfortable during my favorite time of year. Perfect for brunch with friends on the weekend or fancy events and summer weddings.

What's your summer-look obsession this year?

  1. These are all so pretty! I love the look of an open back dress but hate the other stuff you have to work around (no bra, etc) to get it to look right.

  3. We are so friends for a reason, I am allll about an open back dress. It's the one time the itty bitty club comes in handy! I love all of the ones you've chosen, especially the one with the bow!

  4. I've always been obsessed with the back of dresses. When I was wedding dress shopping, my mom kept saying, "You can't pick your dress based on the back of it!" Oh really, mom? Because I totally did. Now here's my dilemma... what to do about the bra issue? The cups that stick? Or no bra?

  5. I 100% agree with you on open back dresses!! Sadly mama needs a lot of support so I can't ever wear them :( But I love seeing them on others!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. I have an obsession with open back dresses too!! I want that mint colored one with the crochet back so bad! I have a feeling that's one of those "pins to no where" huh? Sigh.

  25. Oh my gosh these are all SO cute/classy! I love that first one, especially!

  26. I love the open back look!!! I completely agree that it is sexier than showing too much cleavage or a dress being too short. I for one can't pull it off though. I need a great bra with lots of support and these dresses don't really accommodate such requests. I am just going to sit here and pretend like I can add these to my closet.

  27. I am SO with you!! I love these! What is the best bra solution you've found for full back-less dresses?
