Backless Dresses: Discover the New Trend For Wedding Guests

There’s a clear trend that is stealing the show for this season in occasion-wear: the backless dress. It is a trend that has been growing in popularity in recent years and it’s a trend that is perfect for weddings as it beautifully combines femininity and elegance to create a look that will have everybody wondering where it was that you bought it from!

The Deep V

This type of neckline on the back of your party dress is ideal because you can play with not only its depth but also the fabrics to get the look that is perfect for your style, body type and just how ‘backless’ you are daring enough to pull off.

You can enhance the delicacy of the traditional lace dress by combining it with tulle, gauze and the flowing effect of volumous skirts giving you the two-piece effect. The rhinestone appliqué along the neckline and extending to the shoulders will bring an even more special touch to your party dress. Our favourite option? The floral patterns of rhinestones in the same tonalities of the dress.

Tattoo Effect

Embroidered flowers that create a tattoo effect on your back will make your party dress unforgettable, and designs with a second skin effect where the crystal tulle and the applications of lace and embroidered thread will be the center of all eyes.

Combined with chiffon and tulle skirts you can create a look that perfectly mixes the elegance of the fabrics and the sensuality of the transparencies. If you are looking for a red carpet guest look, dresses made in paillette are an option that you will not be able to resist.

Criss-Cross Backs

If you’re looking to add something special to your party look, crepe designs are your best choice. For evening weddings opt for sophisticated mermaid silhouette dresses in dark tones where metallic applications bring the final touch to your dreamy back. The paillette, one of the star fabrics of the season, creates unique pieces with a special touch of light.

Leg Slits

The sexiest party dresses combine open backs with skirts with leg slits. Jewelled bodices that leave the back completely exposed, appliqué with a second skin effect that play with the elegance of black or simple dresses of crepe with the touch of sensuality that you were looking for, all can make for one of the sexiest looks of all.
