This Is The Jewelry You Need For Every Backless Look

Party at the back.

share with your friends
A backless dress is similar in many ways to a plunging front neckline. You might not be letting the girls out to play but you’re certainly showing off some serious skin, and knowing how to accentuate those shoulder blades can be a game-changer. Whether you’re going backless for a sophisticated evening look or wanting to add a little provocation to your day time outfit, we've got your back. 
 
If you're looking to show off a little skin this spring, here are 5 ways to enhance your back with simple jewelry tricks:

There are back drape necklaces designed for just such an occasion but honestly, any necklace worn the other way around will do the trick. Both dainty, minimalist pieces as well as statement pendants work well, just remember that the depth of the plunge on your dress or tee will dictate how long the necklace itself ought to be. We recommend that you get it to hit about three-quarters of the way down the exposed skin. For an extra-striking look, try wearing a drop choker necklace backwards and allowing the detailing to fall between your shoulder blades – just be sure the clasp (which will now be at the front) doesn’t look too out of place. If your back cleavage is a V shape, try following the contours of your outfit by wearing a long necklace with an extended, hanging chain.

Similar to but bolder than the backwards pendant, a cascading necklace is flattering to all and will really draw the eye towards the cut out detail. Again, there are many pre-existing pieces in this style, but you can also layer up a selection of your own necklaces of varying lengths for a similar result (though this might get a bit heavy). Try mixing styles such as simple chains and chunky ropes and ribbons in a palette that mixes silver, gun metal, rose gold and yellow gold for a dynamic, completely personalized look. Equal spacing between each layer is a more refined approach, but haphazardly piling up different shapes and styles will give you instant boho-babe points.

Sometimes the best way to accentuate a sultry exposed back is to keep your jewelry piled high in your hair. Try a back-drop head chain that will still draw your attention to the back without taking away from it. The best styles to look out for are ones that dangle down, but a '20s-style flapper accessory can work as a great alternative, too. To avoid appearing too dressed-up for a daytime look, tone down the fanciness by pairing your outfit with some sports luxe kicks and an on-trend metallic tote. Try wearing your locks long and loose so the hair charm blends in slightly or, if you really want to make a statement that demands attention, pull it back into a tight, low bun.

Cage jewelry was born for free-baring backs, and there are several ways to wear it: while full exposure will show off yours to its full potential, having it partially hidden beneath a higher cut is teasingly tempting, showing off just enough to make others curious. With the possibility to wear these body harnesses on the front or the back, your options are endless. This look works flawlessly with this season's open-back banker shirt trend, contrasting the overall masculine tone of the piece.

There’s something about an open back that is so sexy and revealing without giving away too many secrets. While some styles simply crave an accent to make them really stand out, others are far more sensual when left bare, so allow your back to do the talking and wear nothing but a splash of Dolce & Gabbana behind each shoulder blade.
