Business In The Front, Party In The Back

No, I’m not talking about mullets, though I could go on and on about America’s favorite hair style (Long? Short? Why choose if you don’t have to?) for days. But alas, I speak of fashion trends, naturally…

I love this fairly recent fashion concept (I say “recent” to mean within the last 5 years or so) of tops that seem to be fairly classic and simple in the front, but end up having a surprise in the back. This Polka Dot Color Block Chiffon Blouse from Torrid ($42.50) is my most recent purchase, and I really love the surprise in the back!


A great addition to your layedback weekend wardrobe would be this Striped Lace Back Shirt from Keebe & Daro- $11.91

I love the back of this Carmakoma Textured Cut Out Back Dress from ASOS- $198.15

I’ve had this Bow Back Top from SimplyBe in my collection for a while now. It’s great for everyday wear, and reasonably priced at $28.00 (keep an eye out for sales and promo codes to drop that price down a bit)

I love this trend, and how just by turning around, you can make a completely different statement. It’s fun to keep ’em surprised and on their toes. You may find cut-outs, lace details, bows, or even surprising color-blocking. Whatever it may be, keep your eyes out for fun back details for added drama. Have fun with it!


Here is a great DIY Lace Insert tutorial. Give it a try and tell me how it turns out!
