Open-Back Crisscross Details

As I’m sure you can figure out from any of the outfits that I share on the blog, I don’t wear anything too revealing. My whole philosophy is that I know what I have, and I don’t feel the need to show it off to anybody that is willing to look. However, it’s a whole different story when it comes to open-back details.

I’ve always been game for back details – back in high school, you couldn’t get me to buy a formal dress unless it had an open back or crisscross straps. Now, with open back and off-the-shoulder tops in their comeback season, it’s refreshing to wear something where I am covered in the front but still showing a little hint of somethin’. I mean, maybe it’s just me, but there is something subtly alluring about an exposed back. Remember Hilary Swank when she shut it down at the Oscars in the navy blue dress with the plunging back? I’d argue that anybody has yet to top that moment.

This tee from Betsy Boo’s Boutique is a match made for me. First things first, it’s neutral and has stripes – exactly what I need more of in my wardrobe … okay, not so much, but I can’t resist! Add that winning combination to the fun, open back crisscross details in the back, and I now have my new favorite top. It’s lightweight and airy, so it’s perfect for the last couple weeks of warm summer weather, but it also will transition well to fall with a jean jacket or cardigan. Sizing tip: this runs pretty big! I’m wearing a small, and I probably could’ve gotten away with sizing down to an XS. 

Are you a fan of open-back clothing or back details?
