Eveningwear cut to emphasize a bare back are becoming increasingly popular amongst young women—especially for prom. It is very important to find a dress with either a full open back and no other cut outs, or a half open back and a small leg slit. If a prom gown has too much fabric missing it can easily go from elegant to trashy. An open back dress guarantees a WOW-factor without being too over the top and glitzy, if that is not your style. The best thing about an open back dress is the freedom it creates for other accessories. Whether it’s an embellished hair-do, a statement piece of jewelry, or a creative neckline, open back dresses can carry it all off perfectly!
