The age-old fashion rule (not that I'm really all about rules in fashion - but bear with me), is if you're showing skin in one area of your outfit, to balance it out by covering up another area. Short skirt? Skip the deep-v neck top and stick to something a bit more demure.
Open back tops like the one I'm wearing here started popping up everywhere over the last year, and they're a great piece to have in your wardrobe. From the front, it's a just a sweet little top, with puffed sleeves and a high collar. But in the back.....a nice crossed open back showing off some skin! You could always wear a top like this with a bandeau underneath to have it peek out the back. Or if you're heading to the beach, a strappy bikini would be perfect underneath too.
If we have a summer anything like last summer (I was sweltering hot the entire time), then shirts like this are going to be your best friend. Just imagine how it'll keep you cool when a breeze comes by!
