Backless Dresses



If you're not a fan of showing too much cleavage, take cues from the style set and plump for a backless dress, instead.

A fringe trend last summer, the flesh-flashing frocks are back in full force for this season and we love their ability to err just on the right side of sultry, whilst keeping us cool during balmy days and nights. 

Browse our edit of the best, from high street to high-end, and team with the season’s coolest shoe – the mule – and you’ll be fitting in with fashion mavens the world over.
