The Perfect Black Backless Dress - Summer 2022
During the month of April, I start my search for this summer’s little black dress. Of course, we all have several in our closet but we can all do with a refresh. Every black dress serves a different purpose, the long flowing black gown for black tie events, the conservative black dress for work, a sexy black backless dress for the date you want to dazzle and the cocktail black dress for the “festive attire” invitation, to name a few.
I was shopping for my daughter at Zara’s in Soho and of course, started to shop for myself. You know how great Zara is, current fashion with reasonable prices ( most items cost under $100). This is where I found my new little black backless dress for summer. Knee length made of great soft cotton fabric. The dress looks adorable, puffy short sleeves, a flounce at the bottom and a turn it around for the twist! This dress has a big open back cutout! Of course it looks amazing on the model, who is not wearing a bra and does not really need to, but I do. My go to solution is BackStory’s fabulous bra featuring the “Studs” cover. There are several other choices, so you pick your favorite.
