Back Talk

It’s easy to flaunt it all. To wear barely there clothing or teeny tiny bikinis that make jaws drop. The real way to be seductive however, ladies, is to be secretive about your motives. To be sassy and alluring without letting on that you’re searching for a reaction. To be effortlessly scandalous; yet still receive a silent answer from your admirers without a hitch. The key lies in effervescence. In being bubbly and frothy; in sparkling like a $50 dollar bottle of water picked up at a chichi paparazzi-hounded restaurant. In letting a little skin peek through via a sassy off-the-shoulder top; or, even more enticing, a little back talk in the form of Nightcap Clothing’s Drop Back Top, from the place I love to shop until I drop – Shopbop coupons.

From the front, you would never imagine that the loose-fitting Drop Back Top was anything other than a haute hippie little number that would look simply ravishing combined with motorcycle boots and a pair of frayed denim cutoffs – perhaps with a boyfriend jean fit and acid wash shading. But turn around, and darling, the world stops and gazes in amazement. Oui, the top that looked slouchy and sophisticated from one angle is actually in possession of a multifaceted, Jekyll and Hyde-like personality.

In the same fashion as the mullet, this is a top that embraces the term “business in the front, party in the back,” for the slub jersey with the saucy scoop, drops low in the back, and is adorned with a dainty little drawstring that seemingly ties the entire laid-back look into a pretty petite package to perfect to pass up.

Angelic in the white; smart in the silver; posh in the black. Forget the pricetag, loves, it’s a prim and proper piece with a healthy dose of brazenness that would work wonders in your wardrobe.

Besides, who can resist a little back talk every now and then?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopbop for the pictures.

Ooh, I love it! I think, though, I would have to be more demure and pair it with something more covering than those eensy weensy denim cutoffs, as it has quite a sexy back! It looks perfect for summertime :)

I like it, but I don't think it would work too well on me. I'm a bit short for very loose tops.

M said...

I love these backs! I think is a especial touch, very surprising and sexy.

This shirt is so cute! But I keep wondering about the bra. I don't like it when it's been showed, and walking without one is also not one of the best options...

Sasi said...

What a fabulous piece, perfect for summer.

Meream said...

I'd die in that. Haha. I don't like it when my back is cold. :D

Emily said...

Love it. Backless tops are so sexy without being trashy.
I want it! I had something of this sort in a scarlett color. I don't know what happened to it...
