These Open-Back Summer Dresses Will Take You Into Fall

Rather than splash cash on pieces that only wear well for the season, consider ones that would take you from summer through to fall.

Easy, breezy dresses are the poster child of summer dressing. And going by the calendar days, the time to retire them is fast approaching. As much as we love and have lived in the flouncy, floral summer numbers, most of these dresses aren’t transitional pieces you can take into fall. Admittedly, they don’t quite fit into dinner parties as they would at the park or the beach.

However, if we were discerning, there are certain summer dresses versatile enough to crossover into fall with ease. Specifically, the category is: open-back dresses. Minimal in front but statement-makers at the back, these open-back dresses work as well for an afternoon stroll as they do for an evening soiree. The open-back during summer serves as a functional window for breathability under the beating sun and in fall transforms into a sexy detail for evening wear. And the unassuming front wears brings with it a timeless appeal.

All it really takes is a change of accessories and shoes to go from season to season. Dress it up with kitten heels or slip into sandals for a laidback appeal. The possibilities here are endless!
