This Must-Have Top Trend Will Take You Into Fall And Beyond


By the time August rolls around, our once-pristine assortment of white dresses and linen separates shines a little less brighter in our wardrobe. Barbecues, weekend getaways and the like have given ample excuses to wear these summery pieces on repeat, but the new month—closer to autumn yet toasty as ever—calls for a refresh. Our solution? The open-back top. Aside from the implied ventilation that comes from a backless blouse, we’re particularly smitten with the piece because it offers an unexpected (and alluring) way to show off a little skin. Stylishly sweat-free, if you will. And to top it all off, unlike an eyelet off-shoulder blouse, these tops transition seamlessly into fall with the simple addition of a layer or two.
