A moment that sticks in my mind is a conversation that I had years ago with my Aunt Robin. I remember her explaining how beautiful she thought backs were. 'Backs?' I thought. It seemed so random!
But picture this: Breakfast at Tiffany’s begins, Audrey Hepburn strolling through New York City, coffee and croissant in hand. After lusting over a Tiffany’s showcase, she saunters off. Only this time, the 5 strands of pearls draped from the front of her neck and the Givenchy LBD that scoops across her shoulder blades showing juuuust enough skin before connecting in the middle of her back is replaced with a straight cut garment that leaves so much to the imagination that it doesn’t even exist. Not quite as sophisticated, huh?
Although a little more timeless than trendy, embracing the beauty of your back is something that goes so far under-the-radar that it’s hard to even capture its brilliance. Focusing on your back creates the sweet spot where sexy meets elegance.
