Backless tops are a great way to add a little extra flair to your wardrobe.

In this article, we'll discuss how to accessorize and put together an outfit featuring a backless top. Read on to find out more!

Going backless has always seemed to be something for the brave and extroverted, but, it doesn’t have to be. While we are bombarded of beautiful women on the red carpet wearing flashy backless gowns, it’s no wonder that some women may not be running to their nearest fashion hub to pick one up to try it on for herself. Wearing a backless top doesn’t have to be as scary as it may seem, no matter your body type or personal taste. But, at the end of the day, you may wonder how you should style a backless top so that it fits your body and creates a cohesive look? Fortunately for you, it isn’t nearly as daunting as it may seem.

First and foremost you need to pick the top that suits your body type and personality. Whether you’re looking for a halter top or something a little more extreme, you have to make sure that you’re going to be comfortable bearing a little more skin than you may be used to on your average day. You can pick out a backless top or a backless dress, no matter which is your preference, but, if you want to wear a shirt only to lessen the worry a bit more, make sure that it is a top that you’re going to be willing to pair with multiple outfits to create several looks for your wardrobe.

Pick your underwear.

This may seem to be the trickiest task when you’re looking for a backless tank top since you don’t want the band of your bra showing. While some women may be able to get away with wearing no bra, others won’t be so lucky. If you do have smaller breasts feel free to let the girls free. If you’re concerned about showing your nipples through the fabric, purchase a good pair of pasties to keep your modesty.

If you’re a little bit larger, think about getting an adhesive bra that has a band that will wrap around your stomach rather than the middle of your back. This is the first option you should choose if you’re a bit bustier than average.

But, at the end of the day, if you need the full support of a bra make sure that you’re choosing one that has a little bit of glam to it, turn it into a part of your outfit with sheer lace around your torso and a razorback or criss-crossed strap.

Pick your accessories.

Now is the time to let your accessories shine. Don’t over-do it though as you want to let your back do the talking for the majority of the time. Pick one or two staple pieces such as earrings, bracelets, or a necklace that will help to tie your entire outfit together.

Choose an up-do.

It’s easy to let your hair down when you are feeling a little squeamish about showing your back. But, there’s no reason to worry about showing your back when that is the whole purpose of a backless crop top. Prepare to sweep those lovely locks skyward in a messy bun or keep it in place with bobby pins or accessorize your hair with a scarf.

Keep it classy.

Backless tank tops are a great way to show a little extra skin, this is especially wonderful if you have any body modifications such as tattoos to show off. But, make sure that you’re keeping it at least somewhat low-key as backless tops can be a powerful statement piece.

Pair it with a good pair of Jeans.

Unless you’re going to the office or a classy event, you want to dress down a little bit for a casual look. Pairing a backless top with a pair of black skinny jeans and boots is a great way to create an edgy yet put together look.
