Watch your back

October 21, 2008

This isn’t really a trend but I love to see how some designers have added extra volume and detailing to the back of the dresses/coats. From the back view, it might just look like a lump of fabrics, but from the side view, it can be quite flattering. But of course you would say that it definitely takes something to pull this look off without looking like a turtle.
