Certain clothes can instantly make you feel like a bombshell as soon as you slip them on -- a backless top definitely falls into that category. But because it shows off a lot of skin, choosing the right bottoms to go with your shirt can be tricky. You can cover up a little more for a casual daytime look, but when you're feeling ultra-confident, go all out with bottoms that match the sexiness of your backless top.
If you’re headed out on the town, pair your back-bearing top with skinny jeans for a sexy, chic look. It’s a good choice if you want to keep your legs covered, so you don’t have to worry about showing too much skin. But the slim fit of the jeans still gives you a sexy look. A dark-wash denim will match any color of backless top, but you can also go with black skinny jeans for a good neutral option. Pair your backless top and skinny jeans with stiletto heels for a fierce, sexy look that’s sure to turn heads.
When you’re wearing a loose-fitting backless top, you can keep your look balanced by wearing bottoms with a tighter fit. Leggings are a comfy option that can work night or day. If you’re worried about the leggings showing bumps or bulges that you want to hide, make sure your backless shirt is long enough to cover your stomach and backside. Pair your sexy top and leggings with knee-high boots, and you’ll be ready for a girl’s night out. Swap the boots out for ballet flats to look sexy and polished while grabbing coffee with a friend.
For more formal events, a skirt is the ideal complement to a backless top. If you’re feeling daring, pair it with a miniskirt and boots for a super-sexy look. You can go with a longer pencil skirt and heels if you prefer a more sophisticated look. If you’re worried about showing too much skin, tuck your backless top into a high-waisted skirt – the higher waistband will cover some of your back so you’re not quite as exposed.
If you like the idea of a skirt but want a more casual look, shorts can look great with a backless top. Go with a tailored pair for a dressier, "night out" look. For a casual lunch with friends, khaki or denim shorts are a cute option. You don’t have to save the shorts just for the summer either – pair your sexy back-bearing top with black dress shorts, tights and heels, and you’ll be ready for a night out even when the weather’s cooler.
For the ultimate sexy "bad girl" look, wear your favorite backless top with a pair of leather pants. The look definitely isn’t for the faint of heart since all eyes are guaranteed to be on you; but it’s an edgy, sultry style that is perfect for a concert, a club or a special date. Choose black leather pants for a classic look, though you can go with a dark chocolate or wine color for a warmer look.
