Wear It Wednesday | How to style a Split Back top

I’ve been loving split back styles for a while and just recently got brave enough to add one to my wardrobe. The thing to remember with a split back is it’s going to flaunt your lower back but not necessarily up to your bra line so a traditional bra can be worn, but if you feel like your bra is showing you can do two things.

1) wear a lace bralette and own it- girl you’re gorgeous just rock it

2) wear your split back over a coordinating camisole…no really. This is a great way for those of us who maybe more sensitive to showing our back to still rock this on-trend cut. This open style is perfect for keeping you a little cooler in the hot dog days of summer but can be worn into the fall or in early spring with the addition of a fitted camisole.

My split back is the Justine from the Downtown Chic collection by Elegantees, in Papaya Punch. I admit to owning a few things in this orangey/peachy color but I just love it so much that I’ll probably just thrift some of my old tops in lieu of this one. #worthit

The key to wearing a split back top is balance, this style is looser in the body; so pair this style with a more fitted bottom for better proportions.
