The open back style of wedding dress has been around for quite some time and designers have found ways to get creative with it for the Fall 2023 season with a statement open back look.
The concept of an open back is just that – open. Meaning no fabric or detailing, the plunging look of an open back was the statement on its own. If you wanted a statement back – such as lace detailing or sparkling designs – you were not choosing an open back. It was always one or the other.
Designers have found a way to give dress shoppers the best of both worlds, with statement open back designs popping up on the runway during New York Bridal Fashion Week.
Statement open backs presented themselves in a variety of creative ways including asymmetrical framing of the open back, necklace-like design draping over the back just dainty enough to still show off the open back and detailed straps drawing attention to the open back they’re creating.
