A stunning racerback dress is ideal for many occasions and many seasons. It's a timeless warm weather choice but it's also a must-have on beach holidays, poolside retreats and any other time a flattering, fashionable, balanced piece looks best. Dresses with a racerback strike the perfect balance between casual and dressy, it all depends on the accessories.
Have fun teaming a sleek black dress or a festive striped number with the right details. With plenty of juniors and women's dresses on offer by Free People, American Rag and many more, shopping is just as much fun as wearing.
Start looking for a racerback dress in a solid color. Dressing up a black, grey or coral dress is fun and effortless. A black maxi dress is ideal for semi-formal outdoor functions where comfort is just as important as style. Look for something long that brushes the ankles but fits like a dream. Fitted dresses with lots of length elongate the limbs, plus they're slimming in solid hues. Keep things laid back by pairing a racerback maxi with ballet flats in a bright color or metallic hue. For brighter shades like orange or pink, stick to nude heels or woven sandals.
Be more daring with printed tank dresses. Nautical stripes look wonderful with platforms or gladiator sandals. Look for dresses that pair black or navy blue with white. Long necklaces and wavy, beachy hair look priceless with this kind of ensemble. Floral or geometric patterns call for something a little less subtle. Stick to cool white and black palettes but try charming ankle boots or statement heels with studs, spikes or sequins.
A good-looking racerback dress is ideal for lots of occasions. Check out more formal dresses for juniors when shopping for special functions. Pick out a long dress with a full flowing skirt that has a lovely, feminine drape. If it's a beach party, go for flat sandals. If it's a fancy fete, stick to high heels with eye-catching embellishments. For really formal dresses, stick to a shorter hem. Browse for something with lots of feminine lace details in a soft color like rose, blush or pink. Bonus points for pairing a flapper-like silhouette with vintage Mary Jane shoes.
