Don’t be afraid to open up

The snow may be falling, but don’t let the fact that your freezer is warmer than the weather stop you from showing a little skin!
Just for clarification, this does NOT mean that you should be strutting your stuff during a blizzard rocking short-shorts and uggs.

Seriously. Just don’t. 

Instead, pull on an oh-so-cozy open back sweater. Open back shirts sweaters are a fabulous way to break free from
being constantly covered up by winter clothes without freezing to death. They can be delicate and sweet or crazy sexy without making you look like you forgot it spring isn’t here yet.

The best part about open-backs is you can show off your gorgeous back or pair them with fun bright colored tanks to make a whole new look.

Victoria’s Secret has perfected the open back. They have tops, dresses and sweaters to die for. I picked up this number here from  their 2/$40 section:

Even got the yellow tank to match (on clearance!).  Its durable, it’s warm and oh-so cute. 

If your feeling crafty, a quick search on pinterest will reveal tons of DIY’s for making your own open back sweater for my favorite price:free. I haven’t tried one yet, but I think it may be time to grab a bottle of wine and get my craft on. If you’ve DIYed an open back, I’d love to see it! 

and if your still not sure about this open-back idea, here’s a little fashion porn to inspire you..
