SS’21: Throwback to Comfy Back! #TrendAlert

Backless Trend Spring Summer 2021

Welcome the disarming power of a backless dress! A notch ahead in going bold in gold, check out this sensational trend of SS’21. Are you ready to flaunt that sizzling back of yours?

A trend revealing the back has come as a surprise as the entire year went into quarantine. Historically revealing, backless dresses are seen as business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back hybrid garments. You would think, “If that is so, why is a spine revealing trend like this, gaining so much limelight amid pandemic?” 🤔 Well, how about a little hope and a hot dose of positive energy! Backless as a trend is here imparting a positive vibe in sync with being comfortable in our own skin. So let’s embrace bareback with sass and comfort, shall we? A trend, modest enough for a Zoom call but also daring enough to add a small thrill to these mundane days, let’s revel in this bold fashion game and glow in this body-positive movement!

A Look To The Back!

First appearing in the 1920s, within a decade the backless trend gained immense popularity as a way to flaunt that sassy sun-tan. It was all about showing off a tanned spine, without tan lines. Holding many controversies and accounts of bold moves, this trend has had its place fixed in the books of fashion history. Big actresses like Constance Bennett and Donyale Luna are big-time historical proponents of going bold and backless. Many other big celebs have walked the same path in different styles, flaunting that sizzling spine in confidence!

Back To The Runways!

This Spring Summer 2021, ramps and runways were also revealing spines seamlessly and with as much elegance! Talk about Givenchy’s stretchy jerseys or Christopher John Rogers knitted dress, going backless brought out a clever twist on comfy clothing. While Nina Ricci stood true to those feminine knots and cuts, Arias went bold and sensuous with string ties. Givenchy, on the other hand, styled with big sensual cut-outs and even some glitter!

While Bottega Veneta worked with comfy cuts and added strings to the loose silhouettes, Simon Miller offered a slashy back-to-shoulder reveal knit option for that chilled-out party mood.

The ramps and runways were all set to flaunt this barebacked look! Checking out Altuzarra’s asymmetric cuts – relaxed met chic this season in a bold avatar, yet all comfy! Miu Miu’s icy dress was almost entirely backless—its ultimate party frock will make one yearn to go bareback this Summer! While Victoria Beckham’s tie-back to the big bold cuts added volume to the aura!

Bold In The Limelight!

After all the ramp love of flaunting those barebacks, there was a hot-n-chic look for the celebs to revel in too. From Amanda Seyfried, Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, to Viola Davis and Jane Levy, it was time to get back in the party game!

Halle Berry’s backless dress with side-cuts and messy hair was THE look for the Spring Summer 2021. Carrying on the post-quarantine vibe with comfort, sass and relaxed look, it’s the new laid-back!


On the homefront too, many celebrities were seen flaunting their dreamy looks. While Mouni Roy flaunted that back in comfy to catchy outfits, Kiara Advani was all about the beach vibe – in backless!  From Mithila Palkar, Disha Patani, to Jahnvi Kapoor, Tara Sutaria, and Deepika Padukone, it was time for a “Look-at-that-back” statement!
