    1. A lace-up knit pullover, because sweater weather is vastly improved when you back can get a little breeze.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I've found my new favorite sweater. Waiting for new colors to pop up so I can keep throwing my money at this company! The fit was comfortably loose. The dip in the back is super sexy in a casual way. I have even turned the sweater around to have the dip in the front (to show off my sternum tattoo). Despite the open area, the sweater is thick and keeps you warm. The material is genuinely nice and kept in tact during washing. I'm thoroughly impressed with this item and look forward to ordering more as more colors become available." —SFISH

    2. A floral mini dress with an open back bordered by playful ruffles that scream "party in the back!"

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $22 (originally $44; available in sizes 2–8 and also in a star print version).

    3. A high-in-the-front, low-in-the-back skater dress you'll reach for every time you search your wardrobe for a going out outfit.,

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S–L).

    Promising review: "I was nervous, but it fit great and was super cute. The fabric is stretchy so it fits your body, and the flare at the bottom is perfect." —Shanequa St. Hill

    4. A bodysuit with the ~scoop~ (front and back!) on easy and cute dressing.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors, both with short and long sleeves).

    Promising review: "I love how this bodysuit makes any outfit look instantly sleek and polished. The crotch snaps are particularly nice for when you have to go to the bathroom, haha! I love to wear bodysuits with denim and heels, or with a skirt for a smooth and seamless outfit that looks like it was made it be one piece. My favorite part is the scoop back, which isn't too low (you can still wear a normal bra). You can also put the shoulders down so that it is a sexier off the shoulder look. I definitely recommend this bodysuit if you're on the fence." —Roxanne

    5. Or a turtleneck bodysuit perfect for pairing with your favorite A-line skirt or mom jeans.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    Get it from Amazon for $29.89+ (available in sizes S–3X).

    Promising review: "This top is just what I wanted. It fits well (not clingy) and the V-back is very nice and allows my butterfly tattoo to be exposed, which is what I wanted. No special undergarment is needed, a regular bra does not show in back or on shoulders. Stays put, does not drop off of shoulders. Stunning for an evening out, with jeans or with dress slacks. Compliments flowed when I wore this to a 'black & white' event! I am so delighted with this versatile top." —MizzGlow
