12 Scene-Stealing Swimsuits That Stun from the Back
Sorry, plunging necklines, saucy cutouts, and high-cut bikini bottoms. The sexiest detail of summer 2017’s hottest swimwear is on the back. Keep scrolling for 12 scene-stealing swimsuits that stun from the back (and, yes, still look stylish from the front).
Cheeky side cutouts, a bold starburst print, and a charming tie on the back? It must be our lucky day.
We don’t typically play favorites, but how can you not when sweet scallop cutouts are in the mix? Between the robin’s egg hue and the elegant piping, it’s only a matter of time before you’re embarking on a Grecian holiday in Santorini.
Epic color blocking, right this way. But that’s not all — we’re blown away by the effortlessly cool strappy back. We imagine Malibu Barbie would team this stunner alongside a baseball cap and pool slides for an afternoon spent cruising with the convertible top down.
Make an entrance like whoa with this metallic swimsuit featuring a risque back that may tempt you to reach for some cage heels and denim cutoffs for an upcoming GNO.
Itty-bitty bikini, you’ve been replaced. Let it be known: There’s nothing matronly about this noir one-piece with a DDG lace-up back.
Ballerina-inspired swimwear is still going strong, and we don’t hate it. File this plié-worthy ruffled suit under what to wear for a spa weekend with the girls.
Take it there — without causing too much of a stir by the kiddie pool — with this white haute one-piece featuring a mesh t-back silhouette. How’s that for some dramarama?
You’ve seen one LBS (little black swimsuit) and you’ve seen ‘em all, right? WRONG. Exhibit A: This one-shoulder maillot, complete with a wow-worthy bow back, is guaranteed to pack major slayage by the pool or rooftop cocktail lounge.
Skirt the line between sporty and sophisticated with this striped one-piece that calls for a game of pick-up volleyball on the beach. The peekaboo open back will have you more than covered for a stint in the Hamptons (Fourth of July weekend, perhaps?).
Being color enthusiasts, we’re naturally obsessed with these candy-hued stripes. Throw in a slew of adjustable straps and we’re all in.
Jump on the one-shoulder bandwagon with this after-hours-ready goldenrod swimsuit that proves less can equal so much more. The thin double back straps may be minimalist, but boy do they look Beyoncé-level fierce.
Bring forth a summer of scandal with this unassuming navy swimsuit that’s business in the front and party in the back. Don’t let the high-neck fool ya — the crossover straps provide more than enough drama.
