When we first saw the A-list celebs debuting their back jewellery on the red carpet, we knew this twist on the humble necklace was one to watch. Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway tested the ‘reverse necklace’ waters at the 2013 Oscars, but 2014 saw this micro red carpet trend turn major with everyone from Kate Hudson to Cara Delevingne sporting a back-adorning piece.
Back bling, however, is not only reserved for those lucky enough to have a red carpet beneath them – cobblestones and concrete work too! Whether you opt for a short statement style or a barely there chain its simple to achieve this look. Look out for necklaces with a hidden clasp or even better no fastening at all, like this beautiful pearl necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane – a sure fire way to add an air of elegance to any occasion.
Pop on your most plunging dress, moisturise for super seductive skin and drape your necklace over a smooth glowing back. We recommend Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Self-Tanning Milk to attain that Hollywood sun-kissed shimmer. Check out our favourite pieces to embellish your back with below, all available to SHOP now.
