With summer an all-year occurrence in Singapore, the best way to keep cool is to don pieces that show a little skin. We say backless is the way to go — not only are such pieces fashionable and chic, the backless element adds a touch of sass and sensuality, not to mention breathability, so you can still look like your best self without suffering in the sweltering heat and humidity.
Here are 14 dresses you need to add to your wardrobe right away.
Featuring a plunging neckline and similar deep V-back, this bold lace piece is not one for the office. Reserve this fiery piece for weekend parties at the club and pair it with killer heels.

This fringed dress immediately brings to mind boho summer vibes. We love that you can cross the straps at the front to create a tantalising cut-out, and that the revealing low-scooped back is tempered by the long straps. Put its swishing silhouette to good use — slip into some heels and head to a dance party.
From the front, this strappy dress from La Ligne looks like a simple navy blue number with a V-neckline, but turn around and you’d see beautiful knotted straps in contrasting colours that show off your back. We love that it has pockets too. Go with blue velvet pumps for a monochromatic finish.
With capped sleeves and a princess-seamed bodice, this mint green number looks innocuous from the front, but shows off all your confidence at the back. Pair this feminine piece with your favourite jade accessories for a monochromatic finish.
Show off your vivacious side with this bold snake print bodycon piece. To pull it off, keep the rest of your look clean and simply pair with nude or silver pumps. Accessorise with simple, delicate earrings.
