Party Style: 10 Ways To Make An Exit
When viewed from behind, there is no outright way to grasp the character of a person except by his or her posture (is it rigid? slumped?), mane (or lack thereof), and the solid wall otherwise known as his or her back. Without eye contact and the contours of a face to put a name and opinion to, one’s backside has the potential to tell a story wildly different from the front—and how lucky for us that this is delectably the case for the fall season. Slivers of skin flash by in discreet and unexpected slits. Madly printed rear panels announce a monochrome suit’s split personality. A dress appears reserved, even prudish, from the front, but a one-eighty turn reveals a startlingly exposed back; we dare you to count the vertebrae. This is your chance to claim the big reveal, to flaunt your backside and steal the last, lingering look as you exit the room.
