Shoulders get the gold medal in these looks.
Summer may be over, but it’s easy to stay in the swim of things. As seen here around town, poolside racer backs prove a winning look on dry land. “The cut is very flattering and versatile from day to night,” says Brittney Rothweiler, women’s buyer for The Tannery apparel store in Harvard Square. Though athletic-inspired, the new styles can be quite elegant in slinky fabrics with sequins or zipper detailing, she adds. “And if your bra straps will show, make sure they’re dressy, not basic.” With this trend, guaranteed, you won’t fade into the background.
