It may be the middle of winter, but this shouldn't stop you from showing a little skin (without freezing your tush off in the process). Underneath your behemoth boyfriend coat, scarf, and god-knows-what-else, you don't need to wear another frumpy article of clothing. Instead, go all out in an open-back dress, perfect for a romantic evening out with your S.O. or tapas and drinks with your friends. Who's to say what's seasonally appropriate? We found 11 gorgeous dresses that offer a surprise reveal from behind. It's cold outside, but you can't always let Mother Nature win. (Just don't forget to layer.)
