6 Takes on the Scoop Back Party Dress

Writing about scoop back dresses the other day, I realized that the trend is everywhere! Whether you're looking for formal, semi formal or party dresses, you'll have every reason to show off sculpted shoulders and smooth skin this season.

Here's 6 great scoop back party dresses!

From the front, your eye can't resist the necklace type impact that sequins create on this halter dress. Radiating lines extend from the high neck, accentuated by cut outs that mimic petals on the front bodice. Looking at this sleeveless party dress, you'd never expect that deep scoop back! But what drama it adds to an lbd!

I can't resist prints on party dresses, so of course this sequin dress from Ruby Rox gets my vote. With three quarter length sleeves and a boat neck, this shift is an easy to wear choice that could be styled for nights out with the girls or winter dances. While the sequins look like they may sway, they really are stitched to the fabric for a cool, shimmery look. Kind of retro, very sexy...The scoop back styling moves it into 2015.

Navy has become a new black for cocktail dresses. This scoop back dress combines lace, chiffon and sequins with a deep V neck accented with cut out bands. The chiffon bodice drapes gracefully, creating a blouson effect over the pencil skirt. With all of this detail, do I need to mention the V angle to show off your back? I guess that's just icing on the party dress cake!

I'd feel very exotic wearing this scoop back sequin dress. Rays of turquoise, black, bronze and silver sequins cover the entire tank dress. A front and back scoop neck is a great way to show off those bands of color. Let me channel my inner Cleopatra when I wear this scoop back dress.


Pleats and playful both start with the same letter, but rarely do I think of them as companions. This scoop back dress does it beautifully. Beaded shoulder straps and side inserts sparkle on the front while carefully pleated chiffon wisps around your every move. A beaded back strap keeps this scoop back dress very wearable. I can imagine sparkling night breezes as a perfect way to show off this dress on the red carpet. I can also imagine how the beaded side inserts creates an hourglass figure for everyone!

It may be winter, but this season, party dresses with scoop backs are definitely on the scene. Will you wear an open back dress this holiday season?
