While the cutout trend continues, it can be a little tricky to pull off on a mini dress. A little goes a long way in the wrong places! But look at these minis – when it comes to your back, you can bare it all (especially when you have high necklines like these). Even if you don’t feel like you’re bikini ready, odds are your back is looking good – take advantage! Bring sexy back this summer with these sweet little numbers…
