A fashion dream that is a timeless and classic silhouette is the halter neck dress. Most consider this style of dress a millennial trend however, this style has actually been around for decades. If there are parts of your body that you would rather not flaunt this ensemble helps steer attention away from your problem areas and helps highlight the parts that you want to accentuate like your neck, shoulders, and legs. Three of my favorite words that describe halter necks are stylish, timeless and cute!
What Is A Halter Dress?!
A halter dress has bands or straps that go around the back of your neck and tie in the back to help hold up the top. There are halter dress fashions with sleeves however, most halter styles are sleeveless. A majority of halter dress styles will generally have two straps that connect together in the back. But, there are some that have just one strap that goes around the back of the neck and connects on the other side.
The Shape Of A Halter Dress
The straps that create a halter neck are a stylish and flattering neckline option will generally feature a high neck with a backless design, but this can vary. You will also discover necklines in halter dress styles that offer low cut necklines with straps that connect high on the back of the neck, or necklines that feature a high neck in the front and back of the dress.
Which Body Type Is A Halter Dress Flattering For?
Halter necklines are timeless because they create a balancing effect by drawing eyes upward and showing off shoulders and the neck. Many body shapes look amazing in this dress style however, it is perfect if you have a fuller bust!
Halter Dress With Sleeves
For more formal events or just for cooler weather, halter dresses with sleeves are a wardrobe essential. Whether you attending a wedding, party, or special occasion it is possible to wear a halter neckline all still while being able to cover your arms.
