It’s the item that can be sporty, sexy or downright chic. Our edit of the best halter neck tops proves that small can be mighty. A halter neck top could be one of the most useful pieces of clothing you add to your fashion collection this summer and since there were over 630 appearances of halter necks at the Spring 2022 designer catwalk shows and presentations, there has been a predictable flurry of this sweet style into the shops. The high street has fallen for the halter neck tops’ effortless versatility (and the fact it goes brilliantly with any pair of jeans and you’re set to go…)
When a classic cotton tank top just feels too basic (even though we are first to admit we adore their minimalist vibes) a halter neck top is the ideal choice to elevate even the simplest ‘fits into something special. While the patterns, prints and fabrics you choose can give your halter neck a totally individual vibe, having your shoulders and back on show definitely feels more glamorous than if you were wearing a basic white t-shirt. Obviously the perfect partner to the perennial jeans-and-a-nice-top combo, a halter neck is also the ideal choice for your going Out Out outfits, if you add a mini skirt, and some statement gold jewellery.
You can make a halter neck elegant for evening with a silky bias cut midi skirt and strappy sandals or take them totally Y2K with baggy cargo pants and chunky trainers. Jersey or cotton versions work with denim shorts and dad sandals for a picnic.
