THT- Halter Tops are Hot for Summer 2022

We’re hot. The temperatures are soaring. Halter tops are also hot for Summer 2022.

Season of the Halter

Summer is the season for a halter top. There are many styles out there right now, and I featured one yesterday IN THIS POST.

Both of these styles have a flowy bodice and focus on the neckline. Halter’s do that and show off your shoulders.

I used to think my shoulders were too wide, but once you know how to dress them, there really isn’t a concern.

(Not to mention I do a lot to strengthen and build my shoulders doing weightlifting and paddleboarding)

If you aren’t into wearing crop tops, or cut out blouses, but want something light and a bit more elegant, a halter top might do the trick!

I love a flowy halter top like this with a slimmer bottom silhouette like these white jeans by Denizen (Levi). My ever-used white rattan bag makes a summer statement as does my Zara strappy heels.

A dressy halter makes a lovely date night or night out piece, and I also love the look with trousers.

If you are wearing a more flowy halter, consider balancing it with a more streamlined fit for your bottoms. Conversely, if you are wearing a fitted halter, balance it with a wide leg jean, a skirt, something a bit more away from the body.

What’s great about this halter too, is that you could transition it nicely to Fall when the weather gets colder. I could see it with a red blazer and some booties as an example.

Halter dresses are also a great style to get the same effect. I love this one from Mango with a bold floral print and chiffon material.  The colors in this pretty summer halter dress would transition nicely into Fall with a pair of cognac boots and a long cardi or moto jacket.

Life Lately

July has been busy as well as there are quite a few birthdays we celebrate. We are celebrating my niece (turning 12) and my mom on the 30th. My birthday was the 8th and we had a great celebration at a tapas bar. (Italian). Our Anniversary was the 14th, (21 years) and we celebrated this weekend at a place near us called, Epic Chophouse. I don’t eat read meat or pork, so of course I got the fish. Nothing like Chilean Sea bass to wet your whistle! Mmm. Hubby got the bacon wrapped scallops and we enjoyed a bottle of Bordeaux.  It has been so hot here lately, as I guess it is in many places. (Even England has a heat wave!).

    I’m a fan of halter necks because shoulders don’t seem to age like other body parts! I love the print of this one, it looks great with the white jeans!

    Love the colors in the print top. That splash of orange is perfect for the “autumn” palette while also bringing in the pink color. Thanks for hosting the link-up.

    That top is so so pretty. I am going to look for some halter tops. I had stopped buying them but I will give them another go. I also need to do weights. Great arms….

      Thank you Hilda. Yes, they are just the right mix of cooler ( for the heat) and chic. Oh, thank you.

    You look great in halter tops! I tend not to wear them because I have such slopey shoulders, but you’re inspiring me to give them another try 🙂

    I love the comfortability of halter tops. I have a few in my closest, and they’re probably my favorite things to wear.

    Halter tops are a great option during the hot, humid summer months. Both the gingham one you wore in yesterday’s post and this one are beautiful on you! I especially love the colors of this floaty floral with your hair. Happy birthday and anniversary to you-what an active month of celebrations July has been for you! Thanks for sharing, and have a good week!

    SUCH a pretty look! I always love white pants during the summer (or anytime, really). The bold pattern and colors really make this outfit pop! So pretty on you!

    I think halter tops are really flattering! I have a dress and a couple tops in that style and always feel pretty in them. This one is really pretty with the pink print and of course beautiful with white!

    Belated, happy birthday Jess! This is such a beautiful halter top, and I agree they’re a nice alternative to crops and other summer tops. I love that a halter takes the attention away from my not-so-toned up arms (unlike cap sleeves and muscle styles)

    Hi Jess, Such a pretty halter! I love a halter as long as I can wear a bra with it! lol
    One fo the dresses you shared in the shop section-the flowy dress from Mango-I just bought that to wear for a wedding in August and it’s beautiful.
    I’m still trying to figure out how to add my posts-definitely not tech savvy here! xo, Michele

    Oh Jess, I’m so thrilled to have nabbed the favourite post slot! Big thanks to you and your readers.
    You look lovely in the halter necks you’ve been posting and these days bra arrangements are so versatile and many, unlike back in the early 70s when I first wore halters and the only option was to go bra-less!
    And yes, here in the British Isles we’ve just come through a pretty darned hot heatwave, and a halter neck would have been perfect for our weather.
    Hugs Mary xxx.
