Halter-tops or dresses have been around for a very long time. The Halter style has been traced as far back as to the early days of India, where the Halter style was favored both by queens and other women of royal descent. The Halter style probably originated in Africa, where women preferred it’s styling because of its comfort and practical nature in hot and tropical climates. The Halter style eventually became very popular in the 1930’s amongst Hollywood starlets. The style was elegant, seductive and sensual and it also created an image of glamour that was essential to the actresses of this era.
The Halter style, by design is somewhat provocative in it’s nature but is also very flattering to most women as it draws the eye inward, creating a slimming effect around the neckline. Halter styling is recognizable by its straps that usually tie around the neck, leaving the back and arms fully exposed. Another variation of the Halter leaves a strip of fabric down the center of the back, once again leaving the arms and upper/mid-back exposed.
