I love the way her top hugs her neck and curves to reveal her gorgeous shoulders. It reminds me of the time Leighton Meester used a halter dress to create a sexy illusion of curves. If you're feeling this chic halter look, shop some Fab-approved picks below.
I love layering, but it gets a little tedious rummaging through my drawers for the "right" tank or tees. That why this new style, layered halters, is so clever. They take the work out of having to think about what to layer, and you'll never have to hunt through your dresser again. Even better, the styles available are more artsy and unique. Functional and phenomenal? I'll take it.
Different necklines tell a unique story. V-necks, for example, give off a va-va-voom vibe, while cowl necks take the sweet and sexy route. Who would have thought necklines could say so much without speaking anything at all. Take my quiz to see if you can differentiate one fashion neckline from the other. Good luck!
Halter queens infiltrated the red carpet tonight. Actresses like January Jones (left), Penelope Cruz, Olivia Wilde, Diane Lane, Jane Krakowski, Julia Ormond and newcomer Freida Pinto, all wore different colors and patterns, but they had one thing in common: Halter necklines. January's Andrew Gn halter dress was one of the most eye-catching. Other halter styles came in reds, periwinkles, chiffons, velvet, and white. Check them out.
I've never had major problems finding the right bra for a particular top, but I have a bigger-busted friend for whom finding the right bra is a constant battle. Over the weekend, she and I got ready together before heading out for a night on the town, and that is when I witnessed her struggle. She wore a halter top, much like this Theory Kensy Halter Top ($180). Having fairly large breasts, she stays away from strapless bras because they give her that unflattering line across her chest. She wanted to wear her regular bra but didn't want the straps to show because of the halter cut.

Every gal loves a halter every once in a while - it's a pretty sexy neckline. And when the heat kicks in halters just call out ease and comfort. I like them because I don't necessarily have to wear a bra, which is a rarity for bra-loving me. Halters come in several different shapes and forms so I thought it would be handy to know what works for your bod. Here are a few tips!
- This bebe Silk Trim Gathered Halter Top, $54 is ideal to accentuate a small bust; the wide-set straps create the illusion of a fuller chest and the Ruching in the center furthers the effect.
- I adore this Ella Moss Halter Ruffle Dress, $175. The ruffles and plunging neckline balance out broad shoulders & bring attention front and center.
- This Obus Paris Dress, $325 is a great fit for a large-busted gal. The straight-across front provides coverage, while the straps square off in the middle playing down cleavage.
- A fun little top, this Arden B. green jeweled halter, $88 is ideal for narrow shoulders. The thin crossed straps in front won't overwhelm a slender frame - and they hug the base of the neck, making shoulders appear wider.
