The halter neck dress is a classic style that can be updated in design to keep up with trends while still maintaining the overall halter neck look. It’s safe to say Marilyn Monroe’s figure flattering white halter neck dress in The Seven Year Itch displays how glamorous this style can be.

Gwyneth Paltrow was pictured wearing a striking black halter neck dress with a cut out design at the recent Iron Man Premiere in New York.
As well as glam events like those above the halter neck dress can also be a great casual summer dress. It’s an excellent light travel companion that doesn’t take up much room. It can be worn as day wear and to cover up your swimwear as well as dressing it up for a romantic evening in the sun. It’s a perfect sophisticated cut for all occasions.
As mentioned this style of dress is very versatile and can adapt beautifully to new trends and with other styles, like backless designs and maxi styles. The empire waistline styles are great if you want to elongate your frame especially when it is coupled with a full feminine flared style.
The variations of halter dresses are endless, some have deep plunging v necks whilst others have a sweetheart neckline and others square designs and then there are silk styles to satin.
