    When to Wear a Halter-Neck Dress, Formal Halter Evening Gown, or Halter Prom Dress?

    Halter-neck dresses are a great choice for any event, casual or formal, to flatter the figure and grab attention with a statement-making cut. Halter tops are edgy, yet seductive, adding stylish support to any garment without the need for straps. While this chic trend is still current, the halter top first grew in popularity in the U.S. in the 1930s as a way to keep straps from interfering with the striking effect of an open back. Softly extending up from the bodice and connecting across the neck, halter tops often take the form of a bow above the shoulders. Over the course of the years, halter tops have graced swimsuits, prom dresses, and evening gowns, taking on a life of their own with a unique approach to fashion.

    From the signature white halter dress worn by Marilyn Monroe to the tops donned in the 90s by Britney Spears, halter tops are timeless and have gotten a new edge with the addition of modern design features. At Simply Dresses, this collection of halter-neck dresses allows you to make your own style choice. A dress with a halter top reveals the shoulders and displays an open back so that the arms can move with ease. This added freedom makes dancing comfortable. Heading to a warm weather event? With no sleeves, halter-neck dresses mean more air to stay cool and offer up a look hotter than than the temperature.

    Halter-neck prom dresses are often paired with a slenderizing v-neck, adding a seductive appeal. Other formal halter evening gowns might consist of a sophisticated high neckline or racer front for a modest, yet eye-catching approach. Casual high-neck dresses offer the same versatility and perks, making this style appropriate for any day of the year.

    Wear a floor-length beaded halter dress with side slits and a long train for a pageant, or a lovely red sparkly sequin halter-neck party dress to your next holiday or New Year’s party. A beautiful pastel or jewel-toned ball gown with a halter top is ideal for prom or a sweet-sixteen celebration. Long halter-neck dresses are great for bridesmaids and make excellent court dresses for a Quinceanera. Many of the halter dresses and gowns in this collection are available in shades of whites and creams. Just imagine your wedding gown or rehearsal-dinner dress with a halter top?

    If you're a fashionista in need of a hot, trendy, sexy, romantic, or fun halter dress, Simply Dresses can help. In this collection, discover short halter dresses, long dresses with halter necks, and even high-low halter-top dresses for day or night, casual or formal.
