You probs thought the halter tops of the early 2000s were gone for good, but they’re baaaaaaack

And at least now I can wear them without asking my parents for permission.

Um, is the year 2020 or 2000? I ask because everyone’s walking around like an extra on MTV’s TRL, wearing halter tops. And I’m…kinda not mad at the return of this throwback trend, tbh.

Before you let flashbacks of exposed thongs and jelly shoes from the early aughts haunt you, hear me out: Halter tops are going to be the hero of all our summer outfits this year, because…

  1. They are ridiculously easy to wear with anything, from miniskirts to jeans and trousers.
  2. If you’re ready to give the off-the-shoulder look a little break, it’s actually a great alternative.

Not convinced? These gorge recent sightings of celebs wearing the trend prove the retro look is back and here to stay (well, at least while it’s warm).

In case you’re wondering, fashionistas and influencers are also taking the shoulder-exposing trend to the streets.

What I love most about these tops is that there’s one for every mood.

Let’s say you’ve got outdoor plans with the fam and you don’t wanna wear anything too revealing. A high-neck halter top is here for you. What if you feel like showing some skin for the heck of it (as you should)? Good news, cuz there are plenty of plunging options too.
