You are likely familiar with the halter style summer and spring dresses and this year you may find these traditional dresses may have more of a unique twist. The halter style is one many women tend to choose over the strapless dress because of the overall design of the dress.
For women with fuller figures, the halter dress is a better option than the strapless dress and this is only one of the reasons this spring dress is here to stay for the foreseeable future. In this article we are going to go through some of the additions and changes to this traditional dress so you know what to look for when you’re shopping for springs top trends.
The original halter dress offers the tie neck or neck closure and a flowing dress that generally stops just about the knee. This year we are going to see this as the base but with ruffles, bows and ties to create an even more unique look utilizing the traditional base style of this dress. In my opinion, one of the best changes with this dress is the neck closure.
In the past many of the halter dresses had only a tie closure with two thick pieces of material you were meant to tie in a knot to secure your dress. This created a bumping and awkward look, which could be especially seen if you had short hair or an up-do. Now, this spring the halter dresses have plastic closures or snaps to avoid the tie altogether which I believe is a great improvement.
Now, in regards to the neckline you can choose from scoop neck, V-neck or the cowl neck as the most popular choices this year. With the V-neck option you will likely see an empire waist to break up the dress itself and then a completely flowing and loose dress that can be floor length or above the knee in length. Just as with the maxi dresses this year, the halter dress can be found in a large variety of patterns and colors and the bolder the better this year.
The cowl neck dress is a bit fancier than the casual wear versions of this dress. This style of halter dress can easily be worn to a wedding or formal occasion and comes in silky materials to complete the upscale look.
Many women don’t think of halter dresses as fancy but you may be surprised just how many fancy versions of this dress are available today. You will find you also have a choice in regards to how the halter dress fits as well. Whether you are looking for something loose fitting or form fitting, you can find it within the dress trend.
Start the spring season off right and bust into the halter dress trend. Casual clothing today has evolved so much it no longer resembles casual wear! You can wear this dress practically anywhere and this is what makes it a great investment and addition to your current wardrobe.
