At 68 years old, sometimes I think that I am really pushing the fashion bug thing. Recently I surprised myself by actually buying a halter top! While it might not be a big deal for some of you, for me it was. I know there are some things I have to think of letting go of, but…. well this one really caught my eye. Doing my favorite thing, which is browsing the internet, I found this cute halter top on Amazon for $14, which I believe is an excellent price. I had decided that once I received it if I had had the slightest hesitation while trying it on, I would have sent it back. But, I absolutely loved it. I love the color and I love the wide straps.
Halter tops have been around the fashion scene for quite awhile. The word “halter” derives from a German word meaning anything that is held. And the halter style in fashion was first introduced in Hollywood in the 1930’s with women’s gowns which was considered risque for that time. Swimwear also began showing up with this style in the 1940’s and 1950’s. This fashion style actually peaked during the 60’s and 70’s but a remnant of fashion wear still shows up today in tops, dresses, swimwear and jumpsuits.
If you feel more comfortable, adding a stylish shawl, scarf or summer jacket is also an option.
Remember those Pre-COVID days when we used to go shopping with our friends and when we chose something, they would say, “No, I don’t think that works for you”…. well, I kind of miss that. Online shopping does not have that filter for you in making decisions on whether to buy or not. But the point when you are shopping is to have fun and if it feels comfortable and looks appropriate, why not? So my question to you is this, “Halter Top…. Do you Dare to Wear?
