Spam the Neckline – Halter

Halterneck is a style of women’s clothing strap that runs from the front of the garment around the back of the neck, generally leaving the upper back uncovered. The name comes from livestock halters. The word “halter” derives from the Germanic words meaning “that by which anything is held”.

The Duchess of Sussex stepped out for the evening reception after her wedding, wearing a Stella McCartney halter and upping the glamour content by hopping into a convertible with her new husband. Straight out of 1930s movie, there.
