We’ve already written about the halterneck top with some ‘top tips’ for how to make this fantastic and versatile style work best for your body type. The halterneck is a classic fashion statement that works equally well for lingerie, swimsuits, daytime and eveningwear. The halterneck dress is perhaps the most elegant of all the halterneck variations, combining the provocative exposure of the back with the delicate femininity of a short, long, fitting or flowing dress.
The most iconic halterneck dress of all time is the white dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in Seven Year Itch. Who can forget that moment when it blew up over he knees, the sexist wardrobe malfunction ever by far. She demurely leans forwards with a cheeky smile, legs apart, whilst holding her arms between her legs to prevent her dress from blowing up any higher, purposely accentuating the cleavage in the front of her dress. Now if that’s not a pose that literally screams sexy, please tell us what is?
Even though there was only one Marilyn Monroe, we can all share in the sexiness of the halterneck dress style. From a relaxed, summer print with a full skirt, to a form-fitting, jaw-dropping ‘little black cocktail dress’ with a deeply plunging backline and super-stylish up-do, you too can use the halterneck style to create your own ‘Seven Year Itch’. It’s the ultimate in fantastically flirty fashion.
The halterneck dress makes its own fashion statement as a style that simply works in a variety of situations. So why not start with a sure thing and then take it a giant sexy step further? Check out the Celine Short Black Halterneck Tutu Dress, the Calien Short Black Halterneck Bare-Bottom Dress, and the Gina Short Black PVC Halterneck Corset Dress. Try one of these and you may be echoing the words of Miss Marilyn herself: “I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.”
