Try This Sophisticated New Take On The Halter Neckline

Showing off a little skin doesn’t always require a plunging v-neck dress or a mini skirt. Lately, we’ve spotted celebrities like Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Lawrence, and Miranda Kerr wearing a sophisticated take on the halter neckline. The striking silhouette, which perfectly highlights the collarbone and shoulders, alludes to spring’s athletic-inspired trend in a subtle, elevated way. At turns glamorous (Lawrence’s futuristic Lanvin dress) or playful (Saldana’s whimsical Carven print), this new neckline bares just the right amount of skin for understated allure.
