If you're finding it a bit tricky to pin down what exactly is a halter top, here's a tip: always look back, literally. You have yourself a halter when the neckline of your top just wraps around your neck and leaves the upper portion of your back uncovered, making for an effortlessly sultry moment when worn.
This makes them the preferred pieces for many beach babes and streetwear enthusiasts alike. With varying neckline styles, the humble halter top certainly allows itself to be worn through a myriad of ways. The ten influencer OOTDs we rounded up below are proof that anyone can rock them in whatever way they please. Scroll away and glean some inspo!
