halter cutout this summer

Dresses with slits, bando tops, and bandannas from the ’90s instead of sconces this summer are super trendy – so are halter tops and halter dresses, they beautifully emphasize the shoulder line.

Dresses with slits

A fan of such a cutout was Princess Diana. Lady Di’s favorite designer Catherine Walker often designed clothes for her to show the beautiful figure and shoulders of the princess. There were dresses with traditional or spectacular rectangular necklines, as well as cutouts that completely cover the chest.

We should thank designer Madeleine Vionnet for the invention of this beautiful type of clothes. She designed dresses with this cutout in the 1920s – long before Marilyn Monroe appeared in her legendary white light outfit.

Fashionistas of those years fell in love with halter dresses thanks to Vionnet. In the 1930s and 1940s, the cutout began to be used in swimsuits. Girls of 1950s, 1970s, 1990s adored beautifully opened shoulders – tops and halter dresses find their admirers in every decade.
