Vintage 1950s Women's Fashion

Halter Top

          Most summer tops were blouses, often in cotton, with no sleeves. The Halter Blouse/top was a summer favorite throughout the 1950s. These often came in loud floral prints, bold colorful checks. They could have two thick straps that tied or buttoned in the back or slid behind the neck. Some had a zipper down the back or side. Other halter tops styles had a very low back.  They were modest in front, and immodest in back, which was acceptable.

          Another summer top was the spaghetti strap top. The thickness of the straps varied year to year. Another popular style for the hot summer days and night. The halter top style was also popular in dresses.
