The Y2K halter neck trend is back & might be the most flattering trend for 2023
Halter tops and halter neck dresses are back for 2023. Along with lots of other Y2K trends like mini skirts, crop tops and metallics. Unlike crop tops, halter necks are one of the most flattering 2023 trends. They show off toned shoulders and backs and elongate bodies. It doesn’t matter whether they’re casual or crystal encrusted as seen on Bella Hadid and at Courrèges, Saint Laurent, Carolina Herrera, Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Staud Spring ’22 ready-to-wear (look 12) and Badgley Mischka NYFW February ’22 runway shows. Here’s the best of them from luxe for less to designer halter tops.

The whole fashion vibe for 2023 is fun and full on party mode, just watch AREA NYC’s fashion show to get the gist. So the most on trend halter necks for both tops and dresses for 2023 are in luxe fabrics or embellished, body flattering styles.

2023 is all about showing skin and these sexy halter dresses (aka halterneck) have the most stunning backless designs. A lot of these halter neck dresses also tie into the satin slip dress, cut out and sequin halterneck dress trend.

I ordered the red satin mini halter neck dress (top) for date night on the Vegas strip. It’s by Elliatt and runs true to size, it also has the sexiest low cut back. I loved it so much I ordered it in white too (below).
The gold sequin halter neck dress (above) was for the Palazzo Chairman suite and looks absolutely stunning when it catches the light. It looks more white than gold on the model than it does in real life (see picture above).
The best halter tops for 2023
The beauty of these styles is that you don’t need to worry about what necklace to wear with them. They’re easy to dress up with a mini skirt or down with jeans. If you have a pair of statement earrings you want to show off, a halter neck top is the perfect top to do it in. Along with a sleek bun to show off the neckline and sexy backless style.
Best designer halter tops
These designer halter tops are right on trend for 2023. I love how fun the bright colors trending for 2023 are and how comfortable luxe fabrics like satin are. Dress them down with jeans or go full on glam. If you’re looking for a neon style MSGM’s neon green top is a statement piece. My absolute favorite is the AREA crystal encrusted top for a glam night out and for the beach Versace’s breezy scarf top.
