This Throwback Halter Top Trend Will Complete Your Summer Wardrobe

But really, the trend can work for any occasion, depending on how you style it—with cut off shorts and sneakers for a casual summer day, vintage jeans and heels for dinner plans, or even a satin midi skirt for an elegant, elevated outfit.
