Considering how freezing cold it is up in the Northeast, the Shirt Snob can't imagine anyone actually wearing this next top, but we do realize that not everyone had to deal with the changing seasons. The Halter Top by T Bags is just perfect for warmer weather. It has ruching at the bust and back, banding at the empire waist, and a braided banding at the V-Neck. The bottom hem is unfinished, and there is also braided straps that tie behind the neck. It comes in a brown print and a mulit colored print.

The Shirt Snob loves the layered look, so we really like this next top, the Double Layered Contrast Triangle Top by T Bags. This halter looks like you're really wearing two tops. It has two braided spaghetti straps that tie in the back, an empire waist, and ruching at the waist. It's sexy and fun and we love it!

As we've mentioned in the past, we love plaid. Here is another cute plaid top that isn't so country. Unfortunately the site we found it on doesn't tell us what it's called, but it's a halter and it's by LaROK. There are ties on either side to create a bubble bottom, it's 100% silk, has a keyhole in the neck and empire waist, and it ties behind the neck. The plaid consists of green, reddish brown, tan blue, and orange colors. If you love to dress up for fall as much as we do, this is a great top to choose! Also comes in a darker plaid, but we aren't quite as fond of it.

This top is really fun, so even though you may not get a ton of use out of it with fall coming (unless you're lucky and live in a warmer area than the Shirt Snob), we decided we had to show it to you. The Halter with Natural Wooden Beads by Who Cares is made of 100% silk. There is smocked banding at the waist, small bow details where the necklace hits the blouse, and the wooden beads, which have a clasp in the back, act as the tie keeping the top on. The necklace can also be worn separately. Besides brown, it also comes in red with navy beads. While you're looking at this halter, also check out the vendor, Rapunzel's Closet. They have a great new look to their website!

It's been a while since we showed you anything from ingwa; melero, so let's change that. The Zaragoza Top is 100% silk and lined, with a V-neck, spaghetti strap halter that crosses in the back, and an empire waist with ruching. The body blousing out from there. The bust and a panel below the waist has a beautiful floral patterned embroidery. Four button closures are at the back. Comes in three colors, coral, white, and blush. If you like this top, you may also like the Zaragoza Halter Dress, which is actually on sale!
This next top definitely can't be pulled off by just anyone, but it's so cute and girly that we hope some of you will try. The Lace Trimmed Doll Halter by Cynthia Steffe has a halter top neck with two straps going down it to the body in the back. There is tulle-ruffles and lace along the bust, and the neck and straps are woven with silk ribbons. The back is smocked and there's a large ruffle at the bottom. It comes in two colors, peach blossom and tea.

Elastic banding is at the empire waist, there is ruching at the bust, and spaghetti straps tie behind the neck.

The Salsa Top by Susana Monaco is has a V-neck, banding at the empire waist, ruching at the top of the bust, and it ties behind the neck. It's very soft and comes in six colors, midnight, marmalade, rainforest, lilypad, firecracker red, and brown. There's also the Salsa Dress if you like the halter.
