The Shirt Snob has decided to make this Ya-Ya day because we found another top (also in gold!) that we are longing for from this designer. The Ipomoea Halter in Gold, although hard to pronounce, is an amazing shirt. There is a gold print that goes throughout the shirt as well as a gold band that goes beneath the bust line. The halter ties at the back of the neck in long, thick strands that hang down the back. There is also bead detailing on the bust and neck area. There is also a back zipper and ruching at the bust.

The Shirt Snob has found a new favorite top! The Charmeuse Halter Top with Rhinestone is the next shirt we want to buy. Made by Ingwa; Melero, this halter is silk and has a hidden zipper on the side. The detailing of the rhinestones is so spectacular and intricate, it's totally different than anything else we've seen and so unique with the circular holes. The green color is also stunning, it just pops out at you. Don't wear this halter if you don't want to be noticed! Also comes in lemon and berry.

Here is a halter top by Lotta Stensson that has fun written all over it. The Tie Back Spaghelli Top is one of the Shirt Snob's favorite tops of the moment from one of our favorite designers. The flowery embroidery is beautifully done, and we love the intricacy of the beading that goes all around this top. The shading of the colors down the shirt flows so well, and we love how the back is open giving this halter a lot of sex appeal. Available in both spice and plum, this halter is 100% hand embroidered silk, and it has a tie in the back as well as behind the neck.

Here is a great find if you are dying in the summer heat (Shirt Snob wouldn't know what that is like, it's only 65 degrees in Boston lately!). This MIJO Ring Halter is about as light weight of a top as you can find. Made out of cotton gauze, this shirt is semi see-through except in the bust area, which has another layer of gauze that ties around the back. Another look could be to leave the ties hanging down, which would still cover you up so you aren't showing the world your goods, but we think that look is rather ugly and unpolished.
A similar halter top is the McGinn Portabello Top. This shirt leaves a little more to the imagination, but it's still light weight and good for the summer. The halter part is a braid that you tie behind your neck. This item also comes in coral with the braid both coral and white.

The Charmeuse Ruffle Top by Robert Rodriguez is the perfect top for a night on the town in the summertime. The color is beautiful and the shape and style of the halter is attention-grabbing. The layers in front give it a flirty look, and the ruching on the top matches well with the crinkly nature of this silk fabric. The Shirt Snob loves the beads in the center of the bust, which reminds us of a brooch; the detailing gives this halter top a look of elegance. This blouse has three buttons in the back besides the halter tie around the neck.

Lotta Stensson is a great clothing line, and this halter top is another favorite of the Shirt Snob. We love everything and anything Indian, and this camisole has Indian influence written all over it in a modern and sexy way. The spaghetti straps are a great addition to the halter top. Most halter tops have a much bigger piece of material going around the neck but this look is quite common for Stensson. Her other spaghetti strap halters seem to tie behind the neck, so we’re figuring this one does also. This look is very feminine and flowy, similar to the rest of her line. You can see detail of the embroidery on the silk at Fashion Pulse the online boutique selling this piece. You can also see who wears Lotta Stensson's clothing on her site as well, the list seems to include most of Hollywood!
