It's tough not to sound like a broken record when nearly all of the trends for 2021 can be traced back to the 1990s.

Halter neck tops appear to suit every body shape and style. Whether you’re going to a concert, running errands, or even a red carpet, this top will give you the sexy look while keeping it classy.
