This noughties trend is making its way back into our wardrobes, but with a more grown-up approach.

Jeans and a cute top is a fail-safe combo we reach for on repeat, but if you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe with new cute pairings, the halterneck top is a front runner this season.

Although we might be parking our jeans for the next few weeks, halterneck tops are equally as cool when paired with shorts and skirts and provide a whole load of versatility – whether you’re spending summer in the city or parking yourself in the Mediterranean. Going to an evening event? Look for chic, silk styles for understated glamour or elevate your festival attire with a bold colour or pattern that’ll ensure you stand out from the crowd.

From sexy styles to crochet knits and tropical prints, here are 24 tops to shop now and wear all summer.

London-label Harmur favours the halterneck style and I've worn this green velvet number three summer's in a row.

If you've given your trusty tank tops a run for their money, a silky halterneck top will elevate a pair of high-waisted shorts for both day and night.
