Helpful Ideas With Halftee Layering Fashions for Dresses

I’ve introduced halftee layering fashions earlier this year when it was much warmer outside. Yet, you might be happy to know that Halftee offers 3/4 length sleeves, long sleeves, and even turtleneck options.

Does anyone else get annoyed that so many dresses are sleeveless? Sure, that’s great for the summer, but how about for the colder months? Therefore, when I chose these longer sleeve halftees, I inventoried my dresses that would benefit from them. Most versions come in many different colors along with sizes up to 6X (check the curvy collection).

BTW, here are tips to help find your correct size.

If you do purchase any halftees through my link, I do receive a small commission. Yet this also means I can offer you 20% off with code Jtouch20. Although if you are really interested in these products, I’d also keep an eye out for sales. They have sales from time to time, and even though you can’t use my discount with the sales, if you go through my link it also helps the company to know that blogger marketing really works.

Navy Bell Sleeve Halftee Layering Fashions

I have a couple of darker blue dresses that could use some sleeves, so I chose this bell sleeve option in navy.

Now I lightened the photos enough that you can see the difference between the dresses and the halftee, but in real life, it wasn’t super obvious. Then again, is it bad to layer like this? We layer over our dresses without a second thought, so why not under them?

The above dress was my grandmother’s lace dress. I wore it for a post about dressing up vintage chic. It wasn’t planned but I really like how the ruffles mirror the peplum of the waist!!

Below is one of the pieces from my very first Fashom box. You can see in that post how the dress looks with a layer over it, and without any layer.

While I wouldn’t normally wear the dress with jeans, I like how it looked.

Insider tip: If you’ve never tried online fashion boxes, I give the scoop on 3 different ones here.

3/4 Lace Halftee Layering Fashions

I like the idea of a lace halftee because it seems dressier to go with my dresses. They also have the lace version in long sleeves along with sheer ones too that could work.

This long dress was actually my bestie’s who passed away. I’ve worn it to a gala a couple of winter’s ago with a different top underneath.

PS. If you are wondering why you don’t see my bra in the back, it’s because I’m still trying out some strapless bras and this one is backless.

This dress I picked up at Goodwill in Denver. I’ve worn it to a gala before and even for shopping in the winter.

And a velvet dress is made for winter, yet I always need some kind of wrap with it, until I found the Halftees.

I even wondered how the lace would work under an open-shoulder dress. I think this could be a great idea under open shoulder tops and sweaters too. Anyplace where there is an opening that you might like covered.

Do You Need a Halftee?

I think the idea of a halftee for your layering is brilliant if you don’t want the extra bulk around your midsection. And if you tend to be on the warm side, and don’t need the extra coverage for heat.

However, if you need warmth, then you may prefer a full top. It’s not impossible to find ones that are thin and would work. In fact, I have a couple of lace and sheer tops that do cover my midsection that I use with some of these dresses.

    Such great ideas! I see these half tops all the time on clearance but I always pass over them. Now I'll grab a few.

    Your dresses are really nice, all of them, but the look you created with the black dress and the gold are especially stunning. You look great in both. I don’t especially like wearing dresses but these would change my mind if they belonged to me.
