Who doesn’t love layering? Especially when it comes to Florida in the winter – this is necessary! It can go from hot to cold in no time flat, so layers make it possible to stay comfortable in our bipolar climate. I also enjoy wearing sheer or knitted tops, so camisoles, tanks, and the like are an essential part of my wardrobe. I was thrilled to discover Halftee as a new solution in versatile, fashionable layering.
The Halftee brand began as a “basement” project by CEO Amanda Barker. In short order, it has taken off, with support of global QVC outlets and more. Halftees are t-shirts that are cropped just below the bust line for comfortable layering. The product line is diverse – with tanks, short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, long sleeves, v-necks, scoop necks, turtlenecks, and a plethora of additional styles. They even come in lace! A variety of colors are also available, so you’re sure to find something that is perfect to complete any outfit your fashionista brain can conceive. Prices range from just under $10 to about $30. Obviously, versatility is the key when it comes to the Halftee line. Nothing beats options, right?
I received a Tank Halftee in cream to review, currently priced at $17.99 on Halftee.com.
The Tank Halftee is an amazing combination of comfortable and breathable cotton/modal/spandex blend fabric. Our signature “non-slip” band, and a tank for unbeatable coverage you can’t get anywhere else. It also features wider straps to cover undergarments. The Tank is perfect for those times when you need a little coverage. – Halftee.com
While I do love the Halftee, I have to admit that the tank style is incompatible with my wardrobe. Most of the shirts I layer with are tanks themselves, and I prefer to use sleeved shirts underneath them. It wasn’t really possible for me to find a good, suitable use for the tank in my outfit creations, but that certainly isn’t the fault of the product. As the company promises, it IS very “comfortable and breathable”, so it is perfect for all temperatures without regret! It is true to size, and stretchy enough to fit well, but snug – just as it should. I do love the variety of the product line, and I know that my wardrobe would benefit from many of the other styles and colors. Considering the price, and the ability to mix and match these items with multiple outfits – it’s a smart way to expand your wardrobe options in so many ways!
The only word of warning I feel inclined to issue is this… Be aware of the fabric used and the nature of it. That stretchy breathability wouldn’t be achieved with thick, tough, overly durable material, so be gentle! Pay careful attention to the washing instructions, and heed them. Unfortunately, mine arrived with a tiny tear in the neckline right from the start.
You would never imagine that so many different styles of layering could be found, but Halftee will convince you. Again – it’s all about the options, folks! Make sure to follow Halftee for sales, fashionable ideas and more. Find them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
